Every Analogue console uses restored genuine materials scavenged from damaged Famicom devices. The components are then attached to the original board and modified slightly with the latest video board so that can be interfacing with modern televisions. This amazing feet of engineering is then packaged in its aluminum shell ready for sale.

Through a box of old games I found in the attic, friends’ collections, and friends of friends’ collections, we managed to test a wide variety of games on our Analogue Nt Mini. Games we tried included Zelda, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Punch Out, Mega Man IV, Jaws, Contra and DuckTales, all of which worked if not as good, then better than they would on the classic systems. Playing the original Mario, from the original cartridge on my 54-inch HD TV was a surreal experience. The colours are rich and the gameplay is smooth. Plus, getting to blow into the cartridge before shoving it into the slot was very satisfying.

I have tried a number of emulators and aftermarket alternatives but few, if any compare to the perfectly adapted experience you get from the Analogue Nt Mini. At $450, it’s not cheap but if you have a whole load of old cartridges lying around and want something that will blend seamlessly into your modern gaming setup, then the Nt Mini is just what you are looking for.

The success of classic Nintendo products and third-party alternatives like the Nt mini has skyrocketed over the last year. Interest in these systems was highlighted during the 2016 festive season when sales of the NES classic outstripped all expectations. The legendary console company again showed an affinity to its retro titles porting a number of the classic Megaman games to mobile app formats, the success of which is sure to usher in a number of other classic titles for mobile gaming.

Nintendo seem to be perfectly positioning themselves to take advantage of the nostalgic experiences of the first adult population to grow up with video games. And when you consider that these individuals have disposable income to burn, the move is ensuring Nintendo opens up a profitable niche market that many console manufactures seem completely unaware of. A market that boutique firms like Analogue are only too happy to exploit.
