Corsair’s SCUF Gaming has unveiled its latest controller for mobile gaming, SCUF Nomad. 

According to Jake Tenorio, director of Product Marketing at SCUF Gaming, the Made for iPhone controllers contoured grips and full-size triggers are inspired by SCUF’s paddle controllers. Nomad’s full-sized thumbsticks offer precise accuracy and control, while anti-drift Hall effect components offer sustained performance., he adds.

The placement of the thumbsticks is complemented by the placement of Nomad’s two rear paddles, a patented SCUF innovation that provides extra speed and control while helping alleviate hand strain. Tenorio says this design allows gamers to use the thumbsticks and rear paddles simultaneously, just like the pros, a big step forward for what SCUF believes is the right way to play on all platforms.

SCUF Nomad is accompanied by a free iOS companion app that doesn’t require a paid subscription. The app allows users to easily access and play games such as CoD: Mobile, Roblox, or NBA 2K. Quickly launch games from the App Store, Cloud Streaming services, and Remote Play apps that allow you to play games directly from your console or PC. 

You can create controller profiles for your Nomad to adjust to trigger sensitivity, thumbstick responsiveness, and the remapping of any button. You can assign profiles to games in your library and easily share them with friends. The SCUF app also streamlines the process of capturing and sharing gameplay highlights on mobile, enabling players to showcase their skills with ease, Tenorio says.

The SCUF Nomad is available to preorder online starting at US$99.99 and in select retailers this summer. Nomad is compatible with iOS 16+ and will be launching with only one color, back, with more customization and colors to come.
