After months and months of waiting with bated breath (okay, not really… this was actually a pretty standard turnaround time for a video game)… Bravely Default hits U.S. stores today! It’s a new game for Nintendo 3DS and it’s part of the Final Fantasy family, which is absolutely thrilling for me. I am the voice of one of the four main characters: Edea Lee. She’s a tiny, spunky, badass warrior. That is actually how I would describe myself in real life (if my real life happened to take place in a medieval setting), so this role was a perfect fit.
Bravely Default has been getting some amazing reviews across the board. Here are a few of my favorites:
“In many ways, this game is worth savoring. If Bravely Default is RPG comfort food, it’s the type of comfort food you see on one of those Food Network shows where the chef has to add her own spin to make some weird-yet-delicious concoction like deep-fried mac-n-cheese or cornbread with bacon syrup. Unusual, yet familiar—that’s Bravely Default.” –Bravely Default: The Kotaku Review (Kotaku.com)
“Bravely Default is a classic Final Fantasy game without all of the baggage attached to the franchise.” -What’s in a Name? ‘Bravely Default’ is Classic Final Fantasy (TheVerge.com)
“Bravely Default is almost to the Final Fantasy series what ‘Casino Royale’ was to James Bond films.” –Bravely Default Review (Joystiq.com)
