Bravely Default is a JRPG created by Square Enix and released for the 3DS. Players navigate the world of Luxendarc with four characters and the game employs turn-based combat. The main character is Agnès Oblige, who allies with Tiz Arrior, Ringabel and Edea Lee.

The game was released in Japan on October 11th, 2012. While a localization was not initially planned, Asano told fans to continue to clamor for it until their wishes were met. A localization was released in Europe on December 3rd 2013 and in North America on February 7th, 2014. The game's positive reception led to the creation of a sequel, Bravely Second: End Layer.

A favorite game posted, wasted in a terribly short article. Just like Kingdom Hearts. Bad kokoroanime! That's a bad bad kokoroanime! You should always read the submission guide first. I really hope Mona_JPN steps in to fix it. Or maybe I can fix it.

Now go read this guide and sit in the corner for a time out, kokoroanime.
