Sonic the Hedgehog is making his return to the big screen on April 8, 2022, and fans of the character are excited owing to the first movie’s faithful rendition and success. The movie is in full swing of the pre-launch marketing phase and they have partnered with Xbox to bring some goodies for the die-hard fans.
Xbox’s Partnership Director has announced recently that the company will launch custom Sonic the Hedgehog 2 controllers and console and they have a unique feel to them. Keep reading ahead to see what have thy come up with.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Custom Xbox Series S And Controllers
The custom controls are covered in fur and will be available in two variants, Sonic Blue and Knuckles Red. The custom Xbox Series S also features an iconic Ring as the frame for the fan vents and a custom Sonic vs Knuckles paint job.
To get your hands on these furry pieces of Sonic memorabilia fans would have to enter a sweepstakes contest to win them, sadly they are not up for sale. The rules for the enter-to-win sweepstakes are mentioned here.
The controllers are designed to reminisce the bristly texture of a wild hedgehog and to avoid any lawsuits these won’t be spiky as the animal. Though these controllers will be a great talking piece to be displayed in your shelf, they are definitely not made with long sweaty gaming session in mind.
To get yourself one of these super-exclusive items, “Fans can enter two sweepstakes for a chance to win the exclusive custom Xbox Series S and both the Sonic Blue and Knuckles Red Xbox Wireless Controllers by either (1) retweeting the official Xbox sweepstakes tweet and including the hashtag #XboxSonic2Sweepstakes, or (2) for fans in the US, by redeeming Microsoft Rewards points.”
