May 2023’s Monthly Game Club game is Crystalis for the Nintendo Entertainment System!
Crystalis is an action RPG by SNK. I’d never heard of it before today, so here’s some art and a screenshot while I scurry off and try to learn more:
Nominated by @mindleftbody, here’s what they have to say about Crystalis:
It’s an SNK RPG! I have always wanted to play it. Seems like it would lend itself well to playing as a group.
God Slayer is a 100x cooler name… Just sayin’!
Crystalis also saw release on the Game Boy Color, although it seems quite different (worse) than the NES version. The NES version is available on the Nintendo Switch NES collection (requires online subscription) and part of the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection, so it’s pretty accessible on modern consoles.
Are you joining in this month? If so, which version are you playing? Please share any interesting info you have about the game! I’ll be playing along. I think I may get the SNK collection on Switch and see how that goes.
