Second time’s the bravest.
Bravely Default, when it released earlier this year exclusively for the 3DS, was a hell of a game. A very great game, in fact, that also met with the success that it deserved at retail. We already knew Square Enix were busy working on a sequel, called Bravely Second, and now we get to have our first look at some screenshots from the game and some concept art, which in general show us that Bravely Second will be more of the same- which, when ‘the same’ was something as good as Bravely Default, is pretty damn okay and acceptable.
It also shows us- I guess this is a minor spoiler?- that Agnés will also be returning in the sequel (that’s the girl in those pictures), which I suppose shouldn’t be much of a surprise either way.
Bravely Second is due to launch exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. We have no idea when it is due to launch, although given the first game’s success in the west (more copies sold in the west than in Japan), we can at least be reasonably hopeful that the localization turnover period won’t be as long this time as it was for the first game.
