Analogue surprised everyone this morning by announcing the Super Nt, a FPGA clone of the Super Nintendo / Super Famicom platform on Twitter.

The Super Nt follows Analogue’s very successful NT Mini Nintendo / Famicom system. The FPGA-based Super Nt will offer 1080p HDMI out, compatibility with all SNES accessories and controllers, upgradable firmware via an SD card slot, and no input lag.
It is still to be confirmed, but likely Kevin Horton (aka kevtris) is behind the coding on this new console, having worked extensively with Analogue in the past.
The Super Nt comes in 4 colors: black, grey/purple (SNES style), grey/dark grey (Super Famicom style), and the most-90s-scheme-ever, transparent. It is not bundled with a wireless controller, but they are available in matching styles with a wireless receiver for $39.99.
It is available for preorder now for 189.99 US, with an anticipated ship date of February 2018.

Charlie’s first attempts at gaming did not go well. Repeated, failed run-ins with the first Goomba in Super Mario Brothers 1 plagued his maiden gaming voyage. Undaunted, he would go on to become an avid gamer of all platforms, with Nintendo always sitting atop the highest pedestal. Except for that Halo 3 incident in 2007. We don’t talk about it. It never happened.
Currently, Charlie enjoys playing games on as many platforms as he can get his hands on, with current favorites being the Switch, 3DS and Neo Geo. When he’s not playing games, Charlie is a live sound engineer and manager for his production company, Clear Harmonies, based in Washington, D.C.
Charlie enjoys talking about games nearly as much as playing them, and loves meeting new people, so hit him up!
Plays: All of them games. Seriously.
