    Publisher Nicalis announced Crystal Crisis will launch for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on April 23, 2019.

    Here is an overview of the game:

    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 and PlayStation 4. 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 throw down!

    Key Features:

    • 19 unique playable characters, including Quote and Curly Brace from Cave Story, Isaac from The Binding of Isaac, Atomand Black Jack from Tezuka Productions, and many more.

    • 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.
