Bravely Default: Flying Fairy Screens Of The Brave & Default Battle System

By Spencer . June 29, 2012 . 3:18am

Bravely Default: Flying Fairy’s battle system is reminiscent of old Final Fantasy games with two new commands. Players can use "default" to skip their turn and stock one BP or select "brave" to do a burst of attacks.

An attacker class like the monk or black mage, can finish a fight in one turn if you exploit weaknesses. Find out more about how Bravely Default’s battle system works here.

Edea, a fifteen year old girl with a strong sense of justice, joins Tiz in the demo. Initially, Edea is an enemy, but she has a change of heart about her actions and decides to travel with Tiz.

    Honestly this sounds alot better then the point system that was used in FF4HoL, which is why I am excited. 

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Uukh all this information is torturing me here.T_T I just need one medicine here…….. Localization news.T_T

  • okay now is your time to shine as a publisher SE, you ported all the FF titles on various systems … and in various regions
    *crossing fingers*
    Would be nice if it wasn’t 3DS only since the guys from Alundra work on it (I’m a super big fan of those two games). And that one seems like a good investion … maybe I’ll buy it beforehand, just like I did with Last Story. xD

    • Vampiric

       It is against the rules to request a game for another system

      •  Oh I think it’s very much allowed if you don’t have the money or the eyesight for the other one and SE is basically publishing their stuff anywhere nowadays. ;)

        • Tommy Lee

 He means it’s against this site’s general rules. You’ll probably get a light warning from a mod since this seems to be the first time you’re making a request, but as a community we’d like the chances of a “console argument” breaking out to be as close to 0% as possible. You do have point about S-E porting stuff everywhere though. :p

          • Oh hell it’s been so long since I read the rules I completely forgot about that. I hope I will be able to keep it in the bakc of my mind for longer now.

            Stupid me I didn’t think about the fact that some people could be angry nowadays for another port of a game, especially if the game is “that rare” as Bravely Default.

            Thank you for clearing that up and also to Vampiric. *bows again*

    • Console war blah blah since you posted a request blah blah blah. >_> Whatever. Anyways. This technically isn’t a FF title.

      •  true it isn’t but since it’s published by Square Enix and they even included some of the staff members it *could* happen. Have to admit it’s not very likely though … till that happens I might even have the money for a 3DS system. xDD

        And once more sumimasen for the request, I edited my post and am expecting the full punishment for it. ^^

    I wish the screenshots were larger.  It’s too hard to see anything. :(

  • I soooooo want this! >_<

  • MrRobbyM

    The game is lookin’ mighty fine and very cute. We didn’t get 7th Dragon, but this is close enough.

  • Shadowman

    This game looks boss.

  • If this game had a face, I would kiss it.

  • Omg new screens!

  • raymk

    Looks very good I want it now!! Well maybe not now since I have to many games to play but sometime early next year would be nice.

  • Mago Iichi

    That artstyle…it’s too cute.I’ll end up liking all the characters including the villains.

  • cj_iwakura

    I want to be there for Squeenix USA’s renaming brainstorm session.

      Brave by Default: Flying Fairy 

      No? (´_`。)

  • aoihana

    What a great batch of new screenshots, I really love the art style, it looks beautiful and really complements the 3DS. I still haven’t tried the demo out, maybe I’ll get to it later tonight! (*≧m≦*)

    I love Edea, she really pulls me in, and her character design is really interesting, I think. I love that fourth screenshot right under the character art, she looks so cute clenching her fist with that angry expression. (*≧▽≦)

    Like I said, I haven’t tried the demo, but it sure looks and sounds interesting, so I’ll have to add Bravely Default to my list! (◕‿◕✿)

      Agnes was pretty appealing already to me (I’m ambivalent about Tiz so far), but Edea~. Too cute! >u<

      Tell me if Edea is even cuter in the demo~.

  • puchinri

    I hope it’s still Agnes that gives her the change of heart in the game~.

    Also, I need this. ;u;
    I love how many games are coming to the 3DS~. Hopefully this and EX Troopers (and Gyrozetter) get localized! ♥
