Default Bravely Default: Flying Fairy |OT| IT'S HAPPENING (lol)



---------------------
INTRODUCTION
---------------------
Bravely Default: Flying Fairy is an classic style RPG by the people at Square Enix. It was first revealed at the Nintendo 3DS Conference 2011. The game is being produced by Tomoya Asano and has characters by Akihiko Yoshida. Naotaka Hayashi is handling the game's scenario.

---------------------
THE STORY SO FAR...
---------------------
The story so far involves Anies tasking Tis with saving the world from some evil force. In order to save the world, Tis must travel to a far off land and become a warrior of light in the process. That's all we know about the story so far.

---------------------
GAMEPLAY
---------------------
The gameplay is based on the classic system of random encounters that lead to turn based battles. The game is said to have a mix of jobs and abilities that is close to Final Fantasy V in image.

---------------------
CHARACTERS
---------------------


Tis Oria
The main character of Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, Tis Oria is a 16 year old boy who survived a catastrophic event that left a giant hole in the continent. Tis decides to help Anies stop the coming darkness.


Anies
Anies is a 17 year old girl that tasks Tis with saving the world. According to the AR demo, her world's borders are collapsing because of some sort of evil force. She mentions that they were foolish to fall for such an obvious trap. NOTE: Name confirmed as Anies.


Main Character Number 3
This character was revealed during Tokyo Game Show 2011. Not much else is known about him or her.


Main Character Number 4
This character was revealed during Tokyo Game Show 2011. Not much else is know about him or her.


Other Characters
These are some other characters in Bravely Default: Flying Fairy. Its unknown at this moment if these characters are relevant to the story, but I thought I'd put them here anyways.

Bravely Default itself is on par with Undiscovery.
The subtitle just sends it skyrocketing to a whole new level.

This game sure was a surprise, it really got me excited when it showed up. The artwork is simply amazing, I'm looking forward to seeing how this comes along. As for the name, I don't mind it, it's unique. It's just nice to see a new IP.

Although I've been studying in the US for nearly four years, I'm from France originally and when I was a kid I wrote a science-fiction story and I wanted one of those cool English titles for it - despite the fact that I had no English knowledge whatsoever - so I named my story Starquwave. Bravely Default: Flying Fairy brings back those childhood memories.

I can see why the rumors pegged this as The 4 Heroes of Light 2. But I prefer this name by a long shot. Will keep an eye on it.

This was the only new game I was excited to see during the conference. I'm not a Monster Hunter fan, so that meant nothing to me. Love me some classic jRPGs. Can't wait to hear more news about it!

WOW... Looks like Golden Sun + Suikoden Tierkries combined! I hope they release an English version of the game. Japanese devs shouldn't keep this game to themselves.

I'm definitely looking forward to this and I'm not displeased with the title 'Bravely Default: Flying Fairy' as it is very unique and diverse from most video game titles.

However, last night in all my excitement and fascination with the beauty of it's aesthetics and presentation I mistook it to be Beauty Default: Flying Fairy and I posted it as such to youtube and I had to go back and adjust the title after realizing my mistake. Plus, the princess or what ever she might be at the beginning of the trailer really had me thinking this game was called 'Beauty Defaut'. At first I thought this was a sequel to Four Heroes of Light but I'm guessing it isn't?

I loved the music and I hope that Square Enix will post the music from the game, most especially the musical score from the trailer in iTunes because I'm definitely wanting to download it.

The Japan eShop has 28 3D trailers to download, but Bravely Defualt is the only one that has a free preview on the game, tho requires the AR card they are giving out at TGS or can also get from their website starting Sept. 22nd

Though they held it up in a trailer when they were teasing at it, so I print screened it and still worked ww

Starts out with looking at a city and zooms in, the main character comes down some stairs and then starts talking to you, saying he's looking for an "AR marker," it will go into camera mode and one you put it on a girl will come out and start talking and the world around her starts to crash
Can also take pictures, so I'll throw some MPOs up later

Preview of the girl during AR, same girl that is lying down


Thinking of doing a vid of it and translating what she says, but the girl in it runs around alot the video would be all over the place trying to track her

I admit it is a strange name, but it looks beautiful. It kind of reminds me of Four Heros of Light, but darker. It looks better in my opinion. I will definatly need to watch this game. If I can remember the weird name.

