Norende Village Restoration Lists by silktail

Updated: 02/20/2014
Highest Rated Guide


This guide lists the things that you unlock by restoring Norende Village and the time each upgrade takes.

Getting Started

Norende Village becomes available during the Intro chapter of the game (before the first boss battle).

To access Norende Village: Press the half-circle on the left of the map on the touch screen (or press right on the D-Pad), then select the Norende Village icon (houses and trees).

Use the touchscreen to navigate the Norende Village screen. Select a (lit) site and Confirm that you want to start building there. Select the number of workers to build it and confirm to start them building.

The time it takes will be divided by the number of villagers working on it. The time will increase while the save file is being played, or in sleep mode. (Using the Home menu with the game in the background, also seems to work.)

Note: The construction will stop if you turn off the game, or leave the game on the title screen.


To buy the items & equipment from the completed shops, talk to the Adventurer (who saves the game) and select to Buy items or Buy equipment.

You can't physically visit the village yourself.


You receive a villager when you StreetPass a person with the game (or demo). You can StreetPass them several times to get more villagers, but usually have to wait 8 hours between each StreetPass.

You can also receive more villagers when you Update Data. This gives you a random number of Net Friend Invites, once per day. (The Net Friends give you a villager and a Summon Guest move, but can't be used for Abilink.)

Update Data is found in the Save Menu. (Select the Save icon on the touch screen. Or talk to an Adventerer and select the Save option.)

Once per day

The "day" seems to change at midnight in Japan (UTC+09:00). You can update for more Net Invites after this time.

E.g. 00:00 JST , 15:00 GMT , 10:00 EST , 09:00 CST , 08:00 MST , 07:00 PST .

(Japan does not change their clocks for daylight saving time, so the time shouldn't change in summer.)

Note: Net Friend Invites are not the same as Registering Friends online. (Friends only give their Summon Friend move and Abilink data. So no villagers.)


The Trader, Combat Item Shop and Compound Shop will periodical send you presents from their stock.

An "update" symbol will appear on the Norende Village icon and you just need to enter the Norende screen to receive the gifts.

Special Moves

The Special Move option eventually becomes available during the Intro (shortly after gaining all 4 characters).

The Special Moves Shop will give you new special moves for the weapons you equip, and the Parts Shops will give you parts to attach to the special moves. (No purchase is necessary. They will appear in the Special menu as soon as they are unlocked.)

See the Special menu for details on their activation conditions.

Unlocked Bonus Equipment

The DLC bonus equipment from the original Bravely Default: Flying Fairy Japanese release, are now available from the Norende shops.

They do not have Encyclopedia entries in D's Journal, because they were originally just DLC and not available as part of the main game.


Outfits have to be bought from the Adventurer just like normal equipment. They have a seperate tab from the other equipment on sale.

Once you own an Outfit a new equipment slot will appear in the Equip menu, which will allow you to equip your outfits.

Note: Outfits are not "Ever-changing" and do not change over time. The description seems to be a mistranslation.

Nemesis in your village

You might receive some Nemesis from Square Enix servers when you update your data, from the Net Invites when updating, and/or from another player you have StreetPassed.

They do not hinder progress with building Norende, so you can leave them there as long as you like. (Or fight them, send them via StreetPass, etc.)

Note: You stop sending a Nemesis if you beat it in battle. So don't kill the ones you want to send on!
