Originally announced for the fall, Nicalis’ Crystal Crisis has been delayed to April 23rd 2019. A former Nintendo Switch exclusive, it’s also coming to PlayStation 4 on the same day. Both platform’s versions will run for $39.99 USD, and while the Switch version will have a retail release, it’s not clear if PS4 will as well.

Announced back in May, Crystal Crisis is a puzzle-fighting game that notably crosses over characters from Nicalis-published properties and Tezuka Productions. That means the likes of Isaac and Curly Brace will do battle against Black Jack and Astro Boy (the Mighty Atom).

Within the same PR of the Crystal Crisis release date, Nicalis also confirmed that the previously Switch console-exclusive The End is Nigh, and the PC-bound Rouge-LITE Dungreed, will also arrive on PS4 in 2019.
