Microsoft Will Release an Xbox-Exclusive Mandalorian Controller
The Mandalorian season 2 finally hits Disney+ this week, and later this year, fans can bring the bounty hunter and The Child along for their video gaming adventures as well. Via Game Informer, Microsoft has shared plans to release a new Xbox controller inspired by the hit Star Wars series.
The controller is made to look like it was forged from the same beskar metal that covers Din Djarin’s suit. It also includes two insignias engraved on either side. On the right, we see the skull of the mythosaur, which serves as the symbol of all Mandalorians. Similarly, the left side features Djarin’s own mudhorn signet. The controller also comes packaged with a charging station that allows for “one-handed play while you charge.” Naturally, the charger is emblazoned with the Mando’s iconic helmet.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a piece of Mandalorian merchandise without a reference to The Child (a.k.a. Baby Yoda). That’s why the back of the controller includes an image of the pint-sized alien underneath the word “wanted,” which appears beside the Empire’s sigil. You can check out this image below.
Unfortunately, gamers might need to hunt some bounties of their own before buying the controller, because it retails for $160. As Game Informer notes, that makes it $20 more expensive than a similar bundle inspired by Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It’s also costlier than a standard Xbox controller ($60) and charger ($40) combined. Regardless, the new combo is compatible with the Xbox One and the upcoming Xbox Series X/S consoles.
Microsoft’s Mandalorian-themed controller will hit stores on December 31.
