Razer has announced the Razer Kishi V2, a new iteration of the mobile gaming controller that brings console-quality controls and gameplay to Android smartphones. Some of the improvements that mobile gamers will find in the Razer Kishi V2 include all-new tactile microswitch controls, Razer’s way of bringing industry-leading enhancements to handheld gaming hardware, and a new Share button that allows gamers to capture screenshots and record video clips with an easy push. Razer’s Kishi V2 mobile gaming controller is available today from Razer.com and authorized retailers for $99.99, while a version designed for iOS will debut later this year in the fall. The Kishi V2 has been confirmed to support upcoming Samsung and Google Pixel phones.

“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.”

  1. Since when was Razer associated with any kind of quality? They don't know how to bring quality to anything. I highly doubt this mobile controller will match up to the build standards of first-party console game controllers. Razer can't even do that with their actual game controllers.
