SNK 40th Anniversary Collection - Crystalis

NIS America and SNK have released a new trailer for SNK 40th Anniversary Collection introducing Crystalis, one of the many SNK classics included in the collection.

Here is an overview of Crystallis, via NIS America:

Originally released in Japan as God Slayer: Haruka Tenku no Sonata, Crystalis was a game ahead of its time, sporting an elaborate story, advanced graphics, and high quality soundtrack. Today, that same cult classic returns on Nintendo Switch!

Awaken in a post-apocalyptic world, where the forbidden ways of science have been revived by the Draygonia Empire. Guided by the four wise sages and wielding the Sword of Wind, the protagonist must aid a fellow survivor named Mesia and combine the four elemental Swords of Wind, Fire, Water, and Thunder to create the legendary sword, Crystalis. Will he be able to stop the evil ambitions of Emperor Draygon in time to save the world?

SNK 40th Anniversary Collection is due out for Switch on November 13 in North America and November 16 in Europe.
