Microsoft’s Xbox One pad is perhaps the peak of modern controller design, but retro gaming is a really big deal at the moment.
Hyperkin is offering Xbox One and Windows 10 gamers the chance to enjoy current-gen games with a pad inspired by the beloved Super Nintendo and the Sega Megadrive 16-bit consoles.
The officially licensed X91 ’90s-style’ controller promises retro design, modern ergonomics and a premium build for the affordable price of $29.99. There’s a 9-foot cable (it’s not wireless) and offers vibration feedback.
The Hyperkin X91 is released on February 21 and is now available for pre-order and is available in white, red and black.
They’re named Ocean Shadow and Winter Forces. We’re all in on the Ocean Shadow version, which starts off as with a matte black top that fades into metallic blue.
The Winter Forces version, with its patchy camouflage look, is a little less attractive.
