Bravely Default demo coming to U.S. on January 2

Nintendo details StreetPass and Sleep Points systems.

Bravely Default

Nintendo will launch a demo for Bravely Default in North America on January 2, the company announced.

Much like its European counterpart, the U.S. demo is an “exclusive story with hours of content not included in the main game.”

Nintendo also detailed a couple new features. If players close their system while the game is active, they could gather additional warriors via StreetPass, as well as earn “Sleep Points” for every eight cumulative hours of down time.

Sleep Points can be used during battle to change equipment, revive an ally, heal your party, or unleash more powerful attacks. Players who don’t want to wait for their points to refill will have the option of purchasing additional “SP Potions” via the 3DS eShop.

The full game will launch on February 7.
