SteelSeries and Na'Vi team up for new Sensei RAW
September 24, 2013 // 9:55 a.m.
Gaming peripherals specialist SteelSeries has announced a partnership with pro-gaming group Team Natus Vincere - better known as Team Na'Vi - on a special edition Sensei RAW gaming mouse.
Based on the company's existing Sensei RAW, the Sensei RAW Na'Vi Edition is a cosmetic upgrade: present and correct are the usual Sensei RAW features including high-resolution laser sensor, long-life switches on all seven buttons, ambidextrous layout, and LED illumination on three separate areas. The mouse also supports the company's SteelSeries Engine software for customisation, including of the aforementioned LEDs which can be configured for varying brightness or pulse rates.
The redesign, then, is external: based on the colours of Team Na'Vi - yellow and black - the mouse now includes an eye-catching paint-splash theme, with matching bright yellow LEDs for the illumination. 'SteelSeries' Sensei RAW is the mouse that most of our players use to practice and win with in tournaments,' claimed Alexander Kokhanovskyy, chief executive and managing director of Team Na'Vi. 'We have been working with SteelSeries as our sponsor for quite some time now and are thrilled to offer our fans a mouse that we not only use, but that has our own modern Na'Vi colours and style.'
As well as the new colour finish to the body, the SteelSeries Sensei RAW Na'Vi Edition also includes a matching two-metre anti-tangle USB cable braided in black and yellow nylon.
'We are a proud sponsor and supporter of Team Na'Vi and look forward to offering their fans and the community the mouse that they have helped to design,' claimed SteelSeries' sponsorship manager Marc Winther Kristensen at the unveiling event, 'from its original hardware features all the way to the new design of their team edition.'
The SteelSeries Sensei RAW Na'Vi Edition is priced at €69.99 on the official SteelSeries European store, a €10 premium over the glossy-black Sensei RAW, while for some reason UK buyers are offered the choice of either mouse for £47.99.
