Still curious if there's a market for mice with a dozen or more buttons on the side? Wonder no more. Just over a year after Razer caused every MMO addict in existence to salivate uncontrollably with the Naga comes this: a new duo of special edition Naga creations. For all intents and purposes, the Naga Maelstrom and Naga Molten are identical to the original in terms of functionality, but there's a decent chance you'll want to lift your palm from the surface of these a lot more frequently. Both units are graced with special edition lids, and somehow still feature 17 "MMO-optimized" buttons while adding a touch of glow underneath. Both models are slated to ship worldwide next month, with pricing set for $79.99 / €79.99 (the same as the original, if you just have to know). Per usual, the full presser is after the break.

Tuesday, 05 October 2010

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


RAZER™ RELEASES SPECIAL EDITIONS OF THE WORLD'S
BEST-SELLING MMO GAMING MOUSE

Razer Naga™ Maelstrom and Molten™ Special Edition MMO Gaming Mice Available Worldwide from November 2010

Carlsbad, Calif. – October 5, 2010 – Razer, the world's leading manufacturer of high-end precision gaming and lifestyle peripherals, today announced the launch of a new suite of Razer Naga™ Special Edition gaming mice – the Razer Naga Maelstrom Special Edition and the Razer Naga Molten Special Edition.

"After the phenomenal response we received for the Razer Naga, we've decided to create two collectible versions to offer our fans even more ways to dominate their game," said Robert "Razer Guy" Krakoff, president, Razer USA. "We took the same functionality of full button remapping and macro capabilities of the original Razer Naga and rejuvenated the aesthetic design for a more immersive MMO gaming experience."

Upon its release, the original Razer Naga generated overwhelmingly positive reviews at Amazon.com and NewEgg.com like, "Finally, the mouse I've been waiting for! 5/5" and "If you play WoW, get this mouse. 5/5." With almost all the users of the Razer Naga (based on online end user feedback at major online retailers) providing a positive review, the Razer Naga is the defining product that created the category of MMO gaming peripherals.

Razer is going one step further with the announcement of the Maelstrom Special Edition, inviting MMO gamers to submerge into the heart of the vortex. Featuring the same 17 MMO-optimized buttons with unprecedented macro functionality, this mouse has a whirlpool of entrancing blue light emanating from its swirling core.

In addition to the Maelstrom version, Razer also introduces the Molten Special Edition which glows a wicked and fiery red hue. Along with the lava-red fissures cutting a jagged path across the mouse, the MMO-optimized buttons glow a blazing crimson color. No matter what version you choose, with a Razer Naga SE you will Get Imba!