It's a Square Enix game, meaning that from the makers of Kingdom Hearts & Final Fantasy. So I'm definitely gonna get this when it comes out in the US.

@SacredHymn I doubt it, I don't see them putting up these trailers anytime soon outside of Japan. I can see Mario and such getting a trailer thrown up for download, but things that aren't confirmed for outside of Japan or still being worked on, at the time being I don't suspect them to release those through the eShop
---
I took a vid of the AR, but have it zoomed out so your kinda watching from top view, but have tons of MPOs I will up shortly of , and those are close ups. It only needs to see the AR card once so not like others where u can walk closer or change angles to get a better view, kinda stuck with that you have. Anyways too close to her would make the camera shake so much with her sudden movements as I try to follow her stammering around, but going to try one more time

Also I did use the printscreen from the trailer for the card, but its the same character thats on the bottom screen during the demo, so snapped a photo of that, pen tooled around it to make it card like and works just fine thru my ipod

For those who have the game and don't want to wait till the 22nd can use this

Have to say, the name Bravely Default is sort of growing on me.

Also, I doubt the American and Europeon eShops will have any videos about this game or any of the other titles detailed in the japanese conferance....since technically we're probably not supposed to know about it. (although how they can use that excuse in this day and age is bizarre)

Eh, Square (minus Enix) is still on my "crap" list for now. They make me feel very weary. =/ They are the masters of taking a crappy game and making an epic looking trailer for it. (Yeah, I'm still bitter about FFXIII and FFXIV.)

Dang, I thought the game's name was Bravery Default which sounds much better to me than Bravely Default.

Knowing how Square loves their FMVs (and I love them too), I hope War of the Lions's cutscenes make a return. I think they'd complement the story book graphics well.

That was an excellent trailer. It seems to me that Square Enix is providing us some sort of correlation between Bravely Default and The Four Heroes of Light as the Fairy mentions 'Warrior of Light' in her plea for aid.

Seriously, I am more excited for this game than anything else!

It would be nice if this Bravely Default got a short tie-in manga series as it looks like the sort of game that SHOULD expand itself into other mediums like an animation short, manga, clothing, trading cards and key-rings with figurines.

It's sort of duh on that one. We've been getting a nice bit of service from Square Enix in the West up to this point. Why would that cease now? Even Publix grocery stores are selling Square Enix promotional magazines.

This game looks pretty good, and I might end up getting it just because it's a SE game.

Out of all the third party software shown at the Nintendo 3DS TGS 2011 Pre-Show this is the only one that I want to buy. All of the other third party offerings weren't palatable to my taste. So I'm eagerly awaiting an announcement from Square Enix as to when Bravely Default will cross over to Western shores.

I'm quite sure that the when game come comes to America and the UK there will be a name change as I'm sure they know people on the Western side of things won't find Bravely Default appealing. Who wants to Bravely Default on their mortgage?

I'd wager a guess that they meant "Bravely Defiant" but got lost in Engrish at some point.

I was looking through the screenshots from today and I think I found the two other main characters.

I've circled them in red:


The reason I think they might be main characters is because they pop up again in this picture:


And since its been revealed that the hero has to travel to a far off land, I just figured that those two being on his ship meant they were going with him and that they were main characters. So, what do you guys think? Also, is that one with the red bandanna a rat human hybrid? Looks like that to me.

At the very least, they help the hero get to the place across the ocean. They definitely look like sailors. As for the red bandanna guy, it's too hard to tell. I think he's just a human with a weird head.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Anywho, I updated the OP with a new image and also put some new screenshots in the Flickr set for you guys. Please check them out.

