German gaming peripheral designer Roccat Studios is gearing up to debut an "aggressive lineup" of keyboards, mice, and surround sound systems at CES in January, 2012. Ahead of the show, Roccatt today announced the U.S. launch of its gaming device line in hopes of filling a "void" in the crowded U.S. gaming peripherals market and expanding its reach outside of Europe and Asia.
"Pro gamers in other parts of the world already know what our gear can do," says René Korte, Roccat Founder and CEO. "Now’s our chance to share that excitement with American gamers. We’re bringing a bold innovation to the table that sets us far apart from other gaming companies."
Roccat will be going up against the likes of Razer, Logitech, and others who already have a strong presence in the U.S. Two of Roccat's first products to land stateside will be its flagship Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard and the Kone[+] Max Customization Gaming Mouse. These are standalone products but can also work together for to create and initiate advanced macros.
