I thought I had seen it all with Kung Fu Master and the recent 2019 Galaga port. Now we have Shadow of the Beast -- wow!

What a great homage to the Super Sprint arcade game! Have you considered adding support for the Atari 2600 Driving Controller? This controller is usable on any Commodore/Atari system (with a driver) and reproduces the steering input of the arcade game. Its hard to get a hold of an original controller since it was made for only one Atari 2600 game (Indy 500), but they are easy to construct.
The controller uses a rotary encoder and sends a signal on pins 1,2 (up/down) as it rotates: (1,0), (1,1), (0,1), (0,0). Tracking the order and frequency in which these signals show up gives you the direction and speed of rotation.
Happy to give more context on this as needed. I have a video on my channel that shows the construction of a driving controller and how it works too.
