Announced at the first annual NACON Connect digital event, the relatively young company introduced brand new controllers. During their video presentation, they talked about how NACON was striving to introduce a new standard of quality for third-party controllers that were just as high quality as controllers directly made by major publishers.
In fact, NACON now has a direct partnership with RIG and Microsoft to help make this dream real. This partnership is to ensure that these alternative choices for controllers and controller peripherals, headsets, attachments, etc. will also be available for the Xbox Series X consoles when they release to the public in the coming months.
This partnership is a major step up for NACON. The company has made a name for itself mostly making controllers and everything from headsets to fighting game sticks to gaming chairs for PC and PlayStation owners. But moving up to working directly with Microsoft to continue making specialized gear for gamers in the next console generation is an impressive feat for any company.
NACON may sound like a new name but it is the result of company Bigben Interactive gaining multiple studios and rebranding itself. The company has had a hand in publishing what has been deemed AA productions, mid-tier games with a focus on experimentation and alternative ideas. These projects have included The Sinking City and Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter. NACON is also publishing several titles licensed by Onyx Path publishing based on the urban gothic setting known as World of Darkness. These titles include the recently announced Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong and Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood.
It's comforting to know that even if the next generation of gaming's titles might be seeing a price hike, NACON is remembering there are plenty of people out there who are trying to save money while still playing like total pros.
