Bravely Default: Flying Fairy Trailer Shows Brand New Footage


At today’s Japanese Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo showed off a new trailer for Square Enix’s Bravely Default: Flying Fairy. The trailer showed a mix of both cutscenes and in-game footage, and you can watch it below, courtesy of YouTube user, Nintendaan:



Bravely Default is described by producer, Tomoya Asano, as a classic-style RPG. The game has a job system like Final Fantasy V and The 4 Heroes of Light. Jobs are tied to crystals and one of the crystals in the game unlocks the Monk, Black Mage and White Mage jobs. The Knight job is confirmed to be in the game, too, and in a surprise twist, enemies in Bravely Default have jobs as well.


As you play through Bravely Default, you collect more jobs along the way. The game’s main story follows four characters and sub-scenarios, which is where you can find additional jobs. Developer, Silicon Studio, also included multiple endings.


The game will be released sometime this year, but Square haven’t announced a release date yet. A third demo for the game is headed to the Japanese Nintendo eShop soon.
