I am living in Japan with a Japanese 3DS and want to pick up a copy of Bravely Default. My Japanese can order me a coffee, but not get me through a RPG..

So does the game (specifically the Japanese version) have the option to swap language (for audio, or even just subtitles).

If you are able to work out the Japanese for "Tactics", "Config" and "Language". You will find it by opening the menu and going in that order (Menu -> Tactics -> Config -> Language).

You can't do this before having gone through the intro however, but once you have saved your settings, you can restart the game in those settings.

  • Awesome! I had read that was available on the English version (to be able to swap back to Japanese audio) but wasn't sure it was available on the Japanese version

  • @Chris Apparently, it's the same in all versions, just that each version is defaulted to the local language. I can't confirm this, so hopefully you can!

    Confirmed, it was indeed under Menu -> Tactics -> Config -> Language. Even better I can choose to listen to the Japanese with English subtitles, or vice versa, very cool. And a cool game so far!
