Razer has introduced its Razer Junglecat gamepad for iOS devices, offering consumers a combination of gaming-grade control and customizability with phone access.
At 20 mm thin, the Razer Junglecat is designed to mold with the sleek profile of the iPhone and features a slider that reveals or hides the gamepad as desired. Users can leave the Razer Junglecat attached, as all buttons and ports remain available in its pocket-ready compact form.
The Razer Junglecat comes with a downloadable iOS app that lets users remap and define all of its button functions, as well as adjust pressure sensitivity according to preference. Up to 20 personalized profiles can be stored on the app, allowing users to select a corresponding profile for their favorite games.
As an MFi product, the Razer Junglecat is enabled for the latest features of Apple devices. Game Controller Forwarding, for instance, allows the Razer Junglecat and iPhone 5/5s to act as a wireless controller for larger-screen Apple products.
“Game development is cascading into mobile with incredible production values and at a record pace, and the crossover of console gamers playing on their iOS and other mobile devices is growing in stride,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. “The opportunity to design a sleek, high-performance gamepad controller for the iPhone was an exciting proposition that we can’t wait to share with our community and the world.”
