Sonic 2 Xbox controllers are Microsoft’s wildest collab yet

The power of fur in the palm of your hand.

Xbox and Paramount Pictures have teamed up to celebrate the upcoming release of Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

For a limited time, you can snag a bundle featuring a custom Xbox Series S console and two Xbox Wireless Controllers through a pair of sweepstakes events.

With “textured coatings reminiscent of the bristly texture of hedgehogs in the wild,” the new Xbox Wireless Controllers come in Sonic Blue and Knuckles Red.

In the film, Knuckles is voiced by Idris Elba and Ben Schwartz returns as Sonic.

Fans can enter by either retweeting the official Xbox sweepstakes tweet and including the hashtag #XboxSonic2Sweepstakes, or by redeeming Microsoft Rewards points.

The customized black Xbox Series S console features a golden portal ring shining on its surface alongside an embossed Sonic the Hedgehog 2 logo.

There’s nothing else like them, but these shaggy controllers probably aren’t the best pick for Nacho Night.

The controllers also come in a spiffy display case themed after Sonic’s iconic golden rings.

They might not be the most practical, but there’s no denying these bad boys are eye-catching.

Thanks to our friends at Microsoft for letting us check out these wild products.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 comes to theatres April 8, 2022.
