Evercade Announces Arcade Collections For Handheld and Evercade VS Systems
Blaze Entertainment is delighted to announce a brand new arcade range of Evercade cartridges. The four new cartridges will feature arcade games exclusively, from classic hits to some rediscovered greats. These new cartridges follow the now traditional Evercade formula of providing something everyone loves and something new to discover.
All four cartridges will be available individually to purchase and are playable both on the Evercade Handheld and the Evercade VS. All cartridges are also going to support save states, just like the existing collections.
The new purple spine denotes the separation from the main console-focused collections of Evercade cartridges and the numbering system is reset for this new arcade line. But it still has the same great attention to detail with the cartridges coming with a bespoke manual and cover and provided in a bespoke plastic clamshell case, to fit in with the rest of the Evercade line. The price point of these cartridges is also in line with the existing Evercade price point of £14.99/$19.99.
All these collections have been curated by hand and feature the latest in commercial arcade emulation, and all games have been officially licensed from the license holders to provide Evercade gamers the most accurate and playable experience available.
These collections will be available for Pre-Order on May 28th and will be released alongside the Evercade VS on November 3rd 2021.
The four collections feature some of the greatest hits of the arcade era with titles such as Double Dragon 2 and 3, Bad Dudes Vs Dragon Ninja, Crystal Castles and many other great titles that became synonymous with arcade and home video gaming.
This has also meant that Evercade has been able to delve into the vaults to provide some great games to rediscover. Including a selection of games from the Gaelco back catalogue, a Spanish arcade developer who operated in Europe from 1985 to the early 2000s, and some great titles that you might not expect from the world-famous publishers of Technos, Data East, and Atari.
