No idea, SE of Japan didn't show gameplay footage or has set release window yet so don't expect it any time soon.

Plenty of screen shots and even demos in Japan, but nothing State-side yet. The game looks ready for later this year in Japan, so I'm guessing if it comes overseas, expect it next year.

I definitely hope it does come here, I love the art-style of the game, and the old-school feeling.


Reminds me of a better 4 Heroes of Light, which I also enjoyed.

It feels more like tactics or chibi FF12 than a classic FF . No will be able to capture the presence of old NES FFs especially FF1.

Doesn't need to, but 4 Heroes of Light reminded me a lot of FFV, and this one looks to improve on that.

As you can tell, im really excited about this new game that Square-Enix staff is making.
So far, it is one of the 3 reasons i really want a 3DS, being the other 2 Kingdom Hearts and Resident Evil.
The graphics, the soundtrack, the characters style and art style, have been one of the best i have seen so far, the chibi art style combined with the soo serious looking monsters have always attracted my attention...
Maybe i like this game to much cause it reminds me of the original Final Fantasy Tactics(War of the Lions) a lot, but i want to hear your thoughts about the game, and if anyone has news about this game being ported to US, i would gladly appreciate the great news.

Worst title in Square Enix history is my first thought....

Automaton
19th Jun 2012, 18:43
The game is, in essence, a spiritual sequel to The Four Heroes of Light. I found that game enjoyable (for what I could understand, since I imported it), so I'm looking forward to seeing how Bravely Default will turn out.


Funny comment I saw recently through my SEMJP profile, though: Bravely default = to courageously not pay your mortgage?

DerekMaverick
19th Jun 2012, 19:10
I thought it had been named Bravely Default: Flying Fairy because they wanted to get away from using Final Fantasy. But personally I feel like it's a little bit of a dumbed down FF game.

Automaton
19th Jun 2012, 20:10
The ideal of a "dumbed down" Final Fantasy game was how I approached Four Heroes, but it isn't necessarily a bad thing in my opinion.


The two games have very similar art style and character designs, as seen through early trailers.

DerekMaverick
19th Jun 2012, 20:21
It also looks a lot like the 3D remake of FFIII on the DS/PSP.

MagiusNecros
19th Jun 2012, 21:45
The music off the site is DAMN good if I do say so myself.





The game has a job system as well and I get reminded of FFV in some cases so I might pick this game up.





IF IT GETS LOCALIZED.





Anything that looks good in my eyes just gets little notice.

She... kinda does, actually. And the most recently revealed character (the one dressed in red) is an "Edea" on top of that.

When I first saw the game I thought the use of the AR Viewer was interesting. I had been waiting for a developer to incorporate that feature into a game. As for the game itself, I really like it. The visuals are reminiscent of the cutscenes from the Psp version of FF Tactics: WOTL. Hand drawn and beautiful.

Hey everyone! Has anyone heard of the new game Bravely Default: Flying Fairy? I have seen the trailers and it seems so marvelous. I want to have it so badly. It is said that this game is a tradtional RPG game, and it is a spin off of The 4 Heroes of Light. The story takes place in Luxendarc, the land of light and shadow. Many countries exist in this land, one of which was home to Tiz Oria until it was devastated by a disaster that left a giant hole on the continent and Tiz the only survivor. Other countries include , Rakuriika home to the Wind Crystal shrine and known for its large clock and sands.
There are jobs in this game.

You could be:

1) White Mage
2) Black Mage
3) Monk
4)Knight

Is anyone excited for this game? Cause I certainly am ^~^!

I'm a huge fan of Akihiko Yoshida's character designs and was really looking forward to playing something new with his mark all over it. I guess it's easier for me to learn Japanese than for someone else to localize the game though.

In a recent interview with Tomoya Asano of Square Enix, he stated that they have no plans to localize Bravely Default: Flying Fairy. All hope is not lost as he said:


“keep talking about it on Facebook and Twitter, and keep watching for new info from [them].”


So plans could change, we just have to be very loud about wanting the game. So scream to the heavens that they shall open the Japanese floodgates and allow the amazing games to pour into the lands of America, Europe, and beyond! SHOUT IT MY WESTERN BROTHERS! LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD FROM THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF THE SQUARE ENIX STRONGHOLD THAT THEY WILL GRACE US WITH THIS GAME!...

