I disagree, I think that voice acting is PERFECT.

Posted by AlexanderSheen

More like the sound mixing is fucked up, the voice acting is fine.

At least I know I'm not the only one that cringed at the VA. Shades of Chaos Wars.

This game has a title that would be hard to explain to my girlfriend.

Why do most of of the jrpg developers have a fetish for crystals?

Completely agree!

"I don't suppose I have much choice" line had me in stitches!

Also, wtf kind of name is Tiz?

I think it's hilarious that every time someone speaks in the trailer, it says that you can use the Japanese voice acting on screen.

I have been waiting for this game for so long! It looks gorgeous :D I found the way the video ended stranger than the voice acting

Posted by Epidehl

Is that Bryce Papenbrook again as the main character? I'm usually one to defend a lot of dub/english voice acting stuff, but I seriously can't stand that guy and he's been the MC in a ton of stuff lately.

Posted by artraider

I am very excited for the game,there is likely a reason it kept saying on the bottom it can be played in Japanese audio.

Posted by MormonWarrior

Boy howdy, I think I'd prefer NO voice acting to whatever the heck this is. The game itself looks alright though.

Posted by Ehker

Hopefully 8-4 didn't work on the voice recording. That hot mic at the beginning alone, yeeesh... :p

Let me guess, orphans.

quite the clash between the trailer video bits and the PSP-quality game graphics

Posted by Morningstar

You might want to do something about those oversized heads as well.

Posted by InfiniteGeass

I think you should really do something about the snarky titles you post for videos.

Edited by a_randay92

Holy shit, there better be Japanese voice acting with subs because that English dub was terrible. The game still looks great though.

Edited by Fear_the_Booboo

At 1:40, there's somebody tapping wildly on that skip button...

Square doesn't want him to skip though...

Every single time you hear the voice acting it says "Choose between English and Japanese voice overs" in captions underneath. So I'm guessing even they knew how bad this was.

The game itself looks pretty good though. Now where's Dragon Quest 7?

Posted by geirr

So there are four crystals? Sweet.

Edited by atesh42

There was a note early in the video that said you could choose Japanese dub. Voice acting problem solved.

Also.. do you ride a whale?

Edited by bkbroiler

This looks like the most exciting video game ever made.

@flappy: The voice acting is far, far better than Chaos Wars. What you're comparing isn't in the same galaxy.

Edited by ZeroCrescent

Questionable dub choices aside (You can use the Japanese voice track if it bothers you so much), this is one of my more anticipated RPGs for next year. It's basically a spiritual sequel to Final Fantasy V from the developers of 3D Dot Game Heroes. I've also heard that while the characters and setting sound generic on the surface, it's just a ruse, as the story is supposed to go off in some interesting and unique directions. Plus, we're getting the updated "For the Sequel" version, which has a bunch of improvements over the 2012 original.

It says so right there in the trailer: you can switch to JP audio.

Posted by ildon

@alexandersheen: It really isn't. Even ignoring the blown out audio, the voice actors sound like they're half-asleep and reading off a page.

Posted by Pierre42

Getting a strong FF3 DS feel from this game.

Holy shit.

Bravely Default? How do they come up with these ridiculous names??

True. I'd revisit Chaos Wars to familiarize myself with it, but, uh...

Yeah...

Edited by ChrisTaran

I'm excited for the game finally making it over, but yikes... dat English.

Thank god they keep reminding you in the trailer that the Japanese track is an option, heh.

Edited by Rayeth

Well thank goodness you can swap to the Japanese voice acting. I've been looking forward to this quite a bit after hearing about it on the 8-4 podcast. Looks good, except for that awful english voice talent.

Edited by LoktarOgar

I feel like this trailer was stitched together by someone who just finished making their first AMV.

The ending was more WTF than any of the voice acting.

Posted by Eribuster

Hmm, they didn't pick a subtitle for the NA version yet. Or will there be no subtitle? We'll be missing out on "For the Sequel" and "Where the Fairy Flies" that JPN and EU are getting!

Bravely Default? How do they come up with these ridiculous names??

The battle system revolves around the options to Brave or Default. To Brave is to attack that use up command currency. To Default is to do nothing and save command currency. On the assumption that the battle system was devised before the title, it's not too hard to see such important terminology of the game make its way to the title. I've gotten the sense that the subtitle for the first version of the game, "Flying Fairy," relates to the narrative. ("For the Sequel / Where the Fairy Flies" is an improved version of the game.)

Yes, it is still a very silly name. Personally, I see it as a feature of Japanese games now.

THAT MIC IS ON FIRE BABY FIRE!

Posted by JackSukeru

Cool that you can pick between English and Japanese VA. I know what I'll be picking though.

Japanese.

I'll be picking Japanese.

Posted by NDN_Shadow

I was wondering why the artstyle reminded me so much of FF3 DS, but then I saw it was made by Square Enix.

Posted by gesi1223

I don't find the voice acting very offensive at all. I actually wonder what all the fuss is about? Of course I'm not saying it's good voice acting, but come on guys its not THAT bad in this trailer.

Bravry Refault engrish

What engrish? I didn't hear any.

Handhelds -> No Voice

FTFY

Posted by MideonNViscera

Since I don't really expect good voice acting, or even half sensible dialogue from a JRPG, I'm pumped for this.

Edited by terpiscorei

When will Square-Enix finally get serious and start making JRPGs that appeal to people who don't like JRPGs? These painfully obvious headlines constructed to show indifference don't write themselves, you know.

Posted by Captain_Felafel

Guuuuuys... this isn't okay... you can't put this out like this...

Posted by Shoobee

What the fuck. They can't let that slide. How awful.

Posted by Hunter5024

I was all ready to whine about the dismissive attitude, but then I watched the trailer and I was all "Okay. Totally."

Posted by Pixel_Kaiser

@infinitegeass: I agree. I get that it's suppose to be funny but like... I get the impression he's not even trying here, which isn't cool.

Posted by DoctorSmashman

Either way, I hope there's an option to mute the voices entirely. I've never liked voice acting in handheld games. I even muted the dialog in Shin Megami Tensei IV.

Posted by mrcraggle

That's right, get up on that mic. Blow it out if you can ;)
