Four days into 2018 and already we hear big surprises in the gaming industry, and nothing is as surprising as finding out that Mad Catz is coming back to the industry nearly a year after going bankrupt. The three products are part of the classic series of Mad Catz, showing that the company will start its revival by going back to its roots, while focusing on the quality of its products instead of the quantity of devices it offers.

Mad Catz was founded in 1989 and went on to become one of the biggest names in gaming hardware production. The newest version of the R.A.T. mouse will be connected to a charging pad, giving you wireless goodness without restraining nonsense like "charging" or 'batteries'. Audio specs pan out to a 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range, 32 ohm impedance and 110 dB sensitivity and Mad Catz has ditched the 3.5 mm audio jack in favor of USB connection. There's a wireless power system involved-a growing trend, it seems, in the mouse world. Three of these are the Strike 4 mechanical keyboard, the Freq 4 gaming headset, and the Rat Air gaming mouse that operates wirelessly through its mousepad. 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.

Some of the company's new management have given an update on the return of Mad Catz, too. The new Mad Catz won't be focusing on game-specific peripherals like guitars or racing wheels, and it definitely won't try to lead the way in manufacturing $US250 ($319) controllers for smartphones. 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.
