Bravely Second – New Footage Reveals Jobs and More

New footage from Bravely Second – the sequel to Square=Enix’s hit JRPG Bravely Default – has emerged, revealing some information about the jobs / classes found in the series’ second installment.

The video is entirely Japanese, but gives you a nice look at a few different areas found in the game, various jobs, and the appearance of the characters using them. Check it out:

Stay tuned for more about Bravely Second as more details emerge; also keep an eye out for the Bravely Default retrospective review that I have been meaning to get around to publishing for quite some time now.

Final Fantasy Explorers – Knight, Monk and Black Mage Videos

Square-Enix has released some new footage of Final Fantasy Explorers, the latest installment in its exclusively cooperative multiplayer Final Fantasy spin-offs.

Although FF Explorers has only been confirmed in Japan (set for launch December 18), it looks pretty damn cool – and I am really hoping for a western version in the future.

Alas, I am getting off-track. After the jump you can check out three new videos detailing the Knight, Monk and Black Mage Jobs in Final Fantasy Explorers - unfortunately they are in Japanese.  Continue reading

Bravely Default – One Million Units Sold Worldwide

Square-Enix’s 3DS-exclusive role-playing game, Bravely Default, has officially sold more than one million units worldwide since its initial launch in October 2012.

These sales figures include units sold via eShop; I find it particularly interesting to point out that Japanese sales account for only 40% of the total units so far.

This means over 600,000 copies have been purchased elsewhere; clearly it was the right move when Square-Enix finally decided to localize the game for multiple regions.

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.

Stay tuned for our retrospective review of Bravely Default - the game did earn a spot (#10) on our Top 10 Nintendo 3DS Games list.

Bravely Default – Story Trailer

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.

Bravely Default – Early Reviews From Europe

For those lucky enough to live in Europe, Square-Enix’s 3DS-exclusive RPG, Bravely Default, is just over a week away from launch. I feel like I have been waiting for this Final Fantasy “reboot” for ages; I was absolutely thrilled when it was confirmed for western regions earlier this year.

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 – New Off-Screen Footage

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.

Bravely Default – New Trailer, December Release in Europe

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.
