On Wednesday in a Hollywood event loft saturated in green light, Razer launched a must have accessory for serious Android gamers: the Razer Raiju Mobile gaming controller.

The new controller adds more functionality and accuracy to gameplay than onscreen controls can provide.

"When playing games on your phone, switching to the Raiju almost feels like cheating," said Michael Weitz Razer product marketing manager. "But it's not cheating. It's just a having a good controller."

The Raiju Mobile isn't just for the new Razer Phone 2, it will work with phones running Android 6.0 via bluetooth low energy or a USB-C plug — there is an adapters for phones with a Micro-USB ports.

PC compatibility will come later. That means when you tire of playing Fortnite on your phone, you can switch to your PC and still use the same controller.

The design of the Raiju Mobile is hybrid of the Razer Wolverine controller and the Raiju PlayStation 4 controller. Keys and thumb-sticks can be customized via an Razer Android app.

The Razer Raiju Mobile wireless gaming controller will be available later this year. Razer hasn't announced pricing.
