Xbox Lunar Shift Controller Out Now For $70

The controller is inspired by fantastical gaming worlds beyond Earth.


Microsoft has revealed a new special edition Xbox controller, and it looks pretty nice. The Lunar Shift controller is themed around outer space and worlds beyond. Microsoft's official wording is that the controller is "inspired by fantastical gaming worlds" that bring players to "new heights beyond Earth's orbit."

The controller's color changes from silver to gold depending on the lighting, which Microsoft says helps give it a "stylized, smokey atmosphere." It has rubberized gray and black grips with unique patterns adorning them. Check it out below.

Like other Xbox controllers, this one also connects to the Xbox Accessories app for button-mapping customization, and it also works on Windows 10 PCs and mobile devices via Bluetooth.

The $70 USD Lunar Shift controller is out today, October 11, around the world. It's just the latest special edition Xbox controller, following the likes of Mineral Camo, Deep Pink, and Aqua Shift. Additionally, Microsoft released a new Xbox Elite "Core" controller, priced at $130, earlier this year.

Microsoft also partnered with Razer for a new Lunar Shift charging stand--it's made using the same color scheme as the controller. The stand is also available starting today, priced at $50.
