Razer has today released an Xbox Game Pass version of its Razer Kishi gaming controller for Android. This new edition sports a slightly altered look and comes bundled with a 14-day free trial of Game Pass.
The primary difference between the standard Kishi and the Game Pass Kishi is the look of the buttons. Basically, the Game Pass Kishi comes with Xbox Nexus, View, and Menu buttons. Those buttons are still there on a standard Kishi, mind; they just don’t have the Xbox symbols on them.
Microsoft’s game streaming platform, xCloud, is still currently in beta, though it’s expected to launch widely starting September 15th. It’ll be bundled as a freebie with your monthly Game Pass Ultimate subscription.
If you’re feeling impatient, you could always try your luck and apply to be an early tester for xCloud and Xbox’s console-to-mobile streaming service.
The Razer Kishi is a premium piece of kit with a premium price tag and only a few small drawbacks. The USB-C connection means minimal latency, it feels mostly great to use, and I plan to adopt it as my primary xCloud controller. I should have a full review live in the next week.
If you want to grab yourself a Kishi for Android, you can do so now over on Razer’s official site. The Razer Kishi Game Pass edition for Android will set you back $99.99, while the standard model goes for $79.99. The Razer Kishi for iOS is due to arrive later this year.
