Crystal Crisis

Crystal Crisis Finds its 20th Fighter in Umihara Kawase

Indie game publisher Nicalis has revealed that Umihara Kawase will be joining the Crystal Crisis roster.

Announced via Twitter, Nicalis originally had a tweet saying that 19 was an odd number for a roster and hours later announced the new entry to the game. Umihara Kawase is a high school sushi chef that comes from a unique platforming game of the same name.

Crystal Crisis is a mash-up puzzle-fighter type game staring many indie game characters that Nicalis has published, along with characters from Tezuka Osamu’s work such as Astro Boy and Black Jack.

20 playable fighters is a step up from Nicalis’ last indie game mashup fighter Blade Strangers which had only 14 characters. Umihara Kawase was also featured in Blade Strangers, so the fighter’s return here is a nice surprise.

Fans can jump in on the indie mashup May 28 when the game launches on Switch and PlayStation 4.
