The makers of the Evercade, an upcoming handheld console that connects to your TV and plays collections of retro games which come on cartridges, have announced three new carts, each containing a fresh selection.

The biggest news is that there's a new publisher on the platform in the form of Namco. Namco Collection 1 will feature the following jewels from the company's back catalogue:


With some heavy hitters like Pac Man, Galaxian and Xevious, it's nice to see Namco join the roster of companies supporting the console. Also coming from previously announced publisher Interplay is the following selection of six games:

And, not to be outdone, Atari has another collection of retro titles including a few from the 7800:

Each cartridge will cost £14.99 / €17.99 / $19.99 and the console will include three of them in its premium bundle at launch. From the looks of things, the Evercade nails the retro aesthetic and the previously announced collections contain some classics too. It awaits to be seen how it will do when it launches later this year, but it's certainly piqued our interest.
