Bravely Default "Now that's an RPG" - Square Enix Interview with RPG Land

Producer Tomoya Asano: Well, Square Enix is, fundamentally, an RPG company, producing entries in popular series like Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, among others. RPGs are a very traditional genre, with established conventions, and recently, it seems like the number of conventional RPGs is decreasing. We want to protect that, and continue producing true RPGs. There are also many fans who want traditional RPGs, so that’s what we aim to produce. We want people to be able to look at the games we make and say “Now THAT’S an RPG!”

I had seen quite a few gameplay videos of this beautiful gem. Left very impressed. Finally a real traditional jrpg with an old school feel, and traditional turn based combat. A jrpg besides Xenoblade Chronicles, and Lost Odyssey (the real FF13 in my eyes) that I feel safe spending my hard earned money on. It looks like Square is finally back on board.

I am proud to see that this much needed entry to the jrpg genre has landed exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS entertainment system. Here is hope that Square will show the same type of love and care for the Nintendo Wii U entertainment system in the near future. Giving us old school style jrpg gamers something to chew on in the Nintendo next generation home console space.

Rated E For Everyone

Game looks great. It's a shame that the golden age of RPG publishing is behind us. Nowadays we have to beg and beg for practically everything.

sux theres no plans of localizing this.. i dont know why but as of now they arent
knifefight  +   1216d ago
Probably being cautious. There's a LOT of text in the game, and neither FF 4 Warriors nor Theatarhythm did very well in the US. Square Enix's DS and 3DS offerings just haven't sold well.

It still sucks though =/
