Square Enix's Next 3DS RPG Draws From Final Fantasy V

The ridiculously titled Bravely Default: Flying Fairy will use a job system similar to Final Fantasy V, according to a report by Dengeki Online (as translated by Andriasang).

You'll get to use two types of abilities: Job Commands — active skills you can borrow from either your current job or one you've used before — and Support Abilities, which are passive skills like +10% HP or Cover. Those skills will be limited based on a "cost" system that sounds a lot like Final Fantasy IX.

Bravely Default will also have party skits not unlike the Tales games.

There's no word on a U.S. release for this 3DS role-playing game just yet, but it'll be out in Japan this October. Square Enix will likely give us localisation news closer to then.

    I hope this makes it outside of Japan. It looks great and I want to get excited for it!

    I really want this game too. Hopefully the success of Kingdom Hearts 3D will help this title make its way over to the west. All regions.
