The PlayStation 5 DualSense Controller is finally getting some new colors thrown into the mix. Sony PlayStation this week has revealed its latest versions of the DualSense wireless controller for the PlayStation 5. The two new controllers will be available in the colors Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. The new galaxy-inspired colors for the controllers will be hitting shelves in June.
According to PlayStation, the new controller lineup will be available at all participating retailers worldwide. Release dates for the new PS5 controllers will vary by location.
Much like the previous DualSense controller release, these new controllers have the two-toned color shades, haptic feedback, and adaptive triggers. New games such as Returnal support these innovative, new DualSense controller features.
Speaking to PlayStation Blog on the color choices, design team member Leo Cardoso commented, “Our goal is to always find designs that will surprise and entice our fans, and these new colors are the result of an extensive selection process." He added, "We wanted the new controller colors to complement each other, as well as the original DualSense wireless controller and PS5 console, so we designed the colors around the theme of ‘galaxy’ as it felt like a natural progression from the original PS5 and accessories designs.”
Meanwhile, design team member Satoshi Aoyagi stated, "Both Midnight Black and Cosmic Red feature a subtle blue hue, that produces unique shades of red and black." He continued, "A blue hue is also present in the original DualSense wireless controller colors, so all three colors complement each other nicely. The controller’s button colors and detailing has been tailored to complement the new colors as well."
