The second-generation Razer Kishi mobile gaming controller for iPhone is now available. The gamepad costs $100, just like the Android version Razer revealed a few months ago. It is available for purchase on Razer’s website.
The mechanism that holds the two sides together and keeps your phone in place has changed the most since the first Kishi. Razer has abandoned the flexible bridge in favor of a more robust sliding version (similar to the setup used by its rival, Backbone).
Kishi V2 is thus compatible with all modern iPhones, including the iPhone 6S and later models, as well as both iPhone SE generations. Furthermore, if you remove the rubber inserts, you may be able to keep your phone’s case on while inserting it.
Razer has also changed the switches, replacing the V1’s membranes with microswitches from its Wolverine V2 console controllers. “This provides advantages in actuation responsiveness, comfort, and tactile feedback,” according to Razer.
Meanwhile, a Share button has been added to the front, as well as two additional programmable buttons next to the triggers.
Users can configure those buttons through the Razer Nexus app. When you hit the Share button, you’ll also need that app to share your gameplay on YouTube or Facebook. Furthermore, you’ll be able to find supported games via the app, which you can access via a dedicated gamepad button.
The Kishi V2 is compatible with cloud gaming devices (such as Xbox Cloud Gaming and Google Stadia), console remote play apps, and PC and iPhone games that support MFi controllers. A Lightning port for passthrough charging is provided, but there is no 3.5mm headphone jack.
