All The Bravest trademarked by Square-Enix

Something big is going on with All The Bravest. Square-Enix has grabbed the domains allthebravest.com and allthebravest.net, plus a European Community Trademark. Is it too much to hope for this being related to a Bravely Default localization?

Oh please, oh please, oh please! I'd have settled for it just being called "Bravely Default", but, nice to see Squenix know that the Engrish title really makes no sense in the rest of the world.

I don't care what it's called as long as it gets released in EU. Though I guess All the Bravest would be even better ^^

And by the way I'm posting this from my U ^^

Rumor is that it's the next generation of Dissidia.

How pissed would people be if that were the case? Haha.

Is it the world wide release, or released just in US?

It makes even less sense in the Japanese world, of course.

But of course, that's all until you actually play the game, where it makes a LOT more sense, obviously.

I too just thought it was some weird named rpg for the longest time, till I played the demo, which I got hooked on for 10 hours, and then where I went out and some how managed to find a copy of the sold out game, which I must tell everyone is a VERY fun and nicely polished game. A big surprise for me.

I'd love to hear an example where an adverb followed by a noun makes ANY sense whatsoever without additional context. My well awareness and passably understanding of the English language just scream "wrong" every singly time I read that verily title.

Now if they meant "Bravery Default" and it's an l/r thing, I could accept that. Still sounds a bit weird, but at least not like a completely abomination.


Default can be used as a verb. eg. "He defaulted on his loan."

It did to me too. Just seemed like any old Japanese game with a weird English name for the hell of it. Obviously a name that you'd never see in the west, as it did just feel weird and make no sense.
It makes very much sense and just feels very normal to me now though, after playing the game a lot.

To explain a bit about it, first, "brave" and "default" are two major parts of the battle system.
But just in English, being "default" means you are... well, default. Doing nothing special. Just staying as you are.
Now, if you're "bravely" something, then you'd be that something, bravely.
So in this case, it's being bravely default. You are brave and dare to pick the option to be default.
Does this not make sense? Sure I've barely said anything about the actual game, but grammatically it makes perfect sense to me. Sure, it was a phrase I'd never ever expect to see and so felt very weird at first, but if you think about it like this and get over the fact that you've never seen such a phrase before, it does make sense.
Keeping the same grammar and turning it around, you could get something like "stupidly active".
Makes the same sense.
Of course, if you think of "default" as just a simple noun like the setting on a computer maybe, it may seem very weird. Same with say "stupidly square". If "square" was a noun, yeah, weird. But if you take it as an adverb/adjective/whatever, then it does not feel as weird and just works.

Hopefully this helps you get over the weird feeling of it all a bit.

Not sure how accepting a spelling mistake is better though.

Edit: I see the problem was resolved :p
