Overview

Otherwise known as the boutique hitbox controller, the SquidBox features a fully modular design. It has a layered case with a clear acrylic top. Through hot swapping, you can choose your own switches from the wide catalog of Kailh Choc V1 switches. As for the printed circuit board (PCB), it is provided by Brook. Specifically, it is the PS3/PS4 Fighting Board. The SquidBox is handmade and assembled in Europe.

Here is a list of what you can buy:

  • The printed circuit board provides you a PCB without switches or the Brook board.
  • The case provides an acrylic top and bottom, 3D printed mid-layers, and screws.
  • The full acrylic case provides full acrylic for the four layers and screws.

If you opt for the assembled SquidBox instead, it provides:

  • PCB
  • Brook PS3/PS4 Fighting Board
  • Six tactile switches
  • Two sliders
  • 12 Kailh Choc (hot swap)
  • Keycaps
  • Acrylic top/bottom case
  • 3D printed mid-layers

As for the Kraken PCB, it is for those who like to tinker. It allows for the installation of the Brook Universal Fighting Board (UFB) along with the Brook UFB-UP5 for PS5 compatibility. De-soldering the Brook UFB would be required. The Neogeo Mini and Sega Genesis Mini are also compatible.