This is starting to get extremely annoying. SE is treating the rest of the world like chopped liver, while keeping many wanted main-stream games away from foreign shores! (My apologies to anyone who likes liver!) I want to play Type-0 and BD: FF in ENGLISH if I get the chance, and would certainly pay money to do so! I'm not entirely thrilled about going to have to learn Japanese just so I can enjoy some video games that interest me. That seems like it will be the case, however.

It is funny you say liver. Just ate some fried chicken liver with lots of hot sauce on top http://na.square-enix.com/tools/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-embarassed.gif. Baby beef liver is also good, but it is a little more chewy and has a different taste.

Yes, please bring Bravely Default: Flying Fairy to North America. Moreover, it does NOT need the name "Final Fantasy" in it, just because it is the spiritual successor to Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light. I used to be a staff member of Operation Rainfall, and though I am no longer involved with the campaign due to time issues from my injuries, I am all for a Bravely Default localization.

Why? Who said that it's its only chance of an English localization? Tomoya Asano commented on an English localization before in a past interview and he's still considering it. He's worried if the humor in the cutscenes are maintained through localization and whether it is a good solution for them to do so without backfiring. They told us to keep checking their Facebook/Twitter updates.


Here is the original text from the interview.

FINAL FANTASY Type-0's situation is a bit different. The PSP has had high piracy rates from their previous titles especially from the DISSIDIA series and it's one reason that discourages SQUARE ENIX from localizing them. Unfortunately even the PS Vita was cracked. The firmware updates help but it doesn't take too long for hackers to crack it. It's the people who's contributing to these negative factors whom are pathetic.

Thats a high caliber title for a handheld. Its just a buisness and they don't wanna mess with bringing these great Jrpgs cuz they feel its not pointed toward the US audience. all they see is $$$.

If I have to resort to importing, I would also have to wait until their prices drop since importing isn't cheap to begin with. Probably until then, maybe that's when an English release is announced. Hypothetically speaking that is.

It is getting increasingly hard not to get depressed when nearly 90% of the JRPGs and especially the 2D artistic ones i want never come outside Japan


Bravely Default is the worst case, since it looks so beautifull and unique and is crazy to have a 3DS and not be able to play that game

Yes I agree. Square Enix is primarily known for their JRPGs and they are generally much better at making them than most other publishers. I mean, those are what made me interested in Squaresoft (now Square Enix) to begin with. I'm sure most of us must have had similar backgrounds in gaming preferences.

Yes, it really sucks that Final Fantasy Type-0 wasn't released in the West and I think that Square Enix should have released it. Yes, they are trying too hard to put in Western influences. However, Square Enix are not stupid. If we make a loud enough noise, if we convince them that there are enough people in the West who want the game, if we convince them that it'll be worth spending the money to translate and localise Bravely Default in the US, Europe and Australia, they will do it.

Nice to meet you Emmy19! I hope the game comes over to Europe and Australia as well. The job designs are very beautiful just like the ones in my signature. Yup that's right, Asano's still considering it at the moment being.

Hopefully FINAL FANTASY Type-0 gets localized as well.

I rarely post anything on the Internet even if I am interested in it. I just sit back and let people fight amongst themselves about inconsequential topics. However, not even I can let this one slide. Square Enix, if you are listening, I hope you will excuse me for not holding my tongue but this is the bottom line:


Bravely Default: Flying Fairy was a game that sold 3DS systems in Japan.


It was simply what many veteran RPG players and new players could play and discover just like the games of old. Now, I haven't played the game myself, but I know that I speak for many gamers here in the West when I say, we will pay you money for localizing this game to other regions around the world. So, please SquareEnix, localized Bravely Default for the 3DS to the rest of the world!

P.S. If you want more money, you also may want to consider putting together a nice deluxe or collector's set for the game if you decide to localize it to the rest of us. We in North America especially will throw money at you for a nice package with a great game. Thanks again for your consideration.

