Evercade is a New Cartridge-Playing Retro Handheld Gaming Device

There’s a new handheld retro console on the way.

The Evercade retro game console is a new handheld device that will have its own unique, officially licensed multi-game cartridges. The console will support 8 and 16-bit games and will have the ability to plug into a TV set via HDMI. The screen size is the same as Sony’s PSP console at 4.3”.

Retailing at £59.99/$79.99 with individual cartridges at £14.99/$19.99, the console looks as though it may be a great buy for retro game fans.

The Evercade has secured major licenses including Namco Museum (which includes Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Galaga, Galaxian and more), Interplay (Earthworm Jim 1 and 2, Clayfighter and Battle Chess), Data East (Burger Time, Karate Champ and Bad Dudes) and Atari (40 games including Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command and more).

So far, details are scarce – there’s no detail on a release date yet, nor do we know where you can buy one. But we expect to find out more soon. In the meantime, you can find more information as well as the full list of included games on the official Evercade website.
