DESIGNED BY GAMERS: THE STEELSERIES KANA
We do more than talk a good game. We play, we create, we push the standards in peripheral design. Kana can mean many different things in different languages. In Swedish, canary. In Azerbjjan, blood. In Hawaiian, demigod. To us, gaming is a culture combined of many languages. Kana means, precision, control, winning and the ability to make you a better player.
The Steel Series Kana bridges the gap between the kinzu and the Sensei. With 6 buttons, a tournament grade optical sensor, it strikes an ideal balance in size, features and performance.
You Want More Buttons?
The SteelSeries Kana features 2 XL-sized, side buttons (one on each side) for easy rapid-fire. If you choose to not use them, then head over to the SteelSeries Engine to disable. Youre welcome.
