The mobile gaming sector of the video game industry has become a juggernaut, especially thanks to games like Fortnite Mobile and PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG). While mobile games get by with touchscreen, many times players are looking for a more precision feel to their mobile games. This is where mobile game controllers fit in. Rotor Riot has an answer with their wired controller.
The Rotor Riot mobile controller is the world’s first wired controller that supports L3/R3 fire buttons on the joysticks and is approved by Apple for iOS devices. The controller is compatible with all iOS devices with a Lightning connection running iOS 7 or greater. One issue many mobile gaming controllers have is not completely be able to translate the button layout for games ported from consoles to mobile. This is where having L3/R3 on MFI controllers becomes so important. Now, both the console game and the mobile game will be exactly the same!
Rotor Riot also has a USB-C connection type for devices such as Android.
“Mobile gamers will spend over $70 Billion on mobile video games. They deserve access to the right tools for the job. They want an affordable controller without the latency of a Bluetooth connection. Because Rotor Riot’s roots are in high performance mini quads, we wanted to make sure our game controller was compatible with the 1000s of games and drone apps available for iOS devices.” – Chad Kapper, CEO of Rotor Riot
“We are looking to bridge the gap between the mainstream mobile gaming world and the niche of FPV freestyle. We believe this can be done by providing value to the existing mobile game/drone market first. Soon we will be releasing additional games and simulators geared towards racing and freestyle.” – Chad Kapper, CEO of Rotor Riot