"Not the 2D DS Ni no Kuni though, the 2D art is the thing i want the most from this game and PS3 version does not have it"






Ah, okay. Never mind, then. XD






"It doesnt hurt, it just doesnt do anything. "






Welp. It might, it might not. I certainly don't think it'll work alone - it'll need other things as well like people asking Square Enix here, bumping this thread, pestering them on places like Twitter and IDK maybe bringing the game up at cons or such. Square just need to be convinced that the game will be worth localizing in the West. And, being a business company, it wouldn't make sense if they thought it could make a profit but decide not to sell it anyway. Last time I remember, the fact Capcom were convinced that Ace Attorney Investigations 2 wouldn't make a decent profit in the West was the reason they haven't localised it yet (and we probably won't see it for a good while, unfortunately).

There is a rumour that it almost finished translating and then they pulled back because PSP sales were diminishing in the West. IDK if the rumour is true or not but it wouldn't surprise me (I live in the UK and majority of PSP titles I've seen in stores are now second-hand. I can't speak for the rest of Europe, Australia or the US though).

I'm not sure how tons of voice acting would hinder the game being released. They might decide to just do English voice-acting like they do with most games and release them with other language subtitles like they do with most other games (with exceptions like Kingdom Hearts - the Germans and French were lucky enough to be able to provide their own actors).


I think that the likelihood is that this game will be released but it'll be quite a while. I heard that most Square Enix handheld games take a while to release? (FF: 4 Heroes of Light took a year to come out). With the exception of games like Dissidia.


Obviously, if BD takes a year to come out in the West, that would really suck but coming out in a year is better than not coming out at all.

I literally just registered on here so I can say I want this game released in the West. I am sick and tired of Square constantly milking the FF cow for all its worth, releasing new games in their FF13 series and not telling us about this game which sold EXTREMELY WELL IN JAPAN and has a sequel already planned.


The producer of the game said they had no plans but wanted people to make noise on social networks, and I've done my part and I'm sure everyone else has. I don't understand why game companies don't offer feedback on localization requests or look at how good games do in Japan, and as a result we have to start pulling teeth and nails to get these things brought here.


Open your freaking eyes, Square. Stop putting out stupid social games and iOS games and look at what is sitting right in front of you being ignored because you're staring at Lightning from FFXIII instead. There is POTENTIAL IN THIS GAME AND YOU DO NOT REALIZE IT. BRING IT TO THE US AND EUROPE.

Yeah I agree as well. When it comes to games like these, the localization process is generally about a year or so.

I'm sorry I sound so arrogant but it just really really annoys me when there is zero feedback from a company regarding localizations. I've grown impatient because companies like G.REV with their new 3DS game have not provided anything on the status of localization besides "we don't have plans at the moment." Companies SHOULD think about localization when they see a game that is doing well in Japan and has a following on the Internet in the US/EU. It just drives me up the wall that all Square is doing is announcing stupid iOS ports and sequels no one wants, while blatantly ignoring the elephant in the room.

Another case of a company focusing on corporate stupidity over the needs of their audience. Square is seriously becoming the equivalent of Namco in terms of refusing us news on localizations of games that are INSANELY GOOD and are doing incredibly well in Japan. Dragon Quest fans can attest to this as they have not said ANYTHING AT ALL about bringing DQX, DQ Monsters 3D or the new DQVII remake.


I will do everything in my power to tell them we want this game, if it has to come to me spamming their Twitter with a bot or flooding their email inbox then I will do that. It's absolutely absurd that they think people will want to hear news on their dumb iOS ports (why did they even port Theathrythm!? The game was SUPPOSED TO BE A 3DS EXCLUSIVE) and whatever stupid FFXIII sequel they're churning out instead of a very good handheld title.


The fact of the matter is that Square Enix US/EU does not seem to care at all about handheld properties outside of Kingdom Hearts as of now, and doesn't want to even localize things like the PSP version of FFIII or Type-0 because all they care about is mobile phone games, since clearly mobile phones are the *future of gaming*. And they NEED TO CARE.


I have never liked Kotaku at all (some of their articles like the "Sword Art Online is a smart anime!" one are enough to make me scoff), but the article about BD I actually agree with for once because it IS frustrating to have a company jump over the bestselling Japanese titles that could potentially do well here. If that All The Bravest trademark is a gigantic troll for some dumb iOS game or them announcing just the browser game and never announcing the 3DS game until the browser game is popular enough (which will never work out), I will never buy from Square Enix again. Ever.

I honestly know nothing about game companies work. Still, if what the guy on the forum says is true, then I think we have to work a lot harder to get the game released and I stick to the belief that we need to make more noise to get the game out over here.


