Mad Catz Roars Back To Life After Bankruptcy

The 30th anniversary of United States gaming hardware veteran Mad Catz was nearly visible on the horizon when the first signs of trouble began to emerge in 2016.

Mad Catz was always a highly respected name in gaming accessories, not least for its excellent arcade fighting stick controllers and R.A.T. gaming mice, but thanks to cash problems and mismanagement it all went south for the company nearly a year ago. All of these new devices (and possibly more) will be shown off at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. The new company will reportedly more closely mirror the late Mad Catz outside of the console and licensed peripheral sectors, putting out reasonable, high-end wares with an initial focus on the PC market.

To celebrate their reanimation, Mad Catz have launched another teaser video, expanding on the first teaser with a few more glimpses of the products due to arrive.

The company will be known as Mad Catz Global Limited. 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.

Some of the company's new management have given an update on the return of Mad Catz, too. As a result, for this year's CES, the company is going back to basics by resurrecting its classic series including R.A.T gaming mice, S.T.R.I.K.E keyboards and F.R.E.Q headsets. A USB cable will be included for those who prefer wired mice, you can also use the cable to charge the mouse if you would rather use your own mouse mat.

KitGuru Says: It was a sad day when Mad Catz filed for bankruptcy but it looks like the peripheral maker has found its second life.

Speaking about the return, Mad Catz' Selena Chang explained that the company firmly believes that its "best days lie ahead".
