Bravely Default Deluxe Edition Announced

October 23rd, 2013 by Tony Garsow

For European fans anticipating Bravely Default, Square Enix has revealed the Deluxe Edition set that will be available for puchase. In the image below, we can see that this edition comes with a special case, the game itself, an Agnes figurine, artbook, soundtrack, and 34 AR cards.

Bravely Default is developed by Silicon Studio and published by Square Enix and Nintendo. The game is a throwback to the Final Fantasy of yesteryear, featuring a classic job system, turn-based combat, and a story featuring four heroes on a quest to restore the light of the crystals.

The game goes on sale December 6th in Europe, with a 2014 date still pending for North America.

Currently, the Deluxe Edition is only announced for Europe.

    I swear to god Square Enix, this deluxe edition better be coming to North America or there will be blood.

  • TerrorOfZanarkand

    Yay, cant wait for this!

  • Odine

    And here comes the continuation of the FF prostitution.
    A different name for the same product, which means double money for SQEX.

    I hope this game fails, so they don’t get excited about launching multiple copies of the same thing again and again. Looks like Ubisoft’s Assassin’s creed copy, Watch Dogs. The same game, in a future context.
    Half the job, double the money.

    No thanks.

  • The usual deal with a new SE product, for the liking of some. Let the game come.

    @Odine
    “A different name for the same product, which means double money for SQEX” this is blatantly stupid.
    You really can’t fathom how this game being called, say, Final Fantasy: The Battle Fairy would enormously boost its sales?
    You really can’t see that there are many people who -will- grab anything with “Final Fantasy” on it?
    It’s ironic too, since there are some who find it refreshing that SE -isn’t- plastering “Final Fantasy” on everything they release.

    You advocate being severely annoyed by a formula, yet you make one of the worst arguments you could against it.

    By the way, you must love the XIII trilogy if you really stand by that. My condolences.

    @Odine

    All the Bravest was cash cow enough. Minimal effort, crap gameplay resulting, huge profits. Not to mention the Crapilation of FFVII. If SE needs money, they already know how to milk it – fan appeal. Just add DLCs and FFVII to the mix and wait for the money to come in.

    If you think a game is BS, don’t buy it. If you think the gaming industry as a whole is BS, find a more productive hobby. Kinda tired of whiny FF fanatics going on about SE making dumb games they don’t like.

  • AntagonistGB

    @Odine
    I’m a bit confused. Are you upset at the idea of a collector’s edition? This has been going on for decades, and not just in the video game industry. I think it’s kind of dumb, but people dig them, so who cares?

  • Odine

    No, I’m upset about the fact that bravely default and final fantasy are identical franchises, with nearly identical gameplay and lore.

    I suppose SQEX thought, hey. let’s make a FF with another name just to see how well/bad it sales. And now here we have the result.

    That’s why I said it’s half the job, double the money. But of course, it cannot be compared with the lack of job that All the bravest was.

    @Lilay said:
    “You really can’t fathom how this game being called, say, Final Fantasy: The Battle Fairy would enormously boost its sales?”
    You mean like FF:The crystals bearers or FF:My life as a king? In that 2 games wearing FF in the title didn’t caused an important sales impact I think.

    “You really can’t see that there are many people who -will- grab anything with “Final Fantasy” on it?”
    Well that was maybe a decade ago. Nowadays people look very well when buying a FF game. You can read analysis, watch videos, trailers and try demos before the game release, so I think people are more selective this days, and don’t buy everything just because it has a FF logo on the cover.

    “It’s ironic too, since there are some who find it refreshing that SE -isn’t- plastering “Final Fantasy” on everything they release.”
    Yes I do, but when a product is clearly a FF, but you release it with another name, I don’t like it. I’m glad SQEX releasea more products, but if they are products of new IP’s, with new gameplay and gamestyles. Making a game of the same you have always done, and call it different to see how well is said, is learly an speculative movement for part of SQEX, and I won’t jump inside that fire ring.

    Happy Weekend. 😉

    PD:BTW I didn’t liked the FFXIII trilogy, kind of overexploiting the saga imo, but I liked FFXIII alone enormously.

  • Odine

    *how well it sold,” instead of “how well is said”

    Mistake at the end of the last paragraph. :S

  • AntagonistGB

    Except Bravely Default looks like a legitimately good game, and probably benefits tremendously by not having the bloated 100+ person teams that the main series games all have at this point. Chrono Trigger is still considered by many to be the best game Square ever put out, and it honestly was not hindered in any way by not being a Final Fantasy game.

