Special edition Xbox controllers aren’t exactly breaking news, but Microsoft unveiled a pair that are pretty unique. The shadow designmodels come in “Copper Shadow” and “Dusk Shadow” hues that fade to black toward the bottom. They also have a faux-metallic finish, judging by a pair of videos tweeted out by Major Nelson (below). Otherwise, they’re the same as regular controllers, but at $70 each, are $10 more expensive. In North and South America, you can get get both later this month at Microsoft’s Store, or find the Copper Shadow model at Gamestop and Dusk Shadow variant at Best Buy. It’ll hit the rest of the world in April.
These new controllers feature a faded color gradient finish – blue-to-black for Dusk Shadow and copper-to-black for Copper Shadow – which is the first of its kind for Xbox One Wireless Controllers. They also come equipped with all the standard features of the Xbox One Wireless Controller, including Impulse Triggers, responsive thumbsticks, an enhanced D-pad, and a 3.5mm stereo headset jack.
