Razer presents the Anansi, claiming this is world's first MMO gaming keyboard to feature seven ergonomic modifier thumb keys. The keyboard will start shipping in December for 99.99EUR.
Carlsbad, Calif. – October 26, 2010 - Razer, the world’s leading high-end precision gaming
and lifestyle peripherals brand, today announced a new entry for its MMO Gaming product
line, a keyboard that lets you Get Imba - the Razer Anansi. Sharing the same successful
design philosophy as the world’s best-selling MMO Gaming Mouse, the Razer™ Naga, this
keyboard gives gamers an unprecedented slew of MMO functions and features such as
dedicated thumb modifier keys and cutting-edge macro capabilities.
“The Razer Anansi gaming keyboard is the new weapon of choice for MMO gamers,” said
Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, president, Razer USA. “Let’s face it, the regular keyboard that
came with your PC was designed and built for typing, not for MMO gaming. With its
revolutionary seven thumb modifier keys, every key combination that you had before is now
multiplied by seven times. The Razer Anansi allows you to use every spell, ability or custom
macro in your arsenal -- both instantly and in complete comfort.”
Designed and engineered especially for MMO gameplay, the Razer Anansi gives MMO
gamers the power to instantly use up to seven times more commands and abilities over the
current 12 ability keys normally accessible on a standard keyboard. The Razer Anansi also
features over 100 fully programmable keys, on-the-fly macro recording, five additional
gaming keys and the ability to customize the key backlighting from over 16 million colors.
The Razer Anansi is also designed to be used seamlessly with the 12-button mouse keypad on
the Razer Naga and Razer Naga Epic MMO gaming mice, giving gamers a supreme level of
battle control and ergonomic comfort when playing their favorite MMO game.
