Saving a Princess Is Priceless

In 1986, the first Legend of Zelda game was released for the Famicom Disk System. In the 30 years since, Nintendo has released a total of 18 Zelda games (not including spin-off games where Link makes a cameo, like in Super Smash Bros.), on numerous consoles, and the franchise has become one of the most popular fantasy franchises of all time.

Today, Analogue, the makers of a gaming console that allows nostalgic gamers to play their original NES and Famicom games in high resolution (1080p or 720p) and with hi-fi sound (each has a 48KHz 16 bit stereo), is celebrating The Legend of Zelda‘s 30th anniversary with a limited edition 24k gold-plated gaming system. Yes, the aluminum enclosure of each limited-edition Analogue Nt is plated in pure 24k gold.

Analogue Nt is only releasing 10 of these 24k gold consoles, and each one includes an original gold-colored Legend of Zelda cartridge. To get one, you’ll have to drop almost five grand. It’s a lot of money, especially when you can get a standard Analogue Nt for a tenth of that, but for those obsessed with saving Princess Zelda, and who want to pass on an incredibly fun and unique system to their kids, it may just be worth its weight in gold.
