Razer announces the immediate availability of the Razer Kishi Universal Mobile Gaming Controller for Android (Xbox), a new accessory enabling seamless gameplay of over 100 Xbox favorites on most smartphones with a USB-C connection, directly from the cloud through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. This Designed for Xbox version of the Razer Kishi is optimized for cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and includes a 14-day free trial subscription. The device can also be used with compatible downloaded Android games. This version adds the convenience of integrated Xbox Nexus, View, and Menu buttons to the feature set of the existing Razer Kishi Universal Gaming Controller for Android product.

While the Android version is cool, we'd like to see when an iPhone version of this will be released for the public. As for this version, cloud gaming will become available with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate beginning September 15 and requires a compatible controller to play. So this is Razer's way of getting one out to the public if you wish to play and don't own one already. You can buy the controller online via their shop or at specified retailers right now for $100, which includes the Game Pass.
