The lengths some fans will go to enhance their gaming experience in one way or another is nothing short of amazing, enough to create testaments to the ingenuity of the human spirit. Take this dedicated Switch fan on Reddit, u/snk50, who has made a full on arcade cabinet to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Nintendo Switch, complete with working pedals and a gear shift.
In all honesty, the setup isn’t quite as complicated as it might appear at a glance. The arcade cabinet used was refurbished from a decommissioned unit, and the wheel and pedals were all made by HORI, so it was mostly a matter of hooking everything up and polishing the final product. The Switch enters via the coin slot hatch in the front so it can still be used for other purposes (thankfully), but all in all it’s a tremendous display of effort and geekiness. Have fun with your setup, chum, blinking LED lights and all.
