There are some major problems there


1. despite all the demand, we still got a "no plans" from Square


2. they have moved on to the sequel, which lowers the chances of a US/European release to around zero


3. they have a conflicting title now, Final Fantasy all the Bravest would conflict with Bravely Default a lot, which means they have zero intention of ever releasing the game outside Japan rather clearly


.


In short, everything points to the fact that we will never see the game and that is the only sure fact right now


It is like beeing in the middle of the ocean and see a giant shark coming at you, surly there is a chance in the billion that he had whale a minute before and wont harm you, but would you ever think that when you see it?


Same thing with BD, all signs point to another major Square dissapointment and the sooner we realize it the better


So we can start a "dont buy Square games" movement, which will not be so hard considering the quality of FF games lately

You're jumping the gun here. It's only been 3 months, but it's still imperative to let them know there's demand. I wouldn't write it off with no plans of a localization just yet.


Most I'd say is start getting a little concerned if nothing is said by March or around that time, but until then I feel there's still some leeway.

I would jump the gun if they had not moved to a sequel and release a similar named game in the west, like all the bravest


Now all i do is see the obvious, that (as they themselves comfirmed) there are no plans to release outside Japan


How many months and how many people would be needed to change their mind ?


Maybe wait a life time to see if a game will release ?


Is there even a reason to make petitions and polls ? If they need 100.000 signatures, then this will not happen in this life time, you cant simply get extra millions of buyers without any advertisement or something


Point is, all these seem pointless now, the people interested so far dont even reach 1000, which is a tiny ammount by any standard


So, how will they know the demand before advertising, reviews or demos ? I think they are just mocking us with this thread, if they were serious, they would have announced the game for US after all the posts here


Obviously they never plan to do anything like that


I dont see what will change by March TBH, even if we go to 1200 petition signatures by then, wont change much

1. How long ago did they say that?





2. Are there any examples of a Square-Enix Japanese sequel being developed and its prequel never being localized in the past? Where is your evidence that this is indicative of no localization?





3. All The Bravest came out in Japan as well. How does this interfere with the localization based on name alone?

Square's bi-monthly meeting in Japan for localizations overseas is set for mid-February. Odds are Bravely Default will be discussed there, according to someone who has revealed similar information in the past and was proven right. He initially mentioned All the Bravest has nothing to do with BDFF and was spot-on, so he's legit. You can find out who he is on the GameFAQs board for the game.


Given Iwata finished the Nintendo Direct for Wii U this morning saying a Nintendo Direct for 3DS will be "coming soon," it seems to overlap too well with Square's localization meetings that are held in Japan. Keep your pants on and wait for mid-February to see how things go.





In terms of the game itself: I've just beaten it and got the true ending a few days ago.


Very fantastic game, reminds me a lot of the SNES/PS1-era games. If I had to describe it, it makes me think of the love child of Final Fantasy IX (art direction), Steins;Gate (borrows a lot of story elements from it, but it has the same writer), and Final Fantasy V (very similar job system, but ultimately is better). FFIX is my favorite game of all time, so I'm cool with this.


Despite the cute art style of the game, like FFIX (and this is why I say it draws similarities), it can be surprisingly dark in some areas of its narrative. However, I suppose it did get a CERO rating of C in Japan for a reason -- I won't really detail unless if asked, but the game does know how to keep the player's attention.


Only flaw I saw with the game was that chapters 5 - 8 can be an extreme drag in repetition. The game at least rewards you for pushing on through those parts with some of the best equips in the game.


Also... Ending comments below, but marked as a spoiler.





The ending reminds me a lot of Persona 3 and Final Fantasy X in that Tiz expires at the end (I presume he was dead to begin with, being suspiciously the "sole" survivor of Nolende getting nuked, as he was only living on Airy's sister's life force -- He finally collapses at his sister's gravestone in the end) and Ringabell returns to his own world to stop Airy, accepting his true identity as Anazel D. I'll just assume he ended up happy with the Edea in that world because my fangirl tendencies would hate for my OTP to get botched.


Overall, probably my second favorite RPG after FFIX. It does rely on some ye olde cliches in the story, but it struck all the right fences for it to be considered a delight in my book -- Excellent music, amazing art direction, loveable characters, fun battle system, etc.

Hmm thanks for bringing that up Neophoton. I hope Bravely Default is among them. It would be the most convenient time for them to do so.

Hahahaha I'm not going to ask for that particular spoiler but I heard that they might change one of the story elements slightly if they do get an International release.


I did hear that they cut out some scenes in the original version of FF XII and put them back in the English release. I think it was something to do with a horrible event going on in Japan at the time (which is weird because it's usually the other way round). I don't know.

It's likely the uh... bondage scene involving Penelo. *cough* It's restored in the International Zodiac system, I do believe.


In the last Famitsu interview with the staff on BDFF in regards to a localization, they did state they were reconsidering redrafting parts of the game to be better suited for localization, yet attempting to retain the original tone.


