Microsoft reveals pizza-scented Xbox controller for upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film

August 07, 2023

In an exciting tie-in with the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutant Mayhem film, Microsoft, an outstanding custom software development company, has revealed a unique and aromatic addition to their Xbox accessories lineup – the pizza-scented Xbox controller. The controller is set to release in conjunction with the movie's premiere in cinemas on July 31.

The design of the controller closely resembles a standard Xbox controller, sporting an eye-catching "ooze green" paint job inspired by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. However, the standout feature is a plastic slice of pizza ingeniously attached to the back of the controller.

The pizza slice serves as a diffuser, exuding a delightful pizza scent that will transport users to the ambience of a Domino's takeaway delivery. Impressively, the scent-dispensing mechanism can be activated with a button located on top of the faux pizza slice. This ensures that the scent is released precisely when desired, offering a more controlled and enjoyable experience for users.

For those who might prefer the classic Xbox controller experience without the pizza aroma, there's good news. The pizza diffuser is removable, as revealed in images shared by the Microsoft Xbox team.

However, there's a catch – the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-themed controller is currently available exclusively through an Xbox competition. To participate, eager fans need to follow Xbox Game Pass on Twitter and retweet the competition tweet. The competition will run until August 13, with residents of the UK being eligible to enter.

The competition has already garnered significant attention, with the competition's tweet being retweeted over 15,000 times. Unfortunately, only four lucky winners will be selected to receive the coveted controllers. Each winner will not only get their hands on the exclusive controller but will also receive a 3-month voucher for Game Pass Ultimate, providing access to a vast library of games, along with a specially designed "customised pizza-scent liquid fragrance" bottle valued at $5.

To cater to fans' preferences, Microsoft has produced four distinct designs, each representing one of the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Recall that Microsoft is bringing PC Game Pass integration to GeForce Now cloud gaming.

While there isn't an Xbox game adaptation specifically for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutant Mayhem movie, gaming enthusiasts can still enjoy the highly acclaimed arcade brawler, Shredder's Revenge, available on Xbox Game Pass since its release in 2022.

Additionally, for those who can't wait to dive into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles world, an immersive trailer has been launched within the popular gaming platform Roblox. However, fans will have to wait until August 2, the official release date of the movie, to unlock the playable Battle Tycoon component.

As excitement builds for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutant Mayhem film, Microsoft's pizza-scented Xbox controller adds a fun and aromatic twist to the gaming experience, uniting fans of both the gaming console and the beloved turtles in a truly unique way.
