If the stick doesn't wear out like the originals, I'm sold.
Indeed... and thank fucking god they didn't invert the order of the face buttons like with the Neo Geo Mini ones. Another huge plus.

It all comes down to the quality of the clicky buttons now... it's probably not the greatest for fighting games but it's great for everything else on the system imo.

OK I hope they dump replacement switches into the market too, those look the exact same as the actual ones on the original pad. This means it will probably have reliability issues too at some point, though...

Original button layout? Check.

Proper switches for stick? Check.

Sooo…I can eventually use this to play the Neo Geo Pocket Color games on the nintendo switch with proper controls now?? :D

Just the L and R buttons look odd on that. Other than that, I will probably pass this. Tempting though!

Maybe this will lead into a wireless neo geo arcade stick!

I hear ya, though the previous neogeo cd pad rereleases on ps2 and ps3 did the same and they weren’t too bad or in the way during play. I still use my old ps2 neogeo cd pad that came with kof94 re-bout to play some of the older ps2 exclusive snk releases.

Though there was already a microswitched usb neogeo cd pad rerelease (the aforementioned version designed for use on the ps3), it’s the wireless/bluetooth support that has me enthusiastic for this newer release.

Oh neat.
I remember the PS2 pad but never knew about the PS3 version.
Those PS2 ones got expensive on ebay.
