This looks like a nice update to the classic unit.

SteelSeries, the worldwide leader in gaming and esports peripherals, today announced a new special offer that will provide gamers with up to four months free of Apple Arcade with the purchase of a Nimbus+ Wireless Gamepad Controller.

Apple Arcade is Apple’s popular gaming subscription service that offers unlimited access to a growing collection of over 180 premium games — all without ads or in-app purchases.

Building off the success of the wildly popular original Nimbus controller, the Nimbus+ Wireless Gamepad Controller helps bring gaming to the next level on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and Apple TV with an ergonomic design, ultra-responsive triggers and buttons, and a range of Apple connectivity options. The Nimbus+ adds a bevy of new features, including clickable joysticks, new Hall effect triggers, and a new 50-hour battery.

“The Nimbus+ Apple Arcade bundle represents an incredible customer experience and arrives at the perfect time with the rollout of 5G happening around the world,” said Craig Olson, SteelSeries President of Worldwide Mobile.

SteelSeries and Apple have a storied history of innovation and collaboration, including the introduction of Stratus, the first Apple MFi-approved wireless gamepad controller in 2014, and the launch of Nimbus, which was introduced alongside Apple TV HD in 2015. Specifically designed for Apple TV, the Nimbus controller was crafted to look, feel and perform like a first-party console gamepad, featuring superb analog sticks, a new Bluetooth gaming module, and touch-sensitive D-pads, face buttons and triggers. It was also the first Apple-authorized gamepad controller that worked with iOS, iPadOS, tvOS, and MacOS.
