New Bravely Default Screenshots

on March 31, 2012 11:58 AM

If you’re curious about the world of Square Enix’s upcoming 3DS title Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, we’ve got your fix right here with a batch of new screenshots and concept art. The screenshots give us a glimpse of the game’s combat system and Japanese menus, but are otherwise unenlightening.

The real bonus here is the concept art of BD:FF’s desert city, Raikurika. Raikurika is a city of wind (hence the windmills all over the place), run by — you guessed it — a magic wind crystal. Anybody who played Final Fantasy V knows the drill; the crystal shuts down, the city shuts down, you have to try to fix it. The game will also include fantasy trope environments like a nation of only women (Gerudos? Amazons?) and a country caught in the grips of a seemingly endless civil war. Check after the break for some images!

Sto Austin is the man. Period. When not saving the world from the next generation of Metal Gears or throwing hadoukens at his detractors, chances are he's writing about someone else doing something similarly epic, possibly whilst smoking a cigar. He enjoys games with a strong emphasis on story, which typically fall into the RPG, Action/Adventure, or Horror genres, though he also has a soft spot for fighting games and has been known, when feeling saucy, to shred on some Guitar Hero or Rock Band. He currently divides his time between Florida and Maine, tromping up and down the East coast according to the whims of fate and fortune.
