Nacon Reveals Expansive Lineup of Xbox Accessories

Written by on | OpenCritic

Nacon, the development house formerly known as Bigben, has revealed a lineup of next-gen accessories for Xbox Series X, Series S, and Xbox Cloud Gaming on mobile phones.

Introducing it as the Nacon MG-X Series, the development team has revealed a pair of controllers meant to sturdily hold your mobile device in place for cloud gaming via Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which is currently available on compatible Android devices up to 6.7 inches long.

Both controllers, the MG-X and MG-X Pro, connect via Bluetooth 4.2 and both include a rechargeable battery which allows players to game on the go for up to 20 hours, a number that comes in considerably longer than Nintendo Switch, which tends to max out around 8 hours.

The MG-X looks a lot like the Switch, in fact. It holds your phone in the middle and features all the buttons you'd expect on a normal Xbox gamepad, only with rounded handles on the side. The MG-X Pro, meanwhile, feels more like a traditional Xbox controller and features the same style of grips you'd find bundled with the console itself.

Two more controllers were revealed as well, and in both cases are compatible with Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. While both are wired - Microsoft maintains exclusivity developing wireless controllers for its console - they each come with different features and form factors for different audiences. 

The Revolution includes full-featured software for creating profiles, a carry case, stick accessories and additional weights. Nacon says it will appeal to the most demanding gamers. Meanwhile, the Pro Compact controller seeks versatility through offering a standard game mode or advanced mode thanks to a dedicated app available for consoles and PC. It includes programmable buttons, stick settings, and trigger sensitivity options.

All four controllers are set to arrive in 2021, sometime after the launch of Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on November 10.
