Razer has created a dedicated microsite for the upcoming Xbox One keyboard and mouse that the company is planning on launching. This will be the first keyboard and mouse designed specifically for the Xbox One and from the looks of it, it is going to be one good looking pair. The keyboard appears to be using Razer’s Chroma dynamic lighting. More noticeable, however, is the dedicated Xbox key where the traditional CTRL key would be. The mouse also appears to be wireless. We can also see an extension extruding from the keyboard which doubles up as a mouse pad.

The dedicated microsite shows a date of January 8, 2019, which could be when Razer officially unveils the keyboard and mouse combination along with pricing. Many Xbox fans have long fantasized about keyboard and mouse compatibility coming to the console, but for many years, there was no official word on the feature. It was only earlier this year at X018 where Microsoft finally announced that they will be bringing keyboard and mouse support to the Xbox, in collaboration with Razer.

The new Razer Keyboard for the Xbox One will feature mechanical keys along with Chroma lighting, which developers should be able to control based on the game environment. As of now, there is no Chroma RGB app for the Xbox, but that could change once the products are launched. The mouse itself resembles Razer’s existing Mamba wireless, but it is possible that Razer may introduce some Xbox specific changes here as well.

One thing to note about the Xbox One keyboard and mouse support is that the console received the support on November 14. As of now, 14 games already support the PC peripherals for the Xbox and Microsoft did make it clear that it would be up to the developers to enable support for their games.  Of the 14 titles, Fortnite and Warframe are the most popular titles to support keyboard and mouse on the Xbox One. In case you’re wondering, you don’t need to buy a Razer keyboard or mouse to use with the Xbox. Almost any wired or wireless keyboard and mouse will work with the console, along with the existing peripherals made by Razer.
