Bravely Default's producer Tomoya Asano recently took to Facebook to answer some questions for fans, and some of them have been a tad more enlightening than others. When asked specifically about what inspired him in regards to story, Asano stated, "Basically this is comedic up to the point where you start really liking the characters, and then the drama develops. I used the methodology of American TV dramas like the older Beverly Hills 90210 (I’m a huge fan!), and Glee as references.”

Well I can certainly see that now that I think about it, and it's also easy to see where Bravely Default gets some of its soul from with such a passionate producer. Asano also goes on to clarify, "if you think about it, I guess you could call Bravely Default a traditional Japanese RPG with American content thrown in. I look forward to hearing what all of you in the Americas think of it!”

We all think it's great, Asano.

It looks like Bravely Default sold one million copies

Bravely Default was one of my favorite games of this year (a lot of people don't believe it when I say that, but it came out in 2014 in the US), and I'm glad a sequel is already in the works. It appears as if said sequel will...more

Best Buy is doing buy one, get one for 3DS games this week

Bravely Default outpacing Fire Emblem, says Nintendo

Aw! Don't fight! Two of my favorite 3DS games ever are neck in neck in a sort of early year RPG sales race. Fire Emblem Awakening was a surprise hit last year. This year's Bravely Default follows the same pattern, though Nint...more

You can use the Konami code in Bravely Default

Once you've beaten Bravely Default, a secret movie will unlock that essentially serves as a bridge to the upcoming sequel -- Bravely Second. But apparently you don't need to complete the game to unlock it, as you can use the...more

So how about that topical section in Bravely Default?

Bravely Default is on its way to North America really soon, and it's glorious. As a return to the JRPGs of yore and a modern update, it should simultaneously satisfy pretty much every RPG fan out there. But I noticed in ...more

Review: Bravely Default

I'm not sure when it happened, but we've now fully moved away from the type of Japanese role-playing game we loved for three or four console generations. What happened? Did we change? Did we stop liking this kind of game? May...more

BioWare's multiplayer action-RPG Shadow Realms looks fast and fun

BioWare had my attention with those live-action teasers building up to Shadow Realms, but I've not kept up with the four-versus-one "modern" fantasy role-playing game since it was proper unveiled. If you're in a similar boat...more
