Microsoft revealed that the original Xbox games would arrive for the Xbox One via Backward Compatibility, a nostalgic gesture for all game enthusiasts. It doesn’t stop there as there’s more good news for old school fans: accessory manufacturer Hyperkin just unveiled that it will be releasing a new controller called The Duke. This will be a great working replica of the classic Xbox Controller.

The new controller’s features

The controller should be released just in time for the holiday season this year. Even if it is a replica, it also has some features of its own, unique features which were not implemented in the original Xbox controller. These include an LCD screen in the middle featuring an animated Xbox logo.

The controller will also include a 9-foot long detachable cable, and it will work on both PCs running Windows 10 and Xbox One consoles.

The pricing of the controller is not yet set and will not be available shortly, but as soon as we find out something, we will let you know. Considering Hyperkin recently made references to the controller being limited edition, supplies will likely sell out fast once officially released.

You can wait until the replica is launched or you can get a custom designed controller from the Xbox design lab until then. A year ago Microsoft launched its Xbox Design Lab offering fans the chance to purchase their own customized version of the Xbox One controller. This is also an excellent alternative, in case you need a controller sooner.

The controller is not available on Microsoft’s Store yet, but we expect it to land in the coming days.

After all, the New Duke was already approved by Xbox back in September.
