Nintendo brings the classic throwback to the West in 2014.
Though we covered news of Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, the critically acclaimed spiritual successor to Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, being localized for Western audiences, an official announcement of the game for North America and Europe was pending.
Lo and behold, Nintendo has announced that it will be publishing the game to North American and European gamers in 2014 for the Nintendo 3DS.
Flying Fairy is a throwback to the classic style of Final Fantasy RPGs but with a bit of a twist: You can assume different jobs in the game, which are tied to crystals. Each crystal unlocks new jobs including Black Mage, White Mage, Knight and much more to be discovered over the game. Heck, even enemies have jobs.
With multiple sub-scenarios, characters and endings, Bravely Default: Flying Fairy should make an excellent addition to the 3DS library in the West. Stay tuned for more details on an upcoming release date.
