The Razer Naga
is going all wireless as Razer announced the Razer Naga Epic
with three interchangeable side panels and many, many buttons. You can see in the pic that there's 12 thumb buttons with a total of 17 buttons on this mouse.
Yeah, it's built for MMO's and strategic games where you would actually use all those buttons in some capacity. The Naga Epic
can go both wired or wireless and comes with a charging base when not in use. It's a pretty intimidating mouse but if you need more than the standard buttons, the Naga Epic
is for you.
It launches for $129.99 in November.
RAZER™ LAUNCHES A WIRELESS VERSION OF THE BEST-SELLING RAZER NAGA™
Razer Naga Epic MMO Gaming Mouse to feature 3 interchangeable side panels for different hand grips – Available worldwide starting November 2010
Carlsbad, Calif. – October 13, 2010 – Razer, the world’s leading high-end precision gaming and lifestyle peripherals brand, today announced the launch of an elite wireless MMO gaming mouse that’s an upgrade from the original award-winning and best-selling Get Imba mouse – the Razer Naga™ Epic. Designed by the highly-acclaimed Razer R&D labs, the Razer Naga Epic epitomizes that fine balance between keyboard and mouse with 17 MMO-optimized buttons, and takes it to a whole new level with three ergonomic interchangeable side panels for optimal fit, the choice to customize the backglow from over 16 million colors, and a dual mode wired/wireless functionality. Gamers can now enjoy a MMO gaming mouse with no strings attached – literally.
“With the Naga Epic, Razer gives MMO gamers around the world more freedom than ever before,” said Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, President, Razer. “We combined the MMO gaming capabilities of the original best-selling Razer Naga and took it to the next level by giving it a true gaming-grade wireless option utilizing the same technology that we developed for the ultra high-end Razer Mamba™.”
The final design of the Razer Naga Epic, from optimal button configuration to its form factor, was achieved through the scientific testing and screening of more than 80 different model iterations by Razer’s ergonomics team.
“Every aspect of the Razer Naga Epic’s design, from its ergonomic form factor to button sizes, placement and angles was rigorously tested both internally in our R&D labs in San Francisco and Singapore, and with seasoned pro-gamers,” said Min-Liang Tan, CEO and Creative Director, Razer. “The Naga Epic is also one of the most comfortable mice we’ve ever designed, with 3 interchangeable side panels that ensure an ideal fit for various hand sizes and grip styles.”
The end result is a mouse that not only provides a personalized level of comfort, but with its dual wired/wireless functionality and unique MMO-optimized multi-button thumb grid also lets gamers fully immerse in their favourite MMO games knowing they have the full range of character abilities at their fingertips.