The part that comes to mind takes place in the town of Flowell. I'll just put the details under a spoiler tag, though it really isn't much of a spoiler. It's for the subquest for the Red Mage class, however:





Fiore de Rosa, leader of the Blood Rose Brigade and the holder of the Red Mage class, is a 37-year old man known for his love affairs in Flowell. In the scenario for the subquest, Ringabell becomes interested in his "technique" for wooing women and tails him one evening with Edea. Edea offers to go with Fiore for the night -- keep in mind she's 15 -- and gets seduced by him. All while wearing a skimpy outfit (it's called a "Bravo Bikini" -- you DO get it as exclusive armor for Edea in the game. Unsurprisingly, you can't sell it) and well... while nothing is said at all, one can get the horrifying implication of what went on. Granted, Fiore was exposed to using pheromones to seduce women. Ringabell does come to Edea's rescue so all ends well. This is just major NTR material once you understand the party's relationships with one another.


In short: unfortunate implications. The age of consent in Japan varies on prefectures, but the lowest is 15 overall, and given different audiences on what is acceptable (Japan vs the West) -- It wouldn't surprise me if that part is redone.


And most I can say is there's a good chance that some good news will pop up in the next 2 - 3 weeks. I've been posting photos to Tumblr and Twitter to help advertise the game. Same username all around if you happen to spot those photos -- I implore sharing them with friends. Square can call it free advertising on my part because I want the game to do well.


Edit:


Forgot to mention that they're considering bringing Praying Brage before Flying Fairy to drum up interest. I'd make it imperative that BDPB is not what is desired, but BDFF. Sorry, but it's just some shoddy browser game people likely played just to get Edea's bonus costume.

Saw your post on my Blackberry and it didn't hide the spoilers. Rats. :( Never mind. Hopefully, I'll avoid the rest!





Warning for spoilers and Trigger Warnings for horrible implications



ALSO TRIGGER WARNING FOR MENTION OF RAPE.


Ah.....I would understand if that got edited. Since it's got two horrible implications. Not only the age thing - forgive me if I've misinterpreted what you've said but what you said about this Fiore implies that Edea wouldn't have consented under normal circumstances and, well....I get why that would make people uncomfortable. It's making ME uncomfortable.





I'd still get the game, regardless, and probably enjoy it, regardless (there is no game/movie/whatever that is perfect). I just wouldn't like having to do THAT scene if it's unedited.


Edit: Also, I'm curious where you got the information about Praying Barge from. Not saying that you're lying, I'm just interested. XD

Keeping it in spoilers as well. Shame Square can't update coding for their forums on mobile. I legitimately had zero intentions of spoiling people whatsoever on the game.


It's implications of both rape and pedophilia. Fiore is an antagonist, so that would easily make him the party's enemy. So yes, you're right: under normal circumstances, she wouldn't have consented IF -- IF -- that's what went on. This is a cultural conflict because of how people view the matter in Japan and overseas. Not to say it's accepted in Japan, just it's a bit more... lax, to put it lightly, compared to North America.


It's not outright said, just one could get that idea that's what happened. I personally like to think otherwise, but sadly there's going to be implications regardless. Once again, it's hard for me to phrase it without coming off as insulting to another country when I have no intention of it.


In that scenario, it does make me associate Ringabell with Zidane in that he's a chivalrous pervert (...I keep comparing to FFIX, sue me, but I adore the two a lot so think of it as a good thing), but still a good guy all around. Agnes has problems with him tagging along the party (which comprised of just her and Tiz at the time) at the start of the game because she knew he was a playboy.


Kept that last line non-spoiler'd beceause it happens within like the first hour of the game. Or at least, I won't tag what I can say is definitely not a spoiler.


Edit:


Famitsu interview from around late October/early November. It's the same interview that mentioned they'd consider changing some stuff for localization. I see it as a warning more than anything else for you guys because BDPB is... not a good game. Everyone really just played it for the bonus costume for Edea, 'cause activity dropped quite a bit after the costume was distributed.


That, and you know how Square can be. *cough* Sometimes they're convinced they have a good idea when they wound up being completely off-track. It's why I say demand BDFF to be exact, even if they likely know that's what we want. Never hurts to be precise, though.

No worries. It's not your fault I saw them. I'm not blaming you at all. XD


Also keeping in spoilers.


TRIGGER WARNINGS FOR MENTIONED RAPE AND PAEDOPHILIA STILL


Yeah. If this game does come out of here in Europe and in the US, I'll still buy it. Although I would warn people who might be interested that there is a mention of implied rape and paedophilia. Simply because I can't pretend that there won't be people on the Internet or real life who have gone through such awful and traumatic experiences in real life and might (very understandably) not want to buy the game or do that particular sidequest because of it (I'm sure some of them will by the game regardless because people handle trauma differently. But respecting their comfort zones are more important than getting them to buy the game).





Hahaha okay. Also, I adored Zidane. I have a soft spot for optimistic and goofy characters. If Ringabell is anything like him, I might warn up to him quite quickly.





Edit: Ah, rats. :( If it didn't sell well in Japan, I hope it makes them reconsider. If they release the browser title first, it might put people off from wanting the 3DS game.

