German gaming peripherals manufacturer, ROCCAT Studios, is set to unveil the ROCCAT Lua Tri-Button Gaming Mouse at the Computex Expo in Taipei and E3 in Los Angeles.

Described as “The Classic 3-Button Mouse: Re-Mastered”, the Lua packs advanced gaming engineering into a sleek and clean ambidextrous form that offers a comfortable fit for every gamer’s hand.

“We took the beloved three-button mouse design and injected it with our innovative gaming engineering – and created a killer tool that gives props to the past while heading boldly into the future,” says René Korte, ROCCAT Founder and CEO.  “The Lua delivers everything gamers need for control, comfort and style – all in a sleek and slim design that offers perfect comfort for every hand.”  

The Lua’s advanced Pro Optic R2 sensor features a choice of seven DPI settings – 250, 500, 1000, 1250, 1500, 1750 and 2000 – so gamers can play with accuracy at the speed that matches their style. It also has a dedicated DPI button that lets players easily change speeds in the heat of battle. Gamers can even program the button to switch only between the DPI settings they use most.

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. 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 ROCCAT Lua will hit shelves internationally July / August 2012 for a MSRP of $29.99.