First Chaos Rings for iPhone, now this! Both of these games are seemingly modeled after Square's PSOne RPG's. Interesting.

Thank you, sajjad. I've added that video to the OP. Also, I like how that says "New Background music" when that's been the regular music all along.

I got called a troll for saying the graphics don't look "very pretty" (as David put it). Can someone explain why? Prerendered backgrounds are like.... 1995 technology. If Resident Evil 1 had better looking character models and anime characters, it'd be called Bravely Default: Flying Fairy.

I really wish 3rd parties would start actually putting effort into 3DS games...

i agree it doesn't look great, i think where the true beauty (hopefully) comes out will be in the amount of locations and their detail as well as the amount of side quests etc. we'll be able to do. any word yet on how long this adventure is going to last?

I think this is the first none Nintendo game that is a must get for me. I'm only sad that you probably won't be able to set yourself as a female protagonist.

On Feb. 29th they are going to put up a demo for the game on the Japan eShop, actual demo, can control the character and experience a little of the game. A new AR movie will be included in the same demo. They are planning to upload more demos following this one.

We'll see if the final game looks that good. (I suspect it won't)

Nonetheless, I love the look of the game and really hope we get localization news soon!

WARNING: Handheld footage
This is a very quickly done video, I was holding the 3DS in one hand and camera in the other, as a result a lot of shaking / fail framing going on.

I did not even attempt to stabilize this.

But at least you now know what the Demo entails.

Nice video. It would be funny if someone were to play that AR demo in a more public environment (and film it, of course).

TIME TO RAISE YOU BACK FROM THE DEAD!

70 minutes of gameplay from the 4th demo Japan's gotten of the game:



Collector's Edition, with small look at the game's box art:



Still no localization news. When it is announced though, I hope they give it a cooler name, like Bravely Default: Final Fantasy or something.

edit: Release date's October 11 in Japan, by the way.

This game looks pretty good. Definitely a game I can see myself getting if it ever gets localized. Even though I haven't played 4 heroes of light.

If Bravely Default: Flying Fairy gets localised, the only thing that would stop me from buying it -- is if the enemy encounter rate remains very high as shown in that 70 minutes gameplay Youtube video.

This is the sort of game where I'm buying it, but not digitally. I also imagine I probably won't finish it. XD But maybe I will, sooooo...

I'll definitely get a physical copy as well. Perhaps the limited edition one if I can afford it. That bundle looks lovely.

And look at those art styles! This game has the potential to dethrone both Legend of Mana and Okami in my "Best Looking Game Evar!" list.

Bump Thread.

There has been some new news lately from Andriasang, this and this.

And I've just realized that this particular game has a rather high rating. It is rated C by CERO (17+). I guess the story will be pretty dark...which is a very good thing in my book.

I closed this thread for a reason, Kinvy. Make a discussion thread for now. I'll reopen it when there are enough localized details to make a full OT.

Well you know, it's a damn crying shame we don't have a thread for this game, and there's a few avid people on the chatbox playing this, but simply put they're all too lazy to make a thread for it (Including myself)!

So please, discuss! Mark spoilers though.

Friend code sharing for Abilink! Will be updated.

Joba: 5284-1421-2815



Personally I'm only at Chapter 2 right now, only because upgrading Norende is taking up all my time xD It's just too addicting. After a few easier RPGs like Chrono Trigger, this one feels fresh to me because it's so hard o.o Even randomly encountered common enemies can take you out if you're not careful. Which is great because the battles never get repetitive that way.

Post your friend codes, I need 2 more to have Abilinked everyone.

Classic Final Fantasy has been missing in my life for so long. I played Final Fantasy 4 again recently but it's less fun to keep going over the same old scenarios. I'm enjoying this game immensely.

I'm rather surprised by how dark some of the themes are and pleasantly by how the narrative takes them in its stride without a cacophony of unbearable melodrama. When fighting the asterisk bearers, it wasn't until reaching the Knight-bearer that I realized
Spoiler!


