When it came out, the bulky size was such a big problem yet some people loved it.

The announcement has been made on Hyperkin’s official Twitter page and the company confirmed that they will be bringing it to the stores by the end of March this year. Previously, it was supposed to be an exact replica of the original controller but in order to make it usable in modern titles and not just a nostalgia machine, the designers have made some tweaks to it and replaced the Xbox logo in the middle with a large, circular OLED screen.

It also left and right bumpers along with a detachable 9-foot cable. The controller works with both Xbox One console and Windows 10 PCs.
