Raise your hands if you want “Bravely Default: Flying Fairy” released outside of Japan. Woah, too many hands to count. Okay, raise your hands if you don’t want it released outside of Japan…okay, that’s a total of 0.
The latest demo for the game has launched on the Japanese Nintendo eShop, which has given us some insight into some of the jobs this classic, yet modern RPG features:
– Superstar. Apparently the guys look like an Elvis parody while the women are Bunny girls. Their weapon of choice is swords (come on, could have been an axe!). They can pass “Brave Points” onto other characters, effectively giving them another turn.
– Red Mages. A staple in RPGs, the Red Mage returns and has the “Revenge” class ability, which gives them a “Brave Point” each time they are attacked. They wear flamenco apparel.
– Mystic Knights. Members of this Arabian-styled class boost magic damage as their class ability.
– Knights. The game’s defensive class who can take attacks for weakened party members.
– Freelancers. These guys gain more power based on how many previous jobs the character has had using their “Late Bloomer” ability.
Some of the previously mentioned bonuses about having a character experience multiple jobs was detailed, such as a superstar who was previously a red mage can use red magic and can automatically counter with a fire spell if attacked.
As the title suggests, details on the game’s “Friend Summon” ability was expanded on. Players you have on your Friends List or randomly meet via StreetPass can be summoned into battle, with said character getting more powerful with subsequent summons. However, they seemingly only have one command, which can be manually set by that character’s owner.
This game is looking better and better by the minute. Are you as hyped for this game as we are? Let’s just hope this game gets localised!
