Bravely Second screens, art ⊟
Few items we’ve learned about the game recently:
- Sales for Bravely Default (including the original version released in Japan), crossed one million units, 600,000 of those from the West
- Supercell’s ryo will provide new music for Bravely Second instead of Default's original composer Revo
- Producers Tomoya Asano and Shinji Takahashi, aided by Souki Tsukishima, will take over writing duties from Naotaka Hayashi
- Classes shown so far: Valkyrie, Performer, Red Mage, and Time Mage
- One of the cities featured in the game, Guatelatio (shown above), serves as the Crystal Orthodoxy’s headquarters, and “sits at the entrance to the highway that leads to the Temple of Earth and the Holy Land,” according to details from the official site translated by Gematsu
Agnès returns for Bravely Second ⊟
This Shonen Jump scan reveals that Bravely Default's heroine will return for the 3DS sequel. Along with the beautiful but oddly posed artwork of Agnès, we get a few tiny screenshots and a preview of job outfits for the follow-up's new main character Magnolia Arch. Thanks to @kazu4281 (via @Cheesemeister3k) for the scan!
Bravely Default x Smash Bros. ⊟
That Dark Knight Samus is ridic. Arthur will be bringing this — basically a bunch of Nintendo characters with Bravely Default jobs (plus Kirby as a Moogle) — as a print for sale at Anime Expo next week. Check out more his work on his Tumblr!
Fire Emblem: Awakening & Bravely Default for $32 each ⊟
Another stellar 3DS RPG on sale! Fire Emblem: Awakening is just $31.99 on Amazon right now, while Bravely Default is $31.66. At those prices, you can get two of the best RPGs from the last two years, for the same you’d pay if you bought something butt on a console like Lightning Returns.
$31.66, actually — you should grab this fun 3DS JRPG if you haven’t yet. I told JC about this deal, to which he responded, “More like… Savely Discount,” and so that’s why he’s not allowed to post on this site anymore.
The Konami code works with Bravely Default ⊟
Want to watch that special movie in Bravely Default that teases the JRPG’s sequel (it’s filled with spoilers, by the way!)? The video is supposed to unlock once you’ve completed the 3DS game, but you can load the clip whenever you want by just entering the Konami code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A) at the main menu! It has really become fashionaaabluh to stick this code in everything.
Bravely Default works perfectly with this meme ⊟
This is one of my favorite memes to come out of Japan in recent memory, from a Tokyo couple interviewed by a news station about a recent blizzard. Asked how he feels about the weather, the dude goes super cornball and says, “There’s something special in the air about being with your loved one when it’s snowing, so I like it!” Meanwhile his girlfriend (or wife) hides her face in embarrassment, hoping to die that instant.
It’s spawned hundreds of parody illustrations with anime and game characters, but my favorite is this one for Bravely Default — Ringabel and Edea seem perfect here. Big ups to Shishamo for the artwork, and to Snowhalation for posting about the meme on Tumblr.
Tinycast 023 - Bravely D
Tiny Cartridge • TinyCast
TinyCast 23! The usual crew catches up on indie eShop/PSN games, Sonic Boom and the state of Sega’s flagship franchise, and Bravely Default (JC had to jet, so we recorded the “what have we learned” segment early, but make sure to stick around after that!). Fun episode, even though half of us were sick!
"My little brother sent me this picture of me playing Bravely Default, and I am crying” ⊟
This is handheld gaming. It does not get more handheld gaming than this.
Thanks to Alex/Hokagreninja for letting us share this amazing photo.
Still want this Bravely Default 3DS XL case ⊟
Much like Bravely Default's collector's edition, these cases are no longer available on Amazon, and I'm very sad about this all. At least it looks like there are a couple of them on eBay.
Lots of Bravely Default posts popped up on gaming sites today, which is a good thing since a lot of you who ordered the game online are still waiting for it to arrive (hopefully this doesn’t happen to your order — or this nightmare scenario). Here are some of those links:
- Kotaku’s Tips for Playing Bravely Default
- Joystiq made one of those too
- USgamer’s Eight Great RPGs You Should Play if You Like Bravely Default and several Bravely Default guides
Game tips/guides must be significant traffic draws for these sites now! Credit to Staci for the pic.
PREORDER Bravely Default, upcoming games
Hang out with Nintendo and… Best Buy? for Bravely Default ⊟
Nintendo and Best Buy are partnering for a Google Hangout to promote Bravely Default, and I don’t even know. I mean, I know when (8PM ET Feb. 11) and where (here), but, like…
Who from Nintendo will be there talking Bravely D? And what “gaming bloggers” have been invited to join them? And what will we learn? And… huh?
(Oh, by the way, the game’s out today!)

Bravely Default CE unboxed ⊟
This Nintendo Minute features an unboxing of the Bravely Default Collector’s Edition. This is potentially worth watching for one of three reasons.
Either 1) you’re excited about the CE, have one preordered, and want a nice preview of what you’re getting. Or 2) you’re on the fence about whether to get the CE or the regular version, and you want a look at the contents to help you decide.
Or 3) you don’t have room in your house for a big game box, and you can just watch this video, see the cool stuff, and then just *imagine* trying to stuff it into your shelf, before you get the game on eShop.
