Bravely Default Sequel, Bravely Second, Announced For 3DS

By Ishaan . December 4, 2013 . 5:14am

Bravely Second, a full-fledged sequel to Bravely Default, is in development for the Nintendo 3DS, this week’s Jump magazine has revealed.


You may recall that a while ago, Square Enix filed trademarks for “Bravely Second” and “Bravely Third”. While Bravely Second is the name of a gameplay mechanic in Bravely Default: For the Sequel, it looks like it’s also the title of the second game.


A release date for Bravely Second has not been announced, although Jump magazine does reveal one of the characters in the game, named Magnolia.

    Hot damn o.o;

  • Sentsuizan_93

    OOOOH! Getting the first game on Friday, but this is nice too. Buy this, and we’ll (hopefully) get this too everyone!!

  • raitouniverse

    hoho awesome. Though, do you think they inadvertently also confirmed a third game? Could just be them being careful.

  • Zangetsu777


  • kuroneko0509

    All hail Asano-san

  • Marcelo Gouvêa

    So let’s throw our money at the first so we can get this baby stateside! Chop chop

  • Jero

    She’s cute! I’m sure I will love the first game, I hope the game does well so we get this one too.

  • Pereb

    So we can (maybe) assume there’ll be a Western release in 2016-2017, can’t wait!

    • Detrimont

      if the first one does well enough we might only have to wait a couple of months

  • RovCal


    i love bravely defaut like crazy… even though i havent played it yet.. my most anticipated game of this generation (ps3/x360 generation)

  • Go2hell66

    Well that was fast

    • British_Otaku

      Not if you remember that the first game released last year and that Square Enix love to announce games well in advance of releasing them or even predecessors in series see Dragon Quest X and Final Fantasy Versus XIII.

  • Neophoton

    Well, better await preorder opportunities so I can play this too.

  • Nice

  • British_Otaku

    I wonder whether they will officially announce Bravely Third before For the Sequel/International Version of the first game makes it to America. It is Square Enix after all, they have done worse before. :P

    Looking forward to this, but still need to get For The Sequel/European Release which might not fit into my Christmas budget.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Yeahhhhhhh.^_^ Can’t wait for this game.^_^………Can’t wait for the first one too.T_T(Asia region here.)

  • Kornelious

    Sweet, even better knowin we’ve got the first one coming, and limited edition’s no less :)

  • Алексей Гришин

    Meanwhile in Europe…

    • porkiewpyne

      I suppose I am somewhat less saddened at the fact that I went with the regular version :|

    • Astraye

      That figure is actually pretty ugly, you miss nothing.

      • I thnk that was his point unless I am misintepreting. It is indeed hideous!

      • Samsara09

        how dare those fucks sully our goddess of sexiness,our dear Agnes!!!Ah,well.better off with the regular edition

        • Seven of The Scions

          It’s a LOL

    • Sentsuizan_93

      That figure is….. Disappointing… :/
      I don’t know why, maybe it’s the face…..

      • Pereb

        The face and the painting.

    • British_Otaku

      I was highly considering getting the limited edition, till I saw the price… then the figure itself… I’ll put the money towards something else like buying one of the these from a reseller (the Japanese release of the first game had a great limited edition), the artbooks and stuff, I can pick them up later…

    • Go2hell66

      WAHAHAHAAHAH OMFG, regular edition it is

    • Zeonsilt

      Looks really cheap.

    • Kusabi

      Good god.

    • Go2hell66

      u know whats even more sad, i know people that payed $100+ for this CE XD

      • Thrasher429

        Sadly I’m one of them. Though I mainly got it for the artbook + soundtrack

    • Thrasher429

      Is…Is the eye lopsided?

    • James Williams

      Oh man im so glad i chose not to go with the CE in the end!

    • Jero

      Please kill me, you’re my only hope.

    • The framing of the photograph makes the size and texture of this figure suspiciously unclear… if you get my drift.

      (All I’m saying is, that face painting job reminds me of a very different kind of figure.)

    • hazelnut1112

      This is not sugoi in my desu.

    • Kitestwinblades

      Totally missing the nonchalant eye designs I love about Akihiko Yoshida art… Among other things… :<

    • koksuckaahh

      Almost as bad as “jashin” Kos-mos.

  • porkiewpyne

    I’m just hoping that the first game sells well enough over here in the West so this will be brought along too. :)

  • Samsara09

    faster then I imagined!Thought they would wait to see how the “for the sequel” sold…

    • Skyer Ist

      Why? For The Sequel is just a re-release w/some updates just like Kingdom Hearts Final Mixes or Final Fantasy Internationals. Re-release will not sell as good as original game. They enjoyed the success of original and now announced the sequel.

      • Samsara09

        weird.The west had no chance to play it.Could make a whole lot of a difference in total sells.Well,this just show how strong this game is…well,and now we will get to enjoy this little guy,

  • Skyer Ist

    OMG! Epic news!!!

  • kylehyde

    A leggy heroine has appeared and bravely default 2 along with her, this is a so happy day, please more Revo, the music of the first game is awesome

  • Her eyes look very strange.

  • Elemiel

    Hello white hair!~

  • s07195

    With a name as blatant about it as ‘For the Sequel’, who is surprised?

  • pekikuubik

    Yoshida draws the best thighs.

  • Start the localization now, please!

  • TheExile285


  • IshimaruKaito

    my body is ready

  • Huh. Nice design~.

    Can’t wait for the game (BD), and all the news on the sequel. ♥

  • Bigabu Beaze

    Anyone have the a picture of just the artwork on that scan? That guy’s art is always so good!

  • Slayven19

    I’m just waiting to play the game in a few months, don’t care about any sequel until then because I’ll be spoiled before playing the first game.

  • hazelnut1112

    Some of us still gotta wait until February for this..

  • Delicious thighs

  • Göran Isacson

    For the sequel indeed! Already planning and making it before the game has even dropped in the west… but I guess I can see why, if it sold so well in Japan. Now I just hope the western sales numbers mean we get a speedier localization.

  • Happy Gamer

    Hey guys please buy the games! Let’s get this one here too!!!

  • Kuromadou

    i really hope Yoshida still doing his role as a char designer, that Magnolia illustration seem like drawn by somebody other than Yoshida, but using his style to match up game’s art direction (but its probably i’m the only one who thinks like that)

  • Ric Vazquez

    Damn, and the first game has not even made it outside Japan yet….
