This was actually announced last week, but… better late than never? It’s a new game from Tako Boy Studios and it looks so good I couldn’t NOT post about it even if it might be old news to some of you out there. Anyway, the game is called Cross Blitz and it’s a card battler/RPG hybrid that focuses on both a robust single-player story-driven experience as well as a fully-featured competitive component that will include cross-platform play between iOS, Android, PC, and Mac. Pretty dang cool. Cross Blitz is also stuffed with a ton of personality and humor, and showcases some rather excellent art, animations, and sounds. Basically the type of thing we’ve come to expect from Tako Boy. Check out the trailer for yourself.
If the whole “vibe” of Cross Blitz in that trailer and the name Tako Boy Studios sounds familiar, that’s because they’ve previously put out the rather excellent arcade platformer Candies ‘n Curses in partnership with Crescent Moon Games back in 2018, as well as the also excellent Rivals of Aether spin-off card game Creatures of Aether in partnership with Dan Fornace just last year. These guys have put out some good stuff so that’s another reason I’m so excited about Cross Blitz as this seems like their most ambitious title to date. The plan is to release the game in Early Access on PC later this year, with mobile versions to follow sometime afterwards.