I've friends who are envious I've already completed the game as they've no means of playing it, so I've wound up being very fickle on spoilers lately, haha. ;w; That and I can understand the amount of hype people have for this game -- It's worthy of it, I can assure everyone.


That reason is why I really loathe Fiore. I'd just see beating the crap out of him for the Red Mage class as making it up for what goes on. It would be even worse if such implications had him get off with a slap on the wrist.


...And that's why everyone should hate Karmic Houdinis. Breath of Fire 4's Yuna comes to mind with deeds unpunished.


You'd probably love Ringabell, despite him being a skirt chaser. He gets most of the funny lines in the game and is typically the one willing to partake in silly parts of the game -- Likely to be a foil to that of Tiz who's a bit more straight-laced. I guess that's why the Japanese fans take more of a liking to Ringabell than the rest of the cast.


BDPB was F2P, but just hope Square Enix thinks it's a dumb idea to bring a game nobody would really care for. I'd just suggest to them to make the costumes a preorder bonus based on certain retailers, as much as I'd hate the idea. Except the Freelancer costume set, could see that just being a "register the game for points" sort of bonus. Too bad I'd have hella hard time deciding between Edea and Ringabell's costumes for being retailer-exclusive.


I just think of them doing the preorder bonus instead of wasting resources on a game nobody is going to care for as better odds for BDFF not to be considered a lost by any means. Lesser of two evils, so to speak -- I don't enjoy DLC by any means, but I also try to think of what can be beneficial overall. I'd also certainly love that artbook in a special edition, too! ;D


I missed out on the collector's pack in Japan, when all I'd really want is the artbook. Shame people on eBay are overpricing the hell out of the collector's pack. Wonder if they'd be willing to part ways with the artbook for a lower price?


(Your username -- By any chance, are you female? I'd just like to point out BDFF's target audience is ~20 year old females, though I know plenty of guys who enjoyed it, too. Just rare I get a good discussion with another FF fan that isn't crying the series is dying or some nonsense.)

I never understood all the sensitivity over video games, when on TV we see 10.000.000 times worst stuff


Anyway, i can understand those with traumatic experiences for sure, but then all movies/games should be removed from the market, because i can surly find a million things in there people could have been traumatized by


In any case, just cut what is to cut and bring the game, seeing all that talk about why it will never come is a bit frustrating, i dont care what the game has, nor do i want to know if it is a reason why it would not come


It frustrates me to even read a hint about reasons why the game should not come to US, hope i did not sound very rude :)


Lets talk about why it should come


Also i doubt the browser terrible spin off would put anyone off

Yuna from BOF IV * shudder *


And yeah, I don't mind some skirtchasers. As long as there is something else about them. (I really liked Zelos from Tales of Symphonia, even though his perverted behaviour is worse than Zidane's - although thankfully he gets smacked by Sheena for it. XD But Zelos was a pretty interesting character once you found out about his background)





I wouldn't mind the stuff being retail-exclusive if they plan to release the bonus stuff later. I remember that Cloud's DLC costume was a preorder bonus for the Americans. We Europeans got it Tifa's and Squall's costumes for pre-order instead and got Cloud's costume on the PSN a few months later or so.





Yeah, I am a girl. XD Bravely Default's target audience is mostly adult women? Wow. :) That sounds pretty awesome! And I hope that fact doesn't put off too many guys playing the game either. Plenty of men who have been open-minded enough have enjoyed awesome shows like Sailor Moon and Puella Magi Madoka Magica. And My Little Pony (although some of the Bronies do grate on my nerves).





The FF series is dying? People have been arguing that for years even before FF XIII. XD No matter game SE releases or no matter what they do, it's going to split the fanbase (you like FFs I-VI better, you're a retro nerd, if you prefer FF VII, you're a delusional Sephiroth fanboy/girl, if you like FF VIII better, you only like it for the graphics, if you like FF IX better, you only like kiddie games, if you like FF X-2, you're only in it for the fanservice, etc, etc) . And while SE have made terrible localization/gaming decisions (IMO), I do like some of the games they have released recently (I liked FF XIII and XIII-2, despite their flaws, although I didn't much like XII. And I loved KH 3D despite the bizarre plot. Also, I adore the Dissidia series and Theatrhythm). I guess some of it is personal preferences. RPGs are never going to be a one-size-fits-all.









I never understood all the sensitivity over video games, when on TV we see 10.000.000 times worst stuff





Anyway, i can understand those with traumatic experiences for sure, but then all movies/games should be removed from the market, because i can surly find a million things in there people could have been traumatized by





In any case, just cut what is to cut and bring the game, seeing all that talk about why it will never come is a bit frustrating, i dont care what the game has, nor do i want to know if it is a reason why it would not come





It frustrates me to even read a hint about reasons why the game should not come to US, hope i did not sound very rude :)





Lets talk about why it should come



I'm not arguing that it should be removed from the market or that it shouldn't come over here. I think that it would be considerate of the localizers to put at least a small warning, though. If anything, banning would be counter-productive and probably make the game more desirable (Manhunt got removed from shelves in the UK but the sales of the game soared as a result). I am all for putting a warning on it, though so that people could avoid it if they want it to. Then everyone wins.


