Crystal Defenders R1 gets the inevitable R2 sequel
The Wii version of Crystal Defenders wasn't just called Crystal Defenders. Square Enix attached an "R1" to the title, making the naming look suspiciously like the W1 of the original Crystal Guardians cell phone game. The question was, would there be an R2 and R3 much like the cell phone got W2 and W3?
That question was answered today with the announcement of Crystal Defenders R2. You can read all the details on the main channel.
R2 appears to have the same positioning as W2 -- it's meant for players who've familiarized themselves with the basics through the original and offers new gameplay elements in the form of Power Crystals and a large number of new jobs.
I familiarized myself with the basics through R1, and I absolutely hated it due to some pretty shoddy controls. Read all about it here.
"Maybe if Square Enix improves the pointing controls, I'll consider giving the game a look." I put that sentence in quotes because it's something I'd say if I hadn't spent 1,000 yen on the original. Provide a non-shit control patch for the original, Square Enix, and I will consider giving you another 1,000 yen.
