As of 2013, sales of the game have approached 350,000 copies sold and counting. Square Enix Origin has more on the game and the turn based combat trailer.
Bravely Default: Where The Fairy Flies Turn Based Combat
Bravely Default is one of the traditional games as they use the turn based combat system that we are accustomed to seeing in the original PlayStation days. The game is a turn based game with random encounters with a battle system focused on the job system. The game uses a unique stocked points system called “BP” which characters use to gain extra turns with each set of characters having their own BP to use. Bravely Default’s job system is similar to that of Final Fantasy V where characters learn abilities from using jobs. Job commands generally can be set with abilities learned from other jobs, allowing varieties of characters with multiple skills. Support abilities can be customized as well, but there is a set “cost” as to how many support abilities can be placed on one character.
The characters are designed in polygonal 3D but the graphics in general are outstanding for such a game. Bravely Default is indeed unique and has hours of gameplay for players to try and switch between 23 different jobs. Currently, Bravely Default is set for a 2014 release in North America for the Nintendo 3DS. Below we have provided a combat and graphical trailer for you to view and enjoy.
