Microsoft Announces Glow-in-the-Dark Xbox One Controller

Yo-ho-ho and a… glow-in-the-dark controller.

Microsoft has announced a tie-in accessory for upcoming pirate-themed action-adventure game Sea of Thieves, with a deep purple, glow-in-the-dark Xbox One controller, available as of next month.

Featuring a “translucent design” and “laser-etched barnacles”, the controller also has its own hidden treasure in the form of one single golden trigger (it’s the right trigger, if you’re wondering) as well as a nautical design on the rear of the controller. The front face of the controller has as its centrepiece a glow-in-the-dark skull wearing an eyepatch, and continuing with the nautical theme, the left control stick has the appearance of a compass.

The piratical controller is launching February 15, which gives you plenty of time to break it in before Sea of Thieves launches for PC and Xbox One March 20.
