Just when the UK needed a reliable fightstick innovator the most, Blunderbuss Designs quit the industry and then (expectedly) resurfaced, this time as Cool Bear.
The two offerings in this line are Leviathan and Cthulhu, with the former being a joystick case (that has an extended Sega 2P layout) and the latter being an all-button one. They are a successor to the discontinued One-Zero line.
The machined case is made of a single slab of monolithic aluminum. The case is finished to a fine grain texture and then anodized to enhance durability. There might be minor blemishes on your case due to the nature of the process.
You can choose the color of your case as well as the clear acrylic cover to indicate whether you would like a Japanese or Korean joystick slot. You should order a Japanese cover if you are looking to install a low-collar Korean joystick.
Supported joysticks include Sanwa, Seimitsu, Hayabusa, IST Mall, and etokki. Supported buttons include Sanwa, Seimitsu, Crown, and Qanba Gravity.
What you get with your order:
- Acrylic cover
- Aluminum bottom panel
- Anti-slip mat
- USB-B panel mount
What you would need to get yourself:
- Japanese/Korean joystick
- 24 mm buttons (6)
- 30 mm buttons (8)
- Wire harness

- USB cable
The cable can be male to male USB-B to A or C.
