The deluxe arcade controller kit from Monster Joysticks is designed to be an easy to assemble, durable and fun project for anyone from noobs to pro's.
The shell has been laser cut from high quality PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol-Modified) which results in an extremely durable, optically transparent and reliable casing. The joystick and buttons are all genuine Sanwa Denshi Co. arcade parts, these are designed to survive the most extreme usage and offer some of the highest precision available.
Assembly of the kit is easy and only requires a screwdriver, no soldering required. Full assembly instructions can be found here.
Included with the kit is the Monster Joysticks GPIO Interface for the Raspberry Pi. This is compatible with versions 4,3B+,3,2,B+,A+ of the Raspberry Pi and is compatible the fantastic SNESDEV drivers and is included in the hugely popular RetroPie software suite. This makes the software setup a complete doodle, you may even have all of this setup on your Raspberry Pi already so you can drop it into our Arcade Controller Kit and away you go.
Please Note: Raspberry Pi is not included.
This kit now uses our updated V2.0 adapter, it works in exactly the same way as our previous adapter but you can now use this kit as a USB joystick either with or without a Raspberry Pi installed.
You can now connect multiple kits to either a single kit with a Raspberry Pi installed or to a PC/Mac/Linux computer for multiplayer action
The quality of this awesome piece of work can be noticed since the first time you push the buttons and move the stick, as a not-so-fan of new consoles and games, this is perfect for me to play all the good classics. If you're a fan like me in that way, it's totally worth to buy the deluxe kit.
