Square Enix Sped Up Bravely Default’s Battles, Tweaked Encounter Rate


Square Enix listened to feedback from the Bravely Default demos and tweaked the game. One of Bravely Default’s key features is you can attack up to four times in a row by using the "brave" command. This makes battles quicker compared to Final Fantasy games since you can wipe out weak enemies in a single turn.


In the demo, it took 20 seconds for both characters to do all of their attacks. The revised version of Bravely Default only takes 14 seconds and if that’s not fast enough you can hold down a button and fast forward battle animations. Square Enix also tweaked the encounter rate and AI for small fry enemies. We’ll get a better idea how these changes work on August 1 when the next Bravely Default demo comes out.
