Bravely Default Producer Implemented Fan Feedback From Demo

By Spencer . May 23, 2012 . 12:06am

In Japan, Square Enix asked players to submit feedback based on the second Bravely Default demo, the one where you can run around town and do a water fetching side quest.


Some fans felt Tiz walked too slow and producer Tomoya Asano fixed that. Characters now run 20% faster and this won’t affect the enemy encounter rate. You can see a comparison with the updated game and the demo (playing in a window). Running speed also changes depending on how far you push the slide pad.



Other tweaks Asano showed were changing character standing positions when you talk to them and fixing a sound timing issue in the inn. Asano says players will be able to test out the battle system in the next Bravely Default: Flying Fairy demo.


Bravely Default: Flying Fairy is slated for release later this year on Nintendo 3DS.

    Agnes’s running animation seems really cute for some reason. 8_8

  • klkAlexar

    Oh wow, this looks good! I wonder when we will get at least a demo in English.

    • With how SE has been recently… never. I would like this game don’t get me wrong but SE is just being URGH.

      • boundries_san

        …….how SE recently??? THey are bringing Thearhythm here u know?

        • Do people even really want ANOTHER rhythm game though? I am not into them at all.

          • boundries_san

            “Another”??? Lol This FF here? and Yes people want another rhythm game especially if they are done right.

          • Yes “another” we are getting like 50k of them lately. :/ And really it is just a game with FF characters not really FF.

          • boundries_san

            Yet Dissidia is also called as FF as it had all FF char inside the game even though it is not really FF game.

            I think the best explanation is u don’t like Rhythm game here and there are still people love rhythm game especially with FF music here.

          • Dissidia was also not a FF game. It just had characters from FF. And I did love Dissidia so I am not hating on it and I can say that I indeed don’t like rhythm games but it is mainly because of how many we are getting spammed with. And honestly I know a lot of people really don’t want Thea…that game.

      • Farid Belkacemi

        I don’t understand your comment : 2 SE games are coming in EU/US this summer and here we have BD, clearly a FF spin-off minus the name…

        • 2? KH3D and Thea…whatever? I assume are the ones you mean? I am happy for KH coming but we still have several games from them that are not confirmed to be coming here.

          • Farid Belkacemi

            Yeah, these two ! “Several games”… That were released in Japan ?

          • Yes. I am not saying they won’t come but they aren’t announced yet.

  • GreekGod88

    with this and the new rumored Castlevania 3ds, Zelda remake and resident evil 
    i think there are now enough games for me to buy the 3ds finally ..

  • Square-Enix, I want this game, please………

  • neetyneety

    Not to sound like such a spoilsport, but the graphics seem pretty muddy. Yes, yes I know it’s a video, but I just hope that the actual game has clearer visuals, because it would be a darn shame if those beautiful hand-drawn backgrounds were ruined just because of that.

    • Herok ♞

       The 3DS always looks miles better then what videos show.

      • KuroiKen

        In 3D it’s exeptionally better. Without 3D it’s usually still better than in the video.
        Probably because the size of 3DS screen and the video resolution.

    • XiaomuArisu

       Its weird but everytime somebody shows a ds or 3ds video or just pictures they look(compared to the real game)bad.Never understood why…bad camera maybe?

  • RmanX1000

    This is what i like to call: “Getting s**t done.”

  • boundries_san

    It is always a good thing when developers actually cares about what the feedback here lol.^^

    Can’t wait for E3 for info on this game lol.

  • that’s nice, hopefully they fix the battle standing positions too. Their just a bit awkward is all.

  • Game looks gorgeous either way; but I’m glad she is now able to run faster. Not that it would bother me much, but it’s always interesting to know they’re taking fan feedback seriously here :)

  • Mago Iichi

    The running speed from before didn’t seem to bother me, but it’s nice that they made it faster.

    Also, fixing actual problems like the sound thing was cool too.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    is this coming to the states?

    • It hasn’t been said yet. But E3 is only what 2 weeks away?

  • MrRobbyM

    Lookin’ great! I’m glad they’re listening to fan feedback, because I got some. Vita version, please.

