Crystal Crisis Finds its 20th Fighter in Umihara Kawase



Crystal Crisis

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.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware



FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
