Star Wars fans and gamers have some new gear to snatch up with the reveal of a special The Mandalorian themed Xbox controller!
Well this is a nice surprise and undoubtedly connected to the first Mando Monday reveal line-up (though it technically hasn’t happened at the time of this writing). Up on the Microsoft Store, pre-orders are up for a very swanky looking Xbox controller and charging stand.
Armor-clad in a Mandalorian pattern reminiscent of beskar steel, this Xbox Wireless Controller and Xbox Pro Charging Stand are a triumph of ergonomic design. Enjoy textured grips, custom button mapping, and up to twice the wireless range.* A magnetic contact system allows for one-handed play while you charge. Walk the Way of the Mandalore with technology forged together for a matchless fit.
The design takes inspiration from The Mandalorian‘s central figure, including his Beskar armor and even a cheeky reference to “The Child” on the back. I love it, and need it.
Popular as the new show is, I can’t help but feel a little strange about this considering there isn’t a Mandalorian game in existence (or even announced). Definitely feels like something that would go well with a tie-in game rather than just part of the show.
Hopefully we’ll get one sooner or later (crossing my fingers for a Bounty Hunter style game), but this is up for pre-order now for $160. The release date listed is for December 31, 2020, but I have a feeling that’s a placeholder date at the moment. Let’s see if the Mando Monday presentation happening in a little bit brings more explicit details!