I am curious to know what the All The Bravest trademark is, though.

It is not unnatural for an announcement on localization to take a few month's time, but I truly hope Bravely Default: Flying Fairy is on the list to bring to North America and Europe. And if the title needs to be changed, you don't need to add Final Fantasy to it for it to sell, trust you me.

I'd prefer it if they kept the same title. I agree with you FreeRPGer. I mean, it's going to be the series name. Bravely Default: Praying Brage already came out in Japan for the PC Browser, and Asano is already planning on a sequel. Perhaps even more games from that series along the way.

Petitions are not going to work at all, I signed the change.org one and it doesn't have nearly enough signatures to be noticed. What we need to do is spread the word.

I too, have joined solely to express my desire for Square Enix to localise Bravely Default: Flying Fairy for a release in the west. I believe that Bravely Default is one of the top tier 3DS games currently available and it would be an incredibly stupid decision of Square Enix to not localise this game.


I respect that Square Enix might have doubts about releasing a JRPG not called "Final Fantasy" but erm...they could just rename this game to Bravely Default: Final Fantasy in the west (it would also tie in with the title for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII quite nicely). Then if it sells well enough to justify localisation of the upcoming sequel(s), then the Final Fantasy subtitle can be dropped in favour of the new games' subtitle. This could probably help as well, considering how fairies have more of a girly western connotation and it might be hard to sell a game wth "Fairy" in its name.


In terms of the voice acting, I can see why they might think having to cast actors to each role and then record all the dialogue to be a very costly move (it will be). However, why not keep the dialogue, but have subtitles in the game's native language? Lots of other games have been doing that lately and I have no problem with it at all.

member_10706996
1st Jan 2013, 15:18
Actually "Flying Fairy" is the subtitle and it's pretty significant towards the overall plot of Bravely Default: Flying Fairy.

In the past, Square Enix released The World Ends with You despite being a new IP coinciding along mainstream SQ titles and it still became pretty successful. As long as it has the Square Enix logo on the boxart, and many people are familiar with Square Enix to begin with, that alone will make them curious to check it out; read game reviews, etc.

McSlig
1st Jan 2013, 15:21
I just want to echo everybody's sentiments, we need this game to be relased in North America & Europe! I'm still hopeful that we'll see this get localized, since SE was willing to bring over most of their handheld titles in the DS era. The World Ends With You was a new title and ended up being successful for them. On top of that, Bravely Default sold so well that they had to rush out a digital download in Japan just to keep up with demand. A lot of people use Type-0 as a sign that we're not getting anything from SE, but in my mind it was more due to the PSP being phased out for the Vita than simply corporate hesitation.

There's a lot of talk about whether the name needs changing or not. I don't think it needs the Final Fantasy moniker to be successful or even should have it. The project was consciously developed to be a new franchise, after starting as a spiritual successor to 4 Heros of Light, and it would really be great to see this become the new series that handles the "classic" Final Fantasy feel while the true FF titles continue to evolve. About the Flying Fairy subtitle, if there is concern about the connotation of the word fairy, simply changing it to faerie would likely remove any negative light and give it that fantasy-world feel.

Rambling aside, please guys, bring this gem overseas!

Indeed. I agree. The title should be left as is, even in North America. But I fear that Squenix thinks that no JRPG will sell in North America without the name "Final Fantasy" in it. S.E. should learn from Atlus or XSEED. Just manufacture the game in small quantities at first, is all. SEE how it sells.

FreeRPGer
1st Jan 2013, 16:13
.....and, continued from my earlier comment, the only reason I said I hope they keep the Final Fantasy name out of it is, because, like Tony said, Bravely Default: Flying Fairy is actually a spiritual successor to Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light. I simply feel that the game has a strong enough name as it is. Plus there are MANY people that want this game here in North America (and Europe). We recognize the name already. It doesn't meed to be changed.


SE only tries to see what title fits into a North American audience. face it; JRPGs are niche here. Don't change the name on our account. We know what it is and what we want.

McSlig
1st Jan 2013, 17:02
Yeah exactly, it should be able to stand on its own, provided it actually gets released here. But they would be crazy not to, after the ridiculous sales in Japan, and considering the fact that JRPGs do very well on handhelds in general. My belief is that we're just being impatient on an eventual announcement, but how long have we got to wait?

