Originally for rhythm games, the Gamo2 K28 can also double as a fighting game controller as intended by the manufacturer, so there is SOCD cleaning. There are 11 preset layouts and 8 custom layouts. The 35th and 36th layouts are designated for WASD and hitbox layout use.

Although the K28 may not be the favorite of the rhythm game community, you might be surprised about its efficacy in fighting games.


The Kailh MX switches have an excellent actuation distance, and you should be able to choose from black, red, or brown. The XDA keycaps provide ample feedback. Thanks to a steel-plate satellite shaft, the spacebar feels good. The reporting rate is under 1,000 Hz.

The detachable USB-C to A cable and 3.5 mm audio jack come out of the back, not obstructing play. Since the K28 is nice and weighty, it should stay stable on whichever surface it is on.


The K28 is made of 6063 aluminum alloy through a high precision CNC. The metallic texture is strong. If the unused keys are an obstacle for you, you can use the tool that comes with the K28 to take out any unneeded keys.


The deep space gray is aesthetic. The switches are available in different colors, although that is more dependent on your desired performance. The surface is oxidized and polished. The cherry on top is the colorful LED effects that streak down the screen with every press.


As a fighting game controller with keys, the K28 is one of the best options out there.
