Bravely Default: Flying Fairy Collector’s Edition Has Art Album, Giant AR Poster

By Ishaan . July 23, 2012 . 11:00am

Bravely Default: Flying Fairy will be released on October 11th in Japan, and Square Enix are prepping a special collector’s edition that will be available via their e-Store in Japan. Here’s a look at it:



The collector’s edition includes the game, an album of art, a 3DS cover, a giant augmented reality poster, and the game’s soundtrack. It will cost 12,800 yen.


Bravely Default: Flying Fairy will have 24 jobs, and will allow you to further customize your characters through job abilities, command abilities and support abilities. Command abilities allow you to give abilities from a different job class to your character (a monk with black magic, for example). You can read more about this system here.

    holy cow, beautiful!

    Make this the CE in NA, I mean, whenever you decide to announce localization (I mean YOU ARE working on that aren’t you) and I swear Square, YOU CAN HAVE ALL MY MONIES!!!

  • SirRichard

    Square Enix Europe, don’t fail us now!

  • Letiumtide

    We never get amazing collectors editions. Look at that, why can`t we EVER get anything close to that amazing?

    • Japan gets collectors editions from the tap. So to speak.

  • MrRobbyM

    Oh god please let this come to NA.

  • Oh look a collectors edition I want. I wonder what will happen?

    Comes out in the NA with only its normal edition and EU gets the collectors edition and NA gets shafted yet again? Joy.

    • Luna Kazemaru

       Why is it every time I see people post that last bit like you just did I want to rip them a new one?

      • I mean in terms of special editions, not release dates, since Europe does get screwed over with later release dates, I understand that, still it just seems like  any Japanese game that comes out now a days a special edition never comes to North America anymore, unless its own a specific website or something. 

        It wasn’t intentional.

        • Luna Kazemaru

           Ok seeing as how you didn’t have some ass reply I will just say yes EU has been getting alot of LE/CE’s as of late its honestly well needed if you asked me. Since the EU has been plagued with crappy release dates with nothing to show for its not a matter of favoring the EU more like some say.

          • Oh I completely understand, it being justified, seeing as Europe gets screwed on Release dates (especially by Atlus and Square) way too often. I was just saying that NA should get some more as well, heck maybe a CE’s after the one in Europe comes out. 

      • Tom_Phoenix

        Beacuse history apparently isn’t one of the favourite subjects of certain NA gamers.

    • KHSoraKeyBlade

       I dunno, Square screwed us over pretty bad with the KH3D collector’s edition.
      “Wanted to give something special to the English fans” they said. Then they completely ignored the fact that the game wasn’t dubbed in any other language besides English. American’s aren’t the only people in the world that speak English >.>
      I wouldn’t lose faith in a special edition for America just yet.

    • Tom_Phoenix

      Even assuming this game gets localised, the EU getting the collector’s edition is hardly a sure thing. For example, EU didn’t get any sort of collector’s edition of Kingdom Hearts 3D, whereas NA did.

      In the end, Japan is still going to get better Collector’s Editions than both NA and EU.

      • I was not thinking of KH3D at the time I said that, I just meant before with games on average an EU edition always comes up and yes Japan always has collectors editions as always.

  • DuskSharkEX

    Man, I’m curious as to who is that blonde person beside Agnes, Tiz and Edea…

  • kylehyde

    Now I have three wishes about this game, the first one is the localization around the world, the second, is that the boxart is left untouched and the third, that this edition gets released too.

  • Levin_Scorpius

    Why must you continue to taunt me with all these shiny things, Square Enix?

  • Looks so pretty. *_*

  • Jirin

    Holy Working Designs Batman!

  • CrimsonalCore

    I have no interested in this game until that girl came along. You know the one with red dress? For some reason, she reminds me of my high school sweetheart, so I took a lot of interested in this game now and desire this collector’s edition. >.<

  • Jonathan Keycross

    That box art is already Collector´s Edition Quality for me.

  • Tom_Phoenix

    Somehow, I get the feeling that this particular CE will remain a Japan-exclusive. Even if this game gets localised and even if NA and EU do get CEs of their own, they are likely to be more watered-down compared to this one.

    That said, if this game DOES get localised, I honestly wouldn’t mind if Square released a special first print edition, akin to the ones they made for many of their late PSP releases in Europe (Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection, The 3rd Birthday…).

  • That CE looks amazing! If we get anything that nice over here I might just have to buy a 3DS.

  • Shadowman

    Please localize. T__T

  • Shane Guidaboni

    Squeenix! Give us this game! 

  • I’d definitely get this, should SE of Europe decided to release it here. Well, here’s hoping they’ll do!

  • Foryth

    My reaction to every news I see on this game is that of a child rolling on the floor screaming “I want it! I want it! I WANT IT!”.  Well not really, but I’m preordering day one if this comes to NA.

  • I think God messed up I shoulda went the instead of the guy infront of me.  I’m supposed to be Japanese born in Japan.

  • Yamaneko22

    If this version makes it here, then I’m planning to get it despite not having 3DS.

    My PVC figure addiction keeps me away from buying new consoles so far… @[email protected]

    I like how Bravely Default has the seemingly random subtitle of “Flying Fairy” and there’s actually a flying fairy on the boxart.

    The boxart definitely isn’t making it overseas, though. Same goes for the title. It’s too demure for Western swords and sorcery.

    •  seemingly random, although it’s really just codename “Final Fantasy game with a name change”

      fun fact, FFIX would’ve had this same fate back in it’s development, but the idea was scrapped, as it made no sense lol

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    ………….state side plz…. of i’ll do something in a otaku way

  • Wow…that´s one amazing collector´s edition T.T, i would love to see how the AR poster looks like.

  • y’know, I usually don’t buy collector’s editions, but when I do; it’s for games like this.

  • komiko12

    That boxart…
    It’s really beautiful!

  • Code

    Ohh that’s a nice looking collector’s edition oAo;; I’m kind of looking forward to the game >wA<~

  • esteban cartagena

    this deserves a psp or vita release as well.

  • aoihana

    Bravely Default had already caught my eye, mostly because of the beautiful art style, but to see that the Collector’s Edition will be just as beautiful?! I wasn’t thinking of getting it soon, but man, that Collector’s Edition is just outright beautiful! 

    It’s unfortunate that it’ll be a site exclusive, though, because that means it’ll cost quite a bit to import a copy, but I’m really tempted to! I feel like this is one of those Collector’s Editions I just can’t pass on! (*≧m≦*)
