Smash Box

The Hit Box Smash Box is Revolutionary

Easier on the hands.  Tighter on the dash dance.  EVO / Genesis legal.  The Hit Box Smash Box is the controller you have full control over, and we hope you enjoy our sandbox approach to precision control.

So much development has happened alongside our Alpha Backers since the KickStarter campaign in 2017.  The final build of the Smash Box is something far greater than we ever could have hoped, and it's all thanks to the hard work of the community that worked alongside us during development.  We have proudly implemented tons of features that were never mentioned in the original KickStarter campaign.  We're truly proud to present the Hit Box Smash Box, and we are ever grateful to our KickStarter backers for making this dream project a reality! - HB Dustin

    Game With Health in Mind

    Many players choose Smash Box to help reduce development of Repetitive Strain Injuries such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.  While Smash Box is not a medical device, it was designed to improve upon the ergonomics of the GameCube controller and bring about much needed healthy change to the Smash Community.

    Our design uses the most sensitive high-quality Sanwa arcade buttons with a layout that requires the least amount of wrist and finger motion.  Smash Box gives you the highest level of gameplay without sacrificing your hand health.
