When it comes to gaming gear and peripherals, one of the sure-fire ways to get gamers excited about (spending money on) your products is by releasing limited editions that feature designs and characters from well-loved pop-culture franchises. As one of the leading gaming peripheral brands, Razer knows this very well as it allows gamers to customise some of their products with characters and motifs from franchises such as Genshin Impact, Hello Kitty and Friends, and Sonic the Hedgehog.
Earlier today, Razer announced that it is bringing back its Pokémon Collection to the Asia-Pacific market and will undoubtedly see fans snatch up these products faster than you can say “Gotta catch ’em all.” This time around, the Pokémon Collection will consist the BlackWidow V3 Tenkeyless keyboard and the medium- and XXL-sized Gigantus V2 mouse mats.
For gamers who want an eye-catching centrepiece on their desk, the Pokémon Edition of the BlackWidow V3 Tenkeyless will be the perfect choice as it features a Pokéball motif on the surface and unique Pokéball keycaps throughout. It even has Pikachu and Eevee flanking the arrow keys. However, other than the Pokémon-inspired design, the keyboard is essentially unchanged, it uses the Razer Green Mechanical switches and is powered by Razer Chrome RGB.
As for the Razer Gigantus V2 mouse mats, besides the difference in size, the medium variant of the mouse mat will prominently display Pikachu and Eevee while the XXL variant features Pikachu, Eevee and all its “eeveelutions.” Other than that, the mouse mats have the same texture micro-weave cloth surface, thick, high-density rubber foam and anti-slip rubber base that provides effortless gliding and comfort.
