Crystal Crisis drops today on Switch

Time to crush some crystals

SANTA ANA, California, May 28, 2019 — Nicalis, Inc. today announced that Crystal Crisis, the cute and chaotic new color-matching combat game, is available now on Nintendo Switch. Developed and published by Nicalis, Crystal Crisis is an all-new head-to-head puzzle-battle throwdown: Players arrange falling Crystals into matching colors and shatter them to attack their opponents.

Crystal Crisis players can choose from 20 different combatants, including Nicalis favorites like Quote and Curly from Cave Story and Isaac from The Binding of Isaac, in addition to special guests like Astro Boy and Black Jack from Tezuka Productions. Each character has his or her own “home” stage, musical theme, voice-acted exclamations and special moves called “Bursts.” Players will need to build up their character’s Burst Gauge before they can deliver a powerful Attack Burst or rearrange their own Crystal grid with a Defense Burst.

A variety of single-player gameplay modes (including Story, Arcade, Tag Team, Survival, Training and more) accentuate the battle options, while local and online multiplayer functionality give challengers the opportunity to play against friends, family members and Crystal Crisis fighters worldwide. The onscreen Crystal colors can also be configured to make the game accessible for players with color blindness.

Crystal Crisis for Nintendo Switch is rated E10+ by the ESRB and is available now as a digital download ($29.99 MSRP) or physical retail version ($39.99 MSRP). A PlayStationⓇ4 version will also be available very soon.
