Razer Nexus 3.0 Redefines Gaming Exploration
The Razer Nexus app becomes the ultimate gaming advisor for the Razer community, offering a hand-picked selection of games. On-demand video previews and carefully considered categories minimize the time between discovery and gameplay. This enriched catalog is now live for Android and iPhone users.
Updated User Interface
Razer Nexus users will now experience an improved user interface with new options for the Game Background feature, which brings an animated Dynamic Colour background or unique, hand-picked wallpapers for installed games. The update also introduces a Favourites Row for instant access to users’ preferred games and automatically launches the app when Kishi V2 or Kishi V2 Pro is connected to Android.
New Improvements for Groundbreaking Virtual Controller Mode (Android Only)
Virtual Controller Mode allows users to add Kishi V2 compatibility to touchscreen-only games. Nexus 3.0 offers significant improvements, such as support for MOBA games, X/Y camera axis reversal options, camera sensitivity control, unique key mapping for M1/M2 buttons, and removal of the Android Accessibility permission requirement. Razer continues to invest in Virtual Controller Mode for the massive increase in the number of games available to Kishi V2 Android users.
Optimised Gaming Performance (Android Only)
The update demonstrates Razer’s rigorous focus on performance and reliability with reduced power consumption for Kishi V2 controllers, automatic prevention of controller input when the device is asleep, improved app launch button consistency, and superior quality and reliability for captured videos and screenshots. Also, for the first time, users can now choose between HID and XInput controller modes with Kishi V2 Pro.
