Adventure Space Shooter Sequel Continues Galactic Battles on New Platforms

EL SEGUNDO, CALIF. – July 12, 2018 – Ready thrusters, set phasers, and prepare for dimensional space clashes in GALAK-Z: Variant S for Nintendo Switch and GALAK-Z: Variant Mobile for iOS and Android devices. GungHo Online Entertainment America (GOEA) and 17-BIT are bringing its new free space mech shooter games on the go.

As a follow-up to the original, GALAK-Z: Variant S and GALAK-Z: Variant Mobile offer players a first-class space roamer adventure with premier galactic weapons and interface on the Nintendo Switch. GALAK-Z: Variant S includes intuitive controls for the Nintendo Switch while GALAK-Z: Variant Mobile creates an optimum touch-screen experience. Both versions have a story-driven campaign and intense combat for players to voyage through the universe at hyperspeed. 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.

“After the popularity of GALAK-Z Variant S at E3, we’re excited to bring this unique space shooter to both Switch and mobile devices,” said Jake Kazdal, CEO and founder of 17-BIT. “With a carefully selected design interface that brings new level of dynamic interaction for both longtime fans and newcomers, players on these new platforms will get to navigate through strategically crafted levels, notable mech customizations, and tense asynchronous battles.”

GALAK-Z Variant S and GALAK-Z: Variant Mobile include:

  • To Infinity and Be Gone - Vanquish the galaxy’s most dubious enemies and fight your way through the Baron’s army of Imperial goons as you juke, blast, and hack your way through tightly-packed, beautifully-crafted environments with your nimble piloting skills
