Come September 15th 2020, Xbox gaming will change forever more. No, it’s not Series X that is getting a launch, but Project xCloud will be combining with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to ensure that Xbox gamers can take their games on the go, easier, and more swiftly, then ever before. That is where Razer are coming in, and with their Xbox branded Kishi Universal Mobile Gaming Controller for Android, the opportunity to go gaming on the go will become ever easier.
Thanks to Razer we’ve been able to get hands-on with their new Kishi for Xbox ahead of the official release, and that has enabled us to get an unboxing and first look video out there, showing you what you can expect to see when you purchase the gaming accessory for yourself.
Available right now for $99.99 on the official Razer site, the Kishi for Xbox follows on from the more generic Kishi from a few months back – much like Razer did with the Nari Ultimate headset – bringing in a 14-day free trial subscription to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate service, to allow you the chance to utilise the combination of Game Pass and xCloud on your Android device.
An iOS version should be along at some point in time, but for now the Kishi for Xbox deals with USB-C powered Android phones – in our video you can see it used with a Google Pixel 4XL. That same video will show you the integration of the usual Xbox buttons onto the Kishi – the Xbox Nexus, View and Menu buttons are complemented by the standard face buttons.
On the face of it, this is the perfect device for when Cloud gaming becomes available with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate from September 15th 2020, mostly as you’ll need a compatible controller to play. With the Kishi for Xbox being ultra-portable, highly ergonomic and allowing for low latency gameplay, we can’t think of a better option for you if you wish to take your Xbox games on the go.
We’ll have a full review of the Razer Kishi for Xbox coming your way really soon, but for now join us with a hands-on, unboxing and first look in the video below. Don’t forget, if you like the video we’d love it if you could consider subscribing to the channel, and sticking the little notification bell on. Not only do we have unboxings, but a whole host of gameply trailer and Let’s Play videos too.
Let us know in the comments if you’ll be picking up the Razer Kishi for Xbox, or feel free to ask any questions about the device. We’d love to hear from you and will do our best to respond to all.
