Gaming peripheral maker Hyperkin is releasing another Duke replica, this time in green. The black version was surprisingly ergonomical for being a $70 nostalgia trap, but if you like a splash of color to go with your ginormous hands, the green Duke has you covered. It’s currently available at Gamestop and Amazon.
