Instead Of Summoning Bahamut, Summon One Of Your Friends In Bravely Default

By Spencer . August 3, 2012 . 3:02am

bravely14That’s right, Bravely Default: Flying Fairy lets players call in people from their friend list or a Streetpass stranger into a battle. While you can’t call in a Mii, Bravely Default will load up Takahashi’s Agnes, for example. Summoned allies automatically use one command like striking enemies with fight or healing the group with Cura. The more you summon a friend the stronger they get.

The fourth party member Lingabel is 18 years old and like the big brother of the group. He’s a worldly dude and a bit of a womanizer. Lingabel also carries the Handbook of D, a mysterious book that has prophecies (and job information) written in it.

There’s another group of enemies chasing after the Bravely Default heroes. Matamatto Boritori Troupe has Malme (Time Mage), Jackal (Thief), Ikuma (Magic Swordsman), and Nikosguy (Merchant).

So far, all of the key enemies share the same jobs the Bravely Default: Flying Fairy heroes can use. That means Time Mage, Merchant, and Thief are probably other classes in the game. Well, Thief and Merchant are confirmed for sure. Screenshow Tiz dressed in outfits for both jobs.

    That is one creepy time mage. But I still have high hopes that this game will come to america.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      My Body is ready for this game SE. Don’t screw on this one pliz.T_T

    • They have no reason not to. It should hopefully come. >_<;
      1) They localized 4HoL (this is a lot like it).
      2) It is on 3DS.

      • Shadowman

        Now I got higher hopes. I forgot whats what is 4HoL?

        • Basically FF1 with modern design and different story.

        • Tom_Phoenix

          Final Fantasy: 4 Heroes of Light for the DS, a somewhat poorly designed attempt at returning to the classic FF formula and the spiritual predecessor of this game (infact, this game was originally going to be a sequel until they decided to change the name so that people wouldn’t confuse it for Final Fantasy….sadly, I’m not joking).

          So far, even just based on the previews we’ve seen, Bravely Default looks like it’s going to be a big improvement over 4HoL.

    • Suicunesol

       I have a feeling that the creepy “time mage” in question is actually a merchant. He has a pocket watch on his chest, but that just might be an indicator of wealth. Also, in one screenshot he’s attacking with a bunch of gold coins.

      So the guy with the buckteeth is the merchant and the man in gold armor is the time mage.

      • Shadowman

        Okay I stand corrected.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Hmm….. i don’t know about most of you guys here but don’t you if the summon there is summoning certain “Beings” like Efreet and friends there decided by the color of the Mii is better isn’t it?

    Compared to summoning the same characters again there.T_T

    But well, this game does looks great there.^_^ Just tell us that you are going to bring this game here SE. I believe lots of your old fans will come back to you there.^_^

  • Herok♞

    This is now my most anticipated 3DS game I would love for it to be localized.

  • leadintea

    Wow. The Time Mage class looks like ass… though I am glad that it looks different to the previous design with their ridiculous pointy hats. I also hope the Merchant class isn’t as broken as in 4 HoL.

  • Vampiric

    Please announce a localization……..

  • Scorch with dragon flame! Jennifer!

  • I will strive to be the best summon ever! lol

  • neocatzon

    Aww.. only one command at a time. There goes my dream to create a Mighty Guard summon.

  • Göran Isacson

    Gotta say, summoning a friend-character instead of a beast of myth and legend is… nnnot exactly very epic. It’s kind of mundane and makes me wonder what the point is.

    On another note, one look at that Time Mage-character and I just KNOW we’ll be seeing that guy in NTR-doujins, it’s like he was MADE for it. If you don’t know what those are… keep that up. Trust me, you’ll be happier for it.

    • Suicunesol

      I think the “time mage” (the guy with the top hat and a cane) is actually a merchant. The real time mage is the man in gold armor. Crazy, I know. But in one of the screenshots the top hat guy is attacking with coins.

      Plus, their attire just makes sense.

      • leadintea

        Yeah, the guy in the gold armor is the Time Mage. If you look at one of the pics, he’s casting magic with a clock hand.

      • Göran Isacson

        Ha ha WELP THAT’LL TEACH ME to judge on first impressions. I saw “red outfit” +” “big clock on his chest” and immediately presumed he was a time-mage and the guy in the golden armor was the merchant.

  • rinalicat

    …my friends would’t play this game…mostly because none of my friends have a 3DS and even they did, they would play Mario…

  • MrOrpheus

    This game’s art is really quite gorgeous.

  • Jake_Indiman

    Sigh…Akihiko Yoshida’s works are so beautiful…makes me cry….sniff…

  • Too much awesomeness to my eyes.

  • fancycakes

    Pleeeeeeease bring this over here, Squeenix! I haven’t had such a strong desire to play a video game in the LONGEST time, and I want to play this one so bad!! 

    On a side note, Edea’s outfits are the cutest.

  • Syn

    I summon thee, oh great…………..Bob *bob walks in* “wait what??…..” Would’ve liked mythical creature better though, adds some variety, will still play this as it looks too amazing too pass up, the art style reminds me of Final Fantasy Tactics alot.
