Razer has unveiled a trio of gaming peripherals designed to coincide with the release of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. The Razer Marauder keyboard, the Razer Spectre mouse, and the Razer Banshee headset all share emblazoned StarCraft II logos, bright blue LED lights and costly price tags.

Each of the three StarCraft II-themed accessories host an "actions-per-minute" lighting system that activates the LED lighting in response to whatever is going on in the game. And given these are StarCraft products, each one is meant to be portable since surely they'll be used for tournament play.

For gaming peripherals, the new Razer products are fairly straight-forward. The Razer Marauder keyboard hosts a backlit, elevated keyboard with laser-etched keys. Both the keyboard and Razer Spectre mouse boast a 1ms response time and 1000Hz Ultrapolling. The 5-button grip mouse hosts a 3.5G laser sensor with 5600dpi Razer Precision.

Finally, the Razer Banshee headset includes built-in volume and microphone control and even a detachable microphone boom in the box.

All three of these Razer peripherals will be treated to an international release in the U.S., Korea and Europe in the third quarter of 2010.  Both the keyboard and the headset will set you back a whopping $119.99, while the mouse is (slightly) less for $79.99.
