As Microsoft continues to come up with new awesome designs for console peripherals, they constantly push imagination to its limits and find ways to further elevate our Xbox gaming experience.

The company just announced a new edition of controllers coming to Xbox SeriesX/S consoles, in the form of the Aqua Shift Special Edition.

The new shimmery blue finish makes this controller perhaps Microsoft’s flashiest one yet. But if you are thinking that this shiny blue color is its only distinctive feature, then you are mistaken.

This controller also has rubberized side grips that have a unique dual-color swirl on every unit, according to Microsoft.

If you want to get your hands on this bad boy, you can preorder it now in select Xbox markets worldwide for $69.99.

In the US, Microsoft’s store shows an August 31st availability date. You might like to know that it’s also available for preorder through Amazon.

The Aqua Shift Special Edition joins the large family of Xbox Series X / S controllers that have been released so far.

And if you are into custom-designed controllers for your gaming station, remember that Microsoft also reopened the Xbox Design Lab in June to let players design their own custom controllers.