That, and horrible implications can also be used as a springboard for parents to teach their children not to behave like that. Twilight is an awful book with horrible implications but it could be used by parents to teach their children how not to treat their partners when they date/get married. As much distaste as I have for the series, I wouldn't want it to get banned.

Female as well, even if my username is extremely gender-neutral (and I've been told I come off as male due to seemingly being formal in my posts). I'd just assume some of my mannerisms made it evident. Such as being a sucker for shipping Ringabell/Edea. I was just able to tell by your mannerisms, but I feel that's a good thing!


Ringabell has more depth to him beyond being moderately silly and a general playboy, but sadly I cannot details or I'd take the fun out of it. He personally stole the show in my book -- And for a lot of Japanese fans, too.


It definitely has enough material to be liked by both male and female -- In fact, I'd say it has a broad range in appeal. Only people I could think who would dislike it are non-RPG fans or people not fond of older RPGs. Most of the fandom thus far is definitely female, though.


I've enjoyed the series overall, but it's hard for me to hate a series I've been a fan of for so long and grew up with, though XIII's not one of my favorites, I still enjoyed it to some extent! I just ignore the sequels since I figure they're for the people who enjoy it and they're simply not my cup of tea. Either way, it is good to find someone who can fancy the series to a great extent. I view the series as each installment holding appeal to at least one person, even if it's someone different from the last. Definitely agreed on how split the fanbase can be, though.


I feel like I'm going off-topic, but I rarely ever find a level-headed FF fan these days considering most of my friends aren't much into Square Enix anymore.


I won't say I support any form of censorship, because it's an entire subquest that is questionable so it's not like it can really be removed when it grants you a new class to use. Most I'd say is revise the scenario to avoid any flack.


Doesn't help when video games are currently getting a lot of heat from the media here in the US at the moment (because how dare anyone blame people, it can only be gaming/movies/music's fault~), so honestly... can't really blame publishers from being afraid at the moment.





Guess I'll reiterate the post about jumping to the BDFF board on GameFAQs for those who'd like to hear more proper information. The guy posting the info is legit, he was right about AtB awhile ago. We're more for discussing the game over there, but doesn't mean this thread shouldn't be active -- If anything, I'd love to get Square's attention since I've been freely advertising the game for them on other sites for awhile now. :P

Well, it looks like Square Enix are localising KH 1.5 Remix (if the Jesse McCartney voicing clip is what I think it is: khinsider.com/news/Recording-Begins-for-... (http://khinsider.com/news/Recording-Begins-for-KINGDOM-HEARTS-HD-1-5-ReMIX-3181)). A first opportunity for the West to get KH Final Mix and for us Brits to get KH RE:Com! Since FM has never been released outside Asia until now, it may or may not up SE's chance of localising BD. Who knows?


Ahahahaha I've been confused as a guy, despite my username. I try not to assume anyone's gender unless they state it, though.


Ringabell sounds fun but I won't ask! Just hope the game comes out then I can RP him and the other characters on DW.


Yeah, I think revising the scenario might be a good idea. Besides, it doesn't look like it'll be a big change to the main story.


Ahahaha we're still talking about BD, aren't we? I don't think we're going that off-topic.


Fffff I'm trying to advertise the game on places like Plurk. It makes me wonder if I should do a funny photoshop advert. Like those funny storyboards of Sailor Moon and Full Metal Alchemist they do on tumblr.

member_10064966
25th Jan 2013, 14:56
I still remember all the teams that were working on translations for the FM releases, was part of one of them myself until C&D's came in, haha.





I really should just move to DW, LJ's dead as ever. How's the activity over there?


I finished my last photoset on Tumblr for the game as I didn't bother taking photos of the spoiler-related stuff towards the end of the game. Been meaning to dig up the links for those to share them on here. Whatever did constitute as spoilers on there, I used strikethrough or made them easy to read around.


I'll edit this post in a few with links for my photosets people can pass around later on.


Edit:


Well, I did say I'd deliver.


First set of photos, mostly to show off the backgrounds and attention to detail in the game (http://neophoton.tumblr.com/post/39017232270/first-set-of-photos-for-bravely-default-these)


Showing off some shop menus and all that as well as some more backgrounds (http://neophoton.tumblr.com/post/39044035154/second-set-of-photos-for-bravely-default-flying)


Demonstrate and detail some of the battle system's elements (http://neophoton.tumblr.com/post/39069804400/third-set-for-bdff-attempting-to-catch-my-photo)


Showing off the Wind Shrine's boss, Ultros, the first obligatory guardian boss of the game (http://neophoton.tumblr.com/post/39092497341/this-post-should-contain-more-photos-than-what-im)


Flowell segment, for which some were informed of what goes on in the game and where my posts get more detailed (http://neophoton.tumblr.com/post/39155466711/the-city-of-flowell-a-town-known-for-its) - Ironically, this is probably the most light-hearted part of the game despite what goes on for the Red Mage subquest


