Hey folks! So, just like I did my 'Ask me anything' about my several hours of hands on time with the full version of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, I'm currently busying myself with an upcoming RPG - Square Enix's Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, being published in the West by Nintendo.

I know the demo is out, but I've been playing the full, final game for a bit over a week now -- so ask me anything!

To start off, a fun tidbit - I absolutely love the text the game surfaces when you first boot it, giving advice about difficulty levels:
You can adjust difficulty and the encounter rate whenever you like. You can take advantage of that to make your life a lot easier, sure. But the easy life won't prepare you for the challenges you must face one day. Be sure you won't regret your choices when the time comes.​

Are the majority of spells unique in name and design or do they simply follow the Final Fantasy iterations faithfully?

Is there a particular system for the character's growth(Sphere grid, Junction system, etc)?

Is there more than just the four characters?

I'll think of more.

Could you talk a bit about dungeons and towns design? like how many areas/shops in towns?
Is it similar to PS1 FF era with many sections, interiors and side areas?

Just a note -- I'm still ploughing through this, but I'll answer these questions and any others posted tomorrow!

Long story short: I'm loving the game. Very traditional FF style with some modern twists. Utterly beautiful throughout.
