For the launch of Microsoft’s xCloud gaming streaming service, Razer has prepared a new Kishi game controller in the style previously available for the Nintendo Switch game console, but with the Xbox branding.
The new version of the Razer Kishi for xCloud has the same design as the previous version for the Nintendo Switch. But the new product has a dedicated Xbox button located on the left half of the controller at the bottom. Another difference can be seen in the color scheme of the ABXY buttons, which now matches the style of Microsoft. The controller can be used with Android smartphones that are equipped with a USB-C port (and it is located in the center of the case) and whose dimensions do not exceed 78.1 × 163.7 × 8.8 mm.
Although it’s more than a month away from the launch of the xCloud service, the new Razer Kishi game controller is already on sale for $ 99.99. Customers will also get a 14-day trial access to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, which will allow them to try out the new service once it launches. Interestingly, the original non-Xbox Kishi controller can also work with the xCloud service, but costs $ 20 less. Yes, it doesn’t include 14-day trial access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, but it costs $ 15 per month. So, if you don’t get attached to the Xbox branding, the previous version of the Razer Kishi controller looks like a preferred purchase for game lovers.
