Retro Console Maker Analogue Teases Announcement For October 16
Many observers pounced on the usage of the squared exponent in the tweet, which they interpreted as a possible hint. 1 answer noted the Nintendo 64 utilized a superscript in its logo. Another theorized that the”two” could refer to the TurboDuo, which utilized a superscript two in marketing materials. The TurboDuo is a version of the NEC PC Engine–a niche console popular with collectors– which is better-known since the TurboGrafx in North America.
Collectible players of the world have praised the output of Analogue, a retro gaming company which specializes in crafting FPGA-based variations of classic consoles like the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. In an tweet, the business teased a major announcement for October 16, leading supporters to speculate about what they might unveil.
Given that Analogue tends to focus on the 2D aspect of gambling –and the fact that there doesn’t appear to exist a FPGA core for the N64, that’s the technology which powers most of Analogue’s consoles–the wise money is on some version of this PC Engine being announced on Friday. Sadly, Johnny Turbo could not be reached for comment.
The noted retro gaming firm Analogue revealed that it will issue some sort of statement later in October.
