The Nostromo gaming keypad, designed to allow gamers more intuitive access to gaming commands, was announced by Razer on Friday morning.

The Razer Nostromo features a 16-button keypad layout which puts more keys within easy reach of a gamer’s left hand, typically used for controlling movement in first-person shooter games.

According to the press release received by NGNT, the Nostromo’s 16 keys are fully programmable and can store up to eight key maps or configurations which can be switched on the fly. In addition, the Nostromo has support for up to 20 different game profiles.

There is also an eight-way programmable directional thumb pad and a scroll wheel which can be used for movement or as modifier keys to access auxiliary commands.

The Razer Nostromo will cost S$89.90 in Singapore and hit retail stores in the next two weeks, Razer spokesperson Lisa Twang told NGNT.
