Evercade EXP Retro Gaming Handheld Is Discounted At Amazon

The highly reviewed cartridge-based handheld is getting its first substantial price cut at Amazon, making it more enticing than usual.


The popular Evercade EXP is an enticing retro device thanks to wonderful design and expansive library of cartridges loaded with classic games. As the successor to the original Evercade, the EXP is an improvement in practically every way, and it even comes preloaded with 18 retro Capcom titles, including multiple Mega Man games, Street Fighter II, Breath of Fire, and more. Normally $150, the Evercade EXP is seeing its first substantial discount at Amazon, bringing the price down to just $127.50. It comes with free shipping and is eligible for Prime delivery as early as tomorrow.

This bundle comes with an IREM cart that includes R-Type, Moon Patrol, In the Hunt, Battle Chopper, Lightning Swords, and 10-Yard Fight. The IREM cart will get you started, but Blaze Entertainment continues to add to its library of carts, with lines focused on classic console and arcade games. As mentioned, the EXP also has a built-in library of Capcom games that are exclusive to the Evercade EXP--you can't get these on the original Evercade or Evercade VS home console. Here’s a look at all 18 titles that come with your Evercade EXP:

  • Mega Man (8-bit)
  • Mega Man 2 (8-bit)
  • Mega Man X (16-bit)
  • Breath of Fire (16-bit)
  • 1942
  • 1943
  • 1944: The Loop Master
  • Bionic Commando

Our Evercade EXP review found the device to be incredibly compelling for retro gamers thanks to its solid construction and a deep library of games.

“The Evercade EXP, an updated version of the original handheld, is the best Evercade yet,” wrote critic Steven Petite. “If you're interested in 8- and 16-bit console and arcade games, the Evercade EXP offers a fantastic way to play physical cartridge collections in a portable form factor.”

We're not sure how long this deal will last, so be sure to check it out while you can.