    • Brandonmkii

      Come on, don’t be one of those guys.

      • MrRobbyM

        Is “one of those guys” a bad thing? I’d just like a Vita version. The more people play the game the better, right?

        • It leads to fanboi wars….. I wouldnt be surprised if a 3ds>vita or vise versa argument showed up. Should be obvious. Its like saying zelda would be better on 360.

          • MrRobbyM

            I could see that, but I did not say anything bad about the game or the 3DS. I simply wanted to express that I would like to see a Vita version. If someone takes that as a jab at the 3DS/game, that’s their fault. The only thing that I would have liked to see would be interest from other people for a Vita version.

          • Your intent doesnt matter. People will perceive it however they please. And that will without fail lead to a fanboi argument.

          • I could say that I agree with you that it should be on vita cause 3ds sucks major…… Things can spiral out of control very easily. Never talk about exclusives being on other consoles. Its “always” a bad idea.

          • MrRobbyM

            @facebook-100000355411389:disqus “3ds sucks major……”

            Shhh! I hear the angry mobs already!

    • Why is it that some of you guys never learn? Consider this a warning. Next time: ban.

      I really don’t understand how, with close to 2,000 comments on this site, you still haven’t been able to understand that the concept of asking for games on consoles they aren’t intended for is frowned upon here.

      • MrRobbyM

        To be completely honest, I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Could you please tell me? So I can avoid doing it in the future. Thanks.

        • boundries_san

          While u have ur own reason wanting a game to be released on ur favorite platform, Those kind of comment can lead into fanboy wars here lol.

          For example: 3DS owner can just keep coming to Vita game and keep saying how they would love to play this game if they come to their consoles.

          Just try to accept that some game is exclusive for one consoles and the best way to play them is to buy that platform.

          • MrRobbyM

            “3DS owner can just keep coming to Vita game and keep saying how they
            would love to play this game if they come to their consoles.”

            I don’t see what’s wrong with that ._. I don’t see many instances where commenters get hostile and just assume things so that’s why I thought it was okay that I just voiced my opinion. I haven’t been reading as many articles lately so maybe it’s a recent thing? O_o Anyways, it’s no biggie and I’ll avoid my any related comments in the future.

          • malek86

            It used to be a lot worse before (especially for 360 games articles, which had lots of people coming in just to say “where’s my PS3 version?”, but it really went all ways). Now things have mellowed down, no doubt thanks to the new guidelines and stricter policy. So let’s try to keep it like this.

          • MrRobbyM

            @malek86:disqus I remember it way back when, yeah. Not only here, but all over the internet used to be fanboy threads/comments everywhere. I’m glad most people have stopped such idiocy.

        • boundries_san

          Sorry if we are harsh here but it is just, previously this kind of thing is so rampant that it can make u sick. People with 360 going to each PS3 section and screaming for where is 360 release and the same happen to 360 section especially on Vesperia lol.

          If u wanted to say something about this game coming to another platform, it would be better if u don’t write it so directly or provide more reason on why it is better releasing the game on that platform.

          Well peace anyway hope for pleasant experiences here.^^

          • MrRobbyM

            Same to you :)

      • MrRobbyM

        I honestly didn’t notice that. The only times I’ve seen comments like those ill received are when they complain about the current version(s) being bad, which I’m not doing. I would just like a Vita version, nothing more. But okay, thanks for the warning. Will avoid doing it in the future.

    • Tom_Phoenix

      You do realise that platform begging can get you banned, right? Ishaan specifically demanded that people don’t do it, since it doesn’t lead to anything productive.

      • MrRobbyM

        I didn’t see where he posted that, so no, I did not know. But, to be fair, not many comments are actually “productive”. But yeah, I got it now.

  • Farid Belkacemi

    One of my Most Wanted game ! I have faith in SE, they’ll bring this baby in Europe :)

  • revenent hell

    Actually I wasnt very hyped for this game but the more I see of it the more I want it……Well done flying fairy well done…when you come arround im sure you will get my money as well
