Bravely Default Adds Valkyrie, Ninja, And Summoner Classes

By Spencer . August 7, 2012 . 1:37pm

bdef14Square Enix revealed a few more details about Bravely Default: Flying Fairy during a Nico Nico broadcast.


Three more jobs were revealed: Ninja, Summoner, and Valkyrie – a job exclusively for female characters. Don’t worry you can skip summon animations, Square Enix said during the broadcast.


Bravely Default, much like Final Fantasy V, has job levels and when your job level goes up you can deal more hits when you attack. Square Enix said you can also use the Magic Sword ability on your fists (for the monk class) and there will be a number of ways to restore brave points (BP). We saw the Superstar class has a song that restores BP for an ally in the fourth Bravely Default demo.


Speaking of demos, Square Enix will release a fifth Bravely Default demo and save data from this demo can be transferred into the final game which comes out on October 11.

    Just to be clear, it’s the Valkyrie class that’s females only right? Not the Ninja and Summoner classes included?

    • Maumac77

      I would think so, although they could make opposites as well. For example if females were ninjas, the males would be samurai?

      • There are female ninjas, they’re just called kunoichi. 

    • Just the Valkyrie one.

        Oh ok.I usually hate gender locked classes, but Valkyries are usually female so I won’t complain about that.

        And now I’m wishing there was a Valkyrie Profile game on consoles this gen, instead of only getting a handheld game, which was good.

        • I don’t mind some gender locked classes.

          Never played the series but I wouldn’t mind seeing a current gen Valkyrie Profile on a home console.

    Can we just go ahead and say that this game has the most demos for an RPG EVER, not that I’m complaining, oh wait I SHOULD be complaining because I want a demo too!

    This game would sit quite nicely in my collection if Square were to announce it for the west :)  Everything they’ve shown for this so gar just seems so right!

  • Hopefully the summons are awesome, and there are alot of them.  Who would ever skip a summon animation.  Beats me.  There really aren’t enough games with over the top super spells and summons.

  • badmoogle

    I wonder if they will use any summons from the FF series.

  • leadintea

    So is there going to be a male exclusive class?

  • I shall have the best Valkyrie ever, and shall name her VAL.

    (Reminiscing UFO ULTRAMAIDEN VALKYRIE) =^_^=

     Dang. All my 3DS games are only Nintendo and S-E. o_o I want Rhythm Thief and the infamous Prof. Layton Vs. Phoenix Wright.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Lol.^_^ Rhythm Thief is out already there.^_^ And it is surely one of the best game for 3DS there that need more love.^_^ BUY THEM!!!!

  • komiko12

    I would like classic FF summons, but they may use new ones since this is a bit separate from the FF series.

    Still, I would like to see Shiva, Ifrit and Ramuh.

    That’s quite awesome! I’m really looking forward to localization for this. My boyfriend and I are enjoying FFV for a ton of reasons, but one essential reason is the job system, so that makes BD:FF all the more beautiful. ♥

    (And so looking forward to using Valkyrie!)

  • Valkyrie sounds like an awesome class to play as. If it’s anything like Gwendolyn from Odin Sphere, hell yeah!

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    BF:FF There seems to provide more happyness for me for every small news there lol.^_^

    THe only thing that still control me from going crazy is surely the lack of localization new there.^_^ THe moment S-E give the news there, i am surely going crazy there lol.^_^
