Yeah, it will be pretty much sitting there unused unless Roccat's ODM came up with some magic.

Also op might want to update this thread title. There is another mouse called the Kiro. It's not roccat's website yet though.

Also video on the new Kova too. Narrated by Snidely Whiplash. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Kiro's MSRP will be $60.
Kova's MSRP will be $70.

Ehhhhhhh that pricing....Especially since the Kiro looks like it's a Lua with replaceable(3D printable) sides.

Yeah, seen the Kiro also about 3-4 hours ago, but I had to watch a soccer game. That russian guy also has the only video about Taito Control on YT apparently (except those giveaway vids).

Looks really nice actually. Hopefully the side buttons on the weak side don't get in the way. I like that they got rid of the giant gear looking scroll wheel (because the encoder was awesome but the old shape was kind of odd). Looking forward to grabbing one.

That Kiro actually looks interesting, not because of the swappable sides, but simply the shape. Will depend on sensor performance if I like it.

Dat Kiro... I like the look of that
post #17 of 244
Being able to go w/o side buttons on ring finger side make the Kiro more appealing to me. The shape seems good but it might be too narrow for me. That was my problem w/ the Savu...it was an excellent little mouse but it just didn't suit my grip + hand size. The fact the Kiro is ambi might help, but the Savu was also way too slippery for me and this mouse seems to use the same surface on the sides.

The Kova looks like it has too much going on with it as a whole. I'd love it if it were that same shape with a simple 3-5 button design. Not to mention it'd inevitably be lighter. Still loving what Roccat is doing atm. Their build quality and scroll wheels have always been top tier in my eyes.

Ideally it would be released next month alongside the Kova...but honestly it wouldn't surprise me if it didn't officially release until next year.

They have learned from the Masters of Spin, but Roccat at least produces substantially, superior quality input devices, compared to Razer.
