Classic Anime-Inspired Shmup Galak-Z Heads to Switch

Publisher GungHo Online Entertainment America and developer 17-BIT have announced Galak-Z: Variant S.

The new version of the game is coming to the Nintendo Switch, and it comes with all the games core features, optimized for the Switch and its three playing modes.

Here’s a rundown on the new port:

As a follow-up to the original, Galak-Z: Variant S delivers a premier galaxy-surfing, space-blasting experience on the Nintendo Switch with intuitive controls, a story-driven campaign, and intense combat for players to voyage through the universe at hyperspeed. In this spaced-out game developed by 17-BIT, players can collect upgrades, salvage, relics, and Bots to max out their spaceship’s potential and boost their Mech’s combat effectiveness to become the highest ranked pilot in the galaxy.

“With Galak-Z: Variant S, we’re capitalizing on the Nintendo Switch’s maximum potential with handheld and tabletop mode, and implementing new changes in the game,” said Jake Kazdal, CEO and founder of 17-BIT. “By bringing this title to the Nintendo Switch, we are delivering an incredible space exploration experience to a wide and eager player base.”

If you’re in attendance at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, the game will be playable at the GungHo booth.

Galak-Z has been available for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and both iOS and Android devices.
