Razer has unveiled the second generation version of their Kishi mobile controller.
“The original Razer Kishi blew the doors open for a new category of console-quality controls for the mobile gaming market, and we’re thrilled that Kishi V2 is pushing that experience forward in every possible way,” said Razer’s Head of Mobile & Console Division, Richard Hashim. “With the cutting-edge technology that we’ve packed into Kishi V2, players can now enjoy the same look and feel of their favorite console and PC games wherever they go without skipping a beat.”
With the Kishi V2, one of the big changes is the use of microswitches, which should offer a more clicky feel to the buttons.
Like the original Kishi, the V2 uses a USB-C connection for low latency gameplay. There’s also a pass-through charging port, since the Kishi V2 is powered by your phone.
Speaking of buttons, the Kishi V2 features the following buttons:
- Two clickable analog thumbsticks
- One mechanical D-pad
- Four face buttons
- Two triggers (L2/R2)
- Two bumpers (L1/R1)
- Two multifunction buttons (M1/M2)
- Menu and Options buttons
- Share button (requires Razer Nexus)
- Razer Nexus app launch button
The Kishi V2 for Android also brings improved compatibility of larger Android phones like the Google Pixel 6 series, Samsung Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy S22 and Note 20 series.
The max supported dimensions is 11.5mm thick and 170mm in length.
The Kishi V2 for Android is available today from website for $129 CAD. The iPhone version of the Kishi V2 will be coming this fall.
