Bring your desktop experience to consoles with the KeyMander 2

Kaliber Gaming, a gaming division of IOGEAR, today unveiled their KeyMander 2. This release is the next generation of the company’s hot-selling control adapter for gaming consoles. This new version will allow keyboard and mouse controls like the original but also controller support for PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Switch. It is available now in the U.S. and Canada and will release worldwide Q2 2020.

Equipped with a long list of capabilities, the KeyMander2 lets gamers take back control and command gameplay with advanced keyboard and mouse support that can be fine-tuned to match user preferences — providing maximum advantage for gamers that prefer a desktop-style gaming experience. KeyMander 2 adds cross-console controller support which allows sharing controllers between Nintendo Switch, Sony® PlayStation 4 and Microsoft® Xbox One platforms (i.e.: users can use Xbox One controllers on a PS4, etc.).

KeyMander 2 takes the ability to precision tune keyboard and mouse performance, part of what made the original KeyMander so popular, to new levels via a mobile app for iOS and Android. The app empowers gamers with the ability to create unique gaming profiles featuring custom key mapping, mouse sensitivity, macro functions and more, all wirelessly and on the fly using a smartphone or tablet. On top of that, users can join a community of KeyMander enthusiasts on the KeyMander Forum, where they can share and download game profiles, share tips and tricks, and get the latest information about the KeyMander.

Other key features of KeyMander 2 include:

● Push-to-talk headset mode, perfect for headsets without a microphone mute switch

● Fully upgradable firmware, allowing KeyMander 2 to support the latest titles and get even better with time

● Bluetooth programming, enabling wireless on-the-fly adjustments from mobile devices

“When it comes to customizing the in-game experience for console gamers, KeyMander opens up a world of possibilities,” Joseph Zheng, Director of Product Management, IOGEAR. “With KeyMander2 we’ve made it so that users can further precision tune their gameplay to match their tastes. Beyond that, we’ve made it easier than ever to create, download and edit game profiles with the KeyMander mobile app, which also features cloud storage to create a backup your game profiles.”

This is exciting for those looking to continue to optimize their experience on consoles. Stay tuned to Gaming Trend for all your gaming news.
