Bravely Default has over 20 jobs and 300 abilities, including recently revealed jobs like Valkyria, Summoner, and Hunter. You can read about the game’s job change system in detail here and the battle system here.


As previously reported, the game’s “Abilink” feature lets you borrow a job level from your 3DS-owning friends, to boost your own job level by 1.


Bravely Default: Flying Fairy will be released on October 11th in Japan. A new demo is headed to the Japanese Nintendo eShop as well.

    This game, folks. This gosh darn game.

    Now, announce plans for localization; 2013. Ni no Kuni, Bravely Default and Tales of Xillia in one glorious year. Let’s do this.

  • Hinataharem

    Obligatory localization comment

  • Anime10121

    WANT THIS! So bad!! Square gimme!!!

    What else do you want, Im on all fours already orz!

  • I will finally buy a 3DS if this gets localized.

    • raymk

      Good just make sure you pick up some other good 3ds games on the way, there’s a good number of them coming out in the near future.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Looks amazing. A good story, job/ability customization, classic turn-based combat, etc. Seems like this title will have it all.

    The one thing I didn’t like in that vid was the Doomtrain summon. Why’d it have to shoot a fireball at the enemies? It should have just ran their asses down, in a classic “runaway train” style. =/

    • Wake

      Can’t really blame it. It obviously learned its lesson after being suplexed by Sabin in Final Fantasy VI.

      • PoweredByHentai

        No one escapes Sabin’s suplex.

        • Wake

          It thought nothing could derail it, it was after all a train of doom. Then one day the unthinkable happened. It was lifted in the air and for that brief moment of weightlessness it was lost. Within a blink of an eye, reality returned as it crashed onto the ground. A suplex. Sabin’s suplex. 

          The trauma still lingers even now. It has cost Doomtrain everything. Its wife and kids, its job and even its passion to live. Day in and day out it drowns itself with booze and it knows that the end is coming, its last stop.

          Who is the monster now?

      • Paradox me

        It clearly learned nothing from its encounter with Sabin, otherwise the train would have suplexed the enemy.

    • Nikolai Sumcad

       The kana read the attack as Prometheus’s Fire.  Maybe they’re taking a different approach?

  • The summon…was that Doomtrain? O.o amazing!!!!! I want this game even more now!

  • lorelai4cuties

    it looks great and fun

  • I want this so bad. >_<

  • Solomon_Kano

    This really just keeps getting better with each new thing Squenix tells us about it.

  • Prinnydoom

    Looking good

  • Mnstrzero00

    I’m really starting to wish that Microsoft make a dedicated handheld. I am so sick of crossing my fingers for big name releases and ,if were lucky, waiting a year for lesser release -pre-order bonuses for NA and Europe are often lame in comparison. Furthermore the Japanese Nintendo E-shop is absolutely superior to all others.

    • Off-topic, but I’ll bite.

      1. Microsoft doesn’t care about Japanese games. Japan is where most major portable games come from.

      2. Original eShop titles in North America and Europe are far, far beyond most original games on the Japanese eShop.

      • Tom_Phoenix

        It’s not that Microsoft doesn’t care about Japan so much as Japan doesn’t care about Microsoft. =P

        • Exkaiser

           Little from column A, little from column B.

  • puchinri

     Nnnn. Wantttt. So bad. I love how most of the classes are a mix of style and actual class, with a hint of being sensible in there. I hope this game gets localized. ♥