Granship post, and some class details (http://neophoton.tumblr.com/post/39180010748/lost-track-of-what-set-this-is-im-really-just)


Eizenberg post details, as well as discussion of the party chat function (http://neophoton.tumblr.com/post/39256535289/photos-for-eizenberg-a-war-torn-land-its-also) - Think of it like the Tales' series skits, only they're not obnoxious


Details for the Black-Iron Blade group, including the Superstar, Chemist, and Swordsmaster classes (http://neophoton.tumblr.com/post/39221428801/almost-have-tumblr-caught-up-to-where-i-am-on-my) - Funny thing is I initially labeled the Superclass as average -- Nowadays, I'd say it's one of the best classes in the game


Obligatory airship segment (http://neophoton.tumblr.com/post/39348625318/second-half-to-the-other-post-i-should-mention)


Pirate class! Also includes detail photos for Granship's interior (http://neophoton.tumblr.com/post/39348000242/yar-har-fiddle-d-no-im-aware-that-joke-is-old) - Also you get a look at Brave Lee, Edea's papa and holder of the Paladin class, and Anazel D the Dark Knight


There's two more posts after this, but I realized I never posted a small chunk in between to Tumblr. I'll remedy that down the line, but enjoy these for now.

Oh my......I am so going to show these on Plurk! They are gorgeous!


(DW? Well, it's like old LJ. The admins on there are nicer and more willing to listen than LJ. I still occasionally go on LJ but I'm more reluctant to get paid accounts on there. It's really good for RP if you like that although I should post on my personal journal more often. XD)


Oooooh skits! (That said, skits were one of my favourite things in the Tales series. It's nice they seem to do something similar here)

But i see some grave news





"Also, in regards to localizing, I’ve this info from GameFAQs:

Square-Enix usually holds a meeting on a bimonthly basis regarding releasing products “overseas.” (EU/US) The last meeting was held mid December and Bravely Default wasn’t one of them.

I myself sometime feel bad for them as most of the people with executive powers over the localisation’s decisions have no clue/ disregard what the demand is. It may sound counter-intuitive in such a competitive market and challenging economy, however, keep in mind that here in Japan, it’s a safer bet to launch yet another card/social game (like the upcoming Final Fantasy Art collection card “game.”)

Zero risk/ Ok return. That’s their motto as it is now."


So, chances are near zero right now, they dont even consider it at all as it seems :(, it is a disaster


They probably dont even know about US/Europe exists or want this game at all


It is crazy


Grave news

Actually, that post was from quite some time ago. Here's a more recent post on it in the IGN thread:



As i told you guys before, the next meeting concerning hypothetical localisations will be mid-February.

Even if they wanted to announce something they couldn't. That's how a japanese company works. It's how stupid it has become, will let you guys know if it shows up during the meeting or not...



Don't forget Iwata mentioned the next Nintendo Direct concerning 3DS will be coming up pretty soon -- Likely February. Almost too convenient, if you ask me.


Odds are that post got overlooked because it got derailed into the usual Square Enix arguments.


Here's the other half of the Tumblr posts:


Details for Eternia, Edea's home country (http://neophoton.tumblr.com/post/41468993448/did-i-say-the-previous-post-was-the-last-i)


Second half for Eternia and some Council of Six stuff (http://neophoton.tumblr.com/post/41520158770/truly-the-final-photoset-ive-spent-the-past-ten)


Some details for Anazel D, the Dark Knight (http://neophoton.tumblr.com/post/39928620487/moderate-spoilers-for-bravely-default-flying) - Slight spoilers here, but strikethrough is applied where needed. Also reveals either the original owner of the Diary of D or Ringbell is quite the artist


Final post that leads to the final (true) ending chapter (http://neophoton.tumblr.com/post/41422729341/mass-spoilers-ahead-the-spoiler-related) - Mass spoilers as I also detail my thoughts on the true ending here, but also strikethrough is applied where relevant


Enjoy, continue to spread them around, etc. I've done my part for advertising the game and can't do much more aside from encouraging people to spread these photosets around and getting others interested in the game, considering I've beaten the game just almost a week ago.


I should add I finished the game on level 99, but I had to go out and grind some jobs at last minute because very few setups work towards the end of the game. Minus the grinding, I would've probably finished around level 92 as I really axed off every boss possible in the game instead of actually grinding.


My final party set up:


Ringabell - Dark Knight/Knight


Edea - Black Mage/Time Mage


Agnes - Summoner/White Mage


Tiz - Hunter/Superstar


Knight and Time Mage abilities were actually next to useless in the final chapter of the game, so in the event the game gets localized, I'd probably try a different setup. Superstar class makes Time Mage obsolete once you realize buffs stack (I spent most of the game assuming they don't, but that's what happens when you spend a month playing Persona 4 Golden), and is just an amazing class overall.

