Analogue Super Nt Has Already Sold Out

The custom hardware that plays Super NES and Super Famicom game cartridges went back on sale on Friday and sold out quickly.


Update: The Analogue Super Nt has already sold out. The console was difficult to purchase right away, with the website failing to allow for checkout, but it did eventually work if customers were persistent.

Original story follows...

Analogue's Super Nt, a custom piece of hardware built to play classic Super NES and Super Famicom cartridges, will go on sale again soon. The company has announced it will open orders today, April 9, at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET.

The Super Nt comes in three colors: Classic, modeled after the Super NES; SF, modeled after the Super Famicom; and black. A fourth option with transparent casing has been discontinued. Each version includes the system and controller with all the cables and power supply, along with digital copies of Super Turrican - Director's Cut and Super Turrican 2.

As Analogue notes, the Super Nt isn't a plug-and-play console pre-loaded with games like Nintendo's own Super NES Classic. Instead, it's a full-fledged console like the original Super NES, able to play the library of Super NES cartridge games. If you still have those carts as part of your collection or are looking to start, this is one way to play them. Check out our Super Nt review for more details.

We expect the Super Nt stock to sell out quickly, though, as that often happens with Analogue's retro consoles. The tweet announcing the sale mentioned that there's a two-per-customer limit. Analogue also announced that the last stock of its Nt Mini Noir, the high-end $500 version of NES hardware, will go on sale at the same time, and those will be limited to one per customer.

Another retro device from the company, the Analogue Pocket which plays Game Boy games, was recently delayed to October due to widespread component shortages that are impacting several industries. The shortage of semiconductors has been called a "crisis" as it impacts industries from car manufacturers to phone producers, and the Biden administration is looking into solutions.
