  • Mad Catz returns with a new owner, new ideas and new products

Verrey says Mad Catz's return is thanks to a Chinese holding company that purchased its assets and branding.

Mad Catz declared bankruptcy in 2017, but the video game accessory maker has been revived and will even be present at the upcoming CES 2018. The company, now under new ownership, will introduce three new gaming peripherals in the PC space: a mouse, keyboard and headset. "This is why the new products continue the look and character of the old range so closely, these guys have many years of experience with the Mad Catz product line".

Today, the company announced in a press release that it is "back in the game", and running "under new management, with new ideas, new attitude and most importantly, an entire range of new, high-quality gaming products".

The wireless mouse, the R.A.T. Air, draws power from an included mousepad.

A little over a year ago, hardware manufacturer Mad Catz filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. However, the products will be the start of a more humble version of the company that went bankrupt.

Anyway the mouse sounds pretty interesting as it offers wireless performance via power obtained directly from its gaming surface - i.e. fancy mouse-pad.

There's next to no information about the new keyboard, the Strike 4, other than the facts that it's fully mechanical and has RGB lighting as well as an aluminum frame. The new products are rounded out by the F.R.E.Q. 4, a gaming headset with a blend of retro and gamer styling that boasts 40mm neodymium drivers, metal plating, and an adjustable boom.
