Bravely Default's western release has edited outfits

Bravely Default's western release has edited outfits photo



The above image comes from a forum post at IGN. It compares the original Japanese (right) and European character outfits (left) from Bravely Default and shows that there have been some changes to them. The clothing is less skimpy, which works out from a western view as these characters are young.

Well, they used to be. NintendoLife says that the ages have been changed, too. For example, Edea is 15 in Japan, and 18 in Europe. 

I don't think this is that big of a deal. Now that you've played the demo, you know you want it, and you know that these changes do not impact the game negatively. You also know Japan is weird about the young kid stuff and that we're not as weird as them, so these changes make sense.

Plus, there's still the Bravo Bikini (Jump to 16:00 in this video for a spoiler.)

Personally, I wouldn't have changed a thing. I wouldn't have bothered. But, if someone asked me to, I wouldn't have minded. That's probably where Square Enix was coming from. Again, not a big deal. To me.

But what about you?

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

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
