The Evercade pocket console keeps getting more and more cartridges. Meet the 23rd one (wow!) - entitled Renovation Collection 1.
It includes exactly 12 games from Japanese publisher Telenet and their American division Renovation. All of these games haven't been released in Europe and are considered to be quite rare.
