Analogue, makers of fine custom Nintendo (and now Sega) consoles, just released a new SNES machine as a collaboration with electronic label Ghostly. It’s gorgeous
The Ghostly x Analogue Super Nt is a console that can play SNES and Super Famicom games (like, the actual cartridges), run them in 1080p and output digital audio. So far these are all things a regular Super Nt can do, so the difference here comes in two parts.
First is that this carries Ghostly branding, and is a very nice shade of white (the best console colour if wood grain is unavailable). More relevant to the collaboration is the range of custom boot-up “sonics” it features, made by Ghostly artists including Christopher Willits, Gold Panda, Mary Lattimore, Shigeto, Tadd Mullinix, Ouri, and Telefon Tel Aviv.
That’s cool as hell, and I’m very upset I was asleep while this sold out.
If you’re unfamilar with Ghostly artists, the label – also home to folks like Com Truise, Helios and Tycho – provided the soundtrack for PS4 acid trip worm simulator Hohokum.