At the end of Chapter 4 now, and I hope to get the game finished this week.

Actually yeah it's pretty cool what you said in spoilers. o.o I never thought about it that far. Usually doesn't happen in RPGs I've played. Especially not Nintendo ones.

Chapter 2 spoilers:
Spoiler!


I love how there's sooo many boss fights in this, each of the asterisk bearers and main quest ones. And luckily it doesn't always follow the old dungeon->boss->dungeon->boss formula, sometimes there's just boss fights one after another. :]

I'm at the end of the game now, though I have some final tuning to do to my team before I tackle the final boss.

After seeing how all the characters in this game fail to communicate with each other, and how it is this lack of basic communication that drives the plot, I can't help but feel my take away from this game will be "Every character in Bravely Default is a moron."

The game has been super fun, but damn... they're all so dumb.

Yeah it was one of the features they've advertised the most. The 3 difficulty levels, on top of that you can freely adjust the random enemy encounter rate and if something is too difficult for you, your last chance is to summon a really OP friend with Abilink, or use SP to freeze time. (Last 2 would count as cheating in my book :P)

Considering it's a function implemented in game, I don't see how it is cheating.
Those 2 options will save your ass numerous times when u play in hard mode. It makes streetpass and sleep mode quite useful. Although I rarely use both modes, when I'm on the edge, I have no qualms in using it. XD

It's definitely a bit cheaty. Some summons can take out a form of the final boss by themselves, that's how powerful they can get.

I was going to buy this title at launch, but got a few books instead. Probably buying the game next month though.

I'm so excited for Bravely Default. When I first saw it while watching the 2011 3DS Conference, I knew I was going to get it. If European impressions are to be taken into account, it looks like Square Enix really created something special with Bravely Default.

It looks like the game is censored in the EU and may well be in North America too.

Is anyone playing the NA demo for this?

Downloaded when it first came out-- it's surprisingly tricky.
Got smashed the first two times, and spent forever eventually defeating the first boss...

Got smashed the first two times, and spent forever eventually defeating the first boss...
Here's some advice:
First if you haven't changed your job change them. The default job isn't meant for damage.
Next learn to balance bp. It's always important to save up bp and then unleash it. Default more against monsters you don't know to figure out their patterns and then use all your bp when they can't attack.

Hope that helped

Not really censored as just adapting it to Western tastes (over here we're not really into underage girls who look like toddlers wearing lingerie ).

Anyway, most people are ok with the "censorship" in this particular case. Nothing was lost. The game is still grade A material.

Love the demo and will definitely be buying the full game. I'm not sure when, though, as I've got a large backlog of RPGs (and a large list of RPGs to buy in the future).

I can't say that I find the demo particularly difficult. I've beaten all but the last boss, and have not had a game over. There's only been three or four instances where I've even had a character die. Sure, there have been a couple fights that I had to draw out for five minutes or run from, but nothing unmanageable. Maybe a lot of people are playing on Hard as opposed to Normal?

Consider that demos are usually made accessible to most type of people. This in order to get as many people on board and not be intimidated by it.

The Zombi U demo for Wii U was also watered down in terms of it making it easier than the actual game.

This is true, but I've actually been seeing people on GameFAQs saying that the demo is difficult, and that it actually starts you off in a slightly later area in the game than you would be with the level and equipment you start off with. Though I suppose looking on their board now, I don't see much of it anymore.

I found it to be fairly difficult at first. I didn't know where to level up when i first started. Everything is pretty intimidating and takes tons of hits. Though after you struggle through the first few fights and learn how to properly make use of the battle system, it gets much easier. The boss fights aren't exactly super difficult either. Easiest thing to do is just default for 3 turns and then wreck the boss, then default some again.

Also, and I'm not sure what the demo includes, but each weapon has its own means of activating its special. For the sword, you need to Bravely X amount of times. For the katana, you need to Default X amount of times. For the staff, you need to heal X amount of time. For the wand, you need to use magic X amount of time. Etc, etc. Make sure you learn how to activate each of your weapons' special abilities and use them frequently. Your specials are heavy hitting or heavy healing.

