Technos comes to the Evercade handheld with an 8-game cartridge full of retro games

Technos Collection 1 for Evercade
It's exciting to hear about more developers coming to the Evercade handheld!
The Evercade is an upcoming retro gaming handheld console that utilizes proprietary cartridges for it's gaming content. The interesting facet, besides being a cart-based retro gaming console in 2019, are the multiple games on each cart. Arranged by developer, the Evercade has Namco, Atari and Data East among others. Technos has just signed on with an 8-game offering.

Technos' first collection of games (on one cart) brings: Double Dragon, Double Dragon 2: The Revenge, Super Double Dragon, River City Ransom, Super Dodge Ball, Renegade, Super Spike V'ball and Crash 'N The Boys: Street Challenge.

I'm excited about this device. It's new. Retro focused. And soliciting companies to bring forth their best games on cartridges. It feels like a wonderful step backwards - in a really good way! I love the multi-game format and the idea of collecting carts for it. I really dig this idea.

They are located in the UK and will be selling through Amazon among other retailers and claim it will be available globally. They are selling the handheld for $80 with one cart and $100 with 3 carts. Individual game cartridges are $20. Looking forward to it!
