The Evercade is a brand new handheld retro gaming console launching on May 22nd. It features a screen that is 4.3″ in size. This is in fact the same size as the PSP’s screen. In addition, the console also supports output to a TV via HDMI, and they’ve just announced a new cartridge coming to its library later in the year. The Atari Lynx Collection 2 Evercade cartridge contains eight officially licensed retro games. This new cartridge will be coming sometime in the third quarter of 2020. Here are the eight games featured on the Atari Lynx Collection 2 Evercade cartridge:

  • California Games
  • Todd’s Adventures in Slimeworld
  • Electro Cop
  • Gates of Zendocon
  • Zarlor Mercenary
  • Blue Lightning
  • Chips Challenge
  • Checkered Flag

There is also a page for the first Atari Lynx Collection 1 Evercade cartridge on that site, which is also coming out in the third quarter of this year according to that page. That cartridge has 17 games on it. Here’s a look at the Evercade itself:

Currently the Evercade library has eleven other cartridges in it, which collectively contain 145 officially licensed retro games. According to the press release, another currently unannounced cartridge is also already in the works. 10 cartridges will be available at the console’s launch later this month, with 3 to 5 more planned to come out later this year. They’ve also announced that arcade games are coming to the Evercade.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
