Turn your Switch into an arcade cabinet with this $20 kit

The coolest thing about the Nintendo Switch is how customizable it is. Case in point: this super affordable kit that turns your console into a Nintendo Switch arcade cabinet.

For only $20, you can turn your Nintendo Switch screen and two Joy-Cons into the cabinet of your dreams. Sure, it’s far smaller than a real one, but think of the space you’ll save! And no, it’s not just pure cosmetics. The kit comes with eight sheets of easy-to-assemble cardboard pieces that are begging for your original flair. Slap them full of Capcom and Namco stickers. There are also two arcade sticks that slap onto the control sticks for the authentic button-mashing feel.

Take full advantage of all the arcade ports on the Switch. Make your next Street Fighter II bout as authentic as possible. Also, with Nintendo’s upcoming online service, there are tons of classic legacy games on the horizon. What better way to play these titles than on an old-fashioned cabinet?

Best of all, it costs less than half of an actual game. This Nintendo Switch arcade cabinet kit releases on November 27 and is available for pre-order on Amazon for $20.
