Evercade has also confirmed that another cartridge featuring more gaming titles is soon on the way for those that want to travel back in time to play their favorite games (with another line up of five more in the works). Along with this tease, they also announced that they would soon introduce their game library to different consoles as well.
The handheld that features these games will also be able to connect to television sets via HDMI and is about the size of a Sony PSP. With the handheld, comes a USB charging port, a 3.5 minijack for headphones, and a battery life of an estimated 3-5 hours before running out completely. Atari is an entertainment company that focuses on bringing back iconic retro games to fans. Currently, the Arari Lynx Handheld is set to release on May 22nd, 2020. Because of complications with the COVID-19 pandemic however, the official blog post states that fans are likely to see this console around late May to early June.
Evercade is also in charge of handling many different franchises like Asteroids, Centipede, Pong, Roller Coaster Tycoon, and many more! Currently, there are ten game cartridges available, adding up to a total of 122 games for players to collect.
