Razer has updated its Razer Nexus app for iPhone and Android mobile gaming with Nexus 3.0, which includes new features for Android along with an upgraded experience for iPhone. As the main game launcher for Razer Edge & Kishi V2, the Razer Nexus 3.0 update is available to users free of charge.
The Razer Nexus app presents a curated selection of games for the Razer community. Optional video previews and carefully considered categories minimize the time between discovery and gameplay, says the company. This enriched catalog is now live for Android and iPhone users.
The new user interface includes new options for either an animated dynamic colour background or a game background option that brings unique, handpicked wallpapers for installed games. The update also introduces a favourites row for instant access to preferred game. On Android, it will automatically launch the app when a Kishi V2 or Kishi V2 Pro is connected.
For Android users, Virtual Controller Mode allows you to add Kishi V2 compatibility to touchscreen-only games. Nexus 3.0 adds support for MOBA games, options to invert the X/Y camera axis, camera sensitivity control, unique keymapping for M1/M2 buttons, and the removal of the Android Accessibility permission requirement.
The update also features reduced power consumption for Kishi V2 controllers, automatic prevention of controller input when the device is asleep, improved app launch button reliability, and better quality and reliability for captured videos and screenshots. In a first, you can now choose between HID and XInput controller modes with the Kishi V2 Pro.
“As the mobile gaming landscape evolves at an extraordinary rate, we recognized a need for a platform that keeps pace with this rapid progression,” says Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Hardware Business Unit. ” With Nexus 3.0, gamers can discover new realms and launch favourite games, all with no subscription fees required. It’s more than an app; it’s our commitment to delivering unbridled gaming experiences to the palm of your hand.”
Razer Nexus 3.0 is available via the Google Play Store and iOS App Store.
