Today, multiplatform publisher of retro and modern titles Ziggurat Interactive is excited to announce the physical launch of 2.5D hack-and-slash bloodbath Slave Zero X on Nintendo Switch. In both a Standard Edition and a Deluxe Calamity Edition, players are invited to slice their way to the rotten core of Slave Zero X’s grisly tale of vengeance. Both editions also include the updated mega-challenging boss battle: SovKhan 300%.

Standard Edition

  • Slave Zero X cartridge
  • Guidebook (manual with art)
  • Controls reference card (key art on back)
  • Console-themed costume palette for Shou

The Calamity Edition

  • All elements of the Standard Edition
  • Exclusive outer box
  • Slave Zero X Comic by Andy Lanning and Ant Williams of Ideas & Inks
  • Art Book (“Visuals of Megacity S1-9”)
  • Dual Soundtrack - OST of Slave Zero & Slave Zero X (Physical CD in Europe only)
  • Voucher for Dual Digital OST download - Slave Zero & Slave Zero X
  • 3 Art Postcards

Chief among the goodies in the Calamity Edition is the official art book, with all its wonderfully grotesque and imaginatively bizarre art. Led by Francine Bridge and the Slave Zero X art team and heavily Inspired by H.R. Giger & Anno’s Evangelion, the team created a new take on a dystopian savage future, biomecha artforms, and nubile — yet powerful — characters from all levels of society. The art book is a 150-page love story that visually builds the world sketch by sketch, setting the foundation for the game design — and imagination beyond.

Additionally, Ziggurat partnered with Andy Lanning and Ant Williams, two Marvel and DC Comics legends who’ve worked on properties such as Guardians of the Galaxy and Batman, for an official comic miniseries for Slave Zero X. Included in the Calamity Edition, the miniseries depicts the backstory of several major characters from the game, all set in a dystopian biopunk setting. These comics are available in the Calamity Edition of Slave Zero X and in the Digital Deluxe version on PC.

Slave Zero X is available to purchase from these retailers at USD $29.99 for the Standard Edition and USD $49.99 for the Calamity Edition.
