Bravely Default Developers Moved By Fan Anticipation From The West

The developers from Bravely Default have announced via Twitter that they are genuinely moved by the support that Nintendo fans have given them regarding their forthcoming JRPG. The team initially thought bringing the game overseas would be impossible as they just didn’t think the interest was there. Clearly it is, and Bravely Default launches on December 6th in Europe and February 7th in North America.

“Bravely Default is a game that was designed only taking RPG fans in Japan into consideration. We thought overseas expansion was impossible. Seeing this much anticipation moves me deeply.”

  1. that’s the only way the west will buy JRPG, craving for them, human nature as its finest, if you can’t have it, you want it even more

  2. I already have my Collectors edition pre-ordered. I look forward to February. Though I wish I could get the figure version as well.

    1. February is going to be an awesome month for RPG fans, Tales of Symphonia HD, Danganronpa: trigger happy havoc, Toukiden: age of deamon, FF 13-3 Lighting Returns, Fable Anniversary, Inazuma Eleven 3: Team Ogre Attacks, & Bravely Default.

  3. It’s nice to know that the developers are aware of the demand for this type of game. Localizations for the year have been pleasantly plentiful, with all types of genres and titles like Senran Kagura Burst, Hatsune Miku Project Diva f and Conception 2, to name a few fighting the odds and getting a shot outside of Japan.

    I wonder why Square has been so lax in this regard. It seems like only Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts have been localized by them lately, and even then they seem to be slacking with Type 0. I for one would love to see Dragon Quest X and the remake of Dragon Quest VII make it state side. It’s nice that Drakengard 3 is on the way, but I really hope Square can bring more of their stuff over. A lot of fans would appreciate it.

      1. I like it. It’s kind of like Code of Princess in terms of gameplay. The cel-shaded graphics are great and the voice acting is pretty good, albeit its only Japanese. I’ve enjoyed it so far.

  4. I have my Limited/Collector’s Edition Pre-ordered to show my support, even though they didn’t need to announce a special edition for me to buy the game. I did find it strange how amazon doesn’t have any version listed.

  5. A video game developer must never underestimate their own titles. If they make it play well and do some good trailers, then it can lead to anything.

    Take a look at Angry Birds (yes I know it’s only an app), but it was firstly a game for mobile platforms, now it’s ventured off into it’s own franchise and one of the most known around the world.
