Evercade EXP Crams 18 Capcom Games Into One Handheld

Evercade has just announced that its newest handheld console will come pre-loaded with 16 classic Capcom titles. It’s retro gaming on the go via a 4.3″ IPS screen. The Evercade EXP is WiFi enabled and has a battery that lasts between 4 to 5 hours. Not only will the handheld come with 16 games, but you can also take advantage of the Evercade’s expansive library of over 380 retro titles. This collection currently consists of 30+ cartridges from developers like Intellivision, Gaelco, Jaleco, Gremlin, Atari, and Data East, to name a few. So there’s no selection shortage if you’re a retro gaming fan.

The Evercade EXP will come with the following games pre-installed:

  • 1942 (Arcade version)
  • 1943 (Arcade version)
  • 1944 : The Loop Master (Arcade version)
  • Bionic Commando™ (Arcade version)
  • Captain Commando™ (Arcade version)
  • Commando™ (Arcade version)
  • Final Fight™ (Arcade version)
  • Forgotten Worlds™ (Arcade version)
  • Ghouls ‘n Ghosts™ (Arcade version)
  • Legendary Wings™ (Arcade version)
  • MERCS (Arcade version)
  • Street Fighter II’: Hyper Fighting (Arcade version)
  • Strider (Arcade version)
  • Vulgus™ (Arcade version)
  • Mega Man (8-bit)
  • Mega Man 2 (8-bit)
  • Mega Man X (16-bit)
  • Breath of Fire (16-bit)

Some of these games are vertical scrolling shooters, which usually means those titles are compressed on the screen. However, the EXP has something called “TATE mode.” This features “mode allows you to play classic vertical games the way they were meant to be played. Turn the Evercade EXP 90 degrees and play using the dedicated buttons. Perfect for arcade shooters like Toaplan’s Truxton, Capcom’s 1942, and classic games like Atari’s Centipede.

The Evercade is also capable of displaying these games on the big screen as well. The console has a mini HDMI port that allows you to play the Capcom titles on a TV at 720p. Then again, this should be expected for a device that will retail for $149.99 when it hits retailers on November 24th.

The Evercade EXP may be pricier than other options, but from what I’ve heard, the emulation of the games is pretty good. The bad thing is that the Evercade catalog has had better reception in the UK than in the US. I’ve not seen one of their products in a local retailer for over a year. Maybe this handheld will change that? What do you think? Let us know below.
