Rated T for Teen

Platform: 3DS

Release Date: 2/7/13

Bravely Default was originally a Final Fantasy sequel, but it has become its own entity. This JPRG plays with traditional RPG fighting mechanics by allowing players to save up their moves and spend them later for a bigger payoff. The game has been praised for its art design and gameplay, though some find its costuming  too revealing, especially since some of the characters are supposed to be fairly young.
