New hardware, new lower price! 

We’re delighted to announce a refresh of the Evercade line of retro gaming consoles that not only provides a simpler and more accessible way to get into Evercade and its physical cartridge ecosystem but also brings the price of the products down to under £100/$100.

The Evercade -R range will see both the Evercade console staples (The Evercade VS and Evercade EXP) get a new look, a simplified package, and one bundled cartridge to be announced later this month.

Both consoles will be available to pre-order on April 30th, 2024 and release in July 2024!

Evercade EXP-R

The Evercade EXP-R is the best way to play Evercade cartridge on the go with the focus now purely on the handheld gaming experience. The console comes in charcoal grey with turquoise accents on the Menu, Start, and Select buttons, as well as the power button. A new textured grip on the rear of the console provides extra comfort during longer play sessions.

The Evercade EXP-R will come with a USB-C charging cable and also one Evercade cartridge collection bundled, using our new Giga Cart format, to be announced shortly. Prices for the Evercade EXP-R are now much lower at £99.99, $99.99 and €119.99.

There are some key differences between the Evercade EXP-R and the Evercade EXP, including no TV or HDMI output and it is now focusing purely on the handheld gaming experience. There are also no built-in games included like the Evercade EXP. You can read more about the differences on our blog.
