Kingdom Hearts fan-made controllers are being made in anticipation to the release for Kingdom Hearts III this month –featuring designs for PS4 AND Switch controllers
After waiting five years since its announcement, Kingdom Hearts III is finally releasing this month worldwide. Custom controller artist Turtle Shell Customs is prepping the release with fan-made controller designs for the Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Cons and the PS4’s DualShock 4.
The Joy-Con controller resembles the Oblivion and Oathkeeper Keyblades, the weapons used by Roxas in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. The left controller represents the Oblivion Keyblade, which features a primarily black and purple Joy-Con and a drawing of the Keyblade on the strap. The right features Oathkeeper and has a light grey and yellow color scheme with the Keyblade on the strap as well.
The other controller is dedicated to the Birth by Sleep antagonist Vanitas. The controller features a primarily black controller with red and light blue buttons. On the left grip, you see a symbol representing Vanitas’ Keyblade. Since you can actually play Kingdom Hearts III on PS4 (as of now anyway), this would be a great pick-up if you missed out on the super limited Kingdom Hearts III PS4 Pro.
If you’re looking to pick up either of these controllers, the original artist Turtle Shell Customs is taking message requests on their Instagram for commissions. Of course, keep in mind that modifying any controller will void its original warranty.
And in other Kingdom Hearts III news, the full version of “Face My Fears” by Utada Hikaru and Skrillex recently leaked in HD quality. This will be the track for the opening cinematic to the game and was teased in the final battle trailer for the game last month. And if you haven’t done so already, I recommend pre-ordering Kingdom Hearts III on Amazon before release, this game will be sure to sell out at a lot of places.
