Title: New Retro Handheld: Evercade
Post by: Shadowrunner on July 05, 2019, 20:47:36 PM
Yes it's another one of these! There's a ton of these handhelds being released with emulators on them, but this one is a bit different. This one actually has interchangeable cartridges from various publishers. Legal and no need for Roms.

Prices and currently announced games in the link above and it's supposed to be released later this year. Not sure if I'll get one yet but I'm definitely interested.

I got an email about this myself.  It does looks cool because it uses cartridges.

It looks cool. I actually have high hopes for this one if priced correctly.

Looks indeed good. 4.3" is too small for me though, I still have some JXD consoles lying around, and the bigger 7" s7300 is a really good handheld, absolutely love it.

Console pricing is 69.99€ plus one cartridge. Definitely gonna follow it, that's affordable.

New info today! Pre-orders start next Friday the 6th and they also announced a black version of the handheld that will be exclusive to Funstock in the UK. They will ship worldwide though if anyone outside the UK doesn't want the white model.

Actual release date isn't till 20th of March 2020.

Well I just pre-ordered one. ;D

There are no retailers in Canada so I was concerned about the shipping cost but it was really cheap so I went for it. I got the limited edition black one with the three game bundle. Now I just have to wait till March!

Me too, but I'm out, kinda like it, but I would never use it, screen is definitely too small for me.

I'm not a huge Double Dragon fan, but the rest of the games on this would be cool to have.

Nice set of games.  So, this is a different collection?

Yeah, all of the cartridges for this are multi game collections. Not bad for under $20 each.
