Japanese gaming peripheral company Answer is set to release a Neon Genesis Evangelion fight stick soon. The company has partnered with esports brand EVANGELION e:PROJECT for the fight stick, which is styled after Evangelion Unit-01. It will be available to purchase at stores throughout Japan on June 1, 2023, for 32,780 yen (about $236). Pre-orders are available now on Answer’s website.

The fight stick, which is compatible with Windows 10/11 PCs as well as the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Switch, is colored black and purple. Its buttons and joystick are green, and the buttons have LEDs in them that can be turned on and off. Evangelion Unit-01 and the EVANGELION e:PROJECT logo are featured on the face plate, and it has a non-slip rubber mat on the bottom. It also has a 3.5mm headphone jack.

A button on the front of the Evangelion fight stick allows for easy access to the internals, where there are color-coded wires for easy button replacement. Replacement buttons, a button replacement guide, a wire for connecting the fight stick to PCs and consoles, and a Phillips-head screwdriver can also be found inside.

Answer and EVANGELION e:PROJECT’s Evangelion-themed fight stick releases on June 1, 2023. The Neon Genesis Evangelion anime is streaming now on Netflix. Evangelion: Death(true)2—a summary of the TV anime—and The End of Evangelion are also available on Netflix. The series’ soundtrack can be listened to on Spotify.
