  • I’ve played the demo. For me it’s a bit of a mixed bag leaning towards good. There’s a few things I’m having to get used to but it kind of reminds me off FF3/5 in that regard at its core.

    • Brimfyre

      I’m in the same boat. I was really looking forward to it until I played the demo, now I’m still going to get it, but it killed a lot of my enthusiasm.

      • PreyMantis

        Why? I’m just curious.

        • Brimfyre

          It reminded me a lot of that Guild 01 game that was like table top gaming. I know it’s nothing like that, but it had that “budget title with an interesting concept” feel about it.

          Like I said I still liked it. Also, demo’s in general kill my mood for nearly every game. It’s hard to jump into the middle of a storyline for me. I need the build up of meeting characters and learning how to use them.

          • PreyMantis

            Ahh, okay. True, all of the four characters were there, but the demo barely even touched the main story, so it’s kinda weird for you to feel like that.

          • Brimfyre

            Four characters, whom I don’t know, in a world I have no idea what it is or why it exists, in a random town. I’d say that all of that will be explained in a few hours from the actual game. So yes, I’d say it is in the middle of the story.

            I’m not saying it is bookened by scenes from the main villain saying why he wants to destroy the world, but it is in the middle of the story.

            I’m happy they made this demo, side story, it just wasn’t for me. Still going to get the game.

          • SwiftWind

            Weird, considering the demo was an entirely new scenario created specifically for that purpose and was not taken from the main story whatsoever…

            EDIT: Though I do believe the location is an actual place in the game.

          • James Enk

            EU here, the demo is more of a presentation and not much of an actual piece of the game, the town is in the game, the dungeons of the demo are parts of the dungeons of the game, the side-quest of the demo are not like the side-quest of the full game and the place you are in is at the beginning of the game

          • yomachaser

            It’s not in any story at all, the demo purposely doesn’t reflect anything from the game story and exists to get a handle on the mechanics.

          • Brimfyre

            Yeah I believe I mentioned that already.

          • pressstart

            Ah yes, there was an article not too long ago where they showed that sales of games seem to be lower if a demo was available than if it wasn’t. Your experience is definitely not out of the ordinary.

      • LastFootnote

        Wow, for me it was exactly the opposite. My only frame of reference was Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, which I couldn’t like, no matter how much I wanted to. I had really low expectations for Bravely Default, but the demo just blew me away. I love the combat system and the small, no-nonsense town (talking about the actual town in the demo, not the rebuilding mini-game town). I played until I’d maxed out all my levels and jobs and beaten all the bosses on hard difficulty. I’m eagerly awaiting the full game.

        • Abysswalker90

          Wow, that’s some extensive demo.

      • Doctor Nebula

        From what I’ve heard, the demo doesn’t show what’s really good about the game. It just gives you quest and you kill, which the game isn’t all about. However, if you’re talking about the battle system, then I guess it’s just not for you.

      • Critic2029

        I’m not one to complain about the 3ds’ resolution, because its fine most of the time, but after playing the demo it really feels like it should be in hd.

    • Christopher Nunes

      I never played ANY of the previous Final Fantasy games 1 – 6 and the first one I played was 7 when I was a kid when it first came out for the PS1 (my dad got it I believe but he wasn’t big on RPGs and I was so I gave it a whirl) and I didn’t make it through the first half of disc 1 as I wasn’t sure what I was doing at the time.

      It’s been a long time and can’t remember well.

      Trying out Brave Default and it is very fun, still haven’t finished the demo, though my characters get poison WAY too enough though that’s because the normal enemies are those snakes.

      Anyway I can’t wait to try out the full game, going to enjoy having a Dual Sword wielding character, never enough of those kind of characters in RPG including Action RPG which I would love to see more of.

      • I will say me mentioning it reminds me of FF5 is a compliment – FF5 was my first back in ’98. I’d say look that one up if you get a chance if you enjoy Bravely Default so far.

        • Christopher Nunes

          I might, I do like Final Fantasy game though FFXIII didn’t hold my interest for long and the tedious grinding and slow linear story kinda killed it for me, but I do want to beat it and get it over with.

          I hear great things about FF6 and like to try that one out.

          • FF5 I’ve beaten more than a few times already – there’s many ways to play the game because of the job system, much of the reason I have faith in Bravely Default because of what I saw in the job system they presented.

