While North American gamers have to wait until February 2014 to check out the game, Nintendo have taken it upon themselves to publish Square Enix / Silicon Studio’s JRPG Bravely Default in PAL regions including Europe, Australia and New Zealand in only a couple of days time.
With the launch drawing closer, the publisher has released a new trailer for the game which highlights some of the features they want to draw your attention to, including environment designs and the combat / class systems which may be very familiar to gamers of the Final Fantasy series.
While it may be very difficult to come across, Nintendo are offering a special Collector’s Edition of the game which comes in at around $150 AUD. I intend on doing an unboxing video of it shortly after its Australian launch on the 7th December 2013.
Nintendo have also launched a demo on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. This demo not only contains quests that are unique to this demo and not in the final game, but also allows you to experience StreetPass in the Norende rebuilding mode and offers 7 unlockable play bonuses, which include special items such as Antidotes and Echo Herbs to help you on your quest. Your progress in Norende as well as the collected play bonuses can be transferred to the final game, giving you an advantage when you start the full adventure.
