There’s definitely a hint of “Famicom” about the Evercade’s looks – which is absolutely fine by us! It’s far from a rip-off however, with sleek looking buttons, two pleasingly symmetrical speakers and solid looking d-pad reminiscent of that on the SEGA Saturn controller.

2. …and some welcome modern functionality!

The HDMI port is the standout feature here, sitting discretely on the top of the console. Being able to play those retro classics on the TV screen as well as on-the-go is bound to win the Evercade some admirers. Elsewhere, there’s a simple USB port for charging which gives you a solid 4.5hrs of gameplay. Sound is handled by two stereo speakers or via the 3.5mm headphone jack. Two shoulders buttons also provide additional gameplay functionality.

3.  The system will play Officially Licensed Retro Cartridges from Leading Publishers & Platforms

Intriguingly – Evercade will run games from cartridges, each one packed with officially licensed retro games. Atari are already signed-up, with three more  to be announced shortly. It’s pleasing to see some of Atari’s best games such as Centipede, Missile Command and Tempest included with the Atari collection.

4. Choose Your Aspect Ratio

  • Why?

  • Desert Falcon. What a bastard of a game that was.

  • G-man

    who is the compoany making it, who runs te company, have the produced anything before, have any of the owners of the games said anything publicly about this product. it looks like a complete scam. there is ZERO information about this company anywhere i can find. their facebook has zero details about the company. why is anyone believing this for a single second? this ticks all the boxes of dodgy scam.

    all there is about this is a few articles on random websites like that that say the same information about what this is, with cgi renders. one article even quotes someone suposedly from the comapy and does say who, or what their job is. or anything. this looks like a paid for advertisement not an article. or is that what “feadured article” eans, an advert you were just paid to copy paste onto your website?
