According to the PlayStation Blog, a brand new color way for the DualShock 4 controller will release next month on November 14. The color, Sunset Orange, will be a special edition color variant for the controller, and will only be available in select markets.

As you can tell from the image above, the controller is a vibrant orange that is contrasted with dark purple buttons, sticks, and back. The Sunset Orange controller is another special variant, joining the likes of the Gold and Silver, Destiny 2, PlayStation F.C., Crystal range, and Gran Turismo Sport editions. According to the company, the controller will not be available to purchase from UK and Ireland, France, Poland, Russia, the Middle East, or Africa.

In case you missed it, this is the second controller that Sony has announced in the span of two days. Yesterday, they announced that a Mini Wired Gamepad by Hori would be coming out this holiday season. For more information on that, check out below:

The controller, which opts for a hard-wired design over the wireless function of the DualShock 4, is 40% smaller than the DualShock 4 and features a more flat design in order to fit into smaller hands. The controller also features a much cheaper price point than the DualShock 4, clocking in at only $29.99. While the tinier gamepad doesn’t offer a large touchpad like the DualShock 4 does, Sony says that certain touch pad inputs can be simulated with the left and right sticks of the gamepad. The purpose of the controller, according to Sony, is to act as a good purchase for people to pick up for companion play.
