When it comes to single-board computers (SBCs), the Raspberry Pi stands tall as one of the most beloved choices on the market. It maintains its prominence, overshadowing numerous Raspberry Pi alternatives, thanks to its exceptional software and hardware support. In the realm of Raspberry Pi cases, the options are plentiful, but one standout favorite has been the NESPi enclosure from RetroFlag.

As the name implies, it transforms your Raspberry Pi into a DIY NES Classic Mini, replicating the iconic NES shell. Now, RetroFlag is expanding its offerings with two Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) cases under the SuperPi banner!

Introducing RetroFlag’s Raspberry Pi SNES Cases
My first encounter with RetroFlag’s NESPi case left a lasting impression. This Raspberry Pi case, fashioned after the NES, not only exuded retro charm but also featured fully functional power and reset buttons on the front. Its design, reminiscent of the classic NES, cleverly housed an ethernet port and two USB ports.
This sleek and functional Raspberry Pi case allowed me to craft my very own retro arcade system, complete with RetroPie, Recalbox, or Lakka emulation software. As reported by NeoZone, RetroFlag is now stepping up its game by introducing two deluxe editions of the SuperPi case, each emulating the iconic Super Nintendo console.

These SuperPi cases mirror the nostalgic top-loader design, providing a dedicated slot for microSD card storage in the cartridge area—a feature I particularly appreciate, having experienced the convenience it offers with the NESPi. Like its NES counterpart, both SuperPi cases include fully operational power and reset buttons, enhancing their appeal as premium Raspberry Pi enclosures. As an added bonus, RetroFlag is bundling USB controllers that perfectly match the European/Japanese and US versions of the SNES console.

While the Raspberry Pi case market is flooded with options, RetroFlag’s SuperPi cases undoubtedly rank as premium choices. However, for those seeking alternatives, Kintaro’s Super Kuma 9000 SNES Pi case is another noteworthy contender. It boasts an aluminum heatsink and functional power and reset buttons, making it a strong competitor in the world of Raspberry Pi enclosures. Whether you opt for RetroFlag’s SuperPi cases or Kintaro’s Super Kuma 9000, you’re in for a treat when it comes to Raspberry Pi RetroPie, Recalbox, Lakka, or home theater PC (HTPC) setups. These cases offer both style and substance, elevating your Raspberry Pi experience to new heights.
