Following the launch of the Razer Kishi for Android phones a few months ago, Razer this week launched a version of its mobile controller for the iPhone.
The Razer Kishi for iPhone is now available from Razer and Apple's online stores and will be available at select Apple retail stores starting September 22. It's priced at $99.99, is MFi-certified, and is compatible with the iPhone 6 Plus and later models.
To use the Razer Kishi, you pull apart the two controller halves and place the iPhone in the middle. The Kishi connects to the iPhone's Lightning port for low-latency controls. And the Lightning pass-through charging port on the bottom of the right side of the Kishi means that if your phone's battery starts to run down, you can just plug the controller in and keep gaming.
The button layout on the Razer Kishi is similar to what you'd find on an Xbox or PlayStation controller. There are two triggers and two bumpers, four face buttons, a d-pad, and two clickable thumbsticks.
There are a ton of games on the iPhone, including some old-school console classics, and Apple Arcade offers access to more than 120 titles with a monthly subscription. The Razer Kishi for iPhone looks like it could be a great accessory if you're serious about gaming on your iPhone, giving you physical controls so that you don't have to cover the touchscreen with your fingers and connecting directly to the iPhone to avoid Bluetooth latency.
