       Lol, I kinda thought that too.
      . . . Not really gonna complain though, because I do appreciate that, and it’s terribly cute.

    Damn clicked on the article hoping to see edea in maka’s soul eater uniform :(
    would make some awesome dlc

  • so much daw

  • Shadowman

    This is mad tight yo!!! How about some actual Soul Eater costumes that will make great DLC.

    • XiaomuArisu

       Dont give them (dlc) Ideas!
      Arent the Valkyrie and the swordmaster and the magus with a foxtail enough?

  • Anime10121

    These are some amazing stuffs!  This will probably be the best jrpg for a handheld for a long time coming!  I just dont see how this game couldn’t do well, there is just too much right :P

  • Omg.

    :x This game is looking so amazing. Srsl. They actually went for meaningful collaborations this time? When I saw the title I thought this would be for like DLC costumes or optional stuff, but dang, they’re actually going for actual character design and job costume designs. Love it.

  • I can totally see this growing into a franchise (depending on how the story ends): plushies, nendoroids, etc. 

    I wonder if they’ll be boss-specific jobs?

    • puchinri

      It could play out similar to five, where crystals give you certain jobs, maybe that’s so here or the bosses are what make jobs available (well, by beating them to a pulp).

      Also, I really hope this grows into a franchise. I will collect nendroids and plushies galore, and I don’t even bothering checking out nendroids.

      • Either way, I wouldn’t mind because the games is looking really good; sharing jobs with your enemy and strategic use of the Bravely Default system. I can’t wait.

        There are certain ones I wouldn’t mind collecting as nendoroids.. :D

        • puchinri

           Definitely~. I am so ready for this game to be out. And here, too.

  • I cant wait to play as Valkyrie! =^_^=

    An upside-down umbrella dress. Yup, that looks like it came from the mind that envisioned Asura alright. Only other design I’m liking here is the over the top evil… merchant, or whatever he is. or Time Mage or whatever, just… that moustache. That SNEER. Seldom have I seen someone who takes such GLEE in being a bastard.

  • isfuturebright

    My my this looks amazing ^^

  • Came here expecting adorableness, was not dissapointed.  
    That first design, where the girl has essentially an upside-down dress on, is particularly creative and interesting.  

    • puchinri

       What’s funny is, I remember a chapter+episode of GA where the students are in their design/fashion class, and the mecha/shounen student kept having failing designs until she basically flipped a dress upside down. Somehow, that really seems to work.

  • puchinri

    They got an awesome group of artists together~. I remember seeing part of the list the other day, but not all of them. That’s pretty awesome. ^u^

  • SirRichard

    Every new article about this game just brings up another bit of news about how they went and got some cool external talent to come in and work on the game in some form. Running out of ways to talk about how much love it shows, honestly.

  • too bad all these texture and details goes insane blurry and block on the 3DS :/ talk about wasted resources…. I am usually not a big sucker for graphics… but seeing these design butchered in game just makes me sad…

    is it just me or does everyone think Victoria is the cutest thing in this game
