Elevating the Switch aesthetic via jaw-dropping artwork, the Nitro Deck Hellboy Special Edition is sure to be adored by any Hellboy fan.

The ideal companion to the Nitro Deck, the NEO S Hellboy Special Edition for Nintendo Switch, PC, Mobile & Smart TV Gaming, uses the entire footprint of the NEO S to display the intricately detailed artwork of the iconic comic series. Included in pack, the Hellboy themed Charging Dock proves that the NEO S Hellboy Special Edition is no mere controller, serving as both a statement piece of gaming hardware and true work of art.

Both the Nitro Deck Hellboy Special Edition and the NEO S Hellboy Special Edition have been designed to fully integrate with the CRKD ‘True Collection System’ a free mobile App for iOS™ and Android® which will register the product number and rarity ranking of your hardware into your personal secure collection, adding to your bragging rights and giving instant oversight to all your CRKD gaming gear.

Hello there! I'm a 21-year-old university student majoring in Finnish and Korean Language and Literature. I have a deep passion for art and a profound connection to the natural world. My journey through life has been a colorful one, driven by my love for creativity, music, and the wonders of the great outdoors. As a dedicated student, I've already earned a degree in Classic Cantos, a testament to my appreciation for the timeless beauty of classical music. Beyond the classroom, my artistic spirit thrives through my love for painting and drawing. These creative outlets allow me to express my thoughts and emotions, transforming blank canvases into vibrant stories. My interests go far beyond music and art. Singing, playing the piano, and exploring new melodies are integral parts of my life, providing me with both solace and exhilaration. When I'm not immersed in the world of art and music, I find solace in nature's embrace. My heart is drawn to animals and the serene beauty of the natural world, fueling my desire to protect and preserve our precious environment.
