Overwatch character-themed Xbox One controllers
Blizzard recently unveiled a set of character-themed Xbox One controllers made in partnership with ARTitude. The announcement was posted in a blog post on Blizzard’s European site and stated that the controllers will be given away through various contests and giveaways throughout the continent.
In case you’re wondering if they will also be available for fans in the United States, there aren’t any details available on the subject just yet.
A sneak peek at the controller’s designs
There were 48 custom console controllers released and the 24 models represent all 24 of Overwatch’s heroes. These designs were created by talented European street artists such as Ned Nedllec, Tsuchiniko San, and Simon Delart.
D.Va’s controller has a bright pink color scheme and decals that match the ones on her MEKA. Junkrat’s controller features a chaotic look and is made in graffiti style. Mercy’s controller features an eye-catching wing design. Sombra’s controller just might be the best one of the entire set featuring a fantastic vibrant pink circuitry design over an egg-plant-colored controller.
According to Blizzard, those of you who are interested in the controllers should keep an eye on its social media channels.
