Another iOS 7 gaming controller has debuted. Engadget reports that The Mad Catz C.T.R.L.i gaming controller has been revealed at the Mobile World Congress 2014. The controller is similar to the SteelSeries Stratus controller released last month, in that it connects to any iOS 7 device via Bluetooth, and not the Lightning port. It also includes a spring-loaded mount for use with the iPhone 5/5s/5c.
The controller itself is based on Mad Catz’s popular MLG Pro Circuit Controller for the Xbox 360, and features console-style controls such as a directional pad, two analog sticks, four face buttons, shoulder bumpers, and left and right triggers. The C.T.R.L.i’s Bluetooth capabilities also allows connectivity for up to four controllers.
Currently, multiple games offer iOS 7 controller support, these titles include Rayman Fiesta Run, Dead Trigger 2, and Asphalt 8: Airborne. Other developers are expected to begin including iOS controller support in their games, now that controllers are hitting the market in increasing numbers.
The Mad Catz C.T.R.L.i controller will hit the shelves at an $80 retail price point in April, and will be available in black, white, red, blue, and orange.
