Bravely Default’s Achievements Reward Players For Forum Posts And Using Facebook

By Spencer . October 12, 2012 . 2:00pm

imageSquare Enix has been integrating their games with their Square Enix Members program in Japan. The 3rd Birthday was the first title to do this with a digital stamp card. Players who wrote journal entries and post on a forum could access the Lightning costume faster.

 

Bravely Default: Flying Fairy has a members achievement system too. The first thing you have to do is register your Bravely Default game on the site, which gives you a “Bravely Code” and a Hi-Potion to use in the game. Post in the Bravely Default members forum and you’ll get a status alignment curing Panacea. Want the Onion Knight costume for Tiz? That reward is tied to the Facebook job fortune telling app.

 

Other achievements are tied to in game events. Defeating certain monsters, presumably bosses, rewards players with items like Phoenix Down and Teleport Stones. Passing an event point and you’ll get an Antarctic Wind. Some of the rewards net players Turbo Ethers and precious Megalixirs. It’s an interesting idea, but so far Square Enix’s overseas branches have not used the members reward system yet. Right now, Bravely Default: Flying Fairy hasn’t even been announced for other regions.

    Reward player who ever post something on the forum and playing the fortune telling facebook game this sounds like an awesome game that SE need to release into the west.

  • Leon_Tekashi

    Wow, more and more stuff for the game. This could turn into a series.

  • Jirin

    So now they’re giving in game rewards for doing their marketing for them.

    Okay, screw it.  I’m becoming a crotchety old man and insisting on ‘The way things used to be’.  29 isn’t too young to be a crotchety old man, not if you’re a gamer!

      If they removed the Facebook stuff it would be more appealing of an idea.

        I really don’t like facebook connectivity.

        • https://twitter.com/#!/SplashdownTiger STiger

    That art reminds me a lot of Tactics Ogre. http://uk.playstation.com/media/cD4gdGOU/TacticsOgre_Hero.JPG

       It does because the same person who drew that image was the one working on the concept art/character designs for Bravely Default. That’s Akihiko Yoshida :)

      Sharp eye. It’s the same artist

      (I changed it to wikipedia, because Final Fantasy wiki only had his work from FFT till now)

        Ah! I didn’t even know that. Very cool!

    hmm, there needs to be a Garnet costume for Agnes

    Not so sure about this idea, but at least the rewards are regular items rather than unique ones.
