Bravely Default is Finally Coming To Western Markets

By   /   3 years ago

During yesterday’s Nintedo Direct online presentation, it was revealed that Bravely Default: Flying Fairy will be finally coming to US and European market.

Developed by Silicon Studio, the developers of the critically acclaimed; 3D Dot Game Heroes, and Published by Square Enix, Bravely Default: Flying Fairy is the spiritual sequel to Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light. The game features several traditional RPG mechanics such as turn-based combat and job system. Flying Fairy also utilizes 3DS’ augmented reality and wireless functionality.

The game was initially released for 3DS in Japan in October 2011, and fans of the series have been left anticipating for its English localization for more than a year.

After the game’s producer revealed that the Square Enix had no plans to localize and release the game in the West, the fans of the game got together and started a campaign called Operation Brave, which had garnered more that 2.5 thousand supporters and might as well have been the catalyst that made this localization effort a reality.

If you find this scenario familiar, it is not due to a DejaVu. The situation with Bravely Default certainly does echo of the 2011 Operation Rainfall petition that gave way to localizations and release of Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story and Pandora’s Tower to Wii’s western markets.

The news of this localization comes at a time when there is already a sequel to the game being developed for PC, which had its open beta begin in November 2012, full five months ahead of the initial game’s localization announcement. The sequel, Bravely Default: Praying Brage, is set 200 years after the events of Flying Fairy and fill feature a new cast of characters as well as some, undisclosed, connection to 3DS functionality.

While no specific release date has been announced for the Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, the game is scheduled to be come to 3DS sometime this year in the Europe and in 2014 for North American markets.
