Ooh, interesting news! Tomb Raider Collection 1 was just confirmed as the first Giga Cart and the pack-in game for the newly-revised hardware.

Quoting: damarrinInteresting shortsightedness considering these are 20+ yo games.
Getting on for 40 for some of these Namco ones! That makes me feel old!

Blaze has announced another new cartridge today. This one is Thalamus Collection 1, which compiles several iconic Commodore 64 games by the once-famed publisher, including the two Creatures games, which were without a doubt their most famous titles.

Hahahaha!

They did a really good promotional photo for it, too;



I bloody love it - it really nails both the retro handheld feel of the Evercade line, and the presentation of the classic Tomb Raider games.

I’ll pass on the Tomb Raiders (probably), but I got some other carts instead. The Delphine one is excellent. Flashback still plays great, once you adjust to the archaic controls. I remember having Future Wars on my Atari ST and not playing much for some reason. It controls VERY poorly, but is otherwise good fun.

Full Void is breathtaking, though I got a flickering bug. I’m hoping the update I’m very slowly downloading right now will fix it.

They've just announced the Evercade Alpha, which is a new line of Evercade-compatible bartop arcade cabinets;





The two announced versions both include different libraries of built-in Capcom games, as well as having twin Evercade cartridge-slots; The Mega Man-themed one features Mega Man: The Power Battle, Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters, Carrier Air Wing, Final Fight, Knights of the Round, and Strider, and the Street Fighter-themed one features Street Fighter II' Champion Edition, Super Street Fighter II Turbo, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha - Warriors' Dreams, Street Fighter Alpha 2, and Street Fighter Alpha 3.

I was hoping that they would do something like this! My only quibble is that they went with bat-top sticks instead of ball-top. I had previously been considering picking up the (also Linux-based) Arcade1Up Pac-Man cabinet, but now these new Evercade devices are serious contenders that will take up a lot less space... Decisions, decisions!
