Aban Hawkins from 1001 Spikes seems to be coming to Blade Strangers as DLC
Posted on 9 months ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in News, Switch eShop | 0 comments
It seems like Blade Strangers, the crossover fighting game from Nicalis, is getting at least one new character as DLC. Nicalis posted the screenshot you see above on Twitter, alongside the text “Aban performs a perfectly timed Counter vs Curly in
#CrystalCri–wait, what!?! This isn’t #CrystalCrisis!”.
Aban (Hawkins) from 1001 Spikes is one of the characters in the picture, however the game shown isn’t Crystal Crisis, a crossover puzzle game in which Aban is confirmed to appear, but Blade Strangers, where he isn’t playable yet. This seems to indicate that Aban will be added to Blade Strangers as DLC; it’s unclear whether this’ll be paid or free DLC.

It was assumed that Nicalis was teasing Hydra (or Hydra Castle Labyrinth) for Switch last month after the company tweeted out an image of the game on the system’s home screen. Now that’s been officially confirmed.
Nicalis’ Tyrone Rodriguez showed Hydra running on Switch during a Polygon live stream yesterday. Additionally, the first gameplay of 1001 Spikes and Cave Story debuted as well. Check out the recording below.

Latest 1001 Spikes Wii U patch causing some notable issues
Posted on 4 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop | 6 Comments
1001 Spikes finally received off-TV play support on Wii U through an update that came out a few days ago. While the feature is a great addition, the patch has unfortunately resulted in a few major issues.
The biggest problem we’re hearing about is related to controls. After applying the update, right on the d-pad crouches and pressing the left stick pauses the game instead of start. Basically, there are some notable control mapping issues. There are also other problems like being unable to access the options settings.
It took Nicalis a very long time to patch in off-TV play for 1001 Spikes. I just hope that it won’t take as long for these new bugs to be addressed!
