Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord will be released for WiiWare on 17th July, i.e. this Friday.

My Life as a Darklord puts you in the shoes of a newly appointed Darklord, whose job it is to strategically position monsters and traps to fight off adventurers. It's tower defence, then, and positioned as a counterpoint to My Life as a King.

That, you may remember, was a rather lovely WiiWare launch title combining role-playing and city-building.
