Hyperkin has just unveiled a line of limited-edition wireless controllers for Nintendo Switch and PC, inspired by some unexpected and iconic brands. The controllers draw inspiration from Sriracha hot sauce, Kool-Aid, and even Oscar Mayer hot dogs. Each controller is part of Hyperkin’s Pixel Art series and features a design that pays homage to the original SNES gamepad, complete with modern upgrades such as dual analog sticks and a second set of shoulder triggers. Additionally, the controllers support wireless Bluetooth connectivity up to 30 feet or wired connection via the included USB-C cable, and are compatible with a wide range of devices including Nintendo Switch, Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS.
What makes these controllers even more enticing is their unique designs. The Sriracha Pixel Art controller sports a red chassis with bright green thumbsticks and Sriracha rooster decals, while the Kool-Aid version features a blue body adorned with fruits and the Kool-Aid Man, and the Oscar Mayer model is yellow with a cartoony hotdog decal on the front. The limited-edition controllers are available for purchase at $40 each on Amazon or Hyperkin’s online store.
In addition to the controllers, Hyperkin has also released officially licensed Tetris controllers that are eligible for Prime shipping. These Tetris controllers are a must-have for fans of the classic game, and with only 2,000 units of each controller being manufactured, they are bound to become collector’s items.
To complement the unique controllers, Hyperkin has introduced carrying cases for the Nintendo Switch that match the designs of the controllers. Each case features an outer shell with colors and decals based on the three brands and includes a foam cushion to keep the Switch in place, as well as slots to hold up to eight game cartridges.
In my opinion, these limited-edition controllers and carrying cases offer a fun and nostalgic way for gamers to personalize their gaming experience. The unique designs and compatibility with a variety of devices make these products a compelling choice for both casual and dedicated gamers.
