MAD CATZ Releases the Tritton Kunai
It is about that time of year for all of favorite games and gaming accessories to release.
Today, MAD CATZ officially released the Tritton Kunai headset for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. This entry level headset is geared towards those individuals on the go. It comes equipped with a breakaway 3.5mm (standard headphone input) connector and a removable mic. You can use the headset for gaming purposes or on the go for your other audio devices with an auxiliary port.
“The release of the Kunai demonstrates our commitment to the audio category, furthering our strategy to provide gaming headsets across all major hand-held, console, and PC gaming platforms.” said Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. “We believe the ability to use the Kunai both for gaming and as a lifestyle headset provides a unique opportunity for us to expand our market share and deliver innovative products to the passionate gamers.”
At $59.99, the MAD CATZ Tritton Kunai is affordable for all gamers and non-gamers to enjoy the Tritton sound on a budget.
The Tritton Kunai will also be available for Nintendo 3DS and the Nintendo Wii U. This is somewhat of a surprise as we haven’t heard much about any headsets geared toward the new Nintendo console.
