The Super Nintendo is making another comeback thanks to the fine folks at Analogue, who will begin shipping their new “Super Nt” console sometime next month.
The Super Nt prides itself on being built on an FPGA (an actual circuit) as opposed to making use of emulation techniques. As such, you’ll be able to play all of your Super Nintendo and Super Famicom (yes, it features full playability across all NTSC and PAL systems!) games on actual hardware, with 100% accuracy to boot. The system makes use of an HDMI port to deliver an actual 1080p (“Full HD”) signal to your TV, rather than sending a traditional low-resolution image that has to be stretched by the TV itself. This results in supremely sharp pixels that make for a pleasant viewing experience on a modern TV. The system is also compatible with the wireless controllers from 8bitdo, so you won’t find yourself tethered to the TV anymore!
Analogue’s Super Nt begins shipping in February 2018 and will cost $189.99. They are taking pre-orders now!
The company also makes the “Nt Mini,” which will run NES and Famicom cartridges as well as actual Famicom Disk System disks, but that one will set you back a whopping $499.99!
