Mice aimed at massively-multiplayer online role-playing gamers are all well and good, but what does a League of Legends or Diablo III player need with twelve thumb buttons? That’s why the Razer Naga Hex only has six.
I’d say the newly-announced Razer Naga Hex was built from the ground-up with MOBA and action RPG players in mind, but that wouldn’t technically be correct. What Razer has done with the Naga Hex is taken the twelve button design of the award winning Razer Naga MMO gaming mouse, dropped half of the buttons, and arranged them in a nifty hexagonal pattern for easy access and naming.
Six mechanical buttons should be plenty to keep the League of Legends crowd dominating the field, and three interchangeable thumb rests of differing heights and thicknesses assure that they’ll be comfortable while doing so.
“I love RPG and MOBA games. And I believe that having the right abilities available is the difference between slaying enemies and winning, or dying a miserable death and having your character wiped in hardcore mode,” said Robert ‘RazerGuy’ Krakoff, President, Razer USA in a press release today. “That’s why we designed the Razer Naga Hex — we believe that the six mechanical thumb buttons are going to help gamers stay ahead of the competition with the best ergonomic control.”
He also believes this is a mouse truly worthy of giving Razer $US79.99, which you can do right now via the Naga Hex preorder page.
