Bring the power of an arcade to your home with the Super Retro-Cade plug and play console by Retro-Bit. Packed with over 90 popular retro games from Capcom®, Data East, Technos, and Irem, this stylish console re-introduces such gems as Mega Man 2, BurgerTime, Joe and Mac, Bad Dudes, Double Dragon, Strider, Super Dodge Ball, the Final Fight series and many more.

The two included gamepads have an angular, wing-like grip design and a SNES controller button layout. They’re white controllers with red A/B/X/Y buttons and a direction pad on the face, along with black Start/Select buttons and red L/R shoulder buttons on top. The 10-foot cords attached are a huge perk for a system like this. Most wired retro systems have a 2 to 5-foot cord. The one downfall, in my opinion, is the utilization of the D-pad for the game action. Most of the games in the arcade require a joystick type controller to move your character more easily. I found some games rather difficult to move the characters as well as getting a little cramp in the thumb when playing. The box mentions support for third-party controllers, so you could find a USB controller that has a joystick to make it easier if you like.
