Bravely Default has job system, random encounters

Square Enix's Tomoya Asano talks new RPG.

After a Tokyo Game Show reveal, Inside Games followed up with Square Enix’s Tomoya Asano on Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, their new role-playing game for Nintendo 3DS.

Bravely Default has four main characters, one of which is the girl shown in this artwork. Above the girl, we see the “Flying Fairy” of the game’s subtitle.

Characters will battle using jobs and abilities, and like a “standard RPG,” battles will be a turn-based, random encounter situation.

Asano remained tight-lipped regarding story and sound staff. He would only say that they’re working with people who’ve never worked with Square before, and that they’re “interesting people.”

Thanks, Andriasang.
