Next year, role-playing game know-it-alls Square Enix will grace the Nintendo 3DS with a new, original RPG. It's called Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, a silly name for a potentially intriguing game.

Nintendo showed off snippets of gameplay from Bravely Default: Flying Fairy at its 3DS Conference today, revealing a game that looked visually close to Nintendo DS game Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light. But Bravely Default is pitched as an original IP, one that capitalizes on the 3DS's cameras and augmented reality features for its gameplay. Expect AR cards to play some role in the 2012 game.

Yeah, Squeenix, naming your new RPG after the endgame of loan nonpayment is sure to win over the kiddies, especially since it conjures up the pleasant thoughts of the housing crisis and this past summer's disgusting politicking. Way to go.
