Razer Game controller for Android is now available for $ 80
Razer Kishi was largely buried in the flood of Razer announcements during CES (it was very difficult to compete with 5G routers and a large race simulator). It’s not the first staple of smartphone games – heck, it’s not even the first to adopt this particular approach. But a company such as Razer that lends itself to a triple-digitized snake brand in the category can certainly go the way of securing other devices, following the release of portable handles from the company.
The add-on is starting to ship today with Android authorities, priced at $ 80 a pop. Also, not the cheapest product in the category, but the Razer products are generally well regarded in their operation, and the Kitchen is being met with strong reviews so far.
It has been a draw compared to Nintendo’s Joy-Cons for the switch, in part because of the placement of previous analog buttons and icons. There is a D-pad on the left, four buttons on the top, two analog buttons and a connector for the big buttons. Kishos connect directly to the USB-C port, to receive lower gameplay latency than Bluetooth comparisons. Appropriately, it also works with the Stadia service, which could be a good bundle of Google cloud game services, which has so far failed to heat up the world.
There’s an iPhone version on the way, too. That will come sometime in the summer.
