The MPress Nano is a mini version of the critically acclaimed MPress. The Nano debuted at Evo 2023. It is part of the Hit Box licensing program.


The buttons have a relatively short travel distance and sound very much like a keyboard. They are slightly bigger than average. There was no noticeable input delay when testing this product.

The function buttons, which do not have the most intuitive layout, are:

  • LS
  • RS
  • Touchpad
  • Home
  • Select
  • Start

The Nano comes with anti-slip padding. Both table and lap play are viable with the Nano despite its compact form factor, which is impressive.


The quality aluminum case is impressively 6 mm thick with Cherry MX ultra-low profile switches that do not seem hot-swappable because they are soldered on. The actuation is 0.8 mm. Active key remapping is available.

The cable is USB-C. Note that the Nano has more screws than average if you would like to open it up. Even so, customizability is not the Nano’s strongest asset.


The Nano was clearly crafted with care. The case and main button colors can be chosen, but the color scheme of the six secondary buttons on the upper left might not be customizable.


The MPress Nano is the type of mini all-button controller you should customize carefully upon checkout.

  • Quality aluminum
  • Snappy switches
  • Anti-slip padding
  • Playable on a lap
  • Custom colors
  • Louder buttons
  • Aux button layout
  • More screws
  • Limited modding
