Razer Launches Kishi V2 Pro Xbox Version with Many Added Features

The new Kishi V2 Pro is an improved version of Razer’s popular line of mobile gaming controllers. Its “extendable bridge” form factor means it should work with most smartphones. The manufacturer claims it makes mobile gaming more “hardcore” than ever before thanks to Hypersense Haptics and a new cloud-oriented design. It also has a 3.5mm jack so you can “stay immersed” in your streaming session.

Razer has launched the Xbox version of its Razer Kishi V2 Pro as an exclusive variant. The new Xbox controller comes in a white colour scheme and supports a plethora of extra features, such as a dedicated Xbox button that can be used to access Game Pass, Cloud Gaming, and remote play. We have detailed the device features below.

The Razer Kishi V2 Pro(Xbox Special Edition) has a design similar to that of Xbox Controllers, it achieves this by including left and right thumbsticks, one above the D-pad and the other below the X, Y, and B buttons. These primary controls are surrounded by a number of secondary buttons, one of which, in the Xbox “optimised” version, carries the Xbox logo.

A single press of the Xbox Edition‘s namesake button should launch the Game Pass user interface on the console (via the direct USB type-C connector present on both iterations of the V2 Pro) and provide access to Xbox remote play and the platform’s Cloud Gaming portal (though the latter is still in beta and requires an Ultimate-tier membership in any case).

Now Available Internationally

The Razer Kishi V2 Pro, originally released in North America as part of the Edge bundle, is now available internationally. Razer has announced that the V2 Pro would be released independently in every market outside of North America with the exception of China.

This development follows the recent release of a significant update to the Nexus software by Razer. If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s essentially a game launcher that also serves as a recommendation engine. Razer has improved this section of the app with the newest release, compiling well-curated lists of games across multiple categories. You can also watch trailers to get a feel for the game and decide if it’s something you’d enjoy playing.

In addition to serving as a launcher and helping you find new games, Nexus also has a function called Virtual Controller Mode. As a result, you may play a wider variety of games with a controller by assigning actions from your Razer Kishi V2 to on-screen inputs in Android games that were developed specifically for the platform.
