Bravely Default’s Final Fantasy Superbosses And New Costumes Detailed

By Spencer . November 11, 2013 . 1:53am

Bravely Default has some crossover superbosses from Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light. “Since they’re monsters you’ll be getting as content from outside the game, we’re currently thinking about how strong they should be,” said producer Tomoya Asano. “We’re thinking about having their strength match the current progress of the player. In the end, we plan on having monsters who are even stronger than the ‘Adventurers’.”


Beelzebub is one of the guest enemies.

Mammon has an attack that drains brave points (BP), which is kind of like stealing turns. Here’s a little bit on how the Brave and Default battle system works.

Lucifer has strong attacks that can hit the whole party like the sword swipe attack the Iron Giant from other Final Fantasy games uses.

Lucifer also has powerful magic spells like Aeroja and a powerful physical counter attack called Another Face that hit Tiz for 9,999 damage.

The Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light superbosses aren’t regular encounters. All three will enter your game through the Internet and attack a town that you can rebuild through StreetPasses. If you don’t connect your 3DS online you can still fight these enemies by StreetPassing another player that has them.


Square Enix also made new costumes for Bravely Default: For the Sequel and a code included with the game unlocks these outfits.

    This is pretty cool, I really liked 4HoL it was a seriously underrated game.

    Only 25 more days till it hits Europe, I literally cannot wait to pick it up! :D

    • Ric Vazquez

      I guess it’s the europeans turn to be called lucky

  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    Those smokin scantily clad babes

    • Lumi

      And.. I think I saw a scantily clad dude.

      • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

        Babes because they look like babies. Sexy babies!

        That’s great, though.

  • Soooo is Bravely Default a FF game or something separate?

    • FlyingPony

      Unrelated, I believe. But there are some ex-FF people in the Bravely Default team.

    • Tom_Phoenix

      Technically, it’s a separate series, but its classic FF in everything but name and it even started out as a sequel to FF: 4HoL.

    • WhyWai

      something you called a spiritual successor… It’s official that this started as the sequel to FF:4HoL & SE decided to change the name..

  • Алексей Гришин

    You get a costume of guy in speedos? Ooookay…

    • MrRobbyM

      If female characters get that treatment all the time, why not males? At least every once in a while.

      • Pockystix

        if Kuja can rock a man thong, then so can Ringabell

    • Pockystix

      your icon makes it seem like you actually are excited for them

      • Алексей Гришин

        Well… I was shocked… a little… maybe… Oh, damn you, you discovered my secret love for men in speedos!

  • Neophoton

    Hate to be the bringer of bad news, but the DLC costumes are not packed within the game. They’re packaged with merchandise (both novel volumes, the artbook, and the drama CD) with codes.

    Granted, if it’s anything like BDFF was, they make it possible to unlock most of the costumes post-game a la Square Enix Members.

  • Jero

    When I replayed FF:4HoL I felt like there were a lot of things that could be better (I didn’t notice them the first time I played it). The game was insanely hard, which was good but frustrating, and the random attack was not something you usually want in an RPG, for example I would want to kill certain monsters first and couldn’t. But the game was super fun and the job system was great. But if you compare it to bravely default, wow, you can really see they used the template of the first game and improve it a lot. It’s almost unbearable to play FF:4HoL with bravely default in mind.

  • Herok♞

    One of the 3 games I am still looking forward to

  • zferolie

    … I should preorder this…

  • Brimfyre

    I haven’t seen any news about it, but does For the Sequel have all the same AR things that the original had, or did it get cut?

  • idrawrobots

    I shouldn’t be this aroused by chibi woman in a bunny costume.

  • artemisthemp

    You guys think the Western version also included the code?