            Another major reason I recommend FF5 is that it is two player in that you can assign controllers to certain characters…so I’ll usually take two, another person will take two and we’ll play the game for 25-40 hours casual.

            FF6 is probably my favorite but I do have my reasons for loving FF5 considering it’s where I started in the FFverse.

          • Christopher Nunes

            I see, that’s interesting to know. I’ll give it a chance now, but I’m press for time nowadays.

            Well I could always play a little bit each day.

      • Uso Ewin

        If you liked this and wanted to get a feel of what it could be like, the games Final Fantasy: 4 heroes of light and Final Fantasy 3 ds have somewhat similar character designs and gameplay.

  • At the beginning here. I still only have White Magic, Black Magic, Monk & w/e you start with.

    • biskmater

      Gio, is that you?

      • Yeah. The avatar should give it away :D

  • TheExile285

    I hadn’t seen a few of these. Spell Fencer looks pretty cool.

    • 하세요

      It’s a great sub class. It’s pretty useless as a main class, so either level it up for subclass purposes or Abilink with someone who already has it a higher level.

    • Kaetsu

      If you’ve played Dragon Quest 9 it’s a lot like the Armamentalist. In my opinion it’s not a very useful class/job.

  • AlteisenX

    Played about 20 hours of the demo (maxing stuff) and while I had fun, the battle system has some serious tuning issues that need addressed. I think they would’ve been better off using a command style like Mana Khemia instead of stacking turns but that’s more of a subjective problem. The waiting game and villagers thing was pretty bleh (though that 20 villager glitch will be nice). Overall, I’m looking forward to the game, but the demo was a really poor representation of the game.

    • Christopher Nunes

      20 Village Glitch?

      • There’s a point where you’re given a free villager, but you can exploit it to get as many as you want. Turn off auto save and around the time you get the quest to kill the second boss an npc near the spell shop will give you a villager when you talk to him. Save before you do, and because the village auto saves regardless and independently of the main save you can reload your save as many times as you need to fill your village.

        • Christopher Nunes

          That’s kinda cool!

          So it’s AFTER I beat the second boss that’s part of a quest in the demo, first, right? So when I get there turn off Auto-Save, save my game, then get the Villager and reload the save again and again to fill my village.

          So you can only get 20 of them? How many do you need to complete all the building in the demo?

          • MrSirFeatherFang

            Do not save after getting the free villager. Go talk to the save merchant (whatever he is) click on “Save” (you don’t actually save yet). Then go to Title. Reload save, rinse and repeat.

            Norende Village saves that villager, but you didn’t technically save the game, so you can get as many villagers as you want. Only 20 transfer to the real game though.
            Getting more villagers just make building the villager faster.

          • Christopher Nunes

            So go talk to the Save Merchant and clicked “Save”? What do you mean it doesn’t “actually” save the game?

            That’s a little confusing as I need more detail to work on because I feel like I will screw up somehow and miss the Infinite Villager Glitch for the demo to finish building the village faster.

            So I get that I need to save BEFORE I get the Free Villager, but at the Save Merchant do you mean skip the “save” part and ask to go back to the Title or is there something I missing here to make sure I don’t lock myself out of getting as many free villagers as I want?

          • MrSirFeatherFang

            When you talk to him, then click save, it brings you to another menu that also asks you to save (this option is when the game will actually save). There are other options in that menu, one I believe is “Friends” and the other one is Title.
            Hit that one and just reload save, talk to the dude, go back to title and repeat.

          • Christopher Nunes

            Alright, thanks. That cleared it up a bit for me. ^_^

          • Christopher Nunes

            So which Quest is it that gives me the Free Villager?

          • MrSirFeatherFang

            You play up until the 2nd boss of the demo (Adamantite) that looks like a turtle. The boss is northeast in the forest.

            This is when you can get that free villager from that one NPC. He is somewhere between the spell shop and equipment shop during the day.

          • Christopher Nunes

            I’ll be sure to remember it, but I got someone saying it’s after you turn in the Quest for the First Boss you get the Free Villager and it’s the NPC away from the shop.

            So bloody confusing… I can’t tell who’s right until the game mentions it. >_>

          • MrSirFeatherFang

            Don’t remember that, but don’t worry, if you only talk to the people with blue on the bottom (quest givers) of the screen, you will never encounter him. I got my villager AFTER finishing the whole demo lol.

