At launch of the PlayStation 5, Sony only announced one colour scheme for the new Dualsense controller, which has a black and white dual tone finish. Sony has now introduced two new colours for the Dualsense, namely Midnight Black and Cosmic Red.
Sony typically does not offer multiple dual-tone colours for their PlayStation controllers, so these new colours are rather surprising to see.
The two new colours continue to feature dual tone designs, with Cosmic Red having a black and red design, and Midnight Black having two subtly different shades of black with light grey detailing.
Commenting on the new designs, Leo Cardoso from the design team said:
Our goal is to always find designs that will surprise and entice our fans, and these new colors are the result of an extensive selection process. We wanted the new controller colors to complement each other, as well as the original DualSense wireless controller and PS5 console, so we designed the colors around the theme of ‘galaxy’ as it felt like a natural progression from the original PS5 and accessories designs.
Satoshi Aoyagi, also from the design team said:
Both Midnight Black and Cosmic Red feature a subtle blue hue, that produces unique shades of red and black. A blue hue is also present in the original DualSense wireless controller colors, so all three colors complement each other nicely. The controller’s button colors and detailing has been tailored to complement the new colors as well. We hope these new additions will bring further joy and excitement to our fans’ gaming experience.
Midnight Black and Cosmic Red Dualsense controllers will be available for purchase in stores globally starting next month.
