Netflix and Jim Henson Dark Crystal Tactics game headed for Nintendo Switch

What a gem.

Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics is a real game based on the series being made by Netflix, and it's headed to Nintendo Switch.

Gameplay shown during Nintendo's E3 Direct this morning revealed classic top-down, turn-based battles are in order, all set within the classic '80s fantasy universe.

Other details are still thin on the ground, including a release date more concrete than Q4 2019, and other platforms.
