Xbox Series X|S 'Lunar Shift' controller appears to leak on Amazon

Microsoft could be gearing up to launch another controller design ready for the holiday season, after an account on Twitter claims to have spotted a 'Lunar Shift' Xbox Series X|S controller on Amazon.

Earlier this week, Microsoft announced and launched the new Xbox Wireless Controller - Mineral Camo Special Edition, which joins the company's lineup of camo-themed controllers. Now it looks like last year's Xbox Wireless Controller - Aqua Shift Special Edition could be getting a sibling (thanks, VGC), after Twitter user Espía de Ofertas reportedly spotted a 'Lunar Shift' listing on Amazon.

When posting the images on Twitter, Espía de Ofertas said “I think I just found an Xbox controller on Amazon that Microsoft hasn’t announced yet. Correct me if I’m wrong.”

Looking at the description on the apparent packaging, the Lunar Shift's description looks to be very similar to the Aqua Shift; sporting a "surreal shimmer" that "changes colour with light and motion, as well as textured grips with a swirl design.

At the time of writing, we've been unable to find the listing for ourselves, but with the holiday season fast approaching, there is a good chance that this is real and that the listing has swiftly been removed. Of course, with anything like this, we always recommend taking it with a pinch of salt until Microsoft officially announces it.
