Blaze has revealed that Duke Nukem is coming to the Evercade, as part of six new collections.
That includes Duke Nukem 3D, so you’ll be able to employ the Mighty Boot, whether on the go with an Evercade retro handheld or sitting in front of your TV. And we’re not just talking about the PC games, either. Duke Nukem Advance is getting a look in, as are some of the PlayStation One titles.
But if Duke Nukem leaves you cold, there’s plenty of other things on the way. Blaze has also announced the Delphine Software Collection, which puts a big smile on our face. If you don’t remember Delphine, they made Another World, Flashback and several other gorgeous titles.
Another World’s sequel, Heart of the Alien, isn’t included. Still, we’ve got our fingers it’ll be part of Delphine Software Collection Volume 2.
So, if you’re an Evercade owner here are the cartridge collections that, announced at yesterday’s showcase, will be coming to your console.
- Duke Nukem Collection 1 – Duke Nukem 1 +2 Remastered, Duke Nukem 3D
- Duke Nukem Collection 2 – Duke Nukem: Time to Kill, Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes, Duke Nukem Advance
- Delphine Software Collection 1 – Operation Stealth, Future Wars, Flashback (console version), Another World

So when can you get your hands on these? The Delphine Software Collection 1 lands in August, likewise the Sydney Hunter and Piko Interactive collections. The Sunsoft Collection is set for October and both Duke Nukem collections are arriving in November.
You can also pre-order a fancy Duke Nukem-style Atomic Evercade, limited to 2000 units. It’s bundled with both Duke Nukem collections and while it doesn’t play Duke Nukem quotes on boot-em-up, it could be worth pre-ordering.
