Welcome to the light heavyweight division of Mavercade cases! With metallic and acrylic top plates, this aluminum case is slim, light, durable, and easy to carry.


The button layout of the MFS-LHW can be stickless 24 mm or Shiokenstar, so you can optimize the layout for your fighting game performance. Add your own Sanwa parts to the mix, and you can enjoy responsive buttons that do not take long to activate, but they are also hard to press by accident.

The auxiliary button holes are placed in a tactical position to avoid accidental presses. The case’s ability to handle bottom padding means you should not worry about sliding during play.


Included with the MFS-LHW are:

  • Semi-gloss black aluminum frame
  • Bottom foam padding
  • Embedded mounts for Brook PCBs
  • USB-C passthrough for Adafruit
  • Six 18 mm aux button holes

Here are the recommended parts to complete your build:

  • Printed circuit board
  • Sanwa 24 or 30 mm SW64 CAU or CAU2 buttons with switches or…
  • Regular Sanwa or similar buttons with right-angle quick connectors or…
  • Regular straight quick connectors with pins you need to bend to fit
  • Six Sanwa 18 mm aux buttons with typical straight quick connectors
  • Connector cable for console/PC


The lack of blemishes MFS-LHW make it seem like it came from a state-of-the-art company, which is a compliment. Upon checkout, you can add an acrylic panel for custom artwork.

If you need custom digital art, we at The Arcade Stick can offer you a custom artwork service. Here is an example by our artist, Felipe Fernandez, for his client’s MFS-LHW:
