    It's time to take your retro experiences on the Evercade even further, as the EverSD, a cartridge that allows for the loading of emulators and backups has been released for the system. The Evercade launched earlier this year, and is a handheld that uses new cartridges to play retro games, with support for Atari 2600, NES, Sega Genesis, and other platforms. The EverSD allows you to emulate those consoles without the need of multiple carts via the use of a micro SD, has the ability to use savestates, and even lets you use the Evercade as a development kit.

    According to the EverSD website, the device is now available to buy for €40.00. A video, linked above, shows the cart being used, emulating Game Boy and Super Nintendo homebrew titles. PlayStation 1 emulation is supported, as well as Nintendo 64, though the latter is noted for having "very slow" performance.

    Isn't this basically an android device with retroarch emulators? I think the companies that made profit from those open source emulators should contribute some of their profits to help the development of the said emulators

    A flash cart for a system using emulators? Why not just put flash carts on virtual console? :blink:

    This makes the Evercade so much more appealing.Let's be honest, they are never going to be able to get the hard hitting games for the systems they support, so seeing a device like this that gives the system those games is very interesting to say the least!

    I've never even heard of this system. I've never seen a PC Engine/Turbografx16/Express in person, or knew anybody who had one. Say what you will, but those were obscure systems. This one is too.

    Well, probably cause at the time, it just wasn't as good as sega or nintendo consoles. Most people can say about that system is that it had loads of space shooting games and the best games are Bonks adventure series and That one castlevania game... which also ended up on nintendo systems. The lack of representation of those games on nintendo virtual console is still just not attention grabbing. :ninja:

    I like the Idea but considering we have Switch/PSP/PS Vita/ and android devices idk how many people will actually get this. If this was 2004 this would be really cool!

    this is dumb. if you're going to rely on a retro handheld, just get a cheap bittboy or rg350 if you want performance or a vita.

    Including shipping, it costs 70 euros. just so you guys know.

    On the (bright?) side, shipping to north korea is the same price as shipping to the US

    Also, the emulator pack is just retroarch cores. You can probably compile your own for ARM linux.
