Fightsticks – Japanese to help your shopping

If you’re into building fightsticks you might find yourself looking at Japanese websites to source your parts.

You know, those buttons from that one rare brand that you just can’t find elsewhere. Or maybe you’re going to visit Japan and want to shop for some parts so need some language help. I’m hoping this list of key vocab terms will help you out!

If there is anything related to joysticks that you are wondering how to say or read in Japanese that is not listed here, just let me know in the comments.
