I don't want to hear any lip, rest of the world. North America may be the last to receive Bravely Default, but we're going to make it count! Okay, well, technically we won't get Bravely Default until February 7, but don't let you get that down. We have good news, Bravely Default's demo is available today via the Nintendo 3DS eShop. We've waited this long, we can wait a month longer for the full game.
As for the demo, if you're interested in Bravely Default then don't pass up downloading it. The demo features a story and content that is completely unique to itself -- you won't find it in the full game. Thus, the demo is less a demo than it is a prequel chapter or side-story. It's a way to check out Bravely Default without spoiling yourself on any of the RPG itself. Hooray! Free JRPG content, everyone!
Seriously, I can't even say how excited I am to pick up Bravely Default. I don't even have very high expectations of the game. It's more that I want to support classically-minded JRPGs of any kind. Not the big triple-A games that are only growing worse, but the small-to-mid-scale JRPGs. The Final Fantasy titles of the future. I hope it's a good game, too.
Bravely Default launches exclusively on the 3DS starting February 7 in North America, but it's already available in Europe and Australia. Pick up the free demo on the Nintendo 3DS eShop today.
