Given that today’s technology has evolved significantly since the NES launched back in 1983, Seattle-based Analogue specialises in revamping Nintendo’s famous consoles for the modern age – think high definition – under the Analogue Nt brand.
In its own words, the company says of the NES: “Today, to experience its greatness, options are limited and riddled with compromises. The Analogue Nt sets a precedent. It opens a door to the highest quality way to experience the NES.
“We created the Analogue Nt to experience this pivotal part of gaming history with the quality and justice it deserves.”
Having achieved success with the $499 Analogue Nt, the gaming firm has upped the ante with the launch of a new model – a $4,999 version that is plated in 24 carat gold.

The $4,999 package will include:
- 24 carat gold plated Analogue Nt
- Premium limited edition box
- The Legend of Zelda (original gold coloured cartridge)