I did my forum update run today, keeping Bravely Default threads alive with links to the petition etc and news about the status of the game


I was wondering if some people would be interested in joining the forum campaign too, maybe help keep some of these threads alive


Then i could start some new threads about Bravely Default world/art/gameplay, adding stuff gradually, but these would require keeping alive by many since they usually go far back in a short ammount of time


So, what do you think ? I could post all the links to the forum threads i try to keep alive for starters, if someone is interested

Seems like I'm not the only person who commented on the pedophilia going on in some parts of the game, going by that NeoGAF thread. I personally enjoyed BDFF, but I admit it is a bit guilty of otaku pandering -- just not to same extent as say, the Tales games which are far worse about it -- but the entire Flowell segment is a little silly in general. At this point, I've come to realize just about everything has fanservice in it and really just give brownie points for media that avoids it when possible; otherwise, I just simply attempt to shrug it off. Depends on how much of it gets in my face before I get irked.


Personally, I didn't mind the silly parts of the game nor some of the fanservicey moments that much considering older FFs were about as guilty of it as BDFF is (FFVII's Honey Bee Inn comes to mind -- and just some of the character designs in general for females). It is true that Agnes and Edea, both of which are 17 and 15 respectively, are the butt of sexual jokes. It's why I figure the game might have some difficulty getting over, but honestly... I say wait it out until mid-February and see how it goes.


Also not too surprised people are on the same boat as me in regards to Ringabell and Edea being the ones who stole the show in terms of the main cast -- Tiz and Agnes were far less developed compared to those two (in my opinion, Tiz was ultimately static), and the fondness for our brat and amnesiac playboy reflects even in the Japanese fans.

Well, if the game does not come out for that reason, i will laugh at that for the rest of my life


I cant do anything else at such sillyness


Why not just change their ages to 18+ and get the silly part of implied pedophilia over with

There's no way BDFF will get an E rating, just saying right now. A lot of people need to understand nowadays that retailers are starting to be dogged to reinforce age restriction on products -- Hell, an ID check is often required once a product with a certain rating is scanned at checkout.



Square Enix would want a T rating because that's where the least amount of hassle is involved and that's the age group of their core audience lies at. In which -- to me -- BDFF would fall pretty well within the T-rating since most of its content settles in there. I could only think of a few scenarios that would be pushing it.

13+ for T in the US.





In Japan, CERO C, which is about roughly the T rating equivalent for NA/EU/AU, is 15+.

www.wretch.cc/blog/cloud180/26897832 (http://www.wretch.cc/blog/cloud180/26897832)

Note that the guide pics link above is supposdly containing spoilers, so click with caution



I can import it from play-asia for 33$ + shipping (50$+) and would like to know if it is worth it (which means if they have many pages with such amazing art as in these pics)

That's a lot of art, most of which I'd certainly love to have it for. However, I would imagine the artbook that came in the collector's pack contains more which is why my eyes are geared for that over anything else. Sadly, I've yet to find someone willing to part ways with their artbook.

The guide seems to have very cool art in these pages i saw, i just want to know how extensive this is in the rest of the guide, or if these are the only art pages

Bravely Default: Flying Fairy To Hit 300,000 In Sales Soon

I watched a video of the first 70 minutes of the game on Youtube, and instead of feeling excitement and hype, it just made me incredibly sad and frustrated. Everything about that game looks amazing, the UI, backgrounds, battle system, VA, music, models, EVERYTHING looked amazing.


I shouldn't be feeling sadness from an amazing new Square-Enix game, I should be excited! This should be at the forefront of Square-Enix's attention, not some half baked 10 FPS Toriyama waifu disaster.


If this game is never localized, I will have hard proof that God does not exist. When someone asks on what basis God does not exist, I will point to this thread, and they will be hard pressed to counter my argument with such irrefutable evidence.

Better start early if we are going to need 100.000 signatures just in case Square decides to never localize this game


And so far this is what we know, that they dont have any plans to localize it, as they clearly said, in fact they have moved to a sequel for Japan only again and use "All the Bravest" name for a crappy FF title


Both reduce the chances for localization to near zero already, it simply never occured to them that even one person would want the game outside Japan

Yeah, I suspect that not a lot of people are aware of Bravely Default or that it's a spiritual successor of Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light.

Between Square's localization meeting coming up within the next 2 weeks, Nintendo having another Nintendo Direct for 3DS soon, and expressing interest in bringing Japanese devs' games over.


...I wouldn't be surprised of Nintendo wounds up being the one to bring BDFF over. After all, Square really only trusts Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft when it comes to publishing their games (FFVII, DQIX, random RPGs on 360 that I can't even remember), so it's entirely within the realm of possibility.


Besides, it'd give the game a chance at dual audio. Hell knows Square Enix typically is not that good when it comes to handling direction for voice overs in their handheld games -- They barely put effort into Kingdom Hearts as it is, and that's their second best-selling franchise. BDFF would require more attention than a KH game in regards to its voice overs, and a lot of BDFF's charm comes from how well the voice overs were handled for most of its character roles (a few were pretty bleh, but again, most of the cast was fantastic).


I also could see Nintendo handling that direction better than Square would. I'd be glad to have Square Enix prove me wrong, though, but their track record for direction on voice acting in their handheld games are notoriously bad, sooo....

