The Razer Captain America Xbox controller and stand (opens in new tab) pairs what appears to be a standard Xbox Wireless Controller (counting among the best Xbox controllers you can use) with Razer's excellent Quick Charging Stand accessory. What makes this bundle unique is that the duo is decked out in a bold and colorful design inspired by the new Captain America revealed during Marvel's The Falcon and the Winter Soldier show on Disney+.
It looks like players will have to pay a premium in order to obtain this unique pairing. Interested parties can now sign-up to be notified when Razer begins selling the limited edition Captain America Xbox controller and charging stand, which will be available for $180, and will work with Xbox consoles, Windows PCs, and Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices.
In case you missed it, Xbox also revealed some cursed Sonic and Knuckles themed limited edition Xbox Wireless Controllers, which you have a chance of obtaining through a giveaway hosted by Xbox.
Razer is pairing a custom Xbox Wireless Controller with its excellent Quick Charging Stand, each of which themed out like Captain America from Marvel's 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.' You can sign-up for notifications now, with the set going on sale soon.

A bit late? It could have been timed to release closer to the series? try Moon Knight, Razer. Or the next one.
Takes time doesn't it. And also Marvel.
Could this have been planned to release on time and the pandemic screwed their plans? Dunno, the controller looks nice but I wonder how many specific fans of that series are out there. I mean FANS.
While the controller is technically tied to "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier," it's essentially a really colorful Captain America controller. I'm sure you'll find there's more than enough overlap between Captain America fans and Xbox players for Razer to justify this.
It would be so cool if they had a special controller for every Disney Plus Marvel show.
