Crystal Crisis

Blade Strangers won’t be Nicalis’ only new crossover game for Switch this year. While that title is a fighter, the company just announced Crystal Crisis, which is more puzzle-focused.

Crystal Crisis will feature various characters from games and more, including Quote and Curly Brace from Cave Story, Isaac from The Binding of Isaac, Astro Boy and Black Jack from Tezuka Productions, and many more. Expect different modes and support for local / online multiplayer.

Here’s more information and the debut trailer:

An all-star cast of heroes has gathered to test their mettle in Crystal Crisis, a cute and chaotic new color-matching combat game for Nintendo Switch. Crystal Crisis is presented like a one-on-one fighting game, but instead of pressing buttons to kick and punch, players arrange falling gems into matching colors to clear them from the screen and inflict damage on their opponents. It’s the ultimate puzzle battle throwdown!

• 19 unique playable characters, including Quote and Curly Brace from Cave Story , Isaac from The Binding of Isaac, Astro Boy and Black Jack from Tezuka Productions and many more.
• Build up your “Burst” Gauge with repeated combos to unleash more powerful attacks.
• Multiple single-player game modes, including Arcade, Survival Mode, Tag Team and Training Mode.
• Local and online multiplayer options to play against friends, family members or challengers worldwide.
• Multiple single-player game modes, including Arcade, Survival Mode, Tag Team and Training Mode.
• Innovative new “wrap-around” feature allows you to move falling pieces beyond the edge of the wall to reappear on the other side.
• Each character has his or her own stage, musical theme, unique special attacks and voice-acted exclamations.
• Optional “Colorblind Mode” makes gems easier to distinguish for players with color blindness.


Crystal Crisis launches for Switch this fall. Pricing is set at $39.99.
