Square Enix has kicked off a rather large Thanksgiving sale on its online store.

Through December 2, gamers can pick up titles for 50 percent off or more. Kingdom Hearts 3D, Heroes of Ruin, and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy are among the discounted games.

You can find all items on sale here.

Two Japanese trademarks hint at future localizations for Dragon Quest titles. Don’t let the fact that they’ve been registered in Japan fool you – the names themselves are in English: “Luminaries of the Legendary Line” and “The Seeds of Salvation”.

Neither title actually includes the “Dragon Quest” name. But both use similar alliteration as past games, like Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen, Hand of the Heavenly Bride, Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation, and Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies. Previous overseas launches have also been outed first by trademarks.

Nintendo hasn’t entirely removed Bravely Default’s “Where the Fairy Flies” subtitle for the European release of the game, despite what we had originally expected. The extra tag can be seen at the screen where players load their selected save file. While it appears that “Where the Fairy Flies” only appears on the screen above, we can’t say so with absolutely certainty.

Bravely Default is now simply called… Bravely Default in Europe. Nintendo was originally planning a “Where the Fairy Flies” subtitle, but it has since been dropped.

Review copies starting to make their way around confirm that Bravely Default does not contain a subtitle of any kind in Europe. That should be the case for North America as well.
