Super Rare Games and developer Blingame have teamed up to release a physical version of HAAK for the Nintendo Switch.
HAAK is a pixel-based action platformer with Metroidvania elements. Players take control of the titular Haak as they traverse the land of Sanho using actions such as swinging from a hook, dashing, and slashing. From there, players will find a multitude of secrets and hidden rooms scattered across the land.
The game was originally released on PC and Nintendo Switch in August 2022, with independent game publisher OKJOY handling the distribution. Since then, the game has garnered very positive reviews on Steam, with 90 percent of overall reviews giving it a positive rating.
HAAK’s upcoming physical release will take place on February 15 at 6 p.m. GMT (10 a.m. PST / 1 p.m. EST), and only 3,000 copies will be available for purchase worldwide. It’s priced at $38 / £36 / €42 excluding shipping. Successful orders will ship in early April, and it comes with the following:
- Fully assembled Nintendo Switch game with cartridge
- Interior art
- Full-color manual
- Exclusive sticker
- Set of 3 card trading card pack
Those who want a full set of HAAK trading cards can purchase booster packs for $3 / £3 / €3.50, with a purchase limit of five packs per person. The entire set has five cards, and the full image card can also appear as a shiny variant.
HAAK takes you on an epic expedition across the vast cyber-wasteland to find your lost brother. Explore deserted cities and metro, refine your weapons and hack skills, and uncover the secrets behind metal and dust.
The game uses old-school graphics and dark tones to present a desolate scene of ruins and a multifunction Energy Hook that can be used for attacking and interacting with the environment.
HAAK sets plenty of hidden side quests, foreshadowing, and stingers. Face the threat of mysterious organizations entrenched in this world. Take them down, and embrace the world’s ultimate secret.
