Razer has just revealed their newest arcade stick. Called the Panthera Evo, this new arcade stick represents their first major arcade stick redesign since they entered the market.

The Razer Panthera Evo for PlayStation 4 features an all-new case and comes with some interesting new features. Most notable are new pushbuttons that feature Razer’s own mechanical switches. Now, this isn’t the first time we’ve had arcade pushbuttons that feature mechanical keyboard switches — however, this is the first time we’re getting them in an off-the-shelf arcade stick.

In addition to the mechanical switches, the Panthera Evo also features interchangeable artwork, a feature that Razer’s Atrox had, but was dropped for the Panthera. Finally, the Panthera Evo will feature a 3.5mm headphone jack so players can plug in a compatible headset, another option absent from the Panthera. As for the rest of the stick, the lever is still the standard Sanwa JLF-TP-9YT and it features the same controls as the regular Panthera.

For those interested in picking up the new Razer Panthera Evo for PlayStation 4, the arcade stick is set to hit retail sometime this Fall for $199.99/€199.99.
