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 WiiWare version too.
Both of these WiiWare titles are episodes of Crystal Defenders, a tower defense game that uses sprites from Final Fantasy Tactics A2. Crystal Defenders R1 introduces players to the series with seven kinds of towers. Crystal Defenders R2 has nine towers (half of them are new) and throws power up crystals into the formula.
Each episode of Crystal Defenders was sold as a standalone WiiWare download for 1,000 Wii Points ($10) in Japan.
