Super 78

Take classic Atari 2600, Atari 7800, and 8-bit computer games to a whole new level with the Super 78 - an arcade controller built around an authentic Sanwa™ JLF-TP-8YT ball-top joystick with an octagonal restrictor plate and two pair Suzo-Happ pushbuttons. 



Super 78 transforms gameplay on great Atari 7800 games like Asteroids, Ballblazer, Centipede, Choplifter, Commando, Dig Dug, Donkey Kong, Food Fight, Galaga, Joust, and more.   The octagonal restrictor plate is the perfect compromise between a 4-way and 8-way joystick, providing distinct landing points for your stick in all eight directions. The Suzo-Happ arcade pushbuttons deliver true left/right two-button control just like the original Atari 7800 "Pro Line" controllers, but with none of the pain.



Super 78 brings new playability and excitement to classic Atari 2600 and 8-Bit computer games.   The Super 78 is 100% compatible with the classic Atari CX-40 joystick familiar to owners of the Atari 2600, Atari Flashback, and many of the 8-bit era computers. When used with one of these systems, both buttons perform just like the single red fire button on the Atari 2600 joystick. But because our old-school concave arcade fire buttons are driven by super sensitive micro-switches, you can cancel your membership in the Numb Thumb Club!


Easy to Play.  Super 78s are built in an 8" x 14" sloped aluminum housing that is stable on the table or happy in your lap, with the joystick and classic arcade fire buttons positioned for a natural wrist position.  The ambidextrous button layout allows you to switch to the most comfortable control scheme that each game requires.  Under the hood, all harness connections are soldered and heat-shrink wrapped. The result is a controller to last a lifetime.  The molded DB-9 cord length is approximately 5'6" (1.6m).


Your wish is our command!   Customize your Super 78 with rainbow of colors for your joystick ball and pushbuttons, including the amazing Hard Candy Gemstone balls in red, blue, yellow, and green.  Refer to the image below to clarify which button is which, then use the pull-down menus to make your color selections.
