Retro enthusiasts, hold onto your hats because we've got the best retro gaming case ever made for Raspberry Pi! Say hello to the NESPi by Retroflag. The NESPi is a case for the Raspberry Pi and is the ultimate gaming companion for the current Pi 3. It's is the perfect gift for any vintage gaming enthusiast thanks to the USB, Ethernet and power ports, along with POWER and RESET hardware switches. 

It has been meticulously designed to invoke the nostalgic joy of retro gaming systems, but with all the modern features you'd expect. Plug in your wired USB controllers using the two exposed USB ports, and add another two, as well as Ethernet, via the hinged port cover on the top. Simply mount your Raspberry Pi board (Model B or B+, not included) inside, connect up the internal cables, and you've got a retro gaming station that looks the part.

To create a RetroPie setup, at a minimum, you'll need a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, a Power Supply, a controller, and a RetroPie micro SD card. If you're looking for a kit that bundles the NESPi with everything you need, then check out our Ultimate Retro Game Console Kit.

Connectivity and Cooling

Connecting your Pi up inside the case is easy. Just plug the Ethernet, USB and GPIO pins in, and you're ready to go. There's also room to mount a 30mm fan inside for additional cooling plus plenty of room for mounting a heatsink. If you'd like to learn more about cooling your Pi and whether you need a heatsink or a fan, take a look at our tutorial for Cooling your Raspberry Pi.

  • Retro Hand held Pi Zero
  • I bought a Pi zero w from Core Electronics for a friend, also bought the official case too but thought I'd fit the Pi into something he can show off! I used an old hand held game case I had laying around, I had to remove the original circuit board and plan where to place the Pi board....

  • This is an awesome project that takes about 6 hours to complete. Hours upon hours of endless fun thereafter! Ideally, some prior soldering experience is advantageous but if you take your time and practice before you start it's beginner friendly! The battery will give just over 3 hours on a single charge and can be recharged via the handy micro USB port. System updates, ROM transfers etc all possible with the Pi Zero W' built in...
  • RetroPie in a Cartridge
  • For $50 and some dedication a retro gaming console can be yours and with HDMI you can play it with any modern TV or monitor. Instead of using bulky and space taking cartridges and discs it's all on the console. For this build, we're going to use Retropie, an awesome software package that handles all your emulation needs with inbuilt Bluetooth and wireless needs. Any Pi can run RetroPie, but I recommend using the Raspberry Pi Ze...
  • Mass SD card Image Writer
  • We've built a mass SD card writer using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, some USB hubs and SD card readers. This beast has enough ports to write 49 SD cards at once! At Core Electronics, sometimes logistics hang-ups mean that suppliers cannot meet our demand for pre-flashed SD cards. During these periods we have to pick up the slack by manually imaging blank SD cards we source ourselves. Of course, this is a super-tedious process, and ...
  • Mini NES Style Game Console with Raspberry Pi
  • My son really wanted one of the mini NES when they were released, however he missed out. I already knew that you could use a raspberry pi as an arcade emulator, so I thought why not build him one.

    If you are looking for a case for your RetroPi setup then you cannot go past this little piece of Nintendo nostalgia. Looks great and all the pieces fit perfectly within the case. Bonus of the restart and on/off switch, just a note if an emulation locks up the Pi, I have found the safe shutdown script will not activate. (Posted on 7/08/2018)

    Super Case, great build, however not including a fan with it even though there is an insert on the top cover for one is cheap. Seriously! Taking nothing away from the case, its great, no issues with an ill fitting the pie.. (Posted on 29/06/2018)

    Looks great and works well. Unfortunately the first one had a loose USB but it was replaced straight away. Thanks for the great service the replacement is working perfectly (Posted on 28/06/2018)
