Ultra-Thin Mini Hitbox Review

Ultra-thin Mini Hitbox Style Arcade Joystick Fight Stick Game Controller for PC, Switch, Pi, Android, PS3, and PS4 with Light
CompatibilityNS / / PS3 / PC / RPi / Android


Brought to you by ZUIDID and the Classic Gaming Accessories Store in hitbox and mixbox versions, this mini controller has LED, SOCD cleaning, and more. There are six auxiliary buttons.

Here are the input options at your disposal:

  • Nintendo Switch
  • PC (XInput)
  • PS3 (DInput)

You can also switch between D-pad, left analog stick, and right analog stick. Switch and PC connectivity seems flawless.

As for the SOCD options:

  • Up and down equal neutral while left and right equal neutral
  • Up and down equal up while left and right equal neutral
  • Last input priority

The buttons are unfortunately of a lackluster quality and will likely come off during play unless you glue them. Furthermore, you likely need a new set of buttons if you would like reliable performance out of this controller. The switches are okay, but you may prefer Kailh ones.


The printed circuit board (PCB) is the Pico Fighting Board that is powered by the Raspberry Pi Pico. The controller may come with:

  • Buttons with broken underparts
  • Flipped switch-holders
  • Improperly grounded display
  • Flimsy plug

Luckily, most if not all of the above are not permanent shortcomings, meaning you may be able to work around them yourself. For example, you can get new buttons, run a new wire to the display, and solder the plug back on.


The controller has a simplistic design. The LED definitely spruces up the look. If you would like to spice up the controller, you can insert your own custom art, which can cover the PCB. We at The Arcade Stick offer a custom artwork service.


Consider this controller if you like to tinker by changing the buttons, fixing any issues, and so on.

  • Beautiful LED
  • Customizable art
  • Button quality
