5. Nacon Daija

Daija Arcade Stick Xbox

The Nacon Daija was one of the community favorites in the previous console generation, and it is now back, this time with Xbox Series X compatibility & official licensing. The Nacon Daija was originally developed in collaboration with the female professional player from France, Kayane.
