Krikzz Releases More Powerful Nintendo 64 Flash Cartridge: Everdrive V3

Everdrive-64-V3-ReleasedHopefully by now the retro gaming community will mostly be equipped with Krikzz’s range of Everdrive flash cartridges. These stunning devices which allow you to load any game cartridge into memory via an SD card have become integral parts of our gaming lives - so much so we’ll always welcome a boost of power to the likes of the Nintendo 64 Everdrive 64.

Although the Everdrive 64 has already seen one hardware revision, it would appear that Krikzz was anything but done with Nintendo’s console. With technology improving and components getting cheaper, the newly arriving Everdrive 64 version 3 is set to bring the definitive solution to getting your 64-bit action on.

Priced up at $167 - a fairly large hike from the previous version’s $99 price point - those who already own an older Everdrive may be wondering what this additional investment brings. According to Krikzz himself, the Everdrive 64 V3 now offers near perfect compatibility with every game ever released. This fantastic addition is also bolstered with the inclusion of a 256Kb battery-backed SRAM, a Real Time Clock chip for titles such as Dōbutsu no Mori (Animal Crossing / Forest 64), along with the removed need to reset the console to write save games to memory.

While the new features may not appeal to everyone - especially when there’s a cheaper alternative on offer currently - it’s fantastic seeing such dedicated individuals creating and updating modern solutions to retro gaming.

The Everdrive 64 is now available at RetroGate for $167.

Good to see improvements being made. Should note that once you add a shell and region CIC chip the price point is $201. (PAL chips and shell being $2 more than NTSC)
