[News] Bravely Default: Flying Fairy Might Be Flying Overseas


Bravely Default Characters

From Square-Enix and Silicon Studio, the makers of 3D Dot Game Heroes, Bravely Default: Flying Fairy hit Japanese shelves back in October 2012. For years, fans of the JRPG genre have been anticipating a game on par with old-school Final Fantasy games. There have been a few that have been very well received, such as Ni No Kuni and Lost Odyssey, but those are far and few between. Bravely Default: Flying Fairy actually began production as a sequel to the 2010 DS game, Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light changing into a different game somewhere along the way, which has thus far been very well received in Japan. With a job and battle system similar to Final Fantasy V on the SNES, this seems like the game that Western gamers have been waiting for for years now. Fortunately, that might be a possibility as the official Bravely Default twitter has been aglow with teasing a localization lately. The most recent tweet reads:

There is very much comment from overseas one! I do my best to have all of you play!

This isn’t the first time they tease (broken English and all), with a previous tweet mentioning they are listening to the voice of foreign fans. Personally, I would love this, even if I’m still a fan of Square-Enix’s recent work (haters to the left). While reviews have been kind, fans have been sour. This could mean a great return to form for Square-Enix if it follows through, showing the rest of the video game community that they really do still have it in them to make great role-playing games.
