Bravely Default's writer explains the game's goofy name

Bravely Default: Flying Fairy is that upcoming Square Enix 3DS RPG that makes Dale North wet himself twice a night. I must admit to being slightly intrigued by the game, but not as much as by the game's "what the hell were they thinking" title. I mean, "Bravely Default"? The f*ck does that even mean?

Famitsu magazine recently posted an interview with the game's scenario writer, Naotaka Hayashi. The original article is in Japanese, but over on NeoGAF, you can find a few key points transcribed for our benefit. One thing that Hayashi clarified was the meaning of the title, which refers to "bravely taking the step towards turning your back on your promises and responsibilities."

Oh yeah. That totally clears up any confusion. Naturally, Hayashi doesn't explain the "Flying Fairy" subtitle. Go figure.
