Razer today announced the launch the Razer Kishi V2, an improved version of its already outstanding Razer Kishi controller. Razer Nexus, a subscription-free mobile app, has been added to the latest edition. This will make gaming on the move even more enjoyable.
The Kishi V2 is actually a reinterpretation of the Razer Wolverine V2 control controller. It will have microswitch controls that give you a more tactile experience when gaming on your smartphone. You can also use the Share button to share your funny moments or clutch kills with your friends and colleagues.
It still retains many of its original features, which made it a great controller. The controller does not use Bluetooth, so you will experience low latency gameplay. It connects to your phone using a USB C connection. It also has a pass-through charging port that allows you to charge your phone while you are playing if you get drained.
Razer also improved the ergonomics of its controller, which includes a more comfortable grip that makes it easy to play for long periods without any problems. The Kishi V2 boasts a simpler bridge, which offers more stability than its predecessor. This ensures maximum compatibility with a variety of handsets including the following:Razer Phone / Razer Phone 2Samsung Galaxy S8 / S8+ / S9 / S9+ / S10 / S10+ / S20 Series / S21 Series / Note 8 / Note 9 / Note 10 / Note 10+Google Pixel 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6
Two multifunction buttons on the controller can be adjusted to your liking in the Razer Nexus App. You can quickly launch the app by pressing a button on your Kishi V2 and access all of the installed games. You can also stream to Facebook and YouTube, find other compatible games, or tweak the Razer Kishi V2 settings.
Razer's Head, Mobile & Console Division Richard Hashim expressed his enthusiasm for the Kishi V2: "The original Razer Kishi opened the doors for a new type of console-quality controls in the mobile gaming market. And we're thrilled that the Kishi V2 is pushing this experience forward in every way."
He said, "With the cutting-edge tech that we've packed in Kishi V2, players will now be able to enjoy the same look & feel of their favorite PC and console games wherever they go, without missing a beat."
Razer will sell the Kishi V2 Android at $99.99. The iOS version will be available later in the year, and is expected to debut later in the fall.
