After the relative success of the Analogue NT, and the Analogue NT Mini, the fine folks at Analogue are putting out the upcoming Super NT. This was inevitable, in a lot of ways. It's the logical progression of what they were already working on. But I'm still excited.
The Super NT is going to be an FPGA-based retro console that plays Super Nintendo and Super Famicom cartridges. It's going to boast most of the same feature-set as the Analogue NT Mini, with 1080p output video, and near-perfect audio processing. (always an issue with Super NES emulation)
Here's the real kicker, though. It's going to be priced at around $190 USD. This places it out of the price range of average fans who would be fine with a SNES Classic. But it also places it much, much cheaper than its predecessor, the Analogue NT Mini. (which was priced at $450 USD) So for collectors, this a much more affordable device.
Also, it is using the same FPGA and basic internals as the Analogue NT Mini. So the possibility of a custom firmware showing up for it is extremely high, as well as the possibility of that firmware containing all the cores that the NT Mini could take advantage of. All around, this is great news for people hoping for retro game support without significant compromises.
