Razer has announced today that it is preparing to release it's first ever mouse designed for left-handed gamers, with the eventual release planned for March 24th.

The mouse will be based closely on the right-handed version of the Razer Deathadder, which is still our favourite gaming mouse ever, and will retail for $59.99 USD or €59.99 EU, though there's no word on British pricing yet.

The mouse will be available worldwide and will bear the imaginative moniker of 'Razer Deathadder Left Hand Edition'. We see what they did there.

Razer fans will be pleased to note that the mouse will sport all the usual Razer features as standard - incredible sensitivity, sleek black design, etc. It'll have five programmable buttons, a non-slip surface and 3.5G Infra-red sensor that reads up to 3500dpi. We could go into more detail, but it's basically just a mirrored version of the original Deathadder, so check out our Razer Deathadder review for more information.

"Leftie gamers have long been requesting that we develop a gaming grade mouse that is designed exclusively for the left-handed gaming community and we really value the feedback we receive from our fans," said Robert Krakoff, president, Razer USA.

"I am a southpaw myself and feel truly excited to have a mouse that fits perfectly in my left hand. There is really no substitute for gaming with your naturally dominant hand."
