Bravely Default II producer Masashi Takahashi spoke with Famitsu recently about changes made to the game. Player feedback is important and properly implementing needed features and changes goes a long way. Here’s what Takahashi had to say, courtesy of Nintendo Everything:

“The list of things we changed was endless. To put it simply, we pulled the camera back slightly in dungeons. People who played the demo felt it was too easy to get lost in dungeons and that they got attacked by off-screen monsters. So we addressed those concerns by pulling the camera back.

We also cleaned up the faces on character icons in shops and menus. We didn’t change the models or anything. We just adjusted the shadows and such to make things look nicer. Additionally, we added the ability to compare new weapons and armor in shops. I’m kind of embarrassed to say this, but this is a feature that should’ve been in the game. We just weren’t able to implement it in time for the [first] demo.

I was ashamed at how often I found myself apologizing while reading survey responses from fans. With that in mind, however, I’m also somewhat relieved. It reconfirmed that this was the right direction for the final product.”
