Today marks the 25th anniversary of Team17’s renowned and classic Worms franchise. Therefore, it is only fitting to unveil Evercade’s next cartridge featuring 3 classic titles from the series; Worms, Worms Armageddon, and Worms Blast known as the Evercade Worms collection.
This exciting partnership with Team17 delivers some of the most well-loved games from the Worms franchise to the Evercade. These games are 16-bit and 32-bit titles from the 1990s and offer pass and play, multiplayer action.
Upon its release in November 1995, Worms created its own strategy genre with an unapologetically fun art-style and selection of characters, all the while providing you with a complex yet enjoyable gameplay experience. This kickstarted a franchise, with over 20 titles, and went on to cultivate a special place in the hearts of gamers around the world. Blaze Entertainment are delighted to work with Team17 to bring a slice of that legacy to the Evercade platform.
The Evercade Worms collection will be released in May 2021 and pre-orders will open in the coming months.
“We are thrilled to be working with Team17 on an amazing new cartridge for the Evercade. Worms is a particular favourite game of mine, so I am especially excited to see it arrive on the system, we are sure that Evercade fans will be too.” – Andrew Byatt, Managing Director, Blaze Entertainment.
“Today marks an incredible milestone for Team17 and the Worms series, which continues to be loved by gamers of all ages around the globe. We’re really pleased to partner with Blaze Entertainment to bring three of our most popular installments of the Worms series to the Evercade platform.” – Harley Homewood, Business Development Director, Team17.
The Evercade Worms collection – a big ol’ beautiful can of worms
I remember being a child at the height of the success of the Worms franchise. The Holy Hand Grenade was one of my most sought after weapons in gaming, hands down. Seeing the return of this franchise in such a novel way is brilliant and is a great way to introduce the next generation of gamers to what influenced us as young gamers.
