The Cosmic Red has a black and red design with still dual-tone designs while the Midnight Black features a subtle hint of different shades of black and light gray detail.
Leo Cardoso, part of the design team, gave his comments regarding the new designs saying that “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.”
On the other hand, another member of the design team, Satoshi Aoyagi, gave his comments as well.
“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 compliment 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.”
We can expect the Midnight Black and Cosmic Red to hit stores and retailers by June next month, worldwide!
