A new portable Final Fantasy game set in the world of Final Fantasy Tactics A2 came out today. For cell phones. Crystal Guardians W1 is the first in an episodic series of mobile FFTA2-related games released for Japanese i-mode phones. In what we think is an inspired choice of genre, Crystal Guardians is a tower defense game that features all of the jobs in Tactics A2. Except instead of a tower, your team defends a crystal against monsters. Because, you know, Final Fantasy.
This announcement puts an end to the speculation about the "Crystal Guardians" trademark registered last week. DS fans would probably say that an inaccessible cell phone game is the worst possible result. But at least it's not a CG movie.
