Our great value Raspberry Pi 4 Retro Gaming Kit is the best way to create your very own retro gaming console and includes everything you need (minus games - see below).
With everything in one box, you can be up and running in a matter of minutes. Just connect a screen, plug in the controllers, load your own game files (ROMs) and start shooting down 8-bit aliens with your friends!
Important notes (to avoid disappointment!)
We do not provide game files (ROMs) as we're not legally permitted to do this. You need to legally source your own games.
This is a project - not an off-the-shelf console! You'll need to set it up, tweak settings and install files etc. It's a great way to learn about the Raspberry Pi and Linux but that kind of geeky-fun isn't for everyone!
Lakka will not run on 8GB Pis (yet) - please use RetroPie for 8GB boards (or any board - RetroPie is great too!)
The incredible new Raspberry Pi 4 is the most powerful Raspberry Pi yet, which means even better retro gaming performance! It boasts amazing new features and improvements including:

In the box
Our kit includes the following items:
- Raspberry Pi 4 Model B (64bit Quad-Core, 2GB, 4GB or 8GB - select above)
The newest, fastest and most powerful Raspberry Pi yet, giving you the computing power to play more demanding retro games! You choose the RAM version you'd like - 2GB, 4GB or 8GB.
- 2x ThePiHut USB Gamepad / Controller ("SNES" Style)
-Two of our very own wired, USB game controllers in the classic "SNES" design. This is not an official Nintendo product, but a 3rd party USB type replica of the Super Nintendo/Famicom unit produced in the early 90's! We tested a dozen samples from an array of manufacturers before finding a model we were confident enough to put our name on.
- 32GB Class 10 SanDisk MicroSD
The included 32GB Class-10 SanDisk micro-SD card comes pre-installed with the ‘NOOBS’ operating system installer. Want to run RetroPie? Just wipe the card and install the RetroPie image.
- Aluminum Raspberry Pi 4 Case
Retro gaming can make your Raspberry Pi work hard - and that means more heat. To keep things nice and cool, we've included a premium precision-cut aluminium alloy case with this kit. It not only looks super smart, but it also naturally dissipates heat from all directions through the body material and upper/lower ventilation holes.
- Official Raspberry Pi 5.1V 3A Power Supply
We only include the official power supply with our kits to ensure a stable and reliable power source for your Raspberry Pi 4. UK, EU & US options are available - select plug style before adding to your cart.
- 2m Micro-HDMI to HDMI Cable
A high-quality black micro-HDMI cable connects your Raspberry Pi to any HDMI screen or monitor. The cable is micro-HDMI to HDMI, so no adapters are required. The 2m length ensures plenty of flexibility for placement.
- USB Micro-SD Card Reader
A handy little USB micro-SD card reader, in case you want to add game ROM files manually via a PC. It's also handy if you ever need/want to reflash your SD card with a different operating system.
