Uh... looks crystal clear? I guess?

Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal released in 1982 and when it came out people didn’t really know what to do with it. It got mixed reviews, and was frankly a box-office bomb, since people weren’t expecting that kind of Darkness from a Jim Henson production and, I mean… it had to share theaters with ET, so, it was kind of hobbled from the gate. But ever since then, it’s managed to gather a shockingly large cult following, and it’s been so fondly remembered that Netflix is even making a full-puppet prequel called The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. It looks interesting. Looks good.

And to promote that game – and maybe add some extra value to this long-neglected IP – they’ve decided partner up with BonusXP and Krafton to make a tie-in Tactics game for the Switch, called The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics.

And it’s in claymation style because why not.



That’s a lot of proper nouns they’re throwin’ at us.

Anyway, the obvious point of comparison would be Final Fantasy tactics – it’s even kind of in the name – but it’s got a stiffness to it I admit I’m not fond of. For folks who are really keen on this new revival of an old fantasy classic, though, this is probably pretty hype… I mean, crap, who’d of guessed we’d ever get a Dark Crystal game?

Anyway. It’s set to come out later this year. Probably sometime close to the release of the Netflix show if I had to guess.

Which I don’t.

But I am anyway.
