Bravely Default to Feature a Job System Similar to Final Fantasy V

Bravely Default: Flying Fairy is a new RPG IP being developed for the Nintendo 3DS by Square Enix.  Producer Tomoya Asano, who also produced Final Fantasy III and IV on the Nintendo DS, granted Inside Games, a Japanese gaming site, a short interview about the game, providing a bit insight about the game.

In that interview, Asano described Bravely Default as a “standard RPG”, complete with random encounters and turn-based battles.  He also noted that the job system would be similar to Final Fantasy V.

For those of you unfamiliar with the system, you unlocked various classes as you progressed through the game and at any given time outside of battle you could switch them.  The kicker, however, was that you had to level up those classes individually to unlock new skills for that class.

Bravely Default: Flying Fairy is still on track to release sometime in 2012 in Japan, with no word yet on a North American or European localization.

    Wow, game sounds great, I’m very interested now.

    The DS was always the best option for fans of older RPGs, as the console market has shifted away from standard RPG gameplay elements, like open worlds, towns, freedom to explore, random battles, etc.