            Unfortunately, I didn’t get to do this trick on my game, but I did it for my friend. Just keep moving along, you’ll do fine ;)

          • Christopher Nunes

            Oh, it’s actually a regular NPC between the Spell Shop and Weapon Shop after you turn in the Quest for the first or second boss quest.

            Save first then talk to him, the guy cleared it up for me. That explained it. ^_^

        • Christopher Nunes

          Which quest is it? I just beat the Second Boss, the rock turtle in the forest, so was it that quest or the one that’s about to come after?

          I like to know so I’ll be prepared.

  • 하세요

    Only jobs I was disappointed were the magic based ones. Melee attacks trump overall damage and Tier 3 spells simply cost way too much MP. Early on it’s godly though. Especially Red Mage – I honestly do not recommend bothering with this job at all unless you really want Revenge at Lv11.

    • Ghoul_Aid

      Red Mage’s costume sure looks good on Ringabel, though.

      • 하세요

        Yeah, many of the good-looking outfit jobs turn out to be pretty cruddy main jobs ._. S’all good once you get the additional outfits towards the end of the game, assuming you get specific shops to Lv11 in the village.

      • Red mages always look good.

  • Ric Vazquez

    Man the hype is driving me nuts

  • I’ve long since completed everything there is to do in the demo and I find myself firing it up and refighting the bosses just for the hell of it

  • These jobs all remind me of the jobs in FFV, which was an underrated FF in my opinion.

    • Yup. As stated above.

    • BeatTheGG

      Oddly enough V was in my top 5 FF games ever so I’m definitely going to get this game some time soon. I love the throwback turn base and Yoshida-sans character designs were always great.

    • Exkaiser

      Bravely Default is to FFV what 4HoL was to III. Kind of like a reimagining of it.

  • Junko Enoshima

    I’m getting a bit antsy…and that time mage costume looks impeccable~

  • Cyrus

    You poor people at America. D=

  • Ganali Castillo

    Does someone know if this game will be released on the Nintendo shop as well ? Cant pre-order it due to region.

    • James Enk

      if you mean the e-shop then yes

    • Sentsuizan_93

      Don’t see why it shouldn’t. The EU version is on eShop, so I guess the NA version should be as well

      • 하세요

        To be fair, it’s not in the Japanese eShop. Retail only.

        • It is on the Japanese eShop. And people that already own the original Bravely Default in Japan got to download For the Sequel at a significant discount.

  • ndjn3979

    This gonna be good~~~~

  • safeto20scroll

    Everyone on the fence for this, do not worry. Bravely Default is everything u come to expect from traditional FF titles.
    However the story might not be as epic as say FFVI and foward, it is actually much like the DS version of FFIII with regards to the class system and gameplay.

    The environments and art direction is very similar to 4HoL – but on a much bigger scale.

    Also the biggest part of the game are the characters, once u get to know Ringabel u cant stop liking him xD

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Can’t wait! It’s been paid off since it was available for pre-order. The demo was interesting, but I’m ready to dive into the full story.

  • SerChief

    OMG look at the tiny cuties! And those job classsess!! But damn; gotta get a 3DS :/

  • Pandakids09 .

    Couple of more weeks then this game will be mine!

  • Happy Gamer

    Played the demo and I really like it alot. reminds me of the older Square RPGs I used to play so I guess that’s why I love them. I can see people who don’t like that era’s RPGs being turned off, but in the end I think everyone’s should at least try the game! The Default thingy alone is pretty fun for combat.

  • DragKudo

    I wonder why they didn’t just put Time spells with black or white magic?

    • 하세요

      Time Mage is a very common job in FF games, especially the standard turn-based ones. It would’ve been rather weird if it were otherwise.

  • ninjabart122

    Never played any of the Final Fantasy games before, but I definitely enjoyed the Bravely Default demo with roughly 12 hours of playtime.

    Can’t wait to pick up Deluxe Collector’s Edition. Would’ve liked to get the statue, even if it did look funky.

  • Espoir

    Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaa, can’t wait >.<

  • TGS Babay (Umar)

    This is a pretty special game. Took a while for it to pick up but the production value is outstanding. Sure it’s your typical Crystal story, but the real core and heart of the game lies in the characters themselves and how they interact with each other…I haven’t felt this attached to a bunch of heroes in a long time.

  • Learii

    that all the jobs?

    • J_Joestar

      pretty sure it isn’t considering they don’t actually cover the entire wheel of jobs they show.
