Silicon Studio Outlines Plans for Bravely Series on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

A GDC interview with the Bravely team reveals an ambition to take the turn-based RPG series further.

Speaking with the team at Silicon Studio, company president Takehiko Terada outlined the strategy to use the 3D features of the 3DS "as much a possible", ensuring that "we designed every environment to be best viewed in 3D."

Both the debut game, Bravely Default and its successor Bravely Second have been crafted with Nintendo's hardware in mind, with scenes conjured from ground-up to ensure a smooth transition when the 3D effect is switched on.

Going forward, the team "don't have a clear plan yet" when it comes to going multi-platform with the Bravely series, but for now the use of 3D has cemented Nintendo's platform as the ideal choice. Silicon Studio do intend on  making a "stronger franchise" that stands up to Square Enix's own flagship series, Final Fantasy. "We plan to continue with numerous titles", Terada said, which may even see a possible change in the world itself, "but at this point we'll continue in the same one."

As long as the other works remain Nintendo exclusives I'm all for it!! It's pathetic the amount of doubt & ignorance Nintendo gets from the less experienced gaming audience, the more MUST HAVE titles Nintendo gets exclusive access to the more unites Nintendo can sell so I hope they keep this & their other future works as Nintendo ONLY titles!! Smilie

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

Do hope they can expand this into a franchise that can stand its ground alongside Final Fantasy. Where FF has taken a more action approach in recent times, Bravely is more like one for the old-school fans, so the two should co-exist easily enough. They will have to move on from the same world and characters after Bravely Second, though, which I'm sure they will do.

If it continues to do well enough and they get the people behind it, hopefully they can expand to console entries, too.

Yeah I wouldn't mind seeing Wii U iterations though you can't deny the vivid beauty this game provides with stereo scopic 3D.
