The more I read about Bravely Default, greater my excitation become.
I must specify the feature to avoid random encounters isn't totally new, I hope Square-Enix won't take all the credits for the 'innovation', especially considering it took them over 50 games to bring that feature in one of their games. The Wild Arms series used a very similar feature during the PS2 era. I've heard similar positive stories about Blue Dragon on XBox. I believe Skyborn by Dancing Dragon Games also had this feature. My take: it was about time Square-Enix decided to bring it after 30 years of history, they should have done this a long time ago.
