While it has its roots entrenched in old-school Final Fantasy, Bravely Default is still a new property, so the figures are strong. They've already made a similarly strong impression on president Yosuke Matsuda, who said the game's global sales made his company reconsider its approach to JRPG development.
"Bravely Default [...] ended up selling well all around the world," Matsuda said back in March. "For the new games we'll be developing from this point on, while this may sound a bit extreme, we've been talking about making them as heavy JRPGs. I believe that way, we can better focus on our target, which will also bring better results."
The sequel, Bravely Second, remains only confirmed for Japan - where it's still without a release date - but those overseas figures suggest Western fans needn't worry too much.
