Pre-orders are now open for the next two Evercade games, The Oliver Twins Collection and the Xeno Crisis & Tanglewood cart. They aren't shipping till October but I ordered them just in case there's a large demand.


My Funstock order finally came in this week too!

Glad to see your Funstock order arrived!  I also preordered those two carts. Now waiting to see when the Lynx carts become available.  :)

Here is a pretty thorough review of the Evercade...

I still never did the first update but I might do this one. Looks easy enough.

I wonder if they will put new firmware updates on future game cartridges? They did that with the Neo Geo X so technically it must be possible.

From the Evarcade page:

Atari Lynx 1 and 2 Evercade Cartridges – Pre-Order Date Confirmed

Pre-orders for 2 new Evercade cartridges will open from midnight (local time) on the 30th July 2020.  They will be available to order from the same retailers you have purchased Evercade cartridges in the past. Some may not have the listings live in time, but they will be available for launch.

Stock will not be limited in the market, but will be limited per retailer – so if you have a preferred retailer, we strongly recommend pre-ordering.

The cartridges will release on the 6th November 2020

Yep, I noticed.  I, of course, wasted no time.  :)

Well, now I'm pissed.  Amazon just cancelled my order for Xeno Crisis & Tanglewood and The Oliver Twins Collection carts.  I wonder where I can order these from?

I ran a few searches and found them there.  Now I have to wonder if my other preorders on Amazon may get cancelled.

That's too bad. Did they give you a reason why they cancelled them?

I ordered mine from here https://www.videogamesplus.ca/evercade-c-1136.html

They said they were not going to be able to get them.  I did try to order tom VideoGamesPlus but the cart kep adding two of the same game and never added the other!  I have no idea what the heck was going on, so I just ended up ordering from Funstock. 

I hope Amazon doesn't do the same thing for the Lynx collections!
