UPDATED PRODUCT – Pimoroni Picade Console Controller Kit for Raspberry Pi 4


Power-up your TV with a Pimoroni Picade Console Controller! It’s a compact, Raspberry Pi-powered retro games machine with authentic arcade controls that plugs right into your TV, monitor, or other HDMI display. It’s a stylish, retro, and fun arcade controller for your Raspberry Pi!

Picade Console is fight stick-style arcade console that riffs off the Pimoroni Picade with the same retro feel, same joystick and buttons, dedicated power button, and driven by the same powerful combo of the Raspberry Pi and Picade X HAT. It’s beautifully packaged, comes with stickers and a neon-infused A3 Picade Console poster, and full assembly instructions.

The Picade Console Controller comes in kit form for you to build at home. All parts, panels, and components are included – you just need to supply the Raspberry Pi, power supply, SD card and HDMI cable! You’ll need latest Raspberry Pi 4 as the extra processing power gives great performance in many emulators – any memory amount will work, even the 1G version.

Please note: Raspberry Pi 4, Power supply, SD card, and HDMI cable are not included. So be sure to also pick up:

This is the console controller version of the Pimoroni Picade. We also carry a desktop arcade cabinet version with a screen and just the Picade X HAT PCB on its own.

Total build time is around an hour or two. Assembly instructions can be found here. The only hand tools you’ll need are a few Phillips/flat-head screwdrivers for the Picade PCB screw terminals.

Kit includes:

  • Black, powder-coated panels (swish!)
  • Acrylic console with retro artwork
  • Push-fit arcade buttons
  • Joystick with black ball top
  • Speaker (3W, 4Ω, 2.5″ driver)
  • Easy access with removable back panel
  • Dedicated illuminated power button
  • Grippy rubber feet
  • Picade Console poster / assembly instructions
  • Picade stickers
  • Male USB C to Female USB C
  • Dimensions (assembled): 245x120x140mm

Picade X HAT features:

  • Easy DuPont connectors for buttons and joystick
  • Push-fit speaker terminals
  • I2S audio DAC with 3W amplifier (mono)
  • Power management, power switch pins, and power button
  • 4-way joystick inputs
  • 6 player buttons
  • 4 utility buttons
  • Metal standoffs to hold your Picade X HAT securely