It's pretty interesting how the Mana and SaGa series used to be called Final Fantasy Adventure and Final Fantasy Legend respectively and then they've eventually branched into their own individual series with their own name. We're also seeing the same happening to Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light (Japanese Name: The 4 Heroes of Light: Final Fantasy Gaiden), where Bravely Default is its spiritual successor.

I think I'll give it a year before I start really worrying about Bravely Default: Flying Fairy not being localized because it took Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light about a year later to release. Most games aren't announced so early like Fire Emblem: Awakening unless under special circumstances like the XIII series. But to be on the safe side, I will continue supporting Bravely Default, spreading the word, and I hope the petitions/etc. become successful.

What I really like about Asano and the developers is that they actively listen to fan feedback about the game. Japan previously had demos for Bravely Default: Flying Fairy and they've heard the complains of fans such as slow walking or slow fighting and they've attempted to change that. They've also previously had a questionnaire for Japanese fans about what they should improve or include in the next game. They even love the fanart fans tweeted to them. Actually, I posted this a while back, the Japanese BDFF Twitter reblogged my fanart and thanked me I was a participant in California.
twitter.com/BDFF_OFFICIAL/status/2624386... (https://twitter.com/BDFF_OFFICIAL/status/262438656378294273)

I really want to thank "Bring Bravely Default: Flying Fairy to the West" and "Operation Brave" for the continuing support and interest in Bravely Default as well as the Square Enix NA Twitter following the JP Bravely Default Twitter. Hopefully it does make an impact in furthering the chances of localization in some form or another.

Yeah, I'll give it either a year or someone saying that they're not going to release it in the West for whatever reason before I start worrying. The only bother I'll have it coming out a year after its Japanese release is somebody spoiling it for me on the Internet without any warning beforehand.

Let's hope someone from SE is watching this thread.


I think BD:FF has a good chance to sell pretty well in the west (probably even better than KH: DDD). It sold well in the japanese with very little (if any) promotion and with a supply constraint, this is the SE's first new IP since Radiata Stories that sells that well. Hell, the secondhand copies for BD:FF is still being sold for a very high price. This shows how much people want this game.





As a global company, SE's lack of localization is quite disturbing. While Type 0 might not get a localization since the platform it's in, the PSP, is pretty much 6 feet under, the 3DS is a very healthy platform. Sure, Heroes of Ruin (and KH: DDD to a lesser extent) didn't sell very well. But that doesn't mean that the 3DS is a hard market. It's just mean that the games(s) was(were) lacking. BD:FF's performance in Japan shows that SE could gain lots of money in this platform.





SE did great for the DS by releasing various great games globally. Why not do the same now for the 3DS. You know you want our money, and you damn well know that we would be more than glad to give it to you. Just release the things that we want.

Someone has said a thing about english voice act.
You guys really think this is necessary?
I'm the only one who actually finds Japanese voice acting way more interesting and emotive?

I think they should keep the japanese voice acting, just put some english subs over it and its ok!
The problem of "losing the mood on the game" would be halfway solved.

Most games that are localized have been voiced with English and plus that's what Asano was worrying about. I didn't say they necessarily have to but I honestly wouldn't mind either way.

Been playing the game in Japanese for awhile and must say... it's impressive and reminds me a lot of Final Fantasy IX -- in a good way, considering that's my favorite game of all time. Square, it's taken you well over a decade to make a game that matches that calibur, don't let it go to waste.


In terms of voice overs: Yes, there is a hefty amount of voice work involved, with such a large cast of characters. Most of the dialogue does come from the main characters themselves, and a select few other characters. The mass majority do play relatively minor parts, so it's a matter of them casting the right people for the four main characters as they'll be doing the majority of the dialogue alone.


I will comment that the voice overs in the game are amazingly well done, more so from the main characters themselves. I've been mostly impressed with Ami Koshimizu (Agnes) and Ryota Takeuchi (Ringabell) the most so far, but the other two aren't slouches either by any means.


There's also a massive amount of text involved, more so than I thought there would be. Then again, the game's closing in on 70 hours for me and I'm not even done with the game. I assumed it would have been a ~50 hour game, however, so it's been exceeding my expectations in length (not a bad thing by any means!).


