The ROG Raikiri Pro is yet another premium enthusiast-grade controller coming to the market in Q1 2023. What makes the Raikiri Pro stand out from other gamepads is the small built-in OLED panel strip that can add extra flair.

Users can display custom images on the strip, but it's pretty small at 1.3 inches, offers 128x40 resolution, and is limited to just grey. The strip will show various things like battery life and which profile is currently set--gamers can switch between multiple custom profiles--and can even display animated GIFs.

Another unique aspect of the Raikiri Pro is what ASUS calls tri-connectivity; the controller can connect in three different ways including 2.4GHz RF, Bluetooth, or wired via USB-C. The gamepad is compatible with Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC systems, however it will require a USB adapter to connect wirelessly to Xbox consoles.

What I find most interesting about the Raikiri Pro is its take on adaptive trigger designs. ASUS calls these step triggers and there's a button that enables two modes: Full trigger mode, which is full range of motion, and short trigger mode that locks the travel distance of each trigger pull. Gamers can use ASUS Armory Crate dashboard to significantly customize settings including dead zones and more.

The ROG Raikiri Pro is due out sometime in Q1 2023. Pricing has yet to be revealed and for more info including tech specs check below:
