Not long ago, we got our first look at Netflix’s prequel to Jim Henson’s classic film The Dark Crystal. Now comes something much more surprising: the movie is getting a game tie-in in the form of a turn-based strategy game for the Switch. Called Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics, the game was revealed this morning at Nintendo’s E3 2019 presentation. It looks just as you’d imagine based on the title: players control squads of units, pulled from the Dark Crystal’s fantasy universe, making moves across a grid-based battlefield. It’s being developed by BonusXP, the same studio behind the Stranger Things tie-in games. Age of Resistance Tactics will be launching sometime later this year.
