Amazon announced today that its Luna cloud gaming service and Luna Controller have officially launched in Canada, offering gamers instant access to console-quality games on their existing devices. This is an exciting announcement if you’re a gamer that has been jealous of Luna being U.S. only, until now.

Amazon Luna, powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), enables customers to stream and play games on supported devices without the need for lengthy downloads or updates, expensive hardware, or complicated setups.

The Luna Controller, designed specifically for cloud gaming, connects directly to the cloud via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, allowing seamless control and minimal gameplay latency. Gamers can easily switch between screens, such as from Fire TV to mobile phones, without additional pairing or configuration changes, thanks to the Luna Controller’s Cloud Direct technology.

“With Amazon Luna, we’re making gaming easier and more convenient by offering instant access to console-quality games on devices customers already own,” said Daniel Rausch, Vice President of Amazon Entertainment Devices and Services in a statement to iPhone in Canada. “Gamers in the U.S. have been enjoying Luna for the past year, so we’re thrilled to now expand the service to customers in Canada, Germany, and the United Kingdom.”
