LOS ANGELES – Jan. 20, 2016 – Leading gaming accessories manufacturer Nyko today announced the release of the Cygnus Controller for Android. The result of years of experience building controllers for all popular gaming platforms, Cygnus is a full-sized wireless Bluetooth controller redesigned from the ground up to optimize gameplay experiences on a tablet, smartphone, set-top box, or VR headset running Android. The Cygnus Controller is now available at Amazon or the Nyko online store for an MSRP of $24.99.

“As Android platforms become more powerful and the demand for them continues to grow, we wanted to create a streamlined controller that would suit the needs of the mass market,” said Chris Arbogast, Nyko’s head of sales and marketing. “Cygnus provides a comfortable, performance-minded design and console-like feel at an affordable price for any device running Android, particularly set-top boxes and VR headsets.”

Featuring dual analog sticks, a d-pad, four face buttons, and left/right dual shoulder/trigger buttons, Cygnus has the necessary tools to make Android gaming feel as smooth and comfortable as playing on any traditional game console.