There's a difference though. Xenoblade, The Last Story, and Pandora's Tower were funded and published by Nintendo in Japan, while that article says they will help the other Japanese publishers deliver their games in the west.


Nintendo did this before with some of Square Enix's games: Dragon Quest IX, Dragon Quest VI, Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2, and Dragon Quest Wars (Nintendo even has its own Dragon Quest portal: dragonquest.nintendo.com). Nintendo can do the same with Bravely Default and the other Dragon Quest 3DS games.

I would love to buy the guidebook whenever I have the chance. This is one of the better and beautiful guidebooks I've seen in a long time. The price isn't that bad either. I've been studying Japanese for quite a couple of years and reading it would be further helpful for me.

BDFF is pretty easy to the point you don't need a guide. There's only one boss in particular I could think of that people would get stuck on, but once you realize the right setup, it's possible (and advised) to beat it in 2 turns flat. Even with zero damage taken, too~

I bought the guide just to have something from the game and considering the amazing art it has in some of its pages


Consider it as a tribute to the amazing art team that Square is trying to burry, in order to promote the crappy 3D FF13 series


This is a unique thing and just for this special game, which may never appear outside Japan


I have never bought a game guide for any other game :), i sometimes make use of wiki for a few titles and only after i have finished them at least 1-2 times


If the US guide (if the game ever comes to US) has the same ammount of art, will probably pay for the guide a 2ond time :), but it is not a problem since games like these are one in a billion (in fact nothing similar has appeared since FF9)


And the way Square is handling it, such games may never appear again, at least in our shores, probably not even Bravely Default

member_10064966
4th Feb 2013, 20:34
There's the off-chance that Nintendo will handle localization. If Nintendo's recent translation jobs are anything to go by, they'd probably be better at it than Square would, considering BDFF's biggest thing is having so much voiced dialogue. Square Enix doesn't even put effort into voice direction for their Kingdom Hearts games (but then KH's scripts entirely are pretty bad anyway, so that's there probabilty they acknowledge that), which is their second best-selling franchise, they would likely be even less interested in giving that same effort for a handheld title.


But as I've been saying for awhile, gotta wait another week or two to see how things go. I know it's hard to wait, but it's definitely too early to start flipping out. If nothing comes out of the localization meeting and Nintendo's upcoming Nintendo Direct for 3DS, then yes... I would suggest to start driving demand up.

It is unthinkable that they dont want Bravely Default outside Japan


The game is the return of FF9-like masterpieces of old and frankly the only thing Square should be making and focusing on

I'd still keep bugging Square Enix on Twitter and here, however. Just be polite about it (the goal is to get them to listen, after all) and make yourself easily understood. Being calm would do wonders, too.


Besides, their lesser known IPs have taken awhile longer to get announced for localization. I remember The 3rd Birthday, as horrendous as that game was, took some time before getting officially announced amongst other non-FF/KH titles.

Gamers have no patience. Square has been doing this since forever, they only announce localizations long after the game gets released in Japan, there are only a few exceptions like XIII-2/LR and their Western games. There's nothing surprising here.

Pretty much what Chrono Cross said. I mean, it's not even just a Square Enix thing either. Tales of Xillia isn't even out in North America yet (although announced and on its way), despite the sequel having already been released in Japan a few months back. I think the reason people are so worried about localization of this game is that they're looking at Type-0, whose localization was shelved because of the weak PSP market in the US, and thinking it's going to be the future of the Square Enix handheld development section.

And yet it is their only game in ages to compare to the masterpieces of old.

I wonder if the new Square administration has actually played FF7-8-9, because i dont see how they market a generic crappy game like FF13 as the actual FF, when Bravely Default is the only thing that resembles older FFs masterpieces

Generally they should get a grip, this new age crap is not FF, Bravely Default is what FF is all about

Also people's fear is very valid, if Type-0 that was a FF did not make it, the chances for Bravely Default that noone has ever heard of is zero TBH

We older gamers (unlike the new Square administration people) that have played the old masterpieces can see how amazing this game is, but small kids that just got out of university and try to run a "new age" crappy company dont see that

They probably think Beavely Default is not generic enough for new gamers


I am willing to bet that the Bravely Default team is run by one of the older people in Square and probably he had a hard time convincing them it was even worth making this game, since it is not another generic crappy game for the masses

Yes, came two days ago :) along with my Ni no Kuni Wizard edition


So, i got two amazing books the same day :)


The book is huge and very nicely made with complete info on everything, it does not have as much art pages as i thought, but even for the few it has it was well worth the price for me


Also has overviews of all the places, so that would also count as art imo


Plus it could serve as a spoiler free guide, since it has points to look for in maps but i dont see what they are :)

I can't believe there is still no word whatsoever about this game. It must have to do with the fact that there's voice acting in it, which would make it more expensive to localize. But even that makes little sense. The game had record breaking sales in Japan and got a 38/40 score by Famitsu. I'm certain that this game wouldn't only sell well in Europe & North America, but would also push 3DS sales. Nintendo should be kicking Square Enix to bring this west already. It's so frustrating when a company won't even give you the chance to throw your money at them.

