24k Gold Analogue NT Covers The Retro Gaming Console In Shiny Precious Metal

We’re big fans of the Analogue NT’s combo of retro and modern tech, allowing old-school gamers to play their NES and Famicom cartridges in full HD visuals and stereo sound. It’s also a gorgeous device, bringing aesthetics that put even next-gen consoles to shame. The 24k Gold Analogue NT steps it up even more, decking the retro gaming console’s enclosure in the shiny glow of the yellow precious metal.

Released to commemorate The Legend of Zelda’s 30th anniversary, the limited-edition console still houses the same hardware that made the original console so great. Except this time, it’s designed to match the luster of your Gold Edition Apple Watch. Now, if you can only get matching gold-plated control pads, life will be complete.

The 24k Gold Analogue NT uses the same enclosure as the original.  This one, however, gets covered in pure 24k gold plating both inside and out, so the entire shell will look like it’s been blessed by the cursed hand of Midas.  Except, the baseplate that is. Instead of gold-coated, it uses a transparent baseplate that lets you take a peek at your console’s internals for whatever joy it may bring your way.  Inside, by the way, it comes with the same Ricoh 2A03 and Ricoh 2C02 chips used by the original NES consoles, so it delivers as authentic a gaming experience as you can ask for. Each one includes the outfit’s HDMI adapter, too, which automatically upscales the gaming visuals to full 1080p HD.

    I remember how much attention adults paid to the Legend Of Zelda gold cartridge when I was a kid. I can now envision lines of people outside of my house waiting for their chance to glimpse at my Gold Plated Nintendo. This think is beautiful. The original Nintendo is like meatloaf, it always reminds me of good memories from when I was a child. This would be a toy that I would definitely not only buy, but use daily. How can you not like this?

    For $5,000 I won’t be buying one anytime soon, but hopefully they’ll come out with a cheaper version. Maybe plated with diamond plate aluminum milled to perfection instead of the expensive gold plating.

    I’m not surprised they left the controls unaltered. An original Nintendo controller has a specific feel to it, and to change that would change your gaming abilities. Too bad there are only going to be 10 of these made. They are definitely very limited, so If you want one you need to preorder quick before some rich nerd preorders all 10 of them. It is a beautiful rendition of the original Nintendo. I wonder how people get jobs designing cool devices like this?
