Forget Final Fantasy, it looks like there’s a new JRPG on the block and that’s Bravely Default. Square Enix has announced that their new JRPG for the Nintendo 3DS has just hit a massive one million sales milestone worldwide. Bravely Default launched on the 3DS in Japan in 2012 which was followed by a re-release titled For the Sequel which launched in Japan as well as western territories at the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014.
Square Enix revealed that Japanese sales of Bravely Default, also known as Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, have reached an impressive 400,000 sales both retail and digitally, whereas elsewhere, sales have hit a much higher number of sales, 600,000. Square Enix didn’t reveal how sales were split between the original Bravely Default and its updated edition, For the Sequel.
Strong sales and the great reception that Bravely Default has received has helped Square Enix realise that there’s demand for more JRPG’s and a fan base exists worldwide, no just in Japan which is great news considering a sequel for Bravely Default is in the works for the 3DS titled Bravely Second. A release date is yet to be announced.