As silly as it seems, I'd implore Square to keep the title Bravely Default, seeing as how the developers have stressed their interest in tying gameplay to story -- That is to say, the title derives from the gameplay itself, as many people are aware of. Similarly, there's other elements that tie gameplay and story together (Diary of D is the biggest example) and I feel it's more of the developers' wish to keep that in tact. Besides, saves the need to edit promotional art of the logos and what not.

They should go for the full English audio, because pretty much every Square title has had it. I can live with Japanese voiceovers for only so long.

I'm pretty relaxed about English dubs and there are only a few that really irritate me. Still, I would be perfectly happy whether they keep the Japanese audio or dub it in English.

I really, really want this game (I didn't start Operation Brave for nothing).





In regards to voice acting, they can keep the Japanese dialogue if it saves them a lot of time and money.


As for the not being called "Final Fantasy" argument, they can rename it to "Bravely Default: Final Fantasy" for all I care. Obviously I would prefer it if the "Flying Fairy" subtitle remained, but if a compromise has to be made with the title to get the game released here, I'd be okay with it.


If they think it would be too much of a financial risk to release it in a physical form, they can release it digitally on the Nintendo eShop.





I don't mind how it happens, but I want to be able to play Bravely Default: Flying Fairy. There is no 3DS game I am more hyped for. Please people, help this happen (http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/operation-brave-square-enix-bring-bravely-default-flying-fairy-to-the-west) and follow us on twitter.com/ (Twitter and Facebook (www.facebook.com/OperationBrave) to show your support.

my point exactly.. just get it into the hands of us here in the west.. its lame that square is starving us of good rpgs :(. ALSO pokemon X and Y were just announced and those games are system sellers.. the 3DS is bigger than ever in the west.. to not bring over bravely default would be foolish to say the least.





not releasing and localizing this game is western suicide because alot of people are really losing faith in square enix. especially after games like FF type 0 slipped thru the crakcs.. now they are going to let another gem go by the wayside.. its the saddest thing i have ever seen





COMON PEOPLE KEEP THIS LOCALIZATION ALIVE.. tell everyone you know and sign every petition you can find.. and keep this thread prominent on these forums.. maybe someone over there is smart enough to be watching the fan outcry for thios game.. let it be known that YOU WANT BRAVELY DEFAULT FLYING FAIRY!!!

Not necessarily. Especially not after the 'possible international release' bit, since it means that Asano has not ruled out the idea (otherwise, he would have said "No plans" and left it at that). Although I do admit that if it does come out, it probably won't for at least a year but oh well. :(


Still, they will be more inclined if we give them a nudge. Keep poking Square Enix, everyone! Whether it's on the "Anticipated games for 2013" thread (BD is mentioned on there a lot but it wouldn't hurt if it's mentioned more!), signing the petition (It's only at 675 sigs, guys.

I am around every single forum i can find, making threads and posts about Bravely Default and showing both the page here and the petition


But it is not that easy to do Square's job in advertising the game, if there is ZERO awareness from the public from their side, not even a hint the game is coming or a US website or any press coverage at all, how are we expected to gather people around a game few know it even exists


That is the feeling i get so far, surly everyone that knows the game and has seen it, wants it, thus almost every post in the thread here and the other thread asking what people want has Bravely Default listed, but that is as far as it goes, because those that dont even know it exists cant bother with a petition that also asks for their names and addresses


And on top of that few people even bother going to a thread about something they have never heard of or does not have any coverage at all


To sum up, the chances to see the game in US are close to zero right now, not only there is not even a slight hint, they have also moved to the sequel and after all the posts here they have not even given a slight comment


It is laughable, i am starting to feel like a beggar

IDK. I personally don't think three months is enough to start worrying yet unless it's a big name title like the main FF series, Dragon Quest or Kingdom Hearts. I can accept that Bravely Default probably isn't on the top of the SE localization team's list right now and am happy to wait a year before it comes out, if it ever does. If not, I guess I'll just have to import it. * sob *


That said, I'm still not convinced that the fact that they are planning a sequel is enough to indicate a "NO LOCALIZATION FOR YOU! LOL" yet. Especially as I'm pretty sure that the developers aren't in charge of the localization (correct me if I'm wrong, someone). I'm not trying to be a naive optimist, but doing nothing and giving up won't help either.


I do admit that we could do with some more people being interested in the game. And it's not just petitions or bumping the topic. Maybe more articles talking about it and linking them here or elsewhere? IDK.

