Analogue is Making a $5000 24k Gold NES

Console collectors and Limited Ed. lovers assemble, for hardware manufacturer Analogue has revealed its new NES. And it’s plated with 24-karat gold.

The first two Zelda games came into the world on a gold cartridge 30 years ago, and in celebration, The Analogue Nt 24 Gold comes with an original copy of the golden Legend of Zelda (GameSpot).

Beneath its sparkling golden plate, the NES itself is made from aluminium, and includes original NES hardware. Supporting both NES and Famicom games, the console outputs through HDMI. The baseplate is also fully transparent, allowing you to see the circuit board.

NES Gold Circuit

As detailed on the Analogue site, here’s what’s included with the 2K Gold:

  • 24k Gold plated Analogue Nt
  • Premium Limited Edition Box
  • The Legend of Zelda (original gold colored cartridge)
  • RGB or HDMI upgrade
  • Full cable set or HDMI cable

The shimmering console will set you back $5000 (around £3518.55) – ten times the price of Analogue’s original NES Nt. The original can also be customised with different colours, including gold, for an extra fee on top of its $500 price tag.

Understandably, it’s also super-rare. Only ten are set to be produced, so if you’re not intimidated by its hefty price tag, it might be a good idea to reserve quickly. Once they’re gone, they’re well and truly gone.
