The images SNK have released do not convey the actual size of the Neo Geo Arcade Stick Pro. It’s humongous.

The stick comes packaged with 20 games and can be connected directly to the TV or PC, plug-and-play style.

Huge arcade sticks aren’t uncommon, but this one seems especially jumbo.

It seems that SNK also has a protective cover for the Arcade Stick Pro. Since the stick is white, no doubt it would get real dirty. 

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

Question on fight sticks in general: if you’re in a pro match do you have to use one? And does it make it that much better? I’ve been playing MK11 on my PS4 the last few weeks and I feel like the dualshock 4 is an almost perfect fit for that game. I also know that they have throw mapped to one button for convenience and all but it’s not like you can’t pull off the move using the face buttons. Is that a no no for competitive playing?
