Crystal Defenders: Vanguard Storm Is Another Dose Of Final Fantasy Defense

By Spencer . May 13, 2009 . 12:57am

So, that Vanguard Storm trademark wasn’t for a Square Enix action game. It’s a subtitle for a Crystal Defenders sequel. Crystal Defenders: Vanguard Storm is also a defense game, but not a tower defense game. Vanguard Storm is a monster blocking game.   Monsters move from the left side of the screen to the right. […]

Crystal Defenders: Why Is The Fate Of The Crystals In My Hands?

By Spencer . March 11, 2009 . 9:26pm

The world is in danger, maybe, but there isn’t time for Square Enix to tell us why. Crystal Defenders skips the story and jumps right into waves of crystal hungry monsters. Bare bones presentation, I know. This was originally a mobile phone game and Square Enix reused assets from Final Fantasy Tactics A2 so I […]

Crystal Defenders Ready For PlayStation Network Too

By Spencer . March 11, 2009 . 1:40am

Any minute now Crystal Defenders is going to pop on Xbox Live. Surprisingly, Square Enix’s tower defense game got a simultaneous release on Japan’s PlayStation Store as well.   Overseas Crystal Defenders for PlayStation 3 costs 900 yen or about $9.15 in greenbacks. That’s a tiny bit cheaper than the Xbox 360 version which is […]

Crystal Defenders R1 And R2 Spawning Overseas

By Spencer . February 27, 2009 . 9:50am

While not as exciting as the Final Fantasy IV: The After Years news, the ESRB also leaked Crystal Defenders R1 and Crystal Defenders R2 will arrive on North American Wiis in the future. Shocked right? Since Crystal Defenders for the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 was already heading overseas it seemed logical Square Enix would bring the […]

Crystal Defenders (Mostly) Confirmed For North America

By Spencer . January 23, 2009 . 11:39am

You didn’t think Square Enix would pass on releasing Crystal Defenders here did you? Of course not!  It’s still nice to have some kind of confirmation even though it isn’t from the desk of Square Enix USA.   The ESRB just rated Crystal Defenders, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of it, giving it […]

Waves Of Crystal Defenders

By Spencer . January 21, 2009 . 5:42am

Crystal Defenders, or should I say Crystal Guardians, started off as a mobile phone game in Japan. Then it became an iPhone game, a sensible move by Square Enix to give their Final Fantasy tower defense game an international release.   Next week on January 27 Crystal Defenders is popping up as a WiiWare game […]
