CRYSTAL CRISIS Drops Today on Nintendo Switch!

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.

Action Strategy Card-Battler Golem Gates Arrive May 31st on Nintendo Switch!

Austin, Texas, USA – 16 May, 2019 – Indie publisher Digerati is delighted to announce that release dates have now been confirmed for the arrival on consoles of Golem Gates. The acclaimed action-strategy card-game hybrid will launch on PlayStation 4 on May 28th, then on Xbox One (and as a full 4K gaming experience on Xbox One X) and Nintendo Switch on May 31st.

Developed by Laser Guided Games, Golem Gates is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi blend of action-strategy and card battler, pitting your conjured armies against otherworldly forces. An ancient threat surges from the Golem Gates, and only the Harbinger stands guard. Wielding the nanite-infused power of The Ash, you must protect a world ravaged by ancient wars. Choose from 100 cards (known as Glyphs) and unleash diverse units, buildings, buffs, and more in tactical combat across single player, co-op, and online multiplayer.

Randomized drawing and quick unit placement means you’ll have to adapt on the fly as you formulate your strategy. Add more forces to a battle to turn the tide, transform a scouting party into an army, place emergency defenses to respond to the enemy, or hide an outpost in a direction the enemy doesn’t expect. The choices are yours, but beware: the enemy will do the same and with the right Glyph your forces can be destroyed as fast as they were created.

Key Features

  • Choose your Glyphs: Customize your deck from dozens of units, buildings, traps, buffs, debuffs, and techs
  • Streamlined tactics: Play cards/Glyphs directly into active combat and adapt at a moment’s notice to defend, flank, and fortify
  • Hours of unique content: Single player campaign, challenge scenarios, solo/co-op survival, local and online multiplayer, and more
  • Full 4K gaming on Xbox One X: Enjoy the gorgeous spectacle of science-fantasy warfare and screen-filling magical mayhem

Golem Gates is a great title and we wanted to make it the best it could possibly be on console. Laser Guided Games’ vision has been fully retained and whether it’s enjoying the game in 1080p, full 4K or on the go, Golem Gates has been fully optimised for every console platform and its individual capabilities,” said Digerati Director Nick Alfieri.

“We are so excited that we can finally reveal Golem Gates’ release date on console,” said the game’s creator, Matt Oelfke. “It’s coming soon and we can’t wait to see how console gamers take to the game. We’ve poured our heart and soul into Golem Gates, so we hope it resonates with players.”

  • Slopes – Create angled surfaces by just picking a direction and setting the length. Gentler slopes are an additional option.
  • Angry Sun – Remember the angry sun that attacked Mario in the Super Mario Bros. 3 game? It’s back and ready to put the pressure on players in this new game.
  • ON/OFF Switch – Hit an ON/OFF Switch, and all the red and blue blocks in the course will swap! Setting them up wisely will help players create tricky puzzles and obstacles.
  •  Water Level – The water level in Super Mario Maker 2 can be adjusted in the Forest theme, so only half the course can be underwater if that’s what the player wants. Water can even be set to rise and fall at different speeds over time.
  • Banzai Bill – The red variations of these classic Super Mario enemies have a homing function, and chase poor Mario wherever he goes.
  • Co-op Making: Pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend to create a course together, side by side.

These themes feature new music by veteran Super Mario series composer Koji Kondo. The new Moon course part can be used to unlock night versions of themes. Depending on the theme used, wild things will happen at night, including floating Goombas, dimmed lighting in the Ghost House and sandstorms in the Desert. Some items might even transform in the nighttime…
