The latest mobile gaming controller from Razer not only fits almost all iOS and Android devices, but it is also particularly compact, ergonomic and compatible with most games that support controllers.
Razer Kishi video game controller attached to the phone, and it works is similar to Joy-Con on Nintendo Switch. The most special feature of Kishi compared to the other game pad of Razer is that it can be attached to most Android and iPhone devices without using a special case like Junglecat.
Kishi can be connected directly to the phone hardware by connecting to USB Type C or Lightning, this will give a very low latency, and the Junglecat will use Bluetooth connectivity to do this. And thanks to the direct connection to the phone, Kishi does not require a separate charger but will use power directly from the phone. Of course, it has an extra charging port to power both the phone and the Razer gamepad in case of playing while charging.
Razer promises an ultra-low latency, which is achieved through the USB-C or Lightning connection – since the Razer Kishi game pad completely does without Bluetooth, there is also no battery that you would have to charge extra. Razer even thought about installing an additional port so that you can charge your smartphone while you’re gaming.
If you do not use the controller, the two halves can be joined together to form a gamepad, making it easier to take the Kishi with you. With two analog sticks, four action buttons, a D-Pad, two shoulder buttons and a few function buttons in the typical, asymmetrical arrangement, which you know from the Xbox, you don’t have to get used to it.
The layout becomes particularly practical when you stream large games to your smartphone via Google Stadia or Project xCloud. In fact, Razer Kishi is already a gaming controller recommended by Nvidia for GeForce Now, the streaming service, through which you can also experience a large number of PC games on smartphones.
According to Razer, Kishi can work with most Android and iOS games with MFi Controller compatibility. The device will be commercially available early this year but has not been revealed, but according to information from The Verge, Razer revealed that the device will cost about $100 and the Android version will be a bit cheaper compared to iOS.
