"Multiple sources" confirm at GDC, according to report.

Bravely Default: Flying Fairy is being localized for North America and Europe, “multiple sources” have reportedly told Siliconera at last week’s Game Developers Conference.

Last month, the official Twitter account for the Square Enix 3DS RPG teased a potential localization.

“We hear your voices, foreigners,” it said in the update.

Stay tuned.

    Hoping Square Enix releases a statement tomorrow or sometime soon so we can finally be sure.

  • Bloodios

    I’d prefer to see an enhanced version of the game for the Wii U.

    • MosquitoLemon

      Give it three years and I’m sure you’ll get a million iterations of the game on different systems.

    • Elvick

      Don’t count on that, but I’ll bet you money it’ll come to iOS at some point.

  • Tac-Mex

    Great! I think i will get a 3DS after all.

    I really hope that Square-Enix also localize Type 0 but i guess it won’t happen,

    • dmysta3000

      Unless a Vita, PS3, or PS4 remake is announced any chance of Type-0 coming here is dead in the water unfortunitley.

      • Tac-Mex

        A vita version would be great but i don’t expect anything from SE anymore

      • Tac-Mex

        A vita version would be great but i don’t expect anything from SE anymore

  • new_tradition

    What would be even more amazing is if this ends up coming out in 2013 in English :O

  • AnimusVox

    Hory shet :o

  • Guest

    This is obviously bullshit. Square Enix doesn’t bring good games over here anymore.

    *looks at Type-0*

    • AnimusVox

      Hey don’t kill the dream man/woman/Kind sir or madam.

    • Tac-Mex

      Yeah, i hope they really bring Bravely Default.

      Also i don’t trust much Siliconera, i remembered they were going to announce a Square game but it was a Cavia cancelled game, everyone was expecting The World Ends with You

  • Now we need Final Fantasy Type-0 need to Localize to the west!

    • Bloodios

      Certainly! After all, the localization process was already 90% complete when they decided to scrap it.

    • Kurisu Makise

      Not that I’m not happy (cause good news is good news) but it’s a bad day day when a Final Fantasy title, especially one which was supposed to be within the Fabula Nova, can’t get localized before a smaller new IP.

      • I agree, but I think the point you make is more about BD being on the 3DS, and Type 0 being on the PSP. It’s all about how many copies they think it will sell, all about the money. =/

        Now, this is not meant to be an excuse at all. I just think the platforms play a big role. With that said, releasing Type 0 digitally on PSN still makes a ton of sense to me. Sadly, Square-Enix has a rather poor showing of PSP games on PSN.

        So stupid… I think they would make quite a bit if they put more PSP games on PSN.

        This is something we discussed before. =P

        • Kurisu Makise

          There might be a bit more to it than that (though yes, we’ve discussed this before). It’s also brand imaging most likely. Just as I was able to point out the severe problem with this, I’m sure Square Enix realizes this as well. A Final Fantasy title was not localized, a title that was apart of a new series. Doing a digital only release of a big FF like this, paints a bad image when it should have been at retail. However platform issues and all. More than likely, they’re just waiting for a port at this point, safer on Vita or a PS3/PS Vita ideally (for them), before release. However, considering Square Enix’s tactics this gen, this would have been better off as a good will move. Certainly would have inspired more confidence and then we wouldn’t have worried about Bravely Default coming in the first place.

          • I agree. I guess our only hope is that the team meets up and makes HD Type 0 for PS3 or something. Then, we might just get it here in the west. =/

            • Kurisu Makise

              Of course, this is assuming the team isn’t A) Working on something for 3DS or B) Working on Versus XIII and or Lightning Returns. =(

  • whiteferrero

    AWESOME! and i can tell by my gut feeling that it’s true. haha.

  • Sevyne

    Until I hear an official announcement, I’ll hold off on the celebration. Reliable sources sometimes prove to be not so reliable.

    Now that the negative is out of the way, I do hope it ends up being true. It’s one of the very few SE games I’ve been looking forward to.

  • I hope this rumor is true.

    • DarthBrian

      Me too.

  • PrinceHeir

    the trifecta of Square Enix unlocalized games.

    Final Fantasy Type-0, Bravery Default, Dragon Quest VII.

    the hell are you doing Square Enix US/EU!?!??!

  • Jaylesse

    I like this Matsuda guy already! xD

  • Adol Christin

    I’m liking the new SE already :)

  • Derpazu

    So uh…Type-0?

  • LordKaiser

    About time if true.
