Sonic the Hedgehog celebrated its 30th anniversary last year, and Sega has big plans to keep expanding the franchise. The film, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, is releasing in April, with a third film and a live action series focused on Knuckles are also in production. To fuel the hype for that cinematic push even further, Sega has now partnered with Xbox.

Microsoft has unveiled a Sonic-themed custom special edition Xbox Series S console and Xbox controllers. The controllers in particular, coming in “Sonic Blue” and “Knuckles Red” variants, are… let’s say interesting- for starters, they’re extremely furry. Check out the image above.

The console and controllers can’t just be picked up in stores though- they’re only being given away as part of a sweepstakes until April 4, for which you either need to follow Xbox on Twitter and retweet the tweet below (with #XboxSonic2Sweepstakes included), or, for those in the US, redeem Microsoft Store points.

Meanwhile, open world 3D platformer Sonic Frontiers is due out this Holiday for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
