During Nintendo’s E3 2019 Direct, it was revealed that The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is also getting a spin-off turn-based, strategy game entitled The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics on Nintendo Switch.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is an upcoming Netflix TV series arriving on August 30, and prequel to Jim Henson’s 1982 film The Dark Crystal.
The new game mimics the puppet style for its characters in homage of Jim Henson’s iconic work. You control groups of units and traverse around a grid battlefield, skin to XCOM, the Warhammer 40,000 series, or Wargroove. Gelflings will fight against enemy Skeksis, and you can use buildings and items within your envrioment to help you fight as well.
You can check out the new trailer down below shown off during the Direct. The spin-off game is set to release exclusively for the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2019.
