Bravely Default will be released in North America on February 7th, Nintendo of America announced during a Nintendo Direct presentation this morning.


Additionally, a collector’s edition of the game will be released on the same day. This will contain the game, an art book, 34 augmented reality cards and an original soundtrack CD. It will not include the figurine included with the European collector’s edition of the game.

    Feels good being French. : D

    • Masa

      *hugs you* off to download.

      • Thrasher429

        I’ll second that hug.

  • Zero_Destiny

    Ha! Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!!!!

    Looks like I won my bet with Ishaan and somebody else! I called it! I knew it would be February! >:D

    And now on topic: Glad to see we’re getting some goodies too. :)

    • Arcana Wiz

      so now what you will win? remember of filming the shameful moments to you have blackmail material forever….

      • Zero_Destiny

        I don’t know yet. :O starts to writes down plots for the future heheheheh

        *Ah-hum* I’m unstoppable. >:D

  • urbanscholar

    Don’t say this often on the internets


  • Exkaiser

    As the bard once said, “Our frothing demand for this game increases.”

  • TheExile285

    YES! That LE will be mine!

  • Shindoi Hayato

    As much as I’d like all the bells and whistles of the Euro-Special Edition, I’ll take what I can get!

  • Neophoton

    Not sure if I’m even interested in the limited edition. Can’t I just buy someone’s AR cards off of them? I already own the OST and the artbook’s out next month, so…

    • Brimfyre

      Can’t you just print out the AR cards when someone uploads them?

      • Neophoton

        That’s true, but I just feel it’s a little… lack of quality. I probably won’t be bothering with the cards in the long run, but then I never got to try out the AR functions in the original release.

        • British_Otaku

          E.X. Troopers had digital AR Cards which I don’t believe were ever officially printed, I just printed them out on glossy photo paper and they look more limited edition than the goodies from the E.X. Troopers limited edition… and the AR Cards work which is a plus.

          That said, I forget about the AR features in games usually as well. >_>

          • Neophoton

            Hmm, is that so! I’ll have to take that into consideration if I have any glossy paper lying around.

  • r0gamer940

    someone post an amazon link once the ce becomes available please. But now I am debating importing LR becuase I am going to be swamped with games early next year

  • KingGunblader

    One day after my birthday! Huzzah!

  • Herok♞

    Well I can live with no figure, it just means that we can probably get this at a price that doesn’t make my wallet cringe

    • Basically this. And while I love figures and all, lately they’re just piling up and collecting dust. I am curious what the figure would look like though — I don’t think Japan even got one.

      • Алексей Гришин

        You asked for it.

        • Yeah I’m good.

        • Caleb Montoya

          It kind looks a little below the current standard of figures. It looks more like a Disney sculpt than quality Good Smile Company goods.

        • Romancer Ecclesia

          … that’s REALLY ugly imo. thought it would look something along the lines of:

    • Magicks

      That’s something I can get behind. :x Especially since there are at least three CE releases off the top of my head that I want to get in Q1 2014. (This, BB:CP, and hopefully if Tecmo Koei doesn’t disappoint us with another lack of a LE, Atelier EschaLogy.)

    • Anime10121

      Missed the Direct, did they announce a price for the LE?

      • Zero_Destiny

        No price was said in the Direct.

        In case you want to see it still though, Nintendo has uploaded the Direct to their YouTube now:

        I found the BD:WtFF part to be pretty cool.

        • Anime10121

          Thx, I’ll watch it for the BD part a bit later, as I heard/read the majority of it was pretty mehtastic.

  • Masa

    So America not getting the statue/model of Agnes? My friend in the US is gonna be annoyed..kinda sucks they don’t get it.

  • Jero

    I wasn’t that interested in the figurine, but a lot more in the artbook. Plus the music is amazing. Definetly i’ll be buying this. OMG i’m so happy. I heard something about a demo in the Europe eshop? A friend of mine has an european 3DS so yeah.

    • GH56734

      The whole game is getting released already in Europe and Japan in December, with all six languages.

  • Flandre Scarlet

    Was gonna get the LE, but no figure = no buy. Will get the normal edition instead.

  • domonkun

    totally stoked for the collector’s edition! :3 wish the figure was included too tho…

  • Surgeon of Death

    Ok. Tales of symphonia hd collectors edition. infamous second son, Danganronpa and flying fairy. My wallet isn’t ready….

    • Magicks

      No one’s wallet is safe.

