ASUS has announced the ROG Raikiri Pro, a new, officially licensed controller for Xbox and PC that not only features four programmable rear buttons, tri-mode connectivity (Bluetooth, 2.4 GHz wireless, wired USB-C), and a built-in ESS DAC, but also an OLED display that can be used to show custom images, text, animations, charging status, and more.

  • 3.5 mm audio jack and built-in ESS DAC
  • Easy-to-reach mute button
  • OLED display on top of the controller
  • Two buttons on top of the display for profile switching and more
  • Four rear programmable buttons with a tactile feel

  • Analog triggers with full range of motion and short lock trigger mode
  • Customization of dead zones and more via Armoury Crate software

From an ASUS press release:

The ROG Raikiri Pro provides gamers with extreme levels of customization and personalization. As the first Xbox-licensed tri-mode controller, the tri-mode connectivity offered by the Raikiri Pro allows users to connect via Bluetooth, 2.4 GHz RF, or wired USB-C—making it perfect for gaming on PCs, laptops, or next-gen Xbox consoles. Its built-in OLED display can be used to show custom images, text, or animations, plus it can also show charging status, mic mute, or profile indicators. Users can switch controller profiles easily via two buttons on the Raikiri Pro, even in the middle of a game.

Gamers can also program the four left and right rear buttons for in-game commands such as hotkeys or joystick sensitivity toggles via Armoury Crate software, and can even adjust vibration levels, configure joystick dead zones, and tweak other controller settings. There are physical trigger locks that can be used to set the amount of travel for both left and right triggers to suit the game that’s currently being played. In addition, the Raikiri Pro has a built-in ESS DAC for premium, true-to-life audio.

Complementing the ROG Raikiri Pro is the ROG Raikiri, a lesser version of the controller that features wired USB-C and two, rather than four, rear buttons.

ASUS didn’t share pricing but suggested that its Raikiri controllers should be available soon.
