Patient JRPG fans who are still waiting for the localization of Square Enix’s Bravely Default: Flying Fairy have some good news to hold them steady for a little while longer. Square Enix has announced that an enhanced version being released in Japan, there called Bravely Default: For the Sequel, will be the version American fans will be getting.
Bravely Default: For the Sequel provides a lot more content with the game, including an improved battle system, quicker random battles, dual audio and more impressive environments. Essentially, it’s the same game improved upon since its first 2012 release date with all the time Square Enix has had to work on it.
While not a true sequel at all, this kind of package is standard practice for Square Enix. It frequently overhauls its games during their localization process and greatly improves upon all the criticisms seen by the Japanese fans. As a result, a more refined product finds its way to American shores.
Taking it a step further. though, this new version is packaged and resold to Japanese customers as an “International Edition” and has even more content added in the meantime. Thus famous games from the original Dragon Quest to Final Fantasy VII and Kingdom Hearts have multiple versions out there for collectors to grab and experience everything the title has to offer.
Bravely Default: Flying Fairy looks to be another one of those titles. From even way back in the days of the NES, when Enix first struck it big with Dragon Quest, the company hasn’t changed its localization process.
The game won’t be released until next year, but it is going to be yet another great addition to the 3DS’ amazing JRPG library. Keep an eye on this one.
