Bravely Default crashes on loading save

Whenever I try to load a save on Bravely Default, the game seems to crash almost immediately. If I make a new save, I can watch the opening cutscene only for it to crash when it finishes. Doesn’t give me any error just closes. Don’t have this issue with any other game.
