Razer has officially announced the release of the new Panthera Evo game controller, developed with the support of the Fighting Game Community (FGC). The accessory is made in the style of arcade stick and sharpened under control in fighting games, for which traditional game-pads, and especially the keyboards, are not so convenient.
The Razer Panthera Evo is the second generation of the Razer Panthera. The improved stick was rigorously tested and tuned for competitive use by some of the world’s best esports athletes and community minds, including Team Razer’s Xian Ho Kun and Kenny Omega.
“Fans have been excited for the Razer Panthera Evo since its debut in prototype form at Evo earlier this year and now the wait is finally over,” said Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, and CEO. “This next-generation arcade stick focuses on precision, consistency and best-in-class performance that resonates with professional fighting game athletes and enthusiasts alike.”
The development of the controller was carried out in close cooperation with experienced players, champions, and leaders of the FGC. This allowed the Razer Panthera Evo to be adapted to the needs of world-class fighters.
The Razer Panthera Evo Fightstick is equipped with a Razer mechanical switch with a 30 million-press resource. The case is made in an updated design and equipped with a headphone jack. At the request of the community, the art on the front panel of the controller can be manually replaced to give the controller a personal style.
