GALAK-Z: Variant S available on Switch right now as a free download (plus gameplay footage)

GALAK-Z: Variant S is a brand new, one-of-a-kind, space-shooting action-RPG that is specially crafted to take advantage of all of the unique features of the Nintendo Switch.

Experience stunning space combat from the cockpit of a sleek spaceship or a giant Mech! Battle space pirates, squish giant bugs, challenge Dark Bot bosses, and crush the evil Baron’s army of nasty Imperial troops through more than a hundred endlessly replayable missions in a full-scale story campaign. Fight against player-created squads in the Bot Battle League and earn Trophies to reap better rewards. Collect upgrades, salvage, relics, and Bots to make your spaceship and Mech even stronger, and fight to become the highest ranked pilot in the galaxy!

● Shoot! Blast enemies away with your spaceship’s rapid-fire laser cannon

● Slice! Carve up foes with your Mech’s radical laser sword

● Upgrade! Enhance your craft with new weapons, armor, and helpful Bot buddies

● Collect! Create squads of friendly Bots to battle against other players and earn special rewards

GALAK-Z: Variant S is playable in TV mode, Handheld mode, or Tabletop mode and supports HD Rumble, the touch screen, Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, and Joy-Con™ controllers.

GALAK-Z: Variant S is currently available on the Switch eShop for free! I think it's going to stay that way, but just incase it doesn't, hop on there now and grab it!

Yep, seems like the game is a free to play version of Galak-Z. Also surprising is playing this for the first time; not what I was expecting based on the podcasts I heard talk about it back when the "full price" version was first coming out. I like some aspects of it. Having the harmful plant pods respawn at the same location as your ship seems like design dos-and-don'ts 101 to me 😕
