Microsoft has revealed a very special Xbox controller for Star Wars fans, and it will work on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and even PC. It's based around the iconic armour of Din Djarin, the helmeted protagonist of The Mandalorian TV series. Tragically, there is no Baby Yoda version.

Sure to be tempting a lot of Star Wars fans, the official product name for this beauty is "Controller Gear Mandalorian Wireless Xbox Controller & Xbox Pro Charging Stand Set" - it's sold out on the UK Microsoft website right now, but there does seem to be stock on the US Microsoft website.

Mandalorian Xbox controller specs and features

As the official product page says: "Armor-clad in a Mandalorian pattern reminiscent of beskar steel, this Xbox Wireless Controller and Xbox Pro Charging Stand are a triumph of ergonomic design."

Fans are invited to enjoy "textured grips and custom button mapping" and a magnetic contact system which "allows for one-handed play while you charge."

Basically, it's an Xbox Wireless Controller and a charging stand, slathered in a lovely Star Wars design. Who wouldn't want that??
