Razer announced on Tuesday that it has teamed up with Riot Games to launch a line of Collector's Edition products based on the highly-popular game League of Legends. The only themed gadgets offered thus far is the Razer Naga Hex and the Razer Goliathus mouse mat, which can be purchased here in the States for $89.99 and $19.99 respectively.
"Gear up with the right items and dive into combat fearlessly with the Razer Naga Hex League of Legends Collector’s Edition MOBA and action-RPG gaming mouse," the company said. "In place of the award-winning 12-button thumb grid MMO gamers have come to love with the Razer Naga, the Razer Naga Hex features 6 large thumb buttons optimized specifically for MOBA and action-RPG user interfaces. Spells, abilities, and items from these games can be mapped directly onto the 6 thumb buttons for extraordinary game control."
Razer actually sponsors defending World Champions Taipei Assassins, as well as Counter Logic Gaming, Evil Geniuses, and Korean power-house KTRolster. The company boasts that its Razer Naga Hex has been "validated" with some of the top MOBA pro-gamers in the world thanks to six thumb buttons that are constructed with a mechanical key infrastructure.
In addition to the thumb buttons, the new collector's edition mouse includes a total of 11 programmable buttons, special switches within the buttons for 250 clicks-per-minute action, a 10 million click life cycle, and a 5600 dpi Razer Precision 3.5G laser sensor. Also thrown into the mix is an ergonomic design, a 1000 Hz ultrapolling / 1ms response time, and more.
As for the gaming mouse mat, it's "engineered to exceed the exacting demands of the world’s top professional gamers" featuring a slick cloth weave for unbridged speed, a rubber base for a secure grip on smooth surfaces, and an anti-fraying stitched frame to extend the mat's durability.
"Its slick speed-enhancing surface blends high acceleration with razor-sharp responsiveness to give gamers the fastest, smoothest glide while maintaining lane domination," the company added.
Both League of Legends peripherals can be purchased now in the United States and Europe. They will be available worldwide sometime this month, so keep checking back with the Razer website. Additional information regarding the League of Legends line can be found here.

Why no LoL Deathadder? that is their most selling mouse....Reply
stoogieWhy no LoL Deathadder? that is their most selling mouse....Because this is the mouse designed for DOTA style games with 6 buttons. The Naga also has a normal version with 12 number buttons designed for MMOs. The power of having your major hotkeys at your thumb is immense.Reply
prince_davidBecause this is the mouse designed for DOTA style games with 6 buttons. The Naga also has a normal version with 12 number buttons designed for MMOs. The power of having your major hotkeys at your thumb is immense.the entire LoL game is 6 buttons, do u plan to play 1 handed? if not then u do not need any mouse buttons.Reply
stoogieWhy no LoL Deathadder? that is their most selling mouse....They built and marketed the Naga Hex specifically to target MOBA gamers (LoL, DOTA, etc.). They're going to use their purpose-build hardware to market towards certain groups. They didn't make a Battlefield 3 Naga Epic because they built the Naga Epic to be an MMO mouse, not an FPS mouse (though I used mine for every sort of game while I owned it).Reply
sweet. they should have just bundled the pad with the mouse.Reply
