During its CES 2023 event, Asus announced a new Xbox controller called the Raikiri Pro. The device features a built-in 1.3-inch OLED display above the Xbox button, which can be used to display text or animated wallpapers (similar to Hyperkin’s tribute to the Duke controller), switch profiles, or check battery, microphone, and Bluetooth pairing status. .
What’s more, the Raikiri Pro has two small buttons on the top of the controller that allow you to switch profiles at any time. There are also trigger locks, four programmable rear buttons, and a circular D-pad. You can even use the Armory Crate PC app to remap buttons and adjust joystick sensitivity, trigger modes, and dead zones.
What sets the Raikiri Pro apart, however, is that it features “tri-mode” connectivity, allowing it to connect via USB-C, 2.4GHz low-latency RF mode, and Bluetooth. However, Asus mentions that the controller Only Xbox Series X and S consoles can be used via wired USB-C.
Other features of Raikiri Pro include built-in ESS DAC Audio, 3.5 mm headphone jack and mute button.
Asus has not yet revealed the price of the controller. However, it is expected to launch in the second quarter of 2023.
