Bravely Default II - True sequel to the best FF since XII - demo out now!!

Recommended Posts

Seems like another sequel to my favourite JRPG Bravely Default has been announced. And for the Switch no less :)  

 

534D07F0-ACB9-458C-BE0F-F063D0B784CF-e15

 

Introducing Bravely Default II.

 

The story will be completely new and feature a party of characters different from the original Nintendo 3DS games.

And while Bravely Second: End Layer continued the story of the original game, it looks like Bravely Default II will be a new standalone game, that might probably just share the overall themes from the first two games. This is of course nothing new for the publishing company, Square Enix, as both the Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy series have followed this model.

 

The game will be co-developed by both Team Asano and Claytechworks - the devs behind the first Bravely Default. Reno will return as well, to do the soundtrack.

 

Debut trailer:

Releases some time Q4 2020.

:omg:

 

I didn’t play the original, but Bravely Second really is one of the best RPGs I’ve ever played. I was pretty disappointed with Octopath Traveler, so I’m glad they’re revisiting the Bravely series again. Can’t wait :wub:

I beat the original and it was a disaster of a second half but a solid 6/10 overall. I heard they didn't repeat the mistakes with Bravely Second but I just haven't tried it yet. 

I hope with a bit more behind it, this could develop into a good series. The town's, battle system and cast of the original were fantastic.

So glad to see this series continuing on the Switch - and its looking better than ever!

The JRPG of choice for FF fans who weren't too happy with the series' new direction since XIII.

The overworld and town parts look better on a telly, while the battles look better in handheld mode. And this bothers me considerably :(

I'm glad I can skip BD this time around, now it's not incredibly beautiful illustrations papering over the cracks of the most shallow characters and story.

It looks like a step down from Octopath Traveler in every way. The four crystals of fire, water, wind and earth? Come on. And the art style isn't a patch on Octopath. Boo.

 

Octopath 2 on non-mobile instead, please.

I’ve been looking for something to play on my Switch, as I can’t play Doom when the kids are about (which is ALWAYS). This will do nicely.

I think it looks gorgeous.

Finally got round to playing the demo of this today. Really enjoying it but it seems quite hard!

I think it mentioned they tweaked the difficulty especially for the demo so people would get more out of it. A pretty daring choice but I like it, in fact I hope the full game will have the option to start like this. Nothing as annoying as a JRPG with a good turn based battle system that's too easy (I'm looking at you Grandia 2).

Yeah I’ve been really enjoying it. Staggering back to the town and scraping money together for a night at the inn to restore HP/MP is way more fun than just having 99 High Potions and Ether in the inventory (of just spamming cure without a care in the world)
