Crystal Defenders R1 and R2 are live downloads on WiiWare in Japan. We’ve been following both releases expecting a North American launch any Monday now. Instead the Tose programmed Xbox Live Arcade version comes out in North America first. We get it on Wednesday.
Unlike the WiiWare Crystal Defenders series this is a direct conversion Crystal Defenders for the iPhone. You get 300 stages of Final Fantasy Tactics A2 tower defense for 800 Microsoft Points ($10). That sure beats paying the $10 for 100 stages on WiiWare! You can purchase Crystal Defenders and Peggle, this week’s other Xbox Live Arcade release also on sale for 800 Microsoft Points, for the same price as all the current Crystal Defenders content on WiiWare.
