The Cornerstone of The Modern Arcade
The Standard Arcade Controller is your first step in arcade gameplay.
Polycade's unique approach to button layout has been broadly tested across classic games and modern titles alike, providing the best game play experience across the most games.
This controller uses an 8-way joystick - most classic and modern arcade games are best played using this type of joystick (left, right, up, down, and diagonals). Games like Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and so many more are best played with the Standard Arcade Controller.
Magnetic Button Key Included!
A joystick and buttons that feel amazing, paired with quality, high-function controller boards!
Polycade uses the same joysticks and buttons favored by most pro fighting game players - Sanwa. We go a step further to create the most precise gameplay with the best feel by customizing the joystick with an octagonal gate - making your HADOUKENS easy to execute.
To complete the build, we use our co-designed Brook Accessory controller boards. After 7 years building arcade machines, we realized the perfect arcade controller boards didn't exist - so we worked with Brook and built them together.
What does this mean? It means you won't have to configure the controls for nearly any game, modern or retro.
No Mode Switching
Most controller boards allow you to switch modes, which results in a broken arcade experience.
Fixed Player Positions
No other X-Input native controller in existence has a way to set player position.
Hack & Mod
The Standard Arcade Controller is easy to take apart, swap buttons, etc. You could also swap the controller board with another Brook product, depending on what systems you're aiming to play on (Xbox, Playstation, etc).
The Standard Arcade Controller is compatible with the Sente swappable panel system! Easily switch arcade controls for an authentic all-in-one arcade experience!
The Standard Arcade Controller is a "half panel", able to be mounted with another half panel or center-mounted with our cupholder inserts!
