Razer announced the Naga Epic, a wireless edition of the company's Naga MMO mouse. This version offers wired/wireless dual mode capability and features a 16 million color backlight illumination. The mouse will start shipping in November for 129.99EUR.
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.
17 Fully-programmable MMO-optimized buttons (including 12 button thumb grid)
