Razer Kazuyo – A new gaming controller for iPhone

Razer Kazuyo

After seeing something similar released by Logitech, those from Razer seems to work at their own controller for iPhone.

As happens increasingly often lately when it comes to phones, tablets and other portable peripherals, those from @evleaks posted the first picture with the gaming controller for iPhones created by Razer.

The new controller will be called Razer Kazuyo and will be compatible with iPhone 5, iPhone 5S and, with any luck, for iPhone 5C. In practice, it’s a gamepad device that surrounds the iPhone in an intelligent way. I used the “intelligent” term because I find it very interesting how on the right side was left a space in the device for the sound to be directed by the user. In addition, on the left side, the power button functionality is transposed to a controller button.

Opposite side of gaming, we have a directional dPad, four functional buttons and another button that I guess could be used for something like play/pause in a game. Grips from the edges is another interesting element, it helps to use the gadget with a high degree of safety. In addition, if I’m not mistaken, those edges oriented toward the front might be enough to keep Razer Kazuyo standing, so you can use the controller when watching a movie.

We do not have an exact date of release or an estimated price for the Razer Kazuyo creation, but something tells me that it will be available in a few weeks.
