Earlier this week, Tomoyo Asano, the producer of Square Enix’s upcoming Nintendo 3DS RPG “Bravely Default: Flying Fairy” has recently stated that there are currently no plans to localise and release the game outside of Japan.
Since “Bravely Default” was first announced, it has gained a lot of attention from various gaming websites across the globe, so such an announcement came as a shock for gaming fans spread throughout the world’s oceans. However, Asano did almost tease people to talk about the game on social media networks like Facebook and Twitter and to keep watching for new information from them. Is Asano challenging us to prove our interest in the title? Well then Mr. Asano, challenge accepted: I hereby launch “Operation Brave” – a campaign to get Square Enix to localise and release “Bravely Default: Flying Fairy” in North America and Europe.
“Operation Brave” has one goal: To get “Bravely Default: Flying Fairy” localised and released in the west. Similar operations in the past have helped RPGs receive releases outside of Japan, so the effect they have on the gaming community is clear. If we be brave and refuse to accept the default, then we can win.
Secondly, you can tweet your support for the game to Square Enix Europe. Be nice and polite though; they won’t listen to any rude or offensive messages and it will make the project look bad. You can also spread your support around other fan websites – but if they have a no advertising rule or something, please don’t bug them. Perhaps a private message to a member of staff asking for permission?
So yeah, Be Brave! Don’t accept the Default! Spread the love for Bravely Default!
