Smartphone gaming has reached all new heights in recent years. ESports professional leagues around the world are recognizing the platform not only as a casual space but a place where the world’s best can also showcase their talents. The SEA Games, in which the Philippines achieved great success, even featured gamers on these devices. With years of expertise in their arsenal, the Razer Kishi V2 has been engineered to give gamers an ergonomic advantage on the smartphone. What exactly does this model offer by itself and over the original?
The Razer Kishi V2 features all-new tactile microswitch controls which greatly elevate the feel of true gaming on the mobile platform. A Share button is placed on the controller to give gamers easy access to options that will allow them to record gameplay clips to upload for clout on social media. It is a useful tool not only for content creators but also for personal purposes. Specialized dual-multifunction buttons diversify options for in-game shortcuts, providing an experience that users can alter based on their own preferences.
Its overall structural design has been redone as well. A simplified bridge increases compatibility with a greater array of smartphone sizes and form factors. Razer has conducted research on human habits and developed the Razer Kishi V2 to be as ergonomic as possible. Their marketing team has even specified that Samsung and Google Pixel devices are sure to work well with the controller.
Connection is done either via USB-C or wirelessly. Adding to the software experience is the installable Razer Nexus application, giving quick access to installed games, streaming capabilities, compatibility, and controller settings.
Razer’s Head of Mobile & Console Division, Richard Hashim, had this to say: “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. With the cutting-edge technology that we’ve packed into Razer 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.”
