ROCCAT Studios are one of the best companies when it comes to making gaming peripherals. We at TheGameFanatics had the pleasure of reviewing their products earlier this year, and they did not fail to impress us. So when I stumbled across this press release about them bringing back the classic 3-Button Mouse that they’ve decided to call it the ROCCAT Lua Tri-Button Gaming Mouse, I became excited at the thought of using such a mouse again.

ROCCAT Studios have thrown every piece of technology known to man into this mouse so forgive me if this starts to sound like some technological gumbo. There’s so much good stuff going into this mouse I simply could not leave it out.
The Lua features an advanced Pro Optic R2 sensor allowing you to choose between seven dots per inch (DPI) settings, which will allow you to fine tune your gaming experience.
The Lua’s ultra-precise 2D scroll wheel also lets gamers give every wheel command with absolute precision. Every incremental step locks securely into place, so users won’t have to worry above over-scrolling. When weapon 2 is what’s needed, a player won’t accidentally scroll too far and end up with weapon 3 or 4 – security that can mean the difference between life and death in a lightning-paced FPS. Plus, the Lua’s advanced scroll wheel delivers solid tactile feedback, so gamers can actually feel their way to more accurate gaming.
Thanks to its perfectly-balanced, ambidextrous V-shaped design, the Lua delivers supreme comfort to both left- and right-handers. Plus, it features No Sweat side grips that ensure a steady hold even when the action gets hot – as well as a soft touch surface that lets gamers play comfortably even during extended sessions. The Lua also features a large ROCCAT logo illuminated in arctic blue – a stylish boost to gaming atmospherics that also perfectly complements other ROCCAT gear. The logo even has a “breathing” effect, so gamers will always know that their Lua is alive and well and awaiting the next command.
The Lua comes standard with ROCCAT Driver software, which lets users easily customize their mouse buttons. And all Lua tweaking is fun and easy thanks to the program’s gorgeous and simple-to-use interface. And last, but certainly not least, the Lua is built mega-tough and state-of-the-art using only the highest-quality materials and most advanced technology. From its premium electronics – featuring Omron switches and cutting-edge encoder – to its PTFE feet that deliver low-friction gliding, everything on the Lua is built to last and designed to give players a competitive edge.
The ROCCAT Lua will hit shelves internationally sometime between July or August 2012 for a MSRP of €29.99 /38$ USD.
