17-Bit and GungHo Team Up to Bring Galak-Z to Mobile Devices

After announcing their partnership last October, 17-Bit and GungHo Online Entertainment America have revealed that they will be teaming up to bring Galak-Z, 17-Bit’s incredible deep-space roguelike released earlier this month, to mobile devices in 2016. Titled Galak-Z: Variant Mobile, the new version of the game “will be optimized for the mobile experience with fully integrated touch screen controls, updated UI, and more”.

A move to mobile could be a masterstroke by 17-Bit, making the glorious Galak-Z accessible to millions more players. However, its success will ultimately come down to how the studio decides to translate the game’s deep and precise control scheme onto a touch screen device – we sure hope they can pull it off.
