Mad Catz announced its resurrection with a new video confirming that it's "back in the game" under new ownership, and it has promised to show off several fresh products this weekend at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show. These investors were people who worked at Mad Catz' China-based factories over the years, so it seems that there was a lot of passion to keep things going.

Mad Catz have today unveiled that they're back after becoming bankrupt in April 2017, and they've got their claws out with new management and new products as we enter 2018.

At CES next week, Mad Catz will be showing off a couple of key new peripherals for 2018.

Known for their award-winning range of R.A.T. gaming mice, arcade FightSticks, gaming headsets and much more besides, the new Mad Catz will focus first on quality, committed to producing innovative gaming products, designed and engineered in-house to stand out amongst the competition and deliver superlative performance for gamers of all abilities.

For reference, Apple iPhone X (A11 Bionic processor) supports maximum of 120 fps slow motion recording in full-HD resolution. Samsung did not detail in its January 4 press release which regions will get the new Exynos chips in future Samsung devices.

Most gamers remember Mad Catz as the company behind numerous...cheaper versions for most console controllers, so it's likely that company will have a bit of work ahead of them as they strive to re-market themselves as a seller of high-quality goods.

The company's return is of course heralded by a new line of gear. If you want to use your own surface, you can just plug in a USB cable and use it as a wired mouse. Three of these are the Strike 4 mechanical keyboard, the Freq 4 gaming headset, and the Rat Air gaming mouse that operates wirelessly through its mousepad. "We can't wait to unveil a little more at CES 2018 and in the months to come".

Mad Catz Global Limited, the legendary brand, leading innovation in gaming hardware for nearly three decades, announced a surprise return to the worldwide gaming scene. The company was forced to lay off many of its employees that year and then shuttered altogether one year later. We are talking about Mad Catz, which before its surprise departure from the market had been focusing on gaming peripherals for almost three decades.