  • $48552495

    Goddamn whats up with February 2014. Lightning Return, Tales Symphonia HD, Toukiden and now this, my poor wallet

    • VietKnight

      There’s more if you include, Danganronpa, EDF, Ragnarok Odyssey Ace, DK Tropical Freeze, Thief and Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2. That makes your wallet bleed and cry.
      Danganronpa CE is available on NISA online store.

  • epy

    Thank you Nintendo for bringing us Square Enix titles…again. Godammit SE.

  • Vaporeon23

    I’m honestly surprised that we get an LE at all, being that it’s NoA.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Yeah….. *Pre-ordering the collector’s editio* must hold back the hype

  • Learii

    why is have to be Feb x_x

  • Ethan_Twain

    Huh. In 2013 we got Fire Emblem on Feb. 4. In 2014 we get Bravely Default on Feb. 7.

    My birthday happens to fall on Feb. 7. I hope this trend continues so I can continue using my birthday to justify treating myself to Nintendo JRPG goodness. Project X for Feb. 5. 2015?

    • 2015?! Bite your tongue. If that game gets delayed out of 2014, it’s officially your fault.

      • Ethan_Twain

        Nintendo is known not to be shy about delaying a game and do you REMEMBER how long Monado and the Beginning of the World (or whatever that working title was) was in development limbo? I mean, it all paid off… but that scale, that length of game, that entire ridiculous affinity chart for characters across the entire world, all that post game content… that takes a lot of time! I’ve been taking it for granted that either X lands in 2015, or it lands in 2014 and is noticeably feature poor compared to it’s direct predecessor.

  • I’ll just take the game, I don’t need all that extra crap.

  • Spider-Man

    Two days after my birthday. YESSSSSSSSSSS

  • chroma816

    Not as good as the European one, but I don’t mind it. No figure means it’ll be tons less expensive.

    • British_Otaku

      The European limited edition is nearly $150 (£89.99 – so expensive that I’m having second thoughts even if I want SE to do good stuff), though I bet it would be priced at a cool 99.99 US Dollars if you guys got it. >_>

  • Yay. it is out at the beginning of the second semester of college. Joy.

  • Pockystix



  • gk2012

    Why does the US version get the lame cover art?

    • Suicunesol

      What the Hell? I thought that’s the box art every fan was clamoring for?

      • Zero_Destiny

        Definitely the box art I wanted. The original Japanese cover was so beautiful. :)

      • gk2012

        I feel like that any form of reply I give you as to why would end up being hint for a major spoiler…


  • vileBrenman

    This is the “for the sequel edition” right?

    • Pockystix

      apparently so

      we kind of lucked out, like with DQVIII

  • Kornelious

    Darn it. Really wanted that figure:( But I’m happy that I at least have something to put on my shelf :)

  • Go2hell66

    ouch CE got nerfed

  • JuhRo

    Bravely Default, Lightning Returns, ToS HD, DanganRonpa, RO Ace, EDF, Toukiden… possibly FFX/X-2 HD….
    February is looking really… expensive.. and time consuming.

      • ShadowDivz

        Earth Defense Force.

        I forgot it’s getting localized. It’s about you shooting gigantic insects. And since i hate bugs, that game is a god send.

  • katzedan

    Since it was the reason that I get a 3DS, I was really thinking about getting the collector edition. But without figure it’s not happening. Sorry Nintendo/S-E :(

    either way, can’t wait to play this :3

  • Suicunesol

    I’m a little surprised we got the black box art with the fairy on it. Those who liked that one instead of the new one should be very pleased.

  • ecoutercavalier

    With the good box art, no less.

    Worth the extra wait.

  • LegoBaka

    Collector’s edition without the figure is worthless. Standard edition it will be then.

    • ShadowDivz

      Not true. Some people don’t like figurines.
      I don’t understand why not, but some people just dont like em.

  • James Enk

    good for you guys:)

  • Ric Vazquez

    Can’t contain my hype anymore!

  • Logan Moll

    I dislike figures and big box CEs, anyway, so this is actually preferable to me. It will also surely mean that the price will be something within reason because the EU CE’s price is insanity.

  • LDM

    I am just really super glad and grateful to get an artbook. I can live without the figurine, as I don’t even care for them in the first place. Day One purchase for sure!

  • I think by then, my 3DS will need something to play. I guess I’ll pick this up. I’m one of the few folks on here who ignored most of the updates regarding this game, but more RPGs headed our way is always good news to me.

  • ShadowDivz

    Can someone link me to a trailer for this game? Since alot of people seem happy( and act like its a miracle its coming here) im curious.

  • Any particular reason for the absent of the figurine? I’m just curious…
