Several years ago, NBA met the Looney Tunes franchise through Space Jam. The live-action / cartoon brought NBA legend Michael Jordan alongside the Looney Tunes characters to play a tournament and save their world. Several years have passed, and Warner Bros will bring Space Jam 2: A New Legacy on July 16. The new animation will bring no other than the NBA’s current legend, Lebron James. To celebrate the highly-anticipated movie, Microsoft has announced a new limited-edition collection of the Xbox Controller themed after the movie.

The new controllers are really unique and beautiful. It adds a lot of style for those who want to defeat the “conventional design”.
