Console maker Analogue, the company behind high-end retro hardware that plays classic NES, Super NES and Sega Genesis games, is releasing a special version of its Super Nt console as part of a collaboration with record label Ghostly International. The limited edition Super Nt will include exclusive start-up sounds from Ghostly artists, including Christopher Willits, Gold Panda and Shigeto.
The Ghostly x Analogue Super Nt will be limited to 1,000 units, and costs $249.99. Included in the package is the console itself, manufactured in all white, and a matching 8BitDo SN30 wireless controller and receiver. The system is shipping now.
The console also has its own boot-up sequence visuals designed by Phil Fish, the developer behind Fez. Fish created the original boot-up sequence — which featured music from electronic artist Squarepusher — for standard edition of the Super NT.
Seven Ghostly International artists composed new “start up sonics” for the limited edition Super Nt, each six to 10 seconds in length. You can hear the new boot up sounds from Christopher Willits, Gold Panda, Mary Lattimore, Ouri, Shigeto, Tadd Mullinix and Telefon Tel Aviv on the official Analog website.
The standard, stand-alone Super Nt costs $189.99 and an 8BitDo SN30 wireless controller and receiver costs $39.99, meaning the Ghostly International version will carry a $20 premium.
