The Sanwa parts of the Martial 5in1 Arcade Fight Stick are responsive as expected. The joystick is usually eight-way, but you might receive a square-gated one. There are two sets of macro key settings as well as a DP/LS/RS toggle next to the home button. There are lots of space for comfort, including a slope at 35 degrees for the wrists.


This arcade stick is a clone of the Evangelion e:Project, Joytron Ultra Fighter Edition, Mad Catz TE2+, and PXN-X9. It is a heavy arcade stick. Plenty of space on the top panel probably caused the arcade stick to be designed bigger. As a result, it got heavier, but it should not be a big deal. In fact, most might see it as an upside, especially those who play on a desk.

The detachable USB cable is type C. Inside the arcade stick, which you can open with one button, you will find a screwdriver and two extra buttons. You can carry the arcade stick by attaching a strap.


The fiery artwork with the symbols complemented by LED backlit buttons make this arcade stick quite the looker, and there is a One Punch Man edition. The LED can be turned on and off by one of the auxiliary buttons.

If you would like to customize your Martial 1’s artwork, our artist, Carlos Rios, has made artwork with its template before and can do the same for your arcade stick:
