There are not many unaware that the film adaptation of Sonic The Hedgehog is getting a sequel. We saw the first trailer for the sequel back in December. And this trailer received a much better reception than its predecessor debut. And as we near the April release, the promotion is slowly starting to increase
Now Microsoft is joining in to help promote Sonic The Hedgehog 2. They have teamed up with Paramount Pictures to bring us some Sonic merchandise to win. What we have is a custom Sonic The Hedgehog Xbox Series S and controllers inspired by Sonic himself and his rival Knuckles.
Custom consoles aren’t uncommon. Neither are themed controllers. For example, we have the limited edition Halo Series X and Elite 2 controller. Those got announced with the game’s release date in August. Going further back we’ve seen custom systems for Cyberpunk 2077 and Forza Horizon. Even Sony released customer-designed hardware from a controller for The Last of Us Part 2 to a Spider-Man console and God of War one among others. But this one from Microsoft which Xbox Wire posted the details for is unique.
We have furry Controllers which must be a first. The official description though is as follows
With textured coatings reminiscent of the “bristly” texture of hedgehogs in the wild, the new Xbox Wireless Controllers come in Sonic Blue and Knuckles Red.
The blog post states how to enter to win this unique setup. It’s most definitely not a design we have seen close to before. However, what do you make of this news? It is certainly eye-catching and has a very interesting design. As always get in touch and let us know your thoughts. And if you end up winning this set we would certainly love to hear your thoughts on these controllers.
