In about three months, Nintendo will be unleashing the NES Classic, a smaller, and more limited, throwback to a console fan favorite. Naturally, NES “remakers” Analogue is following suit. But unlike Nintendo’s official mini, the Analogue Nt mini won’t be as limited, offering all the amenities of modern technology while still promising compatibility with the cartridges and accessories of old.
