Yesterday, Square Enix announced a new iteration in the Bravely Default series: but it's iOS/Android and free-to-play with in-game transactions. Also, there was no release announced outside of Japan, but that might just be because it's early.

On the bright side, the game looks very nice visually, and the gameplay certainly tracks to what Bravely fans have gotten used to. Additionally, it appears that some key personnel from the development of Bravely Default and Bravely Second are involved, which seems like it might tie the game a little more closely to those games and not the later, and less-well-received Bravely Default II, which was released earlier this year.

There's no release date announced for Japan as yet, and again, no indication of a release outside Japan yet either.

I'm not sure how I feel about this merging of the world of mobile games and the world of big-budget "serious" games.

On one hand, it's good that mobile games are getting serious money and effort put into them.

On the other hand, this means that entire mainline entries in franchises may become locked behind time-limited mobile game services.