Sure, we should not let Square know we want the game badly so early, so we have below zero chances to ever get it


Right now they are moving to the sequel, which means the chances to come have already dropped to zero, since the team is making something else and probably would never take that project of adding the translated text


So, how about we panic right now, since chances for the game to come outside Japan are down to zero right now

Emmy19-699054
14th Jan 2013, 18:06
If it's getting translated, the chances are it won't be the team that made the game who is translating it (ESPECIALLY if they are working on a sequel. There are exceptions, though. I may have remembered this wrong but I think some of FF IX's original team had some hand in translating the game but that's because they spoke pretty good English. Translating stuff is really hard. * sobs *). Correct me if I'm wrong but it's usually different teams who work with making the games and localising them. ESPECIALLY if the producers themselves don't speak English. Otherwise I don't think even games like KH or the main numbered FF titles would come outside Japan. How much work would that be?


My memory's a bit foggy but the last time I remember, AAI2 not getting released outside Japan didn't actually have anything to do with the people who actually made the game. I'm not that familiar with the workings of how games are produced and localised so someone please correct me if I'm wrong.


Bravely Default might not come out over here. But if it doesn't I'm pretty sure it won't be because of the sequel. It'll probably be because the sales are worth the money that Square has to give to the guys who are translating and the guys who are localising.

I would have agreed with you if they didn't add the "Keep talking about it and An international release was possible" bit (and Asano wouldn't have said that if there really was 0% chance. What would he have to gain from lying?) . Also, last time I checked, the interview was in October. Things could have changed since then either way. I can't tell and neither can you.


And really, the sequel, random PC game and the site registration don't really prove anything.


I get your frustration though since SE HAVE made terrible localisation decisions. :/

That said this announcement is practically a troll because most of us assumed it meant a US release of the game because of "All The Bravest"...great marketing Square.

To be fair, one can only wait so long before a company decides a title isn't viable anymore for localizing. Just look at Type-0, even if it's the issue that PSP was dying in the West.


I'd say give them until March - April before full-on rattling their cages.

I won't be buying anything from Square Enix until they say something about Bravely Default, then.


That's easy to do because 1) I don't care for FF and 2) I don't care for Eidos titles.

I'd like to have Bravely Default and Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix. I don't care much for the other SE titles, even though I did love FF XIII and XIII-2 (there's nothing about Lightning Returns that has caught my interest yet although it's early days, to be fair).

face it. Square gave a big F u to the people who want actual rpgs from them






Exactly, if they had any intention to bring Bravely Default over we would have known by now, they simply dont care


And they have proven they dont for so many years now, so i wonder why people atually dont worry and are waiting for a miracle to happen in E3 or in 2014 or whenever, it simply wont come and that is that

E3 has not happened yet, it's been a month or so since the game has been out in Japan. WAIT AND SEE and quit being all doomsday about it. I can't believe people are giving up hope when an announcement turned out to not be what they hoped for. Just cut it out.

Actually they lose hope because of all the years passed since Type-0, Ni no Kuni DS, Grand Knight History etc etc etc never appeared outside Japan and now is rather clear that another one will never come and it is called Bravely Default


All we are getting for sure is crappy stuff like FF13 series and ports to iOS


And the dead last place Bravely Default would be revealed is in E3, it is not even a FF game and is on a handheld

Ni no Kuni DS and Type-0 were on systems from the last generation. Grand Knights History was canceled for reasons we probably don't know. Bravely Default is on a system from this current generation and has only been out in Japan for a couple of months. Have some **** patience for once. Square Enix's NA Twitter is following the Japanese twitter for Bravely Default and is probably aware of the stink we're making over it.

No reason ? LOL


That was the same thing people that wanted Type-0 said initially


But Bravely Default is even worst case


- there is a sequel already coming, the team has moved on


- all the bravest is not for Bravely Default


- it is not a FF and has not got as much exposure


- Square has proven 1000% that does not care at all and in the slightest and only care for the hot cash and dont give a ... for their fans


- they are focused on iOS


.


I can list another 1000 reasons, if you like


And again, there is zero chance such a game would be revealed in E3, it is not even a FF and is a handheld game, E3 is for the big selling stuff like FF13 etc

Nasos, I don't mean any offense (and I apologise if I do seem like it) by this but none of those are good reasons to throw up our hands and say that "There's no way it's coming out. I'm done." Some of them I admit are reasons to worry (and I am worried) but not to give up.

