ROCCAT to Unleash Gaming Titans with Launch of New Mega Mice

Lua to claim title as world’s sleekest gaming mouse Hamburg, 27 September 2012 – ROCCAT Studios, the Hamburg-based manufacturer of competition gaming peripherals, is set to expand their high-performance mouse portfolio with the upcoming debut of three new game-changing devices: the ROCCAT™ Kone XTD – Max Customization Gaming Mouse, the ROCCAT™ Kone Pure – Core Performance Gaming Mouse and the ROCCAT™ Lua – Tri-Button Gaming Mouse. ROCCAT has tapped the Kone XTD to be the successor to the legendary Kone[+] gaming mouse, packing the XTD with a hefty increase in the already formidable capabilities of the Kone[+] – while keeping the beloved Kone design completely intact.
