The JRPG never made its way to America until earlier this year, but has nonetheless been a hit with 3DS owners and RPG fans. In fact, the game sold over 200,000 units in the first few weeks after it launched.
It wasn’t long after the list was originally posted that some of the highest-profile Nintendo 3DS games of 2013 finally launched. The task of picking and choosing the best titles became far more challenging toward the end of the year, when I started thinking about revising my original Top 10 list.
Admittedly, 2014 has been slightly less consistent for 3DS games, but there have still been a few excellent new releases. Indeed, the library of “must-own” 3DS titles continues to expand.
With all of that in mind, check out the ‘revised’ Top 10 list after the break – there are several newer titles that earned a rightful place among the elites of the Nintendo 3DS.
As much as I loved the recent demo for Bravely Default - and I loved it a lot, sinking almost a dozen hours into its content - I was less enthusiastic about its story, and more interested in its battle system, various jobs and abilities, and its slick StreetPass features.
Since the demo did such a shoddy job of revealing any background details about the four heroes of the game, check out this new story-based trailer, which reveals slightly more about the cast in the full version of Bravely Default.
Bravely Default will finally be available February 7.
Among the trailers revealed during this morning’s Nintendo Direct was a new video and information about Bravely Default, the Square-Enix RPG that launches next February. More details after the break! Continue reading →
Although Bravely Default still isn’t coming to North America until February 2014, it looks like the extensive wait might be worth it all along: early reviews from across the pond are particularly positive, with impressive scores to match the raving critiques. Continue reading after the break for some of the early impressions and the first European review scores published on the ‘net.
Bravely Default, the impressive-looking Square-Enix RPG that I’ve been raving about for months now, has finally been given its North American release date – more details (and a new trailer) after the break. Continue reading →
Bravely Default was playable at a recent European gaming event, and someone was kind enough to capture 14 minutes of off-screen gameplay footage. Check out the video below:
Apparently, the official subtitle is “Where the Fairy Flies”, which is at least a little better than “Flying Fairy” or “For the Sequel”. I still prefer calling the game Bravely Default, without any ridiculous-sounding subtitles.
Anyway, this one comes out in Europe in December, and North America in early 2014.
Another Nintendo Direct update; Square-Enix’s Bravely Default has been confirmed for a December 6 release in Europe, with a Q1 2014 release in North America. Check out the latest trailer of the game below:
Many are calling Bravely Default a reboot of the Final Fantasy series; I have personally been looking forward to this one for quite some time, so be sure to come back for any updates I can find between now and the western release of the game.
Square-Enix recently revealed Bravely Default: For the Sequel, an enhanced version of Bravely Default: Flying Fairy that features nearly 100 changes and additions to the original JRPG. It was also confirmed that For the Sequel will be the version of the game that is released in North America sometime next year.
Keep reading after the break for a detailed list of the enhancements featured in For the Sequel, as well as the first footage of the game in action.
