There’s a new Xbox Aqua Shift Special Edition controller for gamers to collect, and this one might be the nicest looking yet.
If you’re a fan of sailing the ocean in Sea of Thieves, what better controller for you than Xbox’s new Aqua Shift? Since the launch of the Xbox Series X/S, Microsoft has been pushing the Xbox Wireless Controller as its gamepad of choice.
And although the controller isn’t as next-gen as Sony’s DualSense, it’s one of the best-feeling gamepads in Xbox history.
But since Xbox fans can make their own Xbox Series X/S controller in Design Lab, with any color combinations that they like, how can the company sell a new variant?
Well, the Xbox Aqua Shift Special Edition controller has more to offer than just a standard gamepad.
Xbox Wireless Controller – Aqua Shift Special Edition
The new Aqua Shift Special Edition Xbox Wireless Controller is more than just a color swap.
Not only is the Aqua Shift Special Edition a beautiful blue controller, but its color also appears to change in your very hands.
“Aqua shift features a surreal, color-shifting blue shimmer that you need to see to believe,” Xbox announces. “Playing with the way the prismatic color moves across our controller, you’ll feel like Aqua Shift comes to life in your hands.”
As well as a mystical blue color-scheme, the Aqua Shift Wireless Controller has a few more features to offer.
The limited-edition Xbox controller is the first Series X/S gamepad to feature rubberized side grips. These grips are decorated with a unique dual color swirl on every unit.
On top of that, triggers, numbers, and the controller back each have textured grips, to keep players connected with their gaming experience. And finally, the next-gen Share button can be used to capture screenshots, record gaming clops, or playback your recent footage.
