Previously expected to arrive in "fall 2018", Crystal Crisis now has a new Switch release date of 23rd April 2019.

If you've missed the news on this one, Crystal Crisis is a colour-matching combat game featuring fan favourite characters from the likes of Cave Story, The Binding of Isaac, and Tezuka Productions (although "many other surprise entrants" have also been teased). The game is presented as a traditional fighting game, but instead of pressing buttons to kick and punch, competitors arrange falling crystals into matching colours to clear them from the screen.

Doing so will inflict attacks on your opponents, and those opponents will be made up of a star-studded cast of 19 different playable characters from the games mentioned above and more. You can see some of these stars in the game's opening cinematic below.
