The Razer Kishi is now available in the UK at the lowest price in history, with hefty discounts over Amazon Prime Day. This mobile gamepad was a favorite last year and even scored ours Award for best Xbox accessory in 2020. The Nintendo Switch-style controls are ideal for all mobile games, including the Xbox Cloud Gaming service, which is now included Xbox Game Pass subscriptions.
Amazon Prime Day has reduced two versions of the Razer Kishi, both designed for Android smartphones. The cheapest £ 43 version mirrors the Xbox controller layout, including the same asymmetrical twin stick design, ABXY buttons, and other standard inputs. There’s also a special branded Xbox version developed in partnership with Microsoft, priced at £ 49, suitable for those who want to see the full Xbox experience on their phone.
Mobile gaming can’t be much better than the Razer Kishi, which wraps around your smartphone like a Nintendo Switch with two Joy Con-like controls. It has the classic button layout, staggered thumbsticks, rear triggers, and bumpers that are similar to the Xbox controller. It has a design that any Xbox user will be instantly familiar with, and its flexible design makes it easy to connect to almost any typical smartphone. We named it best controller for Xbox cloud gaming and we think you would agree with me.
The Kishi proves to be super comfortable for extended gaming sessions, which is not always guaranteed with a smartphone, with a robust design that lasts a long time. It’s also surprisingly portable, weighing just 163 grams and folds up when not in use. The Android version only requires a USB-C connection, the standard for modern telephones, although the iPhone version is currently not discounted. Best of all, with a direct connection to your phone, no charging is required.
Starting at just £ 43 this Amazon Prime Day, the Razer Kishi is a great investment in the future of Xbox as on-demand cloud gaming finally becomes a reality. You can play your games away from the console with low latency anywhere with a stable internet connection.
