If the NES game console was turned into an AM/FM radio, it would probably look like this fan-designed Nintendo Radio. Not only are there buttons modeled after the ones found on the original NES controller, but a D-pad as well, but unfortunately, the screen does not double as a functional panel to play games on.
The Nintendo Radio was modeled afther the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) released in the North American markets on October 18, 1985 and not the Famicom that was released earlier in Japan in 1983. For those wondering why the NES looked radically different from any other game console at the time, it’s Nintendo wanted to stand out, and so they disguises the cartridge slot design as a front-loading zero insertion force (ZIF) socket. In other words, it resembles the front-loading mechanism found on a VCR.
