Nicalis has announced that it will be publishing Umihara Kawase Fresh! in the west. In North America and Europe, the game will launch on July 9.

Here’s an introduction to the platformer:

It was nearly a year ago that we first found out about Crystal Crisis, a new puzzle-based fighting game from Nicalis. The game is currently on track to launch on May 28. Ahead of its release, we spoke with Nicalis president Tyrone Rodriguez to learn a bit more about what fans can look forward to.

In our interview, Rodriguez spoke about where the inspiration for Crystal Crisis came from, how characters were decided, teased the story more, and commented on trying to appeal to both casual and competitive players. You can read our full discussion below and check out some brand new screenshots.

[Review] RemiLore

Posted on 2 weeks ago by (@LyonHart_) in Reviews, Switch, Switch eShop | 0 comments | 0 Likes

System: Switch
Release date: February 26, 2019
Developer: Pixellore
Publisher: Nicalis


RemiLore is a beautiful game at face value that brings you into a fantasy world of magic and adventure. You’ll play as the protagonist Remi and her grimoire companion throughout dungeons that are vibrant and stand out compared to other titles within the genre. However, while things may seem appealing and inviting at the surface, what you ultimately have is a game with a bit of an identity crisis as it incorporates so many elements between its story, gameplay, structure, and mechanics that it feels like a mess attempting too much at once just to stand out further. There’s promise to be had every time you play through it, but nothing ever clicks or feels as if it belongs, making the entire experience feel like one big “what’s the point?” scenario.

RemiLore launch trailer

Posted on 3 weeks ago by (@NE_Brian) in Switch, Videos | 0 comments | 0 Likes

RemiLore is officially out on Switch today both physically and digitally. Nicalis published a launch trailer for the game, which we have below.

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.
