In a strange (pun intended) but exciting concoction of entertainment conglomerates, Microsoft has just partnered up with Marvel Studios to unveil a brand new limited-edition Xbox Series S console with a custom design based off the upcoming comic-book film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Not only that but the company has also designed four custom Xbox Wireless Controllers all featuring unique artwork inspired by the main characters of the film.
Firstly, the console itself features one of the film’s main antagonists, Gargantos. As the name might suggest, this is your typical big bad monster that the heroes face in the film to level up before they fight the real villain. The custom Xbox Series S has Gargantos rising from the side with its octopus-like tentacles engrossing the length of the console. And as a neat little addition, the ventilation cutout is actually painted to look like the big eye at the top of Sanctum Sanctorum, Doctor Stranger’s operating HQ of sorts.
As for the controllers, all four of them are wildly different from each other. The main highlight here is obviously the one that features Doctor Strange’s Eye of Agamotto. Then there is one controller for Wong, one for America Chavez, and finally one for Wanda Maximoff, aka the Scarlet Witch. Each controller takes elements from the respective character’s costume and incorporates the texture of their suit in the design.
Now, the real kicker here is that you can’t technically buy any of these things. For now, at least, Xbox is keeping the limited edition console and controllers restricted to a lucky draw where fans can win either item. You can participate in the giveaway by retweeting the official Xbox sweepstakes tweet linked to this lucky draw. That tweet, however, hasn’t been posted yet so you’ll have to keep your eye out for that one. We’ll attach it here as soon as it’s available.
Update: The tweet is now available:
What kind of sorcery is this?
