Fusible.com has reported that over the past week, Square Enix has registered two domain names and an European Community Trademark for “All The Bravest.” At the same time the company filed a trademark application covering “video game software”, “video game strategy guide books” and much, much more. The question that remains is, what is “All The Bravest”? Well the name alone implies that it might be a localization of RPG Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, which if it is the case, good on them for changing the name up before bringing it over. Another thing to note is that the trademark is from the Japanese branch of the company, but is only filed for US/EU regions, so it’s likely not going to be a brand new game. Seeing as all evidence seems to point in this direction, it’s probably safe to assume that it is the case, and we need only wait for an official announcement.
For those who are not familiar with Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, it is a japanese RPG that seems to be a sort of spiritual sequel to Final Fantasy: 4 Heroes of Light. It employs similar visuals, a job system akin to Final Fantasy 5, but where it differs is the gameplay, in which it has been fine tuned. Spells use good ole fashioned MP, and every character has something called Bravery Points. By “Defaulting” in battle, you essentially guard and gain a Bravery Point. If you select “Brave”, you can use up a bravery point to deal massive damage this turn, however if you have no Bravery Points stocked up you have to wait out your next turn, throwing yourself at the mercy of your enemies. There are multiple jobs that any character in your party can use, from classics Black Mage, White Mage and Monk, to more unique ones such as Pirate, Time Mage and Vampire.
