What's that? They want a crappy game that rips off Final Fantasy 3? In an attempt to capture the old days and not remove bad stuff like Random Encounters? I'll never support Kotaku; no matter what situation.

This is not about supporting Kotaku, it is about bringing one of the best RPGs of all time in US/European 3DS

And Bravely Default is such a game, all impressions so far suggest that, i dont see wat Kotaku has to do with anything TBH

The petition has nothing to do with Kotaku anyway

Here is some BD praise from the press

Bravely Default: Flying Fairy (Japan)

Real gameplay abounds in the latest demo from Square Enix!

The past two demos for Bravely Default: Flying Fairy have been a little on the disappointing side in terms of content. The Tokyo Game Show demo, as well as the one released in late February, focused mainly on the Augmented Reality functionality of the Nintendo 3DS and gave gamers little to do in the sense of traditional gameplay. The most recent demo, titled Bravely Default: Flying Fairy Demo Vol. 2: Zetsubō no yūsha Torēningu-hen (Heroes of Despair Volume) greatly expands upon the good points found in the previous demos, giving players a chance for a more traditional gaming experience.

The demo opens by introducing you to a new character named Tiz Oria, a 16-year-old boy taking care of sheep with his younger brother. As they herd the sheep closer to the outskirts of their village, the two witness the village being engulfed and destroyed by an oncoming wave of destruction. As the wave rushes toward the boys, the video cuts and you are taken to the title screen of the demo.

The map of the town looks exactly like this artwork

This time, the demo gives you two options, both listed in English: play game and AR movie. The first option puts you in control of Tiz and places you in Kaldizura (this is a direct translation from the original katakana. I’m not too sure what they’ll call this in the English version), which is the country where you start the game. From here, you are free to explore the town. While the demo doesn’t focus on the fighting elements of the game, it does focus on non-playable character interactions. Throughout the town, there are a handful of people you are able to assist. For example, an old man really needs some assistance getting some water. After telling him you would be willing to help him out, you have to find a source of water in the town and then return to him with a containerful, after which you receive a reward. This demo focuses heavily on these kinds of interactions and feels a lot more fleshed out than the previous demos, making it more akin to what the final product will exhibit.

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."

"Bravely Default: Flying Fairy is one of the best traditional RPGs I've played in years, and probably the best new IP to come out of Square Enix since The World Ends With You. If you have a Japanese 3DS, you should own this game. For those of you that don't have one? Start sending SE your letters demanding BD:FF be released in English. A game as good as this deserves to be experienced."

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/32 ... iting-for/

"The game itself features random encounters and turn-based battles, powered by a classic job system reminiscent of FFV. It's not yet been revealed how the AR tech shown at TGS will be implemented, but we certainly hope it will be an innovation rather than a shiny gimmick. Either way, Bravely Default is shaping up to be the RPG that many nostalgic Final Fantasy fans are pining for.

"But cross your fingers. Despite its name, Bravely Default really is the sort of Final Fantasy experience gamers have been clamoring for. With luck, we'll be playing it ourselves sooner rather than later."

Actually previews say it is more like a cross between FF9 and FF5

And with amazing new art of course

I dont see anything wrong with beeing similar to some of the best games of all time

I want this game so bad. I don't like Kotaku either, but I can agree with them on this. Final Fantasy 3 (I'm assuming you are talking about 6) is one of the best games ever made, easily in my top 5 favorite games of all time. Squaresoft is obviously not going back to what made Final Fantasy so great in the first place(with the Final Fantasy franchise), so I don't have a problem with them making a different franchise to do that with. I do have a problem with them not releasing it here.

You're suggesting they are ripping off their own game. Just putting that out there.

Like saying Majora's Mask rips off of Ocarina of Time, or that Pokemon rips off of Pokemon.

Reusing an engine and set-up, from another game you made, is not ripping off. It's more or less a spiritual successor to their own series.

On top of that, nearly all RPGs from any one company tends to be similar to other RPGs by the same company.

@kingbroly

It's not.

@MoldyClay

My issue with the entire thing is that square Enix took quite a beating for awhile. So, with the intent of bringing back some fans, they decided to bring back all the things that make final fantasy "good". Too bad it's very dated and terrible to the point that they rip the own games off.

@broken_cartridge

Type 0 REALLY pissed me off... Not only did it had those issues, but the gameplay, story, level design, and characters all remind me why I hate final fantasy and a lot of badly made JRPGs.

Rich from IGN is trying to garner support for Bravely Default. Everyone, jump on your Twitter machines and give him a hand!

Hopefully this great game makes it to US/Europe at some point

Bravely Default Game info thread (english) with every bit of art - news etc about the game

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=510483

I think the game has very slim chances to come outside Japan, SQUARE simply doesnt seem to care or aknowledge the demand for this one at all

Just looking at the publisher and screenshots of the game, I'm hoping it isn't just another Final Fantasy clone. Square-Enix seems to have dug themselves into a rut with games that are all becoming alike.

I would get it for the story alone, considering the story is by the guy who created Steins;Gate. Well... the gameplay has to be somewhat decent (Which it seems from what I've played) otherwise... maybe not.

Oh man, I had no idea the story was by the creator of Steins;Gate. I loved that series. I really want to see this game now...
