Bravely Default: Flying Fairy Coming To Europe This Year, Enhanced Version On The Way

Posted by Orla Madden

Bravely Default: For The Sequel is flying West

Back in August, we reported that Square Enix was working on Bravely Default: For the Sequel on the 3DS, an updated version of the original Bravely Default: Flying Fairy.

Gamers in the West have been eagerly anticipating the upcoming RPG since localisation was confirmed, but there still hasn't been a release date.

Nintendo has confirmed that Bravely Default: Flying Fairy is indeed coming this year, despite revealing through its financial reports back in July that it was pushed back to 2014. This isn't the only good news, as the company has also announced that it'll be the enhanced version that will be flying to European 3DS consoles.

The improved version of the game has been given a bit of a graphical make-over, and is set to feature a new and improved user-face, additional difficulty settings, with three new difficulty levels and the adjustment of enemy encounter rates. It's also possible to choose between the Japanese or English audio tracks.

Below you can watch the first trailer for the English version of Bravely Default: For the Sequel, and be sure to let us know your thoughts on the game in the comment section.

Guess you should be thankful...

Be sure to tell us Americans how amazing it is while we wait an extra month or 3 chomping at the bit to play it.

Can't wait for it! :3 Good thing it's getting delayed for NA, my backlog is enormous. Then with Pokemon coming as well as Ace Attorney and LttP, I'm pretty set for the rest of this year. Glad to see that they've included the option of the Japanese audio track like FE:A.

I'm going to have to borrow money just to get this then. It is one of my most anticipated 3DS titles that I cannot afford to miss out on!

Wait… so is America getting the original version and Eirope getting the enhanced version, or are we both going to get the same version?
Not to mention it's a little strange to get an enhanced version so quickly, and so oddly titled…
So "For The Sequel" is the exact same story, but with graphical and gameplay improvements and additions?

@ChessboardMan both are getting the enhanced version, form what i understand the game was very successful in japan so they are already working on the sequel (hence the "for the sequel"). After the game came out they asked their player base to tell them what improvements they would have liked in the sequel and came up with a list of 20 thing, most of which ( ui update etc) are being added to this enhanced version. But story wise it's exactly the same game.

Still kind of lousy that the original version was never localized. I feel like we'll be missing something.

@Technosphile You will not. This is a enhanced version. Just modified a few in chapter 7&8, which is not very good in original version. All the other modifications are all about the system, which only add options (e.g., faster gameplay, more save slots, can reply movies, and more languages even in Japanese version, and the last factor propably explains why Europe and US will get this version).

I'll be fine with the wait if the NA version gets a better subtitle than the UK version... it's still Bravely Default: Where the Fairy Flies, right?

@CanisWolfred dont worry too much. I was really upset I couldnt play through Virtues last reward with english dub (since im European) but I got used to japanese in the end and enjoyed it:)

With this, Pokemon and (hopefully) SMT4 the rest of the year looks quite nice for me.

Enjoying Soul Hackers atm.

E: Also, thank goodness for english audio, Virtue's last reward japanece VA was quite annoying.

Same, my frustration actually stopped me from picking it up for awhile, and yet now that I've watched videos of both I think I was better off with the Japanese cast despite the great cast they got together.
Anyways, the video link isn't working for me either.

I was also mythed that we didn't get the English subs for Virtues Last Reward, I'm glad that we will for Bravely Default.

With everything coming out at the end of this year, I actually don't mind waiting till early 2014. It's better to have great games spread out then have them all come out during only part of the year. Keeps you playing all year long.

Still will be getting this as soon as it comes out though. And English voiceovers never usually bother me, even with how high pitched and squeaky they tend to be. Japanese voiceovers just tend to annoy me after a while.
