Bravely Default | City

The Bravely series could see future releases on multiple platforms.

Bravely Default launched successfully in North America last month, and developer Silicon Studio is currently developing the sequel, Bravely Second. Silicon Studio president Takehiko Terada recently spoke with CVG about where the Bravely series will go from here.

“We may expand [to other platforms] in the future,” Terada says, “but we don’t have a clear plan yet. We’re talking about that, maybe using other devices, but we don’t have a clear plan.”

Terada says this may not be an easy process, as the visual style of the game was tailor-made to take advantage of the stereoscopic 3D screen on the Nintendo 3DS. “The scene is in 3D, but it’s not just regular 3D, it’s designed to be best seen in the stereo view. Even just a regular indoor scene is designed to have a feeling of depth.”

While Terada couldn’t divulge too much on whether the Bravely series will come to other platforms, he did have some interesting comments on how it differs from the Final Fantasy series, to which the Bravely series is frequently compared: “It’s not like a Final Fantasy where each game has a totally different story. It’s a sequel so we have some portions of the previous.”

Terada hopes the Bravely series will “continue with numerous titles.” In the future, he and Silicon Studio hope to make “a really realistic game, not like Bravely Default which is really cartoonish, but a more realistic game.”

    “bravely default series may expand to playstation consoles” fixed

  • Keichi Morisato

    i kinda hope they stick the 3DS, as i really liked what they had done with 3D.

    I think Ican heard a thousand of fanboys crying

    Hrmm…does iOS count as other platforms? Because THAT I can see. I’d LOVE it to come to Playstation, and look like psx era final fantasy games, but with a higher resolution. I’ll buy Bravely Default as many times as I can…

  • PS Vita pls. I have to admit this game on it’s own kept me from trading my 3DS in.

  • James Fox

    Wii U version pls

    I think people won’t be so pissed if it stays on 3ds along with other consoles. If he just says, “We are porting it to the ps3 and fuck everyone else” that’s when people will pissed off.

    while I love my 3ds and bravely default, I said from day one that this game and series needs to be on the big screen (wii U) and availably to playstation gamers (vita, ps3, ps4.) it’s too big and too good to hoard for ourselves.

    • RagunaXL

      i think when he says devices he means android and ios though

    No problem with more platforms. The 3D never appealed to me in this game, plus it’s a hassle to play most games in 3D on the 3DS’s tiny screen anyway, so I’d be happy to see this game on other platforms. Vita would be nice, hell port it to Android with mandatory game-pad support. Nvidia’s been getting more games ported to Android recently that require a gamepad to be played, and I want to see even more companies do the same.

  • Tyrannikos

    I’d gladly take more options for this series. Very charming game for the 3DS, but I won’t turn down graphical/performance upgrades.

    “We may expand [to other platforms] in the future,” Terada says, “but we don’t have a clear plan yet. We’re talking about that, maybe using other devices, but we don’t have a clear plan.” in this quote he doesn’t say [to other platforms] he actually says to other devices. which is what most people say when they are speaking about devices with android and ios operating systems. no one has ever referred to a playstation or Nintendo console or handheld as a device.
