Bravely Default Lets Japanese Players Transfer Save Data To For the Sequel

By Eugene . December 5, 2013 . 5:30pm

If you’re a Japanese owner of Bravely Default, you’ll be able to transfer your save data from it to Bravely Default: For the Sequel, allowing you to carry your level, job, job level, money, items, special moves, friends and more over to the new game. The Square Enix members site explains the process.



First, you’ll need to have a Square Enix member ID and then boot up the original game. There, head to the Member section and upload it for a password.



So far, so good? Now you’ll want to swap cartridges and boot up For the Sequel and start a new game. When prompted, say you’d like to import your data and the game will prompt for your Square Enix ID and password.



You’ll then be able to transfer over selected data you can choose from—such as character names, levels, job and job levels, money and items. Then, off you go! Easy right?


Bravely Default is out this week December 6 in Europe, and next February 7 2014 for the rest of us. Since Square Enix are allowing owners of Bravely Default transfer their data over to For the Sequel, perhaps they’ll do the same with Bravely Second, and even throw in a few bonuses.

    I thought they can actually upgrade standard Bravely Default with a 29.000 yen DLC to become For the Sequel?
    Anyways, it’s a nice touch for physical game owners.

    • Are you saying twenty-nine thousand Yen?! For a DLC upgrade?

      • GH56734

        lol, probably meant 2.900 yen.
        That’s more like a console price tag :P
        I’m sorry

        • That’s alright. I was WTF-ing in my mind when I read that. :D

      Yeah it’s possible. Took me a while to figure out, but you have to go to the Japanese For the Sequel-site and scan the QR code there to be able to update through the e-shop. >_>’;

    … For a while there I thought that they meant you could transfer save data from the first Bravely default to the SECOND game. Ha ha, I was all “oh man the second game will have transferable data? what will it be, are they trying to follow Mass Effect or something” and then I read a bit more. Consider me sufficiently tempered.

      That wouldn’t be so surprising.

    For a second there I thought the title of this article just had bad grammar. XD