I'm really hoping that the lack of an announcement only means that the localization is taking them a long time, rather than not having an interest in releasing it in the west.


It would make a lot of sense for them to bring it over though. There are a lot of "old-school" Final Fantasy fans who feel that the series has strayed too far from its roots and have lost interest in new FF titles. A game like this could recapture the interest of the older Final Fantasy fans while they continue to evolve the actual Final Fantasy series.


Not to mention that turn-based games do very well on handhelds; Pokemon, Fire Emblem, Advance Wars, Final Fantasy III, IV, etc. In my mind, the only "risk" involved is taking a chance on a new IP, but if that is their only hesitation, they could easily give it a Final Fantasy branding and capture huge market interest.

Well, a lot of games that get localized wound up having a number of voice actors do double-duty. Even in the Japanese cast for BDFF, a few of them voiced more than one character -- one of them for spoiler-related reasons.


They could easily just have English voice actors double over for more minor characters -- And truth be told, most of the dialogue in the game comes from the main party (that's including Airy who is considered the 5th main character, albeit non-playable) and the Council of Six/Six Council/whatever you wanna call them. Everyone else is a bit smaller in a role.


Shame though, I regret not buying the collector's pack and now the only way to get it is to deal with people overpricing the hell out of them on eBay -- In all honesty, I just want the artbook. If Square Enix can provide that in the NA release, I'd willingly throw more money at them.

So I know I'm not alone in this feeling. JRPG releases from SE look pretty non-existant right now. I know there's things in the works, that just haven't been announced yet, but 2013 is looking pretty grim in regards to my favorite developer/publisher.

So here's an idea! Let's stop wasting all of the efforts pumping out cellphone/tablet games, and put some work into localizing an already FANTASTIC game that has been very well received in Japan? Give us Bravely Default: Flying Fairy!

We want it, Square. WE.WANT.IT. WE.WILL.BUY.IT. Please just give us the chance!

Normally, I'm not so obnoxious about my wants from game companies. This is my thread asking for something like this, but I read an article today on Kotaku, that encouraged JRPG fans to get loud. So, that's what I'm doing.

I know I'm not alone in this feeling; who else feels this way?



A lot of people have come to doubt SE, and a lot of people are thinking this company has lost it's spark, and it's power to make great games..... but I still believe. I'm still here, waiting for the next great thing from this company, faithfully buying your games that come out ever-so infrequently now. We are still here, Square-Enix, now do something to make us diehard fans proud!

Square Enix not loose the hands on her works but just seen sometimes lost on your decisions,so many people are askin for Type 0 but not obtain answers,some people want Bravely Default but no answer to,we want more Versus XIII work information,just pictures or a fast vĂ*deo and they just not return back,at same time they are doing great games,but this silence make me feel bad...

Maybe we should start begging square to make more and more terrible Lighting games. Perhaps that will make them finally drop the whole FFXIII mess since they seem to be working solely on titles that don't hold any interest for the majority of their loyal fanbase.

I just can't get into playing long games on my phone because I need the battery for actual phone related things.... so that's why I wave them off. I do realize how profitable, they are, though. I just wish we could get some investment by them in porting games that NA and EU are calling for.

All JRPGs that square enix THINKS will fail in the us should at least be considered for "test pilot sales." In other words, produce PC versions and 300,000 copies to each foreign country. As for advertising, spend a limited amount on commercial primetime spots. If PC units sell well, than produce twice as much for console, including commercials and ads. If sales suck, stop production and make the pc version a digital download.

I've no longer access to my GBA games, so a 3DS remake for FFV would be pretty awesome.


I was personally okay with the style for BDFF, but then FFIII is my favorite of the original NES FFs, so you can imagine my delight for that DS remake. Similar style and what not.

Actually Bravely Default seems like one of the most unique games and no system has a game like that at all


Of course i would instantly buy any of Chaos Rings 1-2, FF 7-8-9 or Bravely Deault, should any of them ever appeared on 3DS


But Bravely Default is one of my most wanted games of all time

i havent played FF: 4 heroes of light. but i have been told that bravely default is a spiritual successor, in many ways, and for some reason it couldnt be a direct sequel, and you dont have to play the 4 heroes of light first. i know that tons of people on the gamefaqs msg boards were really excited about this game getting released over here, but there still hasnt been any word as far as i know.

has anyone heard anything yet?

Technically, the announcement says that Nintendo is working WITH Square Enix to publish the game overseas. It's probably just that with all of the games Square Enix has coming over, they don't have the time or money to effectively publish the game by themselves. They have KH 1.5, Lightning Returns, and X|X-2 HD all due out this year in both countries (although obviously KH is already out in Japan), plus work on XIV: A Realm Reborn and the apparent reveals being set up for Versus. And that's just the announced stuff, who knows if there's more? Even with all of that, there's still the potentially separate PS4 title (as Versus is not yet confirmed to be jumping platforms) and the company's restructuring efforts. There's only so much a company can do at once.
