I have recently acquired Bravely Default for my 3DS, and since I started my current save file, I haven't even shut the system off. I had wondered if I could ever truly become immersed in a game with systems like some of the older Final Fantasy titles, like the whole Job system, but I literally can't put this game down. It goes with me everywhere; I even put my 3DS in my locker at work so I can play it on my breaks.
However, I've run into something that greatly confuses me. I read that if you play through the Bravely Default demo, and you're able to acquire villagers in your Norende Restoration efforts, you can import up to 20 of them into a save file on the full game. Now, the question is, would I be able to import them on a save file that's already in progress, or would I have to start completely over to reap the benefits of that? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
