Hogwarts Legacy PS5 Controller Unveiled, Order Now
Just ahead of the worldwide release of Hogwarts Legacy on February 10, Avalanche revealed this beautiful special controller, which is available in the US and UK. The controller is styled in a slick black, featuring a gorgeous gold finish on the handles and an image of Hogwarts on the touchpad. All those people going mad for the game already will absolutely love this thing.
In a PlayStation blog entry, Avalanche Software Artist Vanessa Palmer and Art Director Jeff Bunker talked some deets about this special controller:
We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with the PlayStation team on the creation of this new DualSense controller for the upcoming game, Hogwarts Legacy. Our goal was to bring a hint of the in-game experience into the player’s hands…literally. Many themes were considered, from the representation of the different houses, magic wands, beasts or even the sorting hat. But it was clear very early that we should focus on the star of the game, Hogwarts itself. So we centered the iconic castle and incorporated swirling motifs of Ancient Magic into the design, highlighting the player’s special role within the story.
From the beginning, we had a vision of a simple, clean and sophisticated aesthetic. White, blue, and aqua, amongst a number of other colors, were tried but in the end, we chose matte black as the primary color for the controller, not only because it contributed to our desired aesthetic, but also because it hints at the darker themes that players can expect in the game. To add a touch of authenticity, we incorporated old-gold Victorian intaglio etching into the designs of the castle and Ancient Magic swirls, highlighting the era in which the game takes place.
