Android supports basically every popular Bluetooth gamepad you can buy, including those made for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. But those aren't super portable, and you'll either need a clip or some kind of kickstand to comfortably use them. Razer's Kishi gamepad, on the other hand, folds down to a size that'd comfortably fit in a jacket pocket and clips onto your phone for easy use. If that sounds up your alley, you're in luck: it's on sale for $66 today, $14 off its usual price.
As phones get more powerful, mobile games get more complex: Snake and Brick Breaker have given way to fully-featured PC and console ports, to say nothing of cloud gaming. A lot of these games require a controller to fully enjoy, but mobile gamepads are generally clunky things. Enter Razer's newest controller: the Kishi attaches to phones of many different sizes to turn them into sleek portable consoles. It's really cool — but it's also really expensive, and it doesn't fit some of the most premium devices available today.
Fans of Mojang's incredibly popular game franchise, Minecraft, will soon have a better option for manipulating the Android version of the game. Mobile controller support will finally be added in an update that will be arriving "soon". This news comes via Twitter from Mojang developer Tommaso Checchi.
Fortunately we'll soon raze the entire UI to the ground, so that we'll be able to have proper controller support among other things :)
Mining, building, and fighting off zombies with precision should be much easier with an external controller than with touch screen controls. Other improvements to the game were also alluded to in Tommaso's tweet.
