Aside from its much improved case, the costume can now switch games, which is done by inserting equally huge cartridge replicas into a slot… somewhere in the back of the costume. Seriously though Redditor Dacaris says the cosplayer told him that the whole thing is controlled by a Raspberry Pi. The cartridges “had slots cut in them so they would press different button combinations when they were inserted, and those told the raspberry pi which game to load.” Here’s a video of the costume shared by YouTuber MidgarZolom:
