We had to check the date cause this feels like an April Fools, but it looks like Xbox and Sega have teamed up to release limited edition furry controllers with a special Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Xbox Series S.

The custom Xbox Series S features the iconic golden ring from the franchise and the series characters embossed on its surface but it’s those Xbox Wireless Controllers that have us all wondering if we are being tricked.

The blue and red textured coatings are inspired by their namesakes, the Sonic Blue and Knuckles Red custom Xbox Wireless Controllers feature an outer shell reminiscent of “bristly” coat of hedgehogs.
