Square Enix plans to release WiiWare, Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network versions of mobile title Crystal Defenders.

According to Famitsu (thanks IGN), Crystal Defenders R1 will be released for WiiWare in Japan on 27th January for 1000 Wii Points (GBP 7 / EUR 10 approx).

There's no word on pricing or availability of the XBLA and PSN versions though, and IGN's read on the Famitsu piece suggests they will be embellished ports of the mobile original, while the WiiWare version - which includes some form of Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection support - may be more substantial.

Crystal Defenders was originally released on mobiles last January and came out on the iPhone just before Christmas. It's a tower defence-style game where players position units from the Final Fantasy Tactics series to take out enemies who march along a winding path from one side of the screen to the other.

We've asked Square Enix if it can shed some more light on game features and European release plans, so we'll let you know.
