Blade Strangers is one of the oddest fighting games on Switch, being a cross-over brawler with an eclectic selection of franchises, where Curly from Cave Story can fight Shovel Knight.

Aban Hawkins was originally the star of the well-regarded 2014 platformer 1001 Spikes, from 8bits Fanatics and Nicalis. The cheeky nod to Crystal Crisis is a reference to how he’s already planned to be in that puzzle fighter-styled game when it launches this May.
Hopefully we’ll get more specifics regarding this potential DLC soon!
