Razer launches new handheld mobile controller Kishi V2 alongside new Nexus gaming application
The iOS version for the controller is set to be released this fall.
Local gaming giant Razer launched the Kishi V2 — the second-generation of its Kishi mobile gaming controller — on Wednesday (Jun 8).
Compared to its predecessor, the Kishi V2 is compatible with more mobile devices, including Google’s Pixel Six series and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 line-up.
The new model will also feature tactile microswitch controls which are inspired by their Wolverine V2 console controllers, according to Razer.
Additionally, the controller will come with removable cushions that allow gamers to attach their phones without taking off their casing.
Other new features include a share button for users to capture stills or video clips which they can then send to their friends. The controller is also equipped with dual multifunction buttons and a knob which can launch the brand’s new Razer Nexus application.
The application will provide access to games from services such as Xbox Game Pass and GeForce NOW. Gamers can also use it to stream on Youtube and Facebook.
The Kishi V2 is priced at $149.90 and can be purchased on Razer’s website as well as authorised retailers nationwide.
Currently, the controller is only available for Android devices with the iOS version set to hit the market this fall.
