Bravely Default is a role-playing game developed by Silicon Studio and released by Square Enix for Nintendo 3DS. Originally starting development as a sequel to Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, the game was released in Japan in 2012, and was later released in PAL regions in late 2013 and North America in early 2014, published by Nintendo.

In Japan, an expanded version of the game titled Bravely Default: For the Sequel (ブレイブリーデフォルト フォーザ・シークウェル) was released in late 2013. The new version features enhancements to the gameplay and new content not present in the original release. The localized versions of the game are based on the For the Sequel release.[1]

Story[edit]

Gameplay[edit]

Demo[edit]

For the international release of the game, a demo was released in Europe on November 14, 2013, and in North America on January 2, 2014. The demo requires 1867 blocks to download, and has 30 uses. The demo is set within the Harena Region of Luxendrac, and features a unique storyline from the full game. In the demo, players accept quests to defeat monsters for the townspeople. Players have access to nine of the job classes, which can only be leveled up to Level 4, and only a few of their abilities are made available. The demo also features dungeons based on those seen in the full game, but in a more simplified form, consisting of one or two levels before the boss battle. Players can unlock special sets of items within the demo, which can be transferred to the full version of the game.

Following the release of Bravely Default: For the Sequel, Square Enix would release a "free-to-play" version of the game, titled Bravely Default: For the Sequel – Full Free Play Edition, on July 28, 2014. This release allows players to play the first four chapters of the game free. Players can purchase an "upgrade kit" to play the remaining chapters as well as access the game's voice over and one part of the AR movie.[2][3]
