Following a collaboration with PRIX for a translucent mechanical keyboard and Crunchyroll for Jujutsu Kaisen-themed keyboards, gaming peripherals brand Higround now partners with the Street Fighter™ franchise for its first international drop, available in Europe, the U.S., and Japan.
The upcoming series will feature two iterations of the Basecamp 65 keyboard and two of the Summit 65 keyboard — one of which will be exclusive to Japan. The Summit 65, which features its own keycap designs, is Higround’s flagship product featuring a full CNC aluminum case, gasket-mounted design with Poron foam, RGB lighting with South-facing LED, hex screw design made for easy DIY customizations, and the world’s first graphic switch. Keycap graphics feature that of either the fighter Akuma or a classic fight scene between Ryu and Chun-Li. Additional sky characters in Kanji are found on the back with “Ninja” print on the side. Rounding out the collection are XL mousepads, apparel, and a jellybag with an adjustable strap.
“We are proud to partner with CAPCOM to develop this line of premium Street Fighter™ keyboards which pay homage to the cornerstone of gaming culture,” says Higround’s Senior Director of Product, Albert Jin. “As a fan of the franchise, Street Fighter™ epitomizes the excitement of retro arcade gaming, competing with friends, and enjoying the feeling of victory.”
The Street Fighter x Higround collection will be available from April 19 at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET) via the Higround website.
