The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics Brings Jim Henson's Gelflings to Switch

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics Brings Jim Henson's Gelflings to Switch

Teaching a whole new generation of children about tactics games.

[Update: We've updated the title to reflect the name of the game.]

In a random surprise during Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct, there was a new tactics strategy game revealed. No, it's not Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Instead, Jim Henson's Dark Crystal is getting in on the action.

The title is The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics. Given the subtitle, it's obviously related directly to the Netflix series of the same name. Take control of the Gelflings and murder all those who stand in your path.

There aren't many more details about DC Tactics, outside of the fat that it's coming from developer BonusXP in 2019. Yes, those are the developers of Stranger Things: The Game.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
