Bravely Second is flying fairly to Japan on April 23, 2015, though there still isn't word on a Western release.

There are demos, and then there are demos that make half the game free. Step in a new Bravely Default demo out July 28 in Japan, which will let 3DS owners play chapters 1-4 of the Square Enix game without spending a single yen. So that's something like 30 hours at least of high-quality, old-school...

A fantasy world plagued by evil? Check. Powerful magic crystals? Check. A party of four heroes to save the day? Check. Lots of patently ridiculous names? Double check. Bravely Default has the hallmarks a Square JRPG, there's no doubt of that. The 3DS game is two weeks out from hitting North Ameri...

We all learned the tragic news that Sackboy wouldn't be appearing in a new video game for a few months longer than we thought. What this post presupposes is: Maybe he will? Not as a part of an officially sanctioned LittleBigPlanet adventure, mind you -- rather, he's been added to the roster of play...

Without the proper prior information, the 3D Dot Game Heroes trailer posted above would seem like a rare miss for Atlus' clever marketing machine.
