Finally, Switch gamers can play Tears of the Kingdom with… a hot dog?
Gaming accessory and controller manufacturer Hyperkin announced partnerships with a handful of popular food brands to create a new line of collectible food-themed Switch controllers today. The latest run of Hyperkin’s Bluetooth controllers will have Oscar Mayer, Kool-Aid, Sriracha, Kraft Mac & Cheese, and Heinz Ketchup-themed colorways. At the time of writing, only the Oscar Mayer, Kool-Aid, and Sriracha collabs are available on Hyperkin’s site, though.
Each brand that’s currently represented in the store also has a matching Switch carrying case.
If you guessed @oscarmayer and @koolaid, you are correct! Included but not shown was @huyfongfoods Sriracha! Winners announced soon.

Every controller features a translucent, colored body — think the clear controllers that were all the rage during he N64 era — with an opaque faceplate featuring a design inspired by its respective brand and themed sticks and buttons. While this is Hyperkin’s first collaboration with food brands for this line, it’s produced other branded versions of these Super Nintendo-inspired Switch controllers themed after Tetris and The Miraculous Ladybug.
If those previous brand deals for this controller line are anything to go off of, these collabs probably won’t reach the peripheral maker’s Xbox and PlayStation lines, sadly. So if you plan on grabbing one of these food-themed controllers, you’ll likely only be able to use them on your Switch, PC, game streaming, and mobile devices.
