Halo 20th Anniversary Cortana Duke Controller

Created in collaboration with Xbox and 343 Industries, the team at Hyperkin has announced that they’ll be releasing some rather tasty Limited and Special Edition Duke controllers, with the Cortana Limited Edition being the utter highlight – and you don’t need us to tell you that it is an absolute purple beast.

You may know of Hyperkin, for it is they who specialise in creating rather unique consoles and controllers , including officially licensed Xbox products. And with the Cortana and Xbox 20th Anniversary Editions, you certainly won’t be left wanting.

Releasing just in time for Halo Infinite, Hyperkin have confirmed that they will be releasing a collectible Cortana Edition Hyperkin Duke, for Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One in Q4 of this year. Arriving to complement the December 8th release of Halo Infinite, this hefty transparent purple beast of a controller commemorates 20 years since everyone’s favorite clever AI adorned gamers’ TV screens.

This builds on what Hyperkin have previously delivered when back in 2018, in collaboration with Xbox, Hyperkin released a replica of the original Duke controller for Xbox One. A hit with Original Xbox fans, but also people just marveling at its sheer size, the Hyperkin Duke is both a burst of nostalgia and a serious option for competitive play.

In this 2021 update, the righthand corner bears Cortana’s face, along with her familiar body designs throughout the controller. The controller itself is a bold, transparent purple, much like Cortana’s holographic form. A Cortana montage video plays right in the Xbox button when pressed. Seriously, what more do you want?

But that’s not all and as shown earlier in the summer, Hyperkin is also releasing 20th anniversary Dukes, designed for Xbox, coming in both black and white with the official Xbox 20th anniversary logo. When the Xbox button is pressed, the Original Xbox startup animation plays, but this time with the updated Xbox logo. Features of that include:
