The Xbox One may have arrived without a remote for controlling media playback and volume, but it looks like this situation is about to be rectified according to a product listing on Amazon UK.

The device is set for release on April 4 and will cost £19.99, according to the retailer’s listing. There are scant details of the item, but it does say that the keys are backlit and will illuminate whenever the controller is picked up. It also seems like you’ll be able to control your TV volume and power using the device too, as well as an Xbox One.

The device was also listed on other pages, like Amazon Canada, but has since been removed. Interestingly, the date on the Google-cached product listing says it’s set for release on March 4 in Canada. We’ve asked Microsoft for details and will let you know if we hear back.
