They finally did it!

The future of retro gaming is about to take a massive leap forward with the newly announced Analogue 3D, a modern reimagining of the classic Nintendo 64. Forget what you know about emulation; Analogue 3D is engineered to deliver a faithful gaming experience in the most authentic manner possible. Slated for release in 2024, this console offers a plethora of features that promise to make your nostalgia trip as genuine and seamless as ever.


64 Bits of Pleasure

When it comes to capturing the essence of the N64, Analogue 3D offers "64 bits of pleasure." The console aims to recreate the N64 experience, down to the tiniest details, all while maintaining 100% compatibility across every region, including the USA, EU, and JP. According to Analogue, whether you're a speedrunner or a casual gamer looking to relive your childhood, this device has something for everyone.


No Emulation. Pure FPGA?

One of the most significant aspects of Analogue 3D is its complete reliance on FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) technology, foregoing any software emulation. FPGAs operate on a transistor level, allowing for an unparalleled degree of authenticity. The result? A hardware solution that replicates the original system's capabilities without infringing on any copyrights or trademarks.


Connectivity and Controller Options

With wireless Bluetooth and 2.4g options, the Analogue 3D offers the freedom of cable-free gaming. However, if you're a purist, you'll appreciate the inclusion of 4 original-style controller ports. With these, you can plug in your vintage N64 controllers and get that tactile feedback you've been yearning for.


Crystal-Clear 4K and Original Display Modes

Long gone are the days of fuzzy CRT screens. The Analogue 3D supports 4K resolution, so you can finally experience your favorite N64 classics in ultra-high definition. But if you do miss the charm of playing on older displays, the console provides reference quality recreations of specific model CRTs and PVMs, effectively striking a balance between modern-day clarity and retro aesthetics.


The Analogue OS

Running on its unique Analogue OS, the system ensures smooth and effortless gameplay, free from the bugs and inconsistencies you might find in emulated versions.


Legal and Ethical Considerations

It's worth noting a few key points:

  1. Analogue 3D does not support openFPGA.

  2. It plays legacy game cartridges via a dedicated cartridge slot, not copyrighted ROM files.

  3. No copyrights or trademarks are infringed upon, making the console a fully ethical choice for retro gaming enthusiasts.

It's Real.

With its 4K resolution, FPGA engineering, and 100% regional compatibility, the Analogue 3D sets a new standard for retro gaming. It brings the N64 era roaring back to life, marrying the old and the new in a groundbreaking product that is sure to resonate with gamers worldwide.

So, if you're keen on experiencing a piece of gaming history in a whole new light, keep your eyes peeled for the Analogue 3D, and don't forget to hit that "Notify me when available" button... But just a word to the wise, like most of these Analogue products, they are pricey and sell out FAST!
