Product Details:

Square Enix's highly-acclaimed fantasy RPG brings deep, strategic combat to the Nintendo 3DS system in an ambitious game that bolsters its turn-based combat with a compelling new risk/reward system RPG fans will obsess over. Explore Luxendarc as Tiz and other memorable characters on a visually stunning quest to restore balance to the world.

Only the BRAVE will triumph

Dark times have befallen the land of Luxendarc, and its fate is in the hands of Tiz Arrior and his three comrades. Mold them into heroes as you take a fantastic journey in Square Enix's highly acclaimed RPG for the Nintendo 3DS system.


Agnès Oblige

Agnès watches over the Wind Crystal, one of the four crystals worshiped by the faithful of Crystal Orthodoxy. When a dark power overruns her temple and the world, she sets off on a quest to awaken the crystals.

Tiz Arrior

The sole survivor of Norende, Tiz Arrior is haunted by his failure to save his brother. He won't rest until he has restored his village.

Edea Lee

Initially dispatched by her father - the Grand Marshal of the Eternian Forces - to capture Agnès, Edea eventually joins Tiz's party in their quest to seek the truth and restore balance to the world.


Confident and charming, the rakish Ringabel remembers nothing of his past. The future is another story - this maidens' man possesses a mysterious journal that tells him his destinations and the people he will meet.


This Cryst-Fairy accompanies Agnès on her journey and provides valuable information about Luxendarc and the ways of the world.


DARE to risk everything in battle

Calculated risk and reward are central to the battles in Bravely Default. As you wander the landscape of Luxendarc, enemies will take the fight to you when you least expect it - so you need to be ready with a well-balanced team and sound strategies.

Breaking Down the Battle

Bravely Default offers turn-based battles with a twist. You'll find a wealth of traditional moves and abilities at your disposal, and also innovative game play mechanics - like the Brave, Default, and Bravely Second commands - that enhance battles in new ways.

Brave & Default

Success in combat demands that you wisely manage your Brave Points (BP). When you enter a battle, you can elect to Default - which partially shields you from attacks and builds up BP - or to Brave - which spends BP to unleash multiple attacks at once. If you unleash your Brave attacks at the right time, you can defeat tough enemies quickly, preserve the health of your party members and gain bonus points towards jobs and experience.

Bravely Second

In addition to Brave Points, your characters can use Sleep Points (SP) to freeze time for your enemies during battle with the Bravely Second command. It's a powerful tool, but you should use it sparingly - you need to put your Nintendo 3DS or 2DS system in Sleep Mode to slowly build up your SP.

Special Moves

Each weapon has special moves that you can make your own with customized names. You can also create a battle cry for when you unleash the move in combat. Assign your move to your profile, and then exchange it with other Bravely Default players via the StreetPass feature.
