NIS America announced on Monday that it will release the Switch version of Furyu Corporation's Crystar game in North America and Europe in spring 2022. The Switch version will ship in Japan on February 24.

NIS America's release of the Switch version will have a Limited Edition that includes the game's soundtrack, a hardcover art book, a visual diary, a cloth poster, an acrylic stand, and art cards.

Spike Chunsoft released the game in the West for the PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam in August 2019.

The game shipped in Japan for the PS4 in October 2018.

Spike Chunsoft describes the game:

For when I weep, then I am strong.

Rei, a high school girl, becomes trapped in Purgatory where the souls of the dead are tormented. After awakening with incredible powers, Rei accidently kills her dearly loved little sister, Mirai, whose soul may be lost forever.

To bestow Revival upon her sister, Rei makes a contract with the Demons of Purgatory and agrees to fight monsters for them as their Executor. Rei battles through the many levels of Purgatory, making friends and foes along the way.

As she fights, evil continues to assail and torment her. It's only by confronting her own feelings and mistakes―and expressing them through tears--can Rei overcome the true evil lurking in Purgatory.

Naoki Hisaya handled the game's scenario, Riuichi was the character designer, ntny handled the character designs and also served as the character modeling lead, Hajime Ueda was in charge of insert illustrations, Sakujo composed the background music, Gemdrops developed the game, and anime studio SHAFT animated the game's opening sequence.
