Microsoft has already released two translucent Phantom Xbox controllers in white and black, but the company now has the best color yet: magenta. The latest translucent design fades to a dark pink, and like all modern Xbox controllers, includes Bluetooth support and a textured grip. Preorders for the new controller begin today for $69.99, and it will be available on March 17th.

Microsoft has been doing custom Design Lab controllers for the Xbox for years, but these special Phantom translucent designs are only available in white, black, or magenta. The design includes a matte, textured window that teases the inner workings of the Xbox controller in a beautiful way. This controller also works on iOS, Android, and Windows 10 PCs, and will also support the next-gen Xbox Series X.

You can preorder the new magenta controller over at Microsoft’s Xbox store.
