Bravely Default: Flying Fairy Impressions
"The map of the town looks exactly like this artwork.
Visually, the art style is breathtaking and the music is a complete joy to listen to. There are times when the camera pans out to give you a full view of the town (usually when you don’t press anything for a few seconds), which looks exactly the same as previously revealed artwork for the game. The visuals mixed in with the 3D character models give the game a unique feel."

List of jobs

http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_Bravely_Default:_Flying_Fairy_Jobs




A look at Bravely Default&#8217;s gameplay features

http://www.finalfantasy.net/bdff/bravely-defaults-gameplay-features/

Jobs & Abilities Bravely Default features 24 jobs, all roles one would find at home in a Final Fantasy game: Monk, Black Mage, and Knight for example. Changing jobs will require the use of an Asterisk, and new jobs are obtained by defeating the Jobmasters associated with them.

The game has over 300 abilities associated to its many jobs, and you&#8217;ll be able to mix and match from different types once you&#8217;ve mastered them to a certain point. This also applies to support abilities, so if your White Mage is a bit frail, train them as a Monk for a while to gain the HP+10% ability.

Brave & Default Combat in Bravely Default makes use of two distinct commands: Brave and Default. In battle you&#8217;ll accumulate Brave Points (BP) with which to execute consecutive commands in your turn. Build up enough Brave Points and you&#8217;ll be able to use a Phoenix Down item, cast a Blizzard spell, and attack in one turn. However, you&#8217;ll need to do this by choosing the Default command to build BP by passing your turn and entering a defensive stance.

Enemies will also make use of the Brave & Default system, even bosses &#8212; so tread with caution in your assault. Multiple strong attacks from a boss will leave your party hurting, especially if they have little BP left to recover.

Summon & Deathblow There are five summoned monsters in Bravely Default: Prometheus (Fire), Ziusudra (Water), Hraesvelgr (Wind), Girtablilu (Earth), and Deus Ex (Lightning). These powerful commands will come with an elaborate summon sequence.

A Limit Break-esque system called Deathblow can be used to execute powerful attacks based on your weapon and it&#8217;s respective strength. In the above trailer, we see Tizz as a Red Mage perform a Deathblow with daggers equipped. There are a total of 27 different Deathblows, all ranked on your current job in efficacy.

StreetPass & Abilink Using Streetpass, you&#8217;ll be able to download your friends&#8217; job character data. This is used in a few different ways. First, you&#8217;ll be able to summon your friends&#8217; characters in battle aid you &#8212; summoning them frequently will strengthen them, similar to Final Fantasy VIII&#8217;s Guardian Forces. You&#8217;ll also be able to unlock levels for your jobs beyond the Level 10 cap using this system.

Norwend Village You&#8217;ll be able to rebuild Tizz&#8217;s hometown of Norwend one step at a time, which includes managing NPCs and shops. These shops, when successful enough, can sell you items and equipment found nowhere else in the game. It will take you a long time to complete, but using StreetPass can help you attract more NPCs to increase growth.


And another interesting article (for the pics/characters)

Because one thousand votes on an online petition has motivated large games companies to budge on bringing games overseas.

I'm sure Square Enix is quickly doing something about that Bravely Default localization now that they know that at least one thousand people in North America will probably go out of their way to buy this game.

How about, instead of marketing S-E's games for them, they can either announce a localisation or not announce one and let the chips fall where they may? I'm not gonna beg.

I honestly lost interest in this game a while ago. It is hard for me to care about anything SE had a hand in lately. I will still sign the petition though.

I'm pretty sure this will show up at E3 or nintendo's next 3DS nintendo direct thing. It took like a year to get four heroes of light. If it's not there at both E3 and nintendo's next 3DS related nintendo direct, then maybe its time to panic..

BDFF not being localized considering it is on 3DS implies a problem.

Type 0 they could get away with, due to the whole Vampire System ordeal.

It's not really a mystery. KH3D and Theatrhythm both sold less than expected. The problem is that the casual gamers who used to boost sales of these games on DS have moved on to mobile.

Personally, I would love if they localized it anyway but nothing about them deciding to skip it is really mysterious.

Considering how old school this game is, I honestly wouldn't be surprised at all to see it on iOS since it plays similar to FFIII and FFIV.

(And if Square USA leave this with Type-0 in their fail list, I'm done with them.)

It'll be simple to be done with them, since they'll only release trash games like Lightning Returns. Never buying that shit will be easy.

Devs basically deconfirmed that. They are already working on a sequel supposedly.

This title did sell a deal better then it's predecessor 4HoL.

A little OT here, but is 4 heroes of light a good game? I've been building up my DS rpg library lately and that is one game I've been keeping an eye on for a good deal.

I don't think the same people who made it would be working on a theoretical iOS port. I stress theoretical.
