We love games! We love writing games, building games and, yes, even building game consoles. That's where the SparkFun micro:arcade kit V2.0 for the micro:bit comes in! The kit includes a controller:bit carrier board, which gives you access to a number of pins in the form of buttons laid out in a similar form factor to the classic original Nintendo controller. With the micro:arcade kit V2.0 you will be able to turn a classic controller into an arcade cabinet by connecting just a few buttons and switches.

Inside each micro:arcade kit you will find all the components required to build your micro:bit into a full-fledged game system; the only parts not included are two AAA batteries and the micro:bit itself. Simply add your own micro:bit to the provided controller:bit, assemble the kit, and you will be ready to start playing. The SparkFun micro:arcade kit V2.0 is a great way to build the arcade setup you've always wanted!

The kit does not require any soldering and is recommended for anyone curious about gaming or the micro:bit platform. When you are ready to control more than just games, the SparkFun controller:bit is equipped with the SparkFun Qwiic system to allow you to expand your curiosity to an ever-growing ecosystem of sensors & controllers!