I recommend wisely setting up each character during battles (Especially boss ones) to most quickly activate their specials, so you can unleash and chain them. This makes boss fights so much easier.

Hope that helps!

I've been trying the demo for the last 20-ish minutes, but all the enemies seem impossibly difficult, even after trying to change their jobs and whatnot. I'll probably try it again later, 'cause I really wanted to like this game.

Still looking forward to the NA release.

I just finished the demo and leveled all jobs to max.
The only thing I'm worried about is that the full game will be too easy, that you can just level and easily smash everything.

Τhe same can be said about every RPG with random encounters or respawning enemies. You just have to grind with moderation.

I've only played a little bit of the demo myself, I'm not sure if I'd like to play this.

I'm 45 hours into the full game and I haven't had to grind at all. Although I predict that I will have to sometime in the near future, because it seems I'm at a point where bosses don't give exp anymore.

Just simply don't do any grinding, or if you want to grind for money, turn off exp gain. :P It's quite challenging, I guarantee that you can't do a good number of the bosses without dying.


--


By the way, anyone playing the demo, don't be thrown off by the quests in the demo all being the traditional fetch-quests with no story. Because there's not a single fetch-quest in the full game. Kind of a weird choice to put those into the demo because everyone hates them.

Bravely Default is awesome but as you know you need friends to help you rebuild the town which enables better armor and weapons. Feel free to ADD me and summon me in battles when the actual game comes out. I'm still on the Demo til the real game get's released. Email me your friend code no spaces emanyyyyy @ Hotmail . com

Played the demo and wasn't terribly interested. Does the game actually get more interesting? Because even the beginning dialogue in the demo bored me to death.

The demo has no story, it's just fetch quests. Full game doesn't have any.

Have a lot on my plate right now (Link's Awakening DX, Tomb Raider (2013), Mario and Luigi Dream Team, Assassin's Creed IV, and Earthbound) but I really can't wait for this game. It comes out a day before my birthday.

I might not get it on day one, but for sure, my next game purchase.

Hold on a minute... Is this really the European cover art?

Or is it the older version of the game?

So much better than the EU art. It's simple, yet speaks a lot. Instead of the other one that seems to clutter up without any significance....
And before u ask, there is a significance to the art u see on the black boxart, which u will know once u play the game.

I do like the art style of the EU cover. But yeah there isnt much going on aside from people standing in a field. I do like the black cover a little better. It has a nice composition that is as said fairly simple.

Eh, honestly I think I like the EU cover more. :/ I don't really see anything that special about the JP one, and if there is any "hidden significance" I wouldn't know it until I actually played the game.

That said, I think they're both pretty good. Not the best, but good.

I agree, the black cover is a million times better.. The EU one just shows the characters of the game... Why Nintendo of Europe? Why?

It's because the EU cover art is the same cover art used on the Japanese version of For The Sequel, whereas the US version uses the cover art of the original JP only title.

Does anyone know if we have an official FC exchange thread for this game? I'd like to add players for the summoning and ablink combat advantages. Please let me know or PM if you add me and plan to buy the game

Both of the box art look great.
The game kind of reminds me of Chrono Trigger in a few ways (which is good!).
Very addicting game.
I'm just sad about the Bravo treatment in the PAL/NA version

I believe we are already 3DS friends, so we're good to go.

So Bravely Default also got released in our country as the same date in NA. I haven't ordered one yet from my local game shop beacause:
1. I want to buy the Collector's edition but strangely the retail price was really high. Except for being 59.99 it got to approximately 75.48 (from PHP to USD). Its really considering they used to sold limited edition at almost the same price from 55.99 to like 56 - 57 USD.
Well i still wantes the CE but suddenly
2. CE of Bravely Default has only the artbooks and CDS AR cards but no Agnes figure. ( EU versions have them I was quite excited and thought it will be released also for the NA)

Also in the EU CE, the artbook is a hardcover and in NA it's soft, so that's a bummer. But the euro-peen version goes for crazy money right now so it's not worth it.

