Evercade has announced that release of its multiplayer Evercade VS console will be delayed, citing shipping issues.
While the Evercade VS and Evercade VS Founders Edition consoles have been boxed for shipping, they are not expected to hit their intended destinations on time. Worldwide shipping issues and port congestion (despite what you might have heard in the British press, this is not a local issue) have impacted the successful distribution of the Evercade VS, resulting in the inevitable delays.

With the Evercade VS delayed, new dates have been set for release. For European and UK Evercade VS buyers, the situation is:
Regarding the Founder edition, our partner Funstock.co.uk currently expects to receive all of the stock by the end of November 2021 and will start dispatching orders immediately after the stock is processed via their UK warehouse. If all goes as planned, Funstock aims to have dispatched all orders to all destinations worldwide, by the 8th of December 2021.
All Evercades in the UK and EU should have shipped by December 17th. US-based buyers, meanwhile, have worse news:
At this point, we are waiting for vessel confirmations and despite working with 4 different shipping agents, we are not expecting goods to ship for 2 or 3 weeks. This means we have an estimated USA/Canada release date of 14th of January 2022.
It’s not all doom and gloom with this update, however. Evercade has announced a new special edtion handheld, the details of which are strictly underwraps for now, which will be available without preorder.
