While we continue to know data and images of ‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics’ , the series prepared by Netflix about the movie of the same name in 1982, we have heard about another bombing related to the film, but to enjoy it in another way. This is the new game ‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics’ , an RPG developed by Bonus XP and based on this production still to come from the streaming service .
From the game we have also seen an advance in the form of a trailer in the whole stream of news that Nintendo had saved for E3 2019 . We saw it exclusively for Switch, but it will reach more consoles, PC and Mac as the study has confirmed.
Recalling a little the fame of this fantastic genre story, both the series and the game we are talking about now are based on the movie ‘The Dark Crystal’ from 1982, the work of Jim Henson (creator of ‘The Muppets’, ‘Teleñecos’) in Spain). It was a striking film, as much as its budget (about 25 million dollars), although it eventually ended up being a cult film within this genre, and all that has been revived 37 years later.
The game that we could see for Switch on the Nintendo Direct is an RTS of the style ‘Socom’ or ‘Mario Rabbids’. A turn-based strategy game handling the Genflings and the narrative connected to the story arc of the Netflix series that will be available this 2019.
Now we know a little more of this title that will finally be multiplatform, as we have already anticipated, arriving in addition to PlayStation 4, the Xbox One and computers (PC and Mac) . Masse Entertainment tells us that ‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics’ is a strategic RPG based on that fantastic world of Thra connected to the plot and events of the series.
The goal: to restore light in the world and fulfill the prophecy through 80 battles in turns , having to look for allies and customize the characters with skills and equipment in order to establish the best defense and attack against the Skeksis, which They will be difficult. In addition, explains Stefan Ramírez (of En Masse Entertainment), there will be exclusive extra content of the game, such as characters, stories and challenges, that will not be seen in the series.
This expanded world of Thra in the video game will include a diversity of territories that will allow the player to learn something more about the clans of Gelflings and their history. All devised so that the strategy has to be always present and that quick changes are needed to win the battles, with a New Game + mode with more complicated battles available .
Regarding the availability, there is not yet a specific date, but we will know that it will arrive at the end of 2019 . Something that seems quite convenient seeing that the series will premiere on August 30 on Netflix, and thus have created that desire for more of the most game fans (perhaps also close to the Christmas season).
