New and improved NESPi Case+ Plus version with Safe Shutdown and Safe Reset function. It will be more safe for your SD card during shutdown and reset.We created this Pi case by applying the most iconic element in the retro game world as a homage to the most classic console ever made.

Behind the small, hinged door, there are two USB ports and one standard RJ-45 connector. We put the slot for your Micro SD card on the side to allow more space for you to operate more freely. It has improved HDMI and Audio ports to enhance the experience of using your HDMI and audio out-put cables. There's even room for a cooling fan.
