Did you know that today is International Left Handers Day? It is indeed, which makes it the perfect day to announce gear for lefties, right? Enter Razer, which is doing just that with its incredibly popular Naga series. Yep, it’s launching a new and improved lefty Naga specifically for MMO and online gamers, in spite of the failed Kickstarter for that project a few years ago.
“Planning for a left-handed mouse has been a difficult journey, as it is a project that has drawn large costs at low demand. Adding to that challenge is the insufficient demand that was assessed over the course of multiple efforts, a notable one being the Kickstarter that we ran back in 2018. It is far more complex than just simply flipping the original design around—machines need to be re-tooled (from mold to circuitry), and these mice have to undergo the standard QA checks, testing and certification. Like every product we release, our approach was uncompromising—the packaging and unboxing experience had to be perfect, with all these things executed at no additional cost to the consumer.”
According to Razer’s infodrop today, the mouse will run $99.99 US. Curious about how it functions in practice? One of MOP’s lefties received a press unit just last night, and as soon as he’s had time to actually play around with it, we’ll be posting our impressions, so stay tuned. In the meantime, you get to guess which staffer it is!
