Bravely Default: Flying Fairy

While to some who are in the know from keeping up with the game on forums, live in the PAL region and purchased the game already, or if you know Nintendo’s history when it comes to localization, this may or may not come to any surprise.

Bravely Default | Costume Comparison

Like Fire Emblem: Awakening, Bravely Default has gotten some alterations when being brought over to the West. Some outfits are less revealing after a few modifications–which you can see above thanks to a few fans from forums that have shared pictures of the three outfits shown. Reports from IGN claim that the characters ages have also been altered from 15 to 18 and even some pieces of dialogue have been changed–specifically ones with sexual innuendos. Whether the changes will be found in the North American release is not known as of yet; everyone’s guessing–including myself–it will most likely be the case.

Still not sold on the game from footage alone, or from its reception from critics and fans alike? Thankfully, North American fans can also get the same demo the PAL region fans were able to enjoy, which is now available for download off the Nintendo eShop. Bravely Default is a Nintendo 3DS exclusive, and has already been released in Europe and will launch in North America on February 7th of this year.

While the Collector’s Edition may be sold out, the standard edition is still available for pre-order at
