Naotaka Hayashi, the creator behind the oddly named Bravely Default: Flying Fairy has explained to Japanese publication Famitsu why the development team decided to give the game such a bizarre name. Bravely Default apparently refers to bravely taking the step towards turning your back on your promises and responsibilities. Here’s a few more choice quotes about Square Enix’s forthcoming JRPG.
- Naotaka is responsible for creating the entire scenario plot and themes, as well as defining all the characters in the game. He is also writing the actual text script in the game, although he does work with both Square Enix and Silicon Studio staffers to iron out the finer details of the story.
- The game will be pretty character driven, with the characters in the game learning that their personal views don’t always match with that of a world at large, and while they begin with certain missions or goals, such conflicts will cause them to question their approach towards the world and others.
- The title of the game is Bravely Default. What does it mean? It actually means exactly what you might think it means. It refers to bravely taking the step towards turning your back on your promises and responsibilities.
