Remember when Razer announced a sleek sliding gamepad for your iPhone called the Junglecat? I bet not, considering how the company axed that idea without ever releasing it to the world. But today, it’s launching a $100 mobile gamepad called the Junglecat yet again — this time reincarnated as a set of two Nintendo Joy-Con-like gamepads that snap onto either side of your handset.

The catch is you’ll need to stick your phone in a specific case to make that trick work, and Razer only has cases for four phones to start: the Razer Phone 2, Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus in the US, or swapping out the Note 9 for a Huawei P30 Pro case in the rest of the world.

  Razer built an RGB microphone that displays live stream emotes If you're a livestreamer determined to stand out from the pack with flashy effects, Razer has your back. It's introducing a Seiren Emote microphone whose 8x8 LED screen displays (what else?) emotes in sync with Twitch and Mixer stream events, including through common tools like Streamlabs and XSplit. You can display a custom channel emote when someone subscribes, a puking rainbow emote when someone thanks you in chat, or seemingly anything in between. It'll even sync with Chroma-compatible gear, so your mic can go berserk alongside your Hue lights and headphones if you're so inclined.And yes, Razer paid at least some attention to the actual microphone.

Otherwise, you’ll be connecting the two pads together with a little bridging bar and using them at a distance from your phone or PC, like this:

Will it come to other phones? “We will continue to evaluate the needs of interested customers and address them accordingly,” a Razer rep tells The Verge, explaining that the company prioritized phones with large displays and gaming-oriented specs that sold in high volumes for this release.

Also, while Razer is promising the “instantaneous response with a reliable, low latency connection to your smartphone,” you should probably know that the connection Razer’s talking about is standard Bluetooth Low Energy. Unlike Nintendo’s Joy-Cons and a handful of other third-party controllers, there’s no physical connection to your handset, and it looks like you may need to charge them individually over USB-C.

P.S. If you think the industrial design looks a lot like a Gamevice, you’re not alone. I thought so, too, which reminded me to go find out what happened back when Gamevice sued Nintendo over the design of its Joy-Cons. Turns out that case was voluntarily dismissed. So now you know.

Razer also announced its first truly wireless earbuds today.
