In a shock announcement, a new Evercade console has been announced. Exclusive to Funstock, the Evercade Purple Edition is a limited edition version of the original handheld model.
Just 1000 of the “galaxy purple” devices have been made, with a 20% off price running until December 1st, 2021. At the time of writing, over 50% of the Evercade Purple Edition consoles have been sold, which would suggest that no one will pay the full £99 price.
Fancy grabbing the Evercade Purple Edition for £79.99? You’ll get:
- Limited Edition purple Evercade console
- USB charging cable
- Certificate of authenticity card
- 3x big vinyl stickers
System specs for the Evercade Purple Edition match the original. It runs 8-bit and 16-bit retro games, stored on cartridges. Each cart comes with between 6 and 20 titles, along with dedicated storage for save game states.
The Evercade Purple Edition also has HDMI connectivity with up-scaled HD graphics, while the device display is 4.3″, the same size as a PSP. This can be switched between 4:3 and 16:9 ratios, letting you play “as you remember” or with a modern full-screen experience.
Finally, the Evercade Purple Edition has a 4-5 hour battery life.
Better still, the Evercade handheld can be used as an additional controller for the Evercade VS. This is a great way to grab a limited edition piece of kit, in stunning purple, and support the Evercade’s march to retro gaming supremacy.
