Razer announces the Kishi V2

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.
