Evercade’s new handheld console is coming this winter

A new Evercade handheld console will be released this winter: the Evercade EXP.

Building on the previous handheld, the sleek white Evercade EXP features a faster processor on par with its home console equivalent, the Evercade VS, as well as a higher-resolution screen, built-in Wi-Fi, and a new pair of triggers.

In addition, Tate Mode allows gamers to rotate the handheld for vertical play – the screen was designed for this and the console includes additional buttons to allow for changing the orientation.

Blaze Entertainment’s Evercade consoles are designed to play retro arcade games on cartridges. All current cartridges will be compatible with the new handheld.

The Evercade EXP comes with the IREM Arcade 1 six-game collection in the box, which includes R-Type, In The Hunt, Moon Patrol, 10 Yard Fight and more.

The Toaplan Arcade 1 Collection will also be released alongside the console, with a focus on games compatible with Tate Mode.

The console will be available this winter for £129.99, $149.99 or €149.99 with pre-orders open from September.

Digital Foundry was a fan of the earlier retro handheld Evercade. However, this is being discontinued and future cartridges are guaranteed to only run on original Evercade handhelds with firmware 2.x or higher.
