E-sports company ESL Gaming has launched the first ESL controller for mobile phones, designed by RiotPWR, a mobile controller developer of mobile gaming hardware. The partnership with ESL and RiotPWR, brokered by ESL’s licensing agency Tinderbox, officially kicked-off earlier in 2021 with the announcement of the Rotor Riot Controller sponsorship of ESL’s spring season of the ESL Premiership.
“We are excited to launch the ESL Controller and to collaborate with the amazing ESL team for their slate of upcoming tournaments,” says Fraser Townley, president, RiotPWR. “Being able to offer a product that allows pro gamers to compete at the top level is an important aspect of tournament play and we are thrilled to get the best mobile gaming controllers into the hands of players.”
The ESL Controller is compatible with iOS and Android devices and is wired for latency-free gameplay, using RiotPWR’s pass through charging feature, which gives gamers the ability to play uninterrupted, as users can charge their device while playing more than 1,000 controller-compatible mobile games.
The console-sized controller is complete with a full range of buttons and triggers and outfitted with an 8-way DPad and L3R3. There is also an audio DAC and a headphone socket plus a share feature so users can stream live with one press of a button.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with RiotPWR on their new flagship mobile controller,” says David Hiltscher, vice president, fan value management, ESL Gaming. “The release of this product is a major milestone in rolling out our brand licensing program and proves the relevancy of the ESL brand in categories beyond e-sports events and tournaments.”
