Mad Catz' return can be seen more as a revolution than a revival, if you're a longtime fan. After liquidation, the company officially close up shop, but apparently, some former employees on the manufacturing side (in China) made a decision to pick up the pieces and keep on trucking as Mad Catz Global Limited and will be based out of Kowloon, Hong Kong.

"We couldn't be more excited than to begin 2018 by announcing the return of Mad Catz to the global gaming arena".

Although the full list of products has not been revealed, Mad Catz confirmed that it would be previewing its first line of gaming peripherals at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Specifically the company will be showing off a new R.A.T.Air, an all-new version of their fully-adjustable wireless gaming mouse with a brand new wireless power system. A filing for voluntary bankruptcy followed later that month, and that appeared to be the end of the Mad Catz story. Word is that this new Mad Catz will play it a lot safer, so don't expect EB Games to be flooded with Nintendo Switch magnifying screen attachments anytime soon.

The company is now based in Hong Kong, and is officially now Mad Catz Global Limited. If you want to use your own surface, you can just plug in a USB cable and use it as a wired mouse.

Senator Orrin Hatch's exit opens door to Mitt Romney
In a very statesman-like way, Romney said Hatch "represented the interests of Utah" with honor and distinction. Hatch's announcement rejuvenated already lively talk of a possible Romney return to the political arena.

Mad Catz are also planning a new RAT mouse, the Air. He called the new company's attitude more sober. The R.A.T. requires no unreliable battery pack to operate, instead drawing power via the wireless activation gaming surface, included in pack. One is a more standard over-the-ear cup design (40mm neodymium drivers and a metal plated frame), and the other is a stripped-down, lightweight earpiece and mic design.

Speaking about the return, Mad Catz' Selena Chang explained that the company firmly believes that its "best days lie ahead".

KitGuru Says: It was a sad day when Mad Catz filed for bankruptcy but it looks like the peripheral maker has found its second life.
