Keep in mind Blade Strangers? I actually do. Final yr’s wacky cross-developer and cross-country indie combating sport from Nicalis introduced collectively the likes of Cave Story, Shovel Knight, Code of Princess, The Binding of Isaac, and extra. Forward of a brand new crossover from Nicalis in a unique style area, Crystal Disaster, Nicalis seems to be teasing some newcomers to the world of Blade Strangers. Try the tweet from Nicalis, which is fairly self-explanatory:

Pictured in that screenshot is Aban Hawkins, the protagonist of hardcore platformer 1001 Spikes. Whereas Hawkins is already a confirmed member of the Crystal Disaster roster, there have been no hints of his involvement with Blade Strangers prior to now. And that screenshot positively isn’t from a puzzle sport. This isn’t a proper announcement with a date or worth or something, nevertheless it’s a enjoyable tease forward of such information.
Whereas Crystal Disaster has quite a lot of the identical characters concerned as Blade Strangers, additionally current is a partnership with Tezuka Productions, the home of IP from legendary mangaka Osamu Tezuka. This brings heroes Atom (aka Astro Boy) and Black Jack into the combination. I’m not saying these characters are coming to Blade Strangers, however I could also be saying I’ll freak out a bit in the event that they do.
Crystal Disaster is a aggressive puzzle sport that’s set as much as resemble a combating sport, not in contrast to Capcom’s traditional Puzzle Fighter collection. It’s at present set to launch for each the PlayStation four and the Nintendo Swap on Could 28, 2019.
