Razer launches customized version of Smurfs peripherals

Razer has announced the debut of the RAZER | The Smurfs collection, a line of peripherals now available for purchase on Razer.com. While the Smurfs might be diminutive in stature, their collective strength is undeniable. Gamers can now embark on their next digital odyssey, wielding these new tools as they valiantly march towards their azure victories.

The Smurf-inspired hardware offerings from Razer encompass the Razer Orochi V2, custom top covers for the same, and three distinct sizes of the Razer Gigantus V2 mouse pad, all adorned with iconic Smurf characters and designs commemorating the 65th anniversary of the Smurfs’ inception.

The Orochi V2 represents Razer’s latest iteration of the Orochi, launched after a considerable hiatus. This wireless gaming mouse adheres to a compact and ultra-light design philosophy, boasting impressive battery longevity. It features both Razer HyperSpeed wireless and Bluetooth connectivity options, with a staggering battery life of up to 950 hours. Setting it apart from its predecessor, this new generation of Orochi has eschewed cords entirely and weighs a mere 60 grams, excluding the battery.

The artistic embodiment of the Smurfs was conceived by Belgian cartoonist Pierre Culliford, known pseudonymously as Peyo, and made its inaugural appearance on October 23, 1958, in the Belgian comic magazine “Spirou”. Upon their introduction, the Smurfs captivated audiences and, by the late 1950s, had been animated for Belgian television broadcasts. Over the decades, Peyo meticulously crafted a comprehensive fantasy realm, elevating the Smurfs to a global pop culture phenomenon, and endearing them to successive generations of children.
