We are a bit late to the party, but on May 31st, Evercade announced six new cartridges/collections during a 19-minute showcase. All of them will be released between August and November of this year. The range of these collections should please every kind of gamer.
First of many
Starting in August, two cartridges will be released. One of them is Piko Interactive Arcade 1 (Arcade Cartridge #10), which features 9 games originally developed by the South Korean developer Unico. Some of these games include Dragon Master, Steel Fury, Magic Purple, and Ultimate Tennis.
The second cartridge is the Sydney Hunter Collection (Console Cartridge #30). It will contain 3 games from the Sydney Hunter franchise and will also include a 4th and brand new release called Jester, a dungeon crawler made by CollectorVision, a company started by the famous Jon Lester, also known as Gamester81.
One month later, in September, we will see the release of two more cartridges. The first one is Sunsoft Collection 1 (Console Cartridge #31), featuring 6 classics, including the fan favorite Mr. Gimmick. This game is based on the Nintendo Entertainment System version released in Japan and Scandinavia three decades ago.
The second cartridge to be released in September is a dedication to the Amiga system. It is the Delphine Software Collection 1 (Computer Cartridge #4), also known as the Delphine Software Cinematique. This collection is all about the games made by the infamous French developer. The cartridge consists of 4 games from their portfolio, with two of them being the all-time classics Another World and Flashback! These two games alone make this collection a must-have for anyone who owns an Evercade.
Third times a charm
In November, two more cartridges will be released, both of which are among the biggest releases ever for the Evercade. These collections are dedicated to the iconic 90s cult hero Duke Nukem, known for his balls of steel personality. Both collections will be available just in time for the holiday season.
Duke Nukem Collection 1 will include the all-time favorite Duke Nukem 3D, along with a ground-up remaster of Duke Nukem 1 & 2 exclusively for Evercade. The remastered versions feature widescreen capability and numerous surprises.
In the 2nd Collection, the last two PlayStation Duke Nukem games, Time to Kill and Land of the Babes, will be released alongside Duke Nukem Advance, the well-received Game Boy Advance version that was launched twenty years ago. These two collections offer great value at $19.99 USD/19.99 Euro each.
Some more to come…
As you may have noticed, October releases were skipped in our article. However, there will indeed be a Console Cartridge #32 released that month. Unfortunately, no information is currently available regarding the content of the cartridge. More details will be unveiled in July during the Evercade Showcase Vol. 2.
Rest assured, we will cover each and every one of these cartridges as they are released. Additionally, we are excited to announce that two new cartridges have just been released: Team 17 Amiga Collection 1 (Computer Cartridge #3) and the first Collection 3 on the Evercade, Piko Interactive Collection 3 (Console Cartridge #29). Reviews for both will be available shortly on Retrolike!
