The $499 aluminum NES is pretty on the inside too

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Analogue Interactive's aluminum body NES, the Analogue Nt, is expected to ship next month, almost a year after it was first announced. And while it's beautiful on the outside, it also has a handsome interior, as Analogue showcased today in photos of the collector-grade system's motherboard.

"We designed and manufactured the Analogue Nt's motherboard with an extraordinary focus on detail," Analogue Interactive said in an email. "It is designed and constructed like a piece of art using custom materials, rarely seen in PCB manufacturing."

The company says it's manufacturing the board with a "custom black PCB with exposed and raised copper traces, finished with a transparent solder mask."

The Analogue Nt will play NES and Famicom games without the use of emulation. The company promises "videophile and audiophile quality" for the console, which starts at $499 and is currently available for pre-order.
