Razer Kishi V2: turn your mobile (Android) into a Nintendo Switch (or almost…)

The Nintendo Switch concept continues to cause turmoil, especially at Raze. This time, the lifestyle brand is offering its concept of mobile controllers, to be fixed/connected to your mobile, running on Android. An iOS version is also planned, for later. Concretely, this little “toy” will still cost you 119.99 euros. Its availability is effective since the launch date was scheduled for June 8, 2022.

The original Razer Kishi opened the doors to a new class of console-grade controllers for the mobile gaming market, and we’re thrilled that the Kishi V2 pushes the boundaries of that experience even further.» said Razer’s Head of Mobile & Console Division, Richard Hashim.Thanks to the advanced technology that we have integrated into Kishi V2, gamers can now enjoy the same look and feel as their favorite games on consoles and PC, wherever they go, without missing a beat.»

Having created content around mobile games for nearly a decade, I can confidently say that the Kishi V2 is the best mobile gamepad I’ve used.» said Patrick ‘Chief Pat’ Carney, CEO and Founder of Tribe Gaming.