I am in this thread and I care because I WANT THIS GAME LOCALIZED. I've been interested in it ever since it was first announced, just like how I was interested in Xenoblade. I want to make noise about this game socially online like Asano said, and myself and several other people will not stop until we get what we want, and we are convinced we will get it.


I don't care for Type-0 being localized because I am not a big Final Fantasy fan and, shock and horror, I like Square Enix games and don't really actually care much about Final Fantasy. There are way more games Square Enix has than the FF franchise and Bravely Default is more in the line of classic FF without being an FF game. Original games like this NEED to be localized over the same old franchises every company releases.


You can call me delusional and laugh at me if you want, but there are hundreds of other people who are just as "delusional" and want this game here too. That's why we're continuing to fight to get this game out in the West.

Obviously i did mentioned FF-TYpe-0 as one game that did not make it outside Japan, not as a game that should


It is one of the most glowing examples that Square will not bring a game over, no matter what and how many fans are asking


So far there is nothing on Bravely Default, so assuming their history there is less than zero chance for a western release


So, excuse me if i am a bit upset, it is not every day that developers come up with a game with such art/world and Square trying to burry the masterpiece and discredit the team and their unbelievable work


I think the main issue is that releasing such a masterpiece that reminds the glory of old, inevitably will make people see how terrible FF13 is in comparrisson and maybe that has an impact on its sales and maybe that is the reason they wont even mention the game

Okay, Nasos, I think we're just going to have to agree to disagree on whether there is "zero chance". So I'm going to drop that debate. Besides, regardless of what we think, we all want the game to come out in the West. So I'm going to concentrate on persuading SE to bring the game to the West.

Well, i try to hold back too in general, i only act so emotional now because of the recent frustration finding out all the bravest was for another iOS game than the game that needed to be

We could host a site somehwere, so we can see al contributions





Also in case Square never brings the game, we should consider starting a kickstarter and someone or more peoplr that know japanene create a translation of everything in the game. If 1000 people give 20$ (which i would gladly do, in fact would give 50$ for that easilly) or more, would be a sum of 20.000$ for the translators.


Since the poor Square "cant afford" that ammount, i think would be nice to turn it to an indie project and just buy japanese 3DS and import the game

I have yet to hear anything of Atlus bringing BD over. But because you said that, another idea springs to mind. Pandora's Tower is now going to be released in the US, thanks to XSEED. There are also companies like NIS America who help bring games over to the West. Maybe we can nudge them about Bravely Default (I know a couple of BD suggestions have been made on the XSeed forums).


That said, XSEED tries to bring games to America rather than the West (us Brits got Pandora's Tower months ago). Still, it's worth a shot!

19th Jan 2013, 04:15
As far as I know, no company has ever published any Square Enix owned game in the west other than Square Enix themselves and Nintendo (the recent Dragon Quest games), so I highly doubt Atlus or XSEED will do this.

Emmy19-699054

If people really want their attention, do what the staff for the game said to do if you want to drive up demand for a localization: Nag them on Twitter like no tomorrow as well as anywhere they might look at. They've responded to me on the NA Twitter account a few times before, but that's with vanilla responses and kind of the result of just one person. I'm sure with more people, they'd take it seriously.


I'd even ask a Kotaku editor to keep making articles to drum up interest like they were doing awhile back. The game would likely sell well if it got enough coverage on sites that cover gaming, considering Xenoblade was rather successful for the amount of attention it got for being a RPG that's not Pokemon or Final Fantasy.


Ni no Kuni as well has been at the top of Amazon's charts recently for games, and it's likely due to how much attention it got before hand. Word-by-mouth could work wonders as well.

100% agreed. I've tried to bring it up a few times on Plurk. Although there are a limited number of times I can do that without sounding annoying or harrassing people. XD

I have made a thread in every possible gaming forum with many people visiting and keeping them alive


I have see that move the petition forward a bit, but not by much


And as you said is hard to keep the same stuff alive, maybe i should make more generic threads about Bravely Default, with info etc, ut that requires a lot of work


I plan to start doing a very well done post today, with all info i can find, best videos and pics etc and start posting it around
