Square Enix Ask Fans What Bravely Default Merchandise They’d Like To See

By Sato . October 20, 2013 . 5:00pm

Earlier this month, there was a special NicoNico Live stream for Bravely Default: For the Sequel, where producer Tomoya Asano talked about some of the upcoming game’s changes, and more.

 

The above is a look at a question that was asked during the event (via Dengeki): “What kind of Bravely Default: Flying Fairy-related items would you like to have?”

  • D’s Notebook—20.6%
  • Figurines—16.1%
  • Limited edition guidebook—15.2%
  • Novel book—8.4%
  • Charm strap—6.6%
  • Art collection—6.3%
  • Nendoroid—5.1%
  • Agnes’ pendant—4.8%
  • Keychain—3.6%
  • Drama CD—3.3%

 

Interestingly enough, Asano had already prepared an actual D’s Notebook and a series of novels, which he presented during the NicoNico Live stream, and mentioned that they will be available for purchase later. They are also putting strong consideration into releasing figurines. You can check out the story behind the D’s Notebook in an earlier interview with Asano.

 

While brainstorming ideas on how to balance the pricing of goods and their quality, Asano asked the viewers on NicoNico live to choose out of the following price ranges: 12,000 yen ($120), 6,000 yen ($60), 3,000 yen ($30), and 1,000 yen ($10). Since most of the viewers chose 6,000 and 3,000 yen, Asano decided that perhaps he would go with 4,500 to meet the middle. However, he also jokingly mentioned that if they do decide to go with a 6,000 yen D’s Notebook, it’d have to be a luxurious item that uses actual silver.

 

As far as the novel series go, Asano had already finished reading them all and strongly recommends fans of the series to give them a read. Additionally, he also gave a glimpse of the art collection.

 

Asano had one last surprise, as he revealed that the official drama CD is already in the works. The above is a look at the special illustration included with the set, which will also include special messages from the leading voice actors of Bravely Default.

 

Bravely Default will be coming out December 6 in Europe, and early 2014 in North America for Nintendo 3DS.

          I suppose we should tell Asano to get on that. x’D

  • Rogerrmark

    I just hope the figurines have a decent print..never got FFIII’s ones.

  • ronin4life

    “nendoroid: 5.1%”

    0[?]0//
    How is that so low?

    • BizarreJelly

      Exactly what I was about to ask.

  • chroma816

    I’d like an art book. That’d be beyond awesome.

  • Guest

    There isn’t any Bravely Default merchadise I’d like but I would sure love to see Saga Frontier and Saga Frontier 2 on PSN

    • Guest

      Heh… to the two that down voted, you obviously never played either of the Saga Frontier games

      • Neophoton

        Or they just find your comments irrelevant to the article at hand.

  • neocatzon

    Novel book definitely. What medium can complement the main story better than a book?

  • surakian

    And so I will import the art collection and D’s Notebook in a heartbeat.

  • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

    Lol, they’re on top of it. Fantastic. ♥
    I hope we see at least some of that merch here~.

    I also can’t wait to see what else they make.

  • TheRealMalek

    And still no news where to preorder the collector in europe >_<'

  • Misurino

    Ah square enix, you don’t know how to get money anymore…
    I played the first BD expecting something good. I really like the artworks and the style, reminded me a bit of FFIX, I was hoping something new but similar to old games. And I totally fell into the trap. Damn you square enix.
    It has some good ideas and features, but the game is so poor if we talk about contents, story, characters, and dialogues…. In my opinion the story is banal, recurring and boring, while the characters lack of personality. And man, when they started talking about the heroine wearing thong, I literally throwed the 3DS out of the window.

  • FlyingPony

    Figurine. Articulated figurine so I can make many pose of it.

  • RazeXI

    haha oh square…ALL OF THEM

  • Neophoton

    I’d gladly pick up just about everything on that list.

  • Skeptika Crediblus

    A PS Vita version

    That counts as merchandise, right?

  • TheLastBattalion

    Hmmm.
    Guide book, novel book or art book is good enough for me! ^-^
