Analogue Interactive’s high-end aluminum Famicom/NES ⊟
Analogue Interactive, the company behind the gorgeous wooden Neo Geo systems, is doing something I’ve never seen before: a luxury NES/Famicom. The Analogue Nt is being put forward as an NES for “audiophiles” and “videophiles,” the “highest quality way to experience the NES and Famicom.”
And no, I don’t know what that means! I do know that it has four controller ports and a case built out of a solid piece of aluminum, along with hardware custom engineered by Analogue.
We’ll find out more when the company releases details at the end of the month. Being neither an engineer nor an audio/video-phile, I can’t speak to the meaning of a higher-end output of NES games, but I do think this thing looks cool and will be worth following up on.

He’s extremely popular overseas and has been around since the Famicom days. I only learned about him from Captain Rainbow, though.

Quote from an alternate universe where Captain Rainbow was better-known than Punch-Out!! Okay, maybe it’s Japan and not an alternate universe, but it might as well be.

Some other forum reactions to Little Mac in the new Smash Bros., collected by Legends of Localization:

  • I dunno who this is. They should’ve used the guy from Kung Fu instead
  • The guy from Punch-Out? Is he really that memorable enough to be in Smash Bros?
  • Basically, if you wanna know who this is, you gotta buy Smash Bros.?

In their defense, it’s not like Japanese gamers intentionally ignored Punch-Out!! The game was originally only released as a prize in Japan! The Mike Tyson version came out later, but I guess the re-release didn’t catch on either.

I guess this is basically what I felt like when those Fire Emblem characters showed up in Melee. Image via Revias!

All right, you got me, Famicom earbuds ⊟
They have a built in mic… shaped like the Famicom’s player 2 controller. What an awesome detail! They’re 1944 yen from Amazon Japan, and come from Datel, who has been killing it with the retro accessories. Via Miki800.

Famicom/Game Boy pouches for 3DS XL ⊟

Datel has followed up its Retro Face Pouch and Game & Watch style 3DS cover with these two 3DS XL cases. Not really feeling the Game Boy style case, but that minimalist-ish Famicom is great!

Both ship in April from Play-Asia, for $22 each.

Well, these are dramatic! The movie is coming to Japanese theaters in February. It looks like there may be some sequences with a young Arino?

Here’s Windows XP for Famicom ⊟

Oh, excuse me, I meant Super Great Famicom Cartridge Game.. Window XP (via GN). I’m sure this has the full functionality of Microsoft’s PC operating system; after all, Windows XP is pretty old.

It has Winamp!

Mighty No. 9 Famicom cart ⊟
Whoaaa… I must have missed when the Famicom was added to the list of this project’s Kickstarter stretch goals — it’s not surprising when you consider that backers pledged to get Mighty No. 9 on every platform under the sun (including the only two that really matter, 3DS and PS Vita :oP ).
Wait, this isn’t real. It’s actually another lovely mock-up by Nightmare Bruce! You can see more pics and follow him on Tumblr here.

A perfect Famicom for our Year of Luigi 2013 ⊟

Blue case for his overalls, green controllers for his shirt, black eject button for his mustache, and brown bottom for his shoes. I love you, weegee Famicom. Big ups to Gamelabo for making this, and simplyAwful for linking it.

Quick update on #Week of Tiny — we stopped taking new entries as of yesterday, but we’re still sifting through all your responses! We’ll contact winners soon!

Summer Carnival ‘92: Recca

One of the oddest announcements this morning — super-rare Famicom shoot’em up Summer Carnival ‘92: Recca come to the North American 3DS Virtual Console soon! Released to the Famicom with a limited, Japan-only run, Recca has received much praise from shmup aficionados — HG101 called it “possibly the best shooter on the Famicom, and without question the fastest.”

Other 3DS Virtual Console announcements from today’s Nintendo Direct:

  • Donkey Kong (NES) releasing August 15
  • Tecmo Bowl (NES) releasing this fall
  • Wario World 3 (GBC) releasing soon
  • Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES) releasing soon