Ack! I want this game but I never bothered to pre-order the Collector's Edition and now I can't find one. Does anybody know if Nintendo will be restocking the CE with retailers or Amazon?

How hard is this game?
I suck at JRPGs and don't play them a lot but this one seems interesting.

I'm so bad at RPGs I'm stuck on Elesa's gym on Pokemon White.

ive never played a jrpg and ive managed to get to chapter one pretty easily, but im guessing its going to get harder in further chapters, i just havent got any further cause im trying to play pokemon at the same time
you can also choose difficulty at the beginning, change encounter rates, and summon friends in case you get really stuck
also get yourself a ground type, like diglett or cubone or something, ground take no damage to electric and at the same time ground types do double damage to electric

I'm going to get this game, but I haven't finished the demo. I know there ar bonuses if you've played through the demo. My question is, should I finish the demo before getting into the full retail version?

I've been playing this game nonstop since I bought it last week. I love it. My village population couldn't grow any slower though.

I thought the streetpass you get going to McDonalds would help me grow the population real fast but it seems to only accept genuine Streetpasses. You also have to be ready to accept the person while that person is still in your vincinty which sucks. At least you get 3 per day as long as you update daily!

So im trying to decide what to run my final team as.

Edea: Ninja/Spell Fencer w/ Katana for crits
Ringabel: Pirate/Ranger
Tiz: Blackmage/Timemage
Agnes: Whitemage/Performer

Atm it works pretty well. But this team is kind of glass cannon like. Though for some reason my white mage is a huge tank.

Also i think my population is about 67 or something. But it doesnt really matter since i finished my town a few days ago.

Uhh it can only be done once a day? Maybe wait until the next day. If thats not it, perhaps you need to set up some things in the settings. idk. Maybe send out a summon.

To me it's actually pretty hard on medium difficulty. Had a lot of trouble with Ominas, and the Wind Temple. Not sure what the problem is, if I've got the wrong jobs for my characters, not leveling up enough, or if I'm just bad. But switching it to easy made it a breeze.

I'm glad this is one of the longer rpgs. I don't want it to end obviously. So much fun. I finally got the ninja asterisk which is my favorite. Summons are great too and are similar to the FF summons. Hopefully they become legendary like Ifrit or Bahamut and become an ongoing thing.

I can't tell you more because it's some big spoilers.

Everything AFTER that is ridiculously hard for me.
My team is around Level 55 now

I'm also at the part after awakening all the crystals and things are indeed ridiculously harder. I had to take a break, honestly. I didn't know if i had the energy to start super grinding. But I do that with every rpg i play where you get to a certain point in the story that just all of a sudden gets way harder than usual.

And something about the story

This game reached #10 in NA on the sales charts for February.

Very impressive for a new JRPG franchise in the west.

Hopefully, this will encourage more localizations.

Beat out LR too!

While the last 1/4 of the game may have been unsatisfying to me, the game was good overall, and I look forward to bravely second ^_^

So I finally bought this game yesterday. I am only lvl 8 or 9 Can't remember. I am about to fight the the 3rd boss, Knight i think.
4 hours in this game and maaan i must say that this game give me some serious problems sometimes. The 2nd boss the black mage was ridiculously strong for my party I had to switch the difficulty to easy from medium. The Fire AoE and the Poison was just too much.
Also not to mention those trash mobs in that dungeon with the spears hit me for like 120 - 140 damage while my characters did 10 - 20 I cant imagine how hard it must be to play on the hardest difficulty. Is this for real ?
The funny part is, that i play RPG most of the times and its my favorite genre. I cant remember an RPG game where I had problems with the difficulty so early in the game except Demon's Souls/Dark Souls 1,2 but that is a different story.

Anyone ?

