A Final Fantasy by Any Other Name Plays Just as Sweet in Bravely Default | 1UP

1UP: "Despite the title, Square Enix's latest import release is pure, classic Final Fantasy." (3DS, Bravely Default: Flying Fairy)

After seeing a few of the extended gameplay videos I had the same view of this Nintendo 3DS entertainment system exclusive. Bravely Default looks to be a jrpg done properly.

Bravely default is very much a Final Fantasy inspired game. The earlier traditional Final Fantasy titles before they were inspired by western development. A traditional turn based battle system to compliment the old school majestic feel. Which I appreciate very much.

The Nintendo 3DS entertainment system is slowly becoming the official home for traditional jrpg titles. Just as the original Nintendo DS entertainment system had accomplished before it. I am looking forward to more positive news, and gameplay videos from this Nintendo platform exclusive. My hat is tipped in favor of Square Enix for doing the right thing.

Rated E For Everyone

Am I the only one that doesn't like the character models in battle? It's like FFIV on DS. It's just impossible to take seriously when they look like that...

most of the time JRPG's are more about the charm than the seriousness anyway. They could have been way worse though... But to be honest, I love the art-direction in this game.

Oh no the art style looks great, I just don't care for the look of the character models is all.

i guess its just the art style is so that you can see the face or look of the character more clearly.
loving the art style of the towns, looks amazing. i am guessing this will become a new series because of its name. otherwise they would have just called it final fantasy and have another sub series to confuse people.

hopefully more of these jrpgs wil come out and will also be available on the vita. otherwise i would have to buy a 3ds

This game must have A TON of content to look like that.. I feel the same with disgea on ps3/vita.. It looks like ps1 graphics but theres so much in it that its understandable to a point..

Yeah, I'd love to import the game. Especially since Square Enix has no plans to bring it over.

Oh, wait--Nintendo region-locked the 3DS.

Oh, well. Maybe I'll just import Type-0 on my Vita. Especially since Square-Enix has no plans to bring it over.

Oh, wait--Square Enix doesn't put any of its games up on the PSN store.
