Satisfyingly Punishing 2.5D Bloodbath Slave Zero X is Available Now on Nintendo Switch

Switch Players, Rejoice! This Grotesquely Gorgeous Hack-and-Slash Title is Now Available for Purchase in the eShop.

Prepare for a lesson in brutality as today Ziggurat Interactive, publisher of multiplatform retro and modern games, announces the launch of the wonderfully brutal biopunk title Slave Zero X on Nintendo Switch. Now, Switch players can cut through straight to the rotted core of the Megacity, slaying hordes of bloodthirsty enemies in their wake.

Standard and Digital Deluxe versions launch worldwide on the Switch eShop today,  April 11. The physical versions of Slave Zero X also released today in Asia and Japan, with a May 17 release in the United States and Europe. In the deluxe physical Calamity Edition, players can look forward to a custom Nintendo Switch skin, soundtracks, and three comic books created by Marvel and DC Comics veterans Ant Williams and Andy Lanning (Ideas and Inks) that dive deep into the gnarly Slave Zero universe.

A bloody tale of revenge, Slave Zero X  tells the story of Shou, a warrior who merges with a stolen Slave Unit Prototype, transforming into a vengeful Devil on a quest to eliminate a demagogue. With blades sharp and sweet, players will slice through the brutal forces of SovKhan, the iron-fisted and soul-rotted dictator of Megacity S1-9.

Ziggurat also revealed that players across all platforms will confront one final challenge: SovKhan 300%. Following the completion of the Crimson Citadel game mode, players will confront SovKhan in his ultimate, omnipotent form, as originally envisioned by the game's creators. SovKhan 300% is available from today on PC and consoles, rolling out to all territories as a free update patch.

Additionally, Slave Zero X expands its language support. Coinciding with the multi-platform console launch in Asia and Japan on April 11 (via BEEP!), a new language patch adds translations for the game’s subtitles and interface in Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, and Thai is now accessible on all platforms.

Slash through a variety of gameplay modes in this proto-futuristic 2.5D dystopian world,  unleashing devastating combos, and confronting waves of genetically enhanced biopunk enemies — all underscored by an electrifying synth soundtrack. Embody Shou's relentless quest for retribution in this fierce, adrenaline-pumping title that will resonate with enthusiasts of games such as Devil May Cry, Strider, and Guilty Gear.

Key Features of Slave Zero X include:

  • KILLER COMBOS: Use swift swordplay, explosive ordnance, and stylish combos against an army of meat and metal.

  • DEATH FROM ABOVE: Air juggling, dashes, and frequent target switching allow you to take down foes of any size while wall-jumping and platforming can help you outmaneuver your enemies.

  • FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE: Conquer mini-bosses, set pieces, and climactic 1-on-1 encounters that offer intense challenges against unforgettable villains.

  • STRENGTH IS NOTHING WITHOUT CONTROL: Use the Training Room to hone precise and powerful moves to string together devastating attack sequences.

  • BATTLE TO THE BEAT: A 90s-inspired soundtrack features heavy Drum’n’Bass and funky industrial music that adds to the thrill of combat.

  • FEAST YOUR EYES: A unique visual aesthetic combines nostalgic 2D sprites with an advanced lighting system and stylized 3D environments.

  • DUAL LANGUAGE: Fully voiced in English and Japanese with an all-star voice-acting cast.

  • COLLECTABLE SECRETS: Defeat hidden Gold Troopers throughout the game to collect lore drops that tell the game's back story in Chronicle.

  • THE END IS NEVER THE END: After completing the campaign, further challenges await in the frenetic “Crimson Citadel” challenge tower – with an online high-score leaderboard – and an unhinged, ultra-hard battle with SovKhan in his ultimate form, a.k.a. “SovKhan 300%.”
