Mad Catz Returns With New Mouse, Headset and More

Mad Catz returns with a new owner, new ideas and new products Mad Catz Returns Following Bankruptcy
Glenn Montgomery | 06 January, 2018, 04:00

Mad Catz' return can be seen more as a revolution than a revival, if you're a longtime fan.

"Thankfully this is not a case of a nameless corporation buying the assets and running the brand down", Mad Catz' PR Alex Verrey - former global PR director of the company, though now independent - told me.

After a year in the wilderness, following years of struggles and a bankruptcy filing, gaming peripheral maker Mad Catz is doing a Lazarus.

The new Mad Catz website, meanwhile, lists the details for all its upcoming products, which includes eight mice, two keyboards, two headsets, and five mousepads.

Mad Catz will be back and ready to go at CES 2017 which is taking place on January 9th in Las Vegas, Nevada until January 12th.

Mad Catz has come back from what many believed to be game over for the peripheral maker.

The R.A.T. AIR is a new model of the notable and fully-adjustable gaming mouse, which now features a wireless power system. A teaser video for the resurrection of Mad Catz can be seen below.

Though there is no mention of fightsticks or gamepads in that lineup, it appears that Mad Catz is generally continuing where it left off, promising that it "will focus first on quality, committed to producing innovative gaming products, designed and engineered in-house to stand out amongst the competition and deliver superlative performance for gamers of all abilities".

Anyway the mouse sounds pretty interesting as it offers wireless performance via power obtained directly from its gaming surface - i.e. fancy mouse-pad. The RAT Air also comes with a USB cable so you can connect the mouse to the computer instead. We'll be looking forward to checking out the new Mad Catz gear over the course of the year!

They'll also be showing off the S.T.R.I.K.E.4 gaming keyboard and the F.R.E.Q.4 gaming headset.

They still look a little like Christian Bale's "tumbler" Batmobile, built out of lego and laser pens, then. Mad Catz has been a permanent fixture in gaming for nearly three decades and we firmly believe it's best days lie ahead.
