In this current generation, there are so many ways to play Super Nintendo games on multiple recreations of SNES consoles but the Super Nt looks like the best of them all, even though it’s tad expensive.
Playing retro games on a modern day HDTV is something most people love because of the nostalgic feel it offers and there’s no such title on any other console, be it the Playstation 4 or the Xbox One. A lot of indie games are trying to be wannabes but Nintendo is strict about patent rights and an official console is the only way to play them.
The NES Classic and SNES Classic are the two major hardware available right now priced relatively cheap at less than $70. It has about two dozen games but 100s of titles from the past were missed out and these cheap plastic consoles are never going to do the titles justice.
Enter Super Nt, made by Analogue. The company is known for bringing classic games to modern machines and authentically recreates the best of retro stuff. This time they are going to make a whole new console named Super Nt priced at $190 (quite expensive, no doubts!) and is set for launch on February, 2018.
The team has worked for 18 months to make every SNES game work flawlessly on a contemporary television. Be it the visuals, the aspect ratio or the sounds, they are recreated making use of software and hardware tweaks. The console is made using high quality plastic and Analogue has partnered with 8bitdo who will recreate classic Super Nintendo controllers into Wifi controllers to lean back at the couch and enjoy the titles.
Super Nt is not the first as Analogue has already delivered the amazing NT Mini and they promise that any SNES game, be it any region or type will work flawlessly on the new $190 console.
