Quick Facts

  • The KeyCade KKL UV arcade controller’s USB cable is type B to type A.
  • You can pay for a custom acrylic plate onto which your image of choice can be printed.
  • Available are different editions with PlayStation (PS) and universal (UV) compatibility.


The keys are very responsive. Having all keys means that your palms are facing down the entire time, which might make you feel more comfortable than when you are playing using a traditional arcade stick with a joystick. Just like with all-buttons controllers, you may have to compensate and adjust your technique when pulling off motions that involve simultaneous directions, such as when pressing back and neutral in games like Tekken.


The build is solid, and the panel won’t flex if you put a lot of pressure on it. There is nothing to complain about, and this controller gives you what you paid your hard earned money for.


Aesthetics are not the controller’s strongest suit. The stock artwork seems unimaginative and a bit dull. Text and other graphics add unnecessary clutter to what could have otherwise been clean-looking artwork. Luckily, you can add your own artwork. A caveat, however, is that to produce the custom acrylic plate using copyrighted material, an author’s permission along with a signed licensing agreement are needed. Otherwise, you would be held responsible.
