Razer Fuses Form and Function with New Keyboards
RAZER LYCOSA MIRROR SPECIAL EDITION™ AND RAZER ARCTOSA™
The Razer Lycosa Mirror Special Edition is a high-gloss mirror finish gaming keyboard while the Razer Arctosa is a stylish stealth black on black gaming keyboard
Carlsbad, Calif. – October 07, 2008 – Razer™, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end precision gaming peripherals, is proud to announce the launch of the Razer Lycosa Mirror Special Edition and the Razer Arctosa, inspired by fusing both form and function into an ultra-sleek gaming keyboard. Both gaming keyboards retain the stylistic appeal and main features of the Razer Lycosa, with subtle differences to appeal to different gamer segments.
The Razer Lycosa Mirror Edition is influenced by gamer feedback on the original Razer Lycosa where some gamers eschewed the rubber keytop for enhanced backlighting with clean lines. Razer’s reply to that culminated in the Razer Lycosa Mirror Edition. A gaming keyboard like its predecessor, the Razer Lycosa, the differences between them are a high-gloss mirror finish on the former with enhanced backlighting for night gaming. The original award winning Razer Lycosa will still be sold at all major electronics retailers while the Razer Lycosa Mirror Edition will be available in December 2008.
The Razer Arctosa is designed to cater to the minimalist gamer looking for the bare essentials in a gaming keyboard. The Razer Arctosa is a basic version of the Razer Lycosa without the backlight but enhanced with fully macro-programmable and media access keys. The Razer Arctosa comes available in the standard silver-printed key letters but also comes with a black on black edition for gamers who have achieved the art of gaming without looking at their keys. The Razer Arctosa silver on black edition and the Razer Arctosa black on black edition will retail in November 2008 at global stores and online.

will appeal to the stylistic crowd, while being powered by the exact
technology which has catapulted the Razer Lycosa into one of Razer’s
core-selling products,” said Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, president of
Razer. He continued “The Razer Arctosa’s black on black version is a
tribute to style personified. It’s a basic gaming keyboard which also
looks awesome with any gaming rig.”