It's hard to judge difficulty in games like this since gameplay is stats based and not skill based.

You could just be under levelled, so you'll need to grind a bit, but then you run the risk of making it too easy for yourself.

Kinda hard to get the balance right.

I bumped the difficulty down to easy myself as well.

Make sure you're equipping the right weapons based on what job your character has. EX: A black mage uses rods with magic. A monk uses staves/knuckles with physical attacks.

Almost 15 hours in the game at the end of chapter 2 and I must say that I absolutely love it so far. Edea is the best character for me, I just love her attitude and voice :-) She is so cool. I hope she will not die because i throw my 3DS out of the window !


p.s. : FASHIONAAAAAABLUH !!!!

Even though all 4 characters are supposed to be 'mains' I think Edea and Ringabel should've been the main focus. Tiz and Anges were such boring characters (aside from the fact that Anges is obsessed with saying 'UNACCEPTABLE' heh).

But anyway, I finally beat the game at 80 hours. The final boss wasn't as hard as I would have thought. Maybe I was overleveled at level 85? I have a hypothesis though, about the ending. (btw that secret video was awesome)

Spoiler!


Added after 21 minutes:

I also completely agree with you about Tiz and Agnes. Tiz in particular because it felt like he didn't need to be there at all. Entirely superfluous to his own game. Everyone else has their own little story arcs going on, but once you leave Caldisla, Tiz is done. The one thing that makes Tiz special is almost completely ignored, and even when it is touched on it is intentionally vague.

The good news is it looks like this will be a focal part of Bravely Second.

Ike one thing I can tell you is to update your game every day so that you get extra friend summons. Depending on what you get from your friends or random people, they can be a big help if you feel under levelled. Otherwise, this game is pretty much a standard jrpg. Idk if you've played any rpgs before this game

I also hate that UNCACCEPTABLE thing.
As for me, I have turned off random encounters three times during my gameplay ( 18 hours so far ) because the monsters were weak and Its boring to fight them for 100 xp and 7jp.
I also have mana issues with Ringabel ( black mage ) when I enter a dungeon, at the point where i finally reach the boss I am out of mana. Little Ethers costs 1000 $ which is ridiculous for 40 mana recharge.

Yeah Ringabel has issues with MP consumption. very late in the game I got a way to keep his MP from draining so much.

Yeah I've played tons of RPGs and this reminds me a lot of FF Tactics in a good way. What I'd like from people is help with building Norende to get the items and such. Any takers?

How BRAVE are you being? I'm in that dungeon and those pig things hit pretty hard but so does Monk Tiz. I -4 Brave with him and they go down fast, usually before they can even attack.

Got to the adventurer
Select save to go to the save menu.
Select update data.

You should get about 3 friends from the internet to add to your town. You can do this every day.

Also, it appears that you can only get new villagers every 24 hours, meaning that if you wait to update until 8:00pm, you'll only be able to update after 8:00pm the next day.

Holy crap. After a long hiatus, I managed to slug through Chapter 5. I'm on Chapter 6 now. Who else has actually bothered to try for the perfect ending?

I did it.

I got the true ending. It took over 100 hours of playtime but I did it.

What a waste of time accomplishment.

I still need to get a hold of this game. I've been wanting to play it since the 2011 3DS event from Japan. Before the localization was announced, I initially planned on importing a Japanese 3DS, but it was too expensive.

It's such a shame the way the last few chapters of this game turned out. On the bright side I loved the battle system and being able to control random battle rates.

It really is.

If the battle system wasn't as enjoyable as it was, I would have given up on it. I liked the characters so I was genuinely motivated to see how it all ended.

I hit a wall after reaching the third crystal and just a few days ago dipped my toes back in. A few months off did me good. I'm plucking away an hour or two a night while Netflix-ing.

I still need to pick this up, admittedly. I chose not to go to Halloween Horror Nights for my birthday this year and my dad decided to just give me the money he would've spent on the ticket instead, so I'll use that to finally pick this up. Looking forward to it!