    It’s not “half the job.” From what I’ve heard and seen, and judging by how great 4 Heroes of Light was, this is what Final Fantasy should be. I really don’t get why you’re so upset about this game existing, since it’s not like this is taking resources away from any other game, unlike the FFXIII saga

  • Odine

    “this is what Final Fantasy should be. I really don’t get why you’re so upset about this game existing”

    This is probably what FF should be, as you said. So I’m upset because they don’t call it Final Fantasy, because it is what this game is. If there is a good and a legitimal game to put Final Fantasy on it’s title, is this one.

    I can’t swallow they treat us like guinean pigs, to have data about how well sells a Final Fantasy without the Final fantasy name. I can’t bite that bait. If all of you can, go for it and enjoy this product.
    Thanks.

  • AntagonistGB

    Okay, wow. So, you’re going to intentionally deprive yourself of what you admit looks like a really good game, just because it isn’t called what you want it to be called? Instead of paying for the game to let Square know that there is a market for this kind of game still? Good logic there. I’ve seriously never ever had someone tell me they refuse to play a game they think looks good solely because of the title. That’s slightly ridiculous.

  • John

    I kinda understand Odine’s upset, Bravely Default basically is a (spiritual) sequel to 4 Heroes of Light/FF Gaiden which was a FF game. Though it shared lots of common FF themes, it never felt like FF game for me, not even spin-off. So I’d like to rather call FF Gaiden as first Bravely Default game.

    Anyway, looking forward to this game! I’m happy how Nintendo handless european localizations fast enough. Too bad there is no “regular” Limited Edition with just artbook and soundtrack, I dont care about figurines and oversized boxes.

  • Odine

    @AntagonistGB
    Well, you call that to be slighlty ridiculous. I call it to have principles.
    The rest have been already told.
    Have a nice weekend.

  • @Odine
    Your speech pattern had such a change on your reply to me in comparison to your initial statements that I feel very much inclined to not humour your contentions regarding this game. This was further evident in your exchanges with AntagonistGB.
    Even though you sort of weaselled your answers, I’ll still address you.

    “In that 2 games wearing FF in the title didn’t cause an important sales impact I think.”

    Yes, yes it did.
    In order to imagine this: think of a young company that releases a classic-styled RPG, and, after that, think of the proportion of attention it will get from being just that as a product. Now think about how SE did it, while applying the FF name on it. Is this not obvious?
    Here’s a concrete example: Tactics Ogre; basically a tactical RPG only for the aficionados (in the West). Final Fantasy Tactics; the same thing with “Final Fantasy” on it. By far the most beloved Final Fantasy “spin-off”, considered by many not only as good, but actually better than most of the mainline titles.

    “Nowadays people look very well when buying a FF game. You can read analysis, watch videos, trailers and try demos before the game release, so I think people are more selective this days, and don’t buy everything just because it has a FF logo on the cover.”

    I can quote people from this website alone who bought Final Fantasy titles because of how alluring they felt the logo was. Literally.
    Your assumption that people take care in pre-reviewing a title is not at all wrong, but to think this dismisses the emotional impulse many fans get just because there’s a new game with “Final Fantasy” on it is demonstrably false. These terms aren’t mutually exclusive at all, in fact, you can very well be “emotionally selective” of what you want to play.

    “but when a product is clearly a FF, but you release it with another name, I don’t like it.”

    I can tell now. And this is your only “problem”.
    This isn’t an argument, it’s an opinion that directly stems of how you feel, and, I don’t think you need to cover it up with reasoning at all.

    “I’m glad SQEX releases more products, but if they are products of new IP’s, with new gameplay and gamestyles. Making a game of the same you have always done, and call it different to see how well it sells, is clearly a speculative movement for part of SQEX, and I won’t jump inside that fire ring.”

    There is an inversely proportional tendency to this: some people have literally made that argument upside-down by saying that the upcoming FFXV should not be called Final Fantasy precisely because it’s so different from what has been done until now within the mainline titles, they say that the game would do better without the name. While others defend that “change” is what represents the series.
    But, you’re not in any side of the actual spectrum: you’ve attested that this game is so much like the remakes of some of the older games (III/IV) and related visually titles (The 4 Heroes of Light) that you’re upset it’s not called Final Fantasy to the extent you won’t play it and claim dubious reasons on the company’s side? That is but you’re exotic prerogative, you cannot even attempt to rationalize it.
    There’s nothing here except: “because that’s how I feel”.

    Furthermore, you’re extending that speculation too far in guessing that SE is experimenting with their consumers while attributing it an odd amount of weight and concern. Here you simply enter the realm of the odd, regardless if it is true or not. You blatantly admit to something that is hard not to be passed as ludicrous the more you try to explain it.

    You would do, if I may say, better if you’d simply cut it short and say that you’re overtly annoyed this isn’t called Final Fantasy.

    And, well, good weekend to you too I suppose.
