Razer is putting a new spin on an old classic with the re-release of the Naga MMO gaming mouse. The best-selling MMO pointer of all time has been tweaked in a number of different categories to create a product that’s even better than the original according to the company.
The Naga’s iconic 12-button thumb grid is now outfitted with mechanical switches for increased tactility, speed and actuation assurance. Furthermore, each button on the thumb grid is now more pronounced than previous models to allow for improved blind-finding, we’re told.
Elsewhere, the Naga’s ergonomic form factor has been reworked with a broader shape to accommodate a wider range of hand sizes. Razer said the fourth and fifth finger rest now has a gentler down slope to promote better grip and reduce fatigue during extended gaming sessions. If that weren’t enough, Razer has also added a clickable scroll wheel that clicks in and out as well as left to right for even more customizable buttons.
On the software front, Razer is including a copy of their in-game MMO configuration software with each unit. This software allows gamers to set up key bindings, macros and other preferences without having to exit their favorite game.
Left-handed gamers aren’t being left in the cold, either, as Razer has launched a left-handed edition as well. The company said they are doing this at an expected fiscal loss as a result of popular community demand.
The Razer Naga 2014 Edition is available as of writing for $79.99 via Razer’s website or at your favorite gaming retailer.
