Crystal Crisis Puzzles Up The Switch On April 23

The new puzzle game from Nicalis, Crystal Crisis, is now scheduled for April 23, 2019. The game was originally thought to be planned for fall of this year, but obviously the game has taken a little longer to finish than anticipated.




Nicalis, Inc. today announced that Crystal Crisis, the cute and colorful new color-matching combat game, will be released on April 23, 2019. Previously announced for Nintendo SwitchTM, the game will now see simultaneous releases on both Nintendo Switch and PlayStation®4.

Developed and published by Nicalis, Crystal Crisis is presented like a traditional fighting game, but instead of pressing buttons to kick and punch, competitors arrange falling crystals into matching colors to clear them from the screen and inflict attacks on their opponents. In this star-studded crossover puzzle game, players can choose from 19 different playable characters, including fan favorites from Cave Story, The Binding of Isaac, Tezuka Productions and many other surprise entrants.
