Raspberry Pi enthusiast and gamer Max Mustermann has released a second version of his games console: the GamePi 2. The new handheld console is now equipped with dual joysticks together with a few tweaks to the speaker grill layout and includes a few additional buttons.

The latest generation of design now looks like a professional console you would purchase from a retailer and allows you to harness the power of your Raspberry Pi mini PC to enjoy your favourite retro games.

The 3d printed ABS case houses a Raspberry pi 3 board which allows  you to install the RetroPie operating system. Of course you can use whatever you want on the Pi – there are dozens of other solutions.

“I’ve printed my case with black ABS filament. I like printing with ABS because I love the post processing possibilities. You can sand, cut, paint and most important you can glue or fix it using acetone.

If you have a 3D printer with a smaller bed or no printer at all you can use a 3D printing service like 3D Hubs, Thingiverse, Pinshape, etc. to print the parts for you for some money. Or PM me – maybe I’m in the mood to print it for you.”
