Although technical details are still scarce, a report by Eurogamer said that the limited-edition green wireless controller’s designed for games that make full use of the navpad, such as Pro Evolution Soccer.

A third-party publisher also told Eurogamer that the pad’s designed to work with Street Fighter IV.

The controller was photographed at the ongoing Leipzig games developers convention, where a Microsoft spokesperson said it “offers enhancements to D-pad functionality, which will add to the experience of playing games where the D-pad is the primary control mechanism”.

The controller will initially only be available in Europe, Asia and Latin America. Microsoft has yet to state the price.
