Sony has announced the release of two new colours for the PS5 DualSense controller; Midnight Black and Cosmic Red.
The two new controllers were announced on Twitter by PlayStation with an accompanying video, revealing how the controllers will retain the white controller’s two-tone colour scheme.
The Cosmic Red controller features a red and black design that, according to the PlayStation Blog, was inspired by “the unique vivid shades of red found throughout the cosmos”.
The Midnight Black controller, meanwhile, features two subtly different shades of black with grey detailing, reflecting “how we view space through the night sky”.
According to the PlayStation Blog, the two controllers will release on June 18th. At the time of writing, the Cosmic Red and Midnight Black PS5 controllers can only be pre-ordered at the following websites in the UK:
