    Blaze Announced Evercade EXP. Not all the details will be known before September. The Evercade EXP is a handheld that will be replacing the original Evercade.

    The Evercade EXP has 800 by 480 4.3-inch IPS screen, built-in WiFi, USB-C for charging, Tate mode aka vertical mode and 2 additional buttons. The 2 additional buttons are for playing games in vertical mode. . TV-out via Mini-HDMI is still included, but has been "redesigned to help cable stability and the rechargeable battery is rated at 3000mA and will offer around 4-5 hours of playtime. Under the hood is a 1.5Ghz processor and 4GB of built-in memory.

    Funstock is going to do a pre-order of a limited edition black Evercade EXP tomorrow that comes with exclusive hard carry case, art cards, poster, certificate of authenticity, key chain, USB to USB C cable, Irem Arcade 1, and Toaplan Arcade 1 for 179.99 pounds with the pre-order 12:00 p.m. eastern time.

    The regular version Evercade EXP version comes in the color white. Pre-orders start in September. It comes with Irem Arcade 1 and USB-C cable for $149.99.

    The Regular version and Limited edition of Evercade EXP comes out in Winter of 2022.

    The original model of Evercade is being discontinue and the final firmware update for the orginal Evercade handheld happens later this year. Feature game Collection even in 2023 will be able to be played on the handhelds, but you would be with any glitches.

    I understand the original Evercade being discontinued only because of the spec differences between the Evercade EXP and the original Evercade handheld along with features that the original Evercade didn't have.

    Those are some really great collections if you're a shmup fan.

    With the announcement of a more powerful successor and phasing out of the first model, doesn't that kinda shit on the people that bought the VS console?

    The new Evercade EXP handheld merely catches up to the specs of the Evercade VS. It's the owners of the original Evercade handheld that are being left behind. I recall when the more powerful Evercade VS was released, Evercade was stating that all new cartridges going forward would be compatible with both the older handheld and the newer Evercade console. I wondered how that was going to work out. Would not the owners of the Evercade VS want to take full advantage of it's improvements and not be held back by the older hardware? Well, I guess the answer to that question has finally been answered. By the way, the new Evercade EXP only outputs 720p where as the Evercade VS outputs 1080p.
    I think the original Evercade handheld was sold in a Founder's Edition Black, standard edition white and special edition purple editions. Those early adopters just got bitch slapped.

    The MSRP for the original Evecade handheld was $79.99. The MSRP for the Evercade VS was $99.99. The new Evercade EXP handheld MSRP is $149.99. The EXP has the same screen size as the original, but now uses a IPS screen which are more expensive and require more power. They are noted for having a worse response time, refresh rate and contrast ratio. But the EXP has built in Wi-Fi and the revamped button layout that supports Tate Mode.
    I wonder if the VS will receive an update to allow for a Tate Mode display. I also wonder if the discontinued Namco cartridges will work on the new EXP.
    Evercade currently emulates Arcade, Atari 2600, Atari 7800, Atari Lynx, GB, GBC, GBA, Intellivision, NES, SNES, Mega Drive/Genesis, Master System and PSX.

    You can now download Evercade vs firmware update 2.1.3.

    This update does the following: Adds full version of Roniu’s Tale for Mega Cat Studios Collection 2 cartridge, improves evercade patch system, fixes issue where SRAM saves would wipe upon using in-game menu Reset function, and Evercade VS FW Update detection is now improved.

    Bacon Ice Cream Production channel's Evercast had one of the employees on. C64 cartridges are confirmed for Evercade. Blaze has not announced the games on the 2 C64 game cartridges yet.

    What happened there is a person on that evercast received their evercade magazine. People from that magazine got C64 cartridges from Blaze according to an article. The employee on that podcast confirmed the C64 as a result. He said that there is going to be multiple announcements next week.
