Mad Catz comes back from the dead

Mad Catz has been a permanent fixture in gaming for nearly three decades and we firmly believe its best days lie ahead, ' claims Selena Chang, Mad Catz' incoming director of sales and operations. This new line of products will be the start of a newer, more humble Mad Catz, the company says.

Known for their award-winning range of R.A.T. gaming mice, arcade FightSticks, gaming headsets and much more besides, the new Mad Catz 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. The video game accessories maker will showcase its new products, including the Rat Air wireless mouse, at CES 2018. This is a wireless mouse that will be powered via a "wireless activation gaming surface", or through a USB cable, if required. As part of its reintroduction into the world, Mad Catz is showing off gaming keyboards, mice, and headsets at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas later this month. After liquidation, the company officially close up shop, but apparently, some former employees on the manufacturing side (in China) chose to pick up the pieces and keep on trucking as Mad Catz Global Limited and will be based out of Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Almost a dozen peripherals are set to be shown off at the technology expo - which kicks off on January 9th - and so far the Strike 4 mechanical keyboard, the Freq 4 gaming headset, and a new gaming mouse called the Rat Air have been unveiled. The S.T.R.I.K.E. 4 keyboard is a fully mechanical affair with an aluminum frame and customizable lighting.

However, recent years had not been kind to Mad Catz. Today that resurrection was confirmed with a new video announcing that it is indeed back in business under new ownership, and with new things to show off this weekend. Mad Catz is also making earbuds that are equipped with a boom mic, as well as the dangerous-looking Rat Pro X3 that features a swappable thumb rest, palm rest, pinkie rest, scroll wheel, and more.

The first of the new Mad Catz products will be previewed at CES, which begins on Sunday. All other company and product names may be trademarks of their respective owners.
