While mobile gaming offers millions of captivating games, one issue has always been a lack of proper controls. Fortunately, the Razer Kishi V2 looks to change all that with a slick design incorporating thumb sticks with face and shoulder buttons.
The Razer Kishi V2 allows players to slide their smartphones horizontally between side-mounted controllers. An adjustable bridge piece securely holds all the most popular Android smartphones so that the mobile controller and phone become one convenient unit.
The dual thumb sticks offset each other and have the left knob higher and the right knob lower, following a familiar control layout for console gamers. On the right controller, players will find X, Y, A, and B buttons along with shoulder and trigger buttons. A directional pad, shoulder button, and trigger are on the left side. Other included buttons could be used for selecting the game menu, start button, and back function.
The striking matte black color scheme looks stylish and seamlessly complements various Android smartphones. Razer has also included the ability for passthrough charging, allowing mobile players to charge while gaming for added convenience.
Among the advanced features of the Razer Kishi V2 are the microswitch buttons, analog triggers, and even customizable macros. Fully compatible with Nvidia's Geforce Now platform, gamers can expect to experience premium console-level entertainment in a handy portable form. The ability to stream high-quality PC and console games and the amount of available AAA and indie titles make for an extensive library of entertainment. In addition, built-in low-latency features increase responsiveness to ensure better control with less lag between a button press and on-screen action.
