About

In Galak-Z: Variant S, players trek across the universe as A-Tak, the last surviving human pilot, who is fighting to take the universe back from the evil Baron’s Imperial forces. Using a sleek and agile spaceship or an advanced sword-wielding Mech, players can combat the galaxy’s most heinous Imperial fighters, pirate raiders, and space bugs through a colorful and engaging story campaign with more than a hundred replayable missions.

“Bringing Galak-Z: Variant S to the Nintendo Switch was a move we made for the players. The Switch caters to a wide and engaging audience with a deep love for games,” said Jake Kazdal, CEO and founder of 17-BIT. “We’re bringing new changes and making the most of the Switch’s portability and clever design.”
