Bravely Default: Flying Fairy won’t be available until 2012, but Square Enix gave Nintendo 3DS owners a look at how their traditional RPG will utilize augmented reality via a downloadable app on Japan’s eShop. Actually, that should read *will* give owners a look because they haven’t given out AR cards yet.
With a little trick we were able to replicate an AR card early. After the application identifies the card, it starts an augmented reality cutscene of sorts. A pendant flies out of the card and a girl appears. She doesn’t stay on the card either, she walks all over the place and eventually falls into the floor.
You can’t see it in these photos, but the stones pop out a bit.
