Nintendo To Publish Bravely Default In South Korea… But Not In Korean

Just like in the west, Nintendo are publishing Bravely Default in South Korea. The game will be available on April 16th as a download title for the eShop. There’s just one major difference—it won’t be localized into Korean.


Instead, the Korean release of Bravely Default is the same one that was released in the West, and will include all the languages that we have access to on the cartridge.


This contrasts the release of Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy, another Square Enix game, in South Korea. In the case of that game, Square Enix handled publishing duties, although they didn’t localize that title either—Theatrhythm was released in South Korea in English as well.


Nintendo have localized other third-party 3DS games specifically for South Korea in the past, though. For instance, Shin Megami Tensei IV was localized into Korean.
