Bravely Second Gets A Second Teaser Trailer At Jump Festa

By Ishaan . December 20, 2013 . 9:50pm

Square Enix have shared another teaser for Bravely Second at Jump Festa 2014 (thanks, Game Jouhou). This one actually isn’t much of a trailer at all—just an illustration of the game’s magic academy and a few clips of Magnolia in battle.



In case you missed it, you can watch the original trailer for Bravely Second here. It plays after the end credits of Bravely Default. The game is currently in development for the Nintendo 3DS and has no release date.

    On one hand, I have little doubt that making the revised rerelease of Bravely Default has delayed the development of the sequel. But on the other hand, the second edition of Bravely Default is a test bed for Bravely Second concepts, right? So in theory even though Famitsu reported recently that Bravely Second is only 30% complete, development should run more quickly than usual because of the data they collect over these next months.

    I remember when Bravely Default first released there was a giant survey the director shared asking players for input on a wide variety of topics. Most games look to collect similar data, but they just track it straight off of the games themselves. It makes me wonder if Bravely Default won’t implement some form of player tracking – seems much more efficient than all these demos and surveys.

      still, it’s a really nice gesture by the developers, trying to get information of what their fans like.

      if it weren’t for the demos, the game wouldn’t have been as fluid originally, and then as perfected for the enhanced version.

      I kind of wish more of SE took that approach, at least in terms of reaching out to their community.

    I liked the music and illustrations. That’s alI can really say, lol.

    Thought it’s making the wait for the NA release a little more painful. It hurts oh so good ♥

    It may have just been me (after all I have yet to play the original) but the graphics we saw in those very short clips looked much better than BD’s. Magnolia’s model looked very smooth and crisp compared to the jaggedy models I’ve seen in trailers for BD. I’m not bashing on the original’s graphics, I’m just saying these looked noticeably better and I’m surprised.

    • Pockystix

      they’ve had time to get really used to the 3DS’ architecture, so I imagine Bravely Second and (eventually) Third will look great.

        Jesus, what did you two say to get >150 downvotes each? This is bizarre.

        • xAtKx

          Maybe a certain downvoting group from last week have returned.

    • Aaron K Stone

      I wouldn’t be surprised if those were pre rendered or higher poly models just used for cutscenes.

  • Pockystix

    and that music is still going to be good

    nice to know lol

  • kylehyde

    shorter than I expected and still awesome. The best part is that maybe we are going to have Revo again

    • Neophoton

      An interview back in October confirmed he’ll be returning for B2nd.

      The music sounds very much his style, anyway~

  • Neophoton

    Was surprised it’s not the same teaser from the end of BDFS. At least I know where that track from the TGS trailer earlier this year is going to be put to use for.

    …Also, I do believe said track is included in the drama CD releasing in a few days, according to the track list.

    Two words, GIGA HYPED!

  • Micrologos

    I’m just hoping that being named after the pay to win/sleep to win mechanic from For the Sequel doesn’t mean Bravely Seconding is going to be made absolutely essential to progressing on a non-frustrating manner in the sequel. Having the game built even more tightly around waiting eight or more hours or shelling out on a microtransaction for some SP doesn’t sound conducive to a fun gameplay experience.

      They’re not going to base the game around it. Imagine the backlash. Square are not that stupid. They’re not clever. But they’re not THAT stupid.

    • But who said SP was even required to play the game?

      • Tienron

        i agree it wasn’t even essential that you use it so i dont understand the problem if sqaure want to have it as an option for people let them have stop complaining it’s not hurting anyone.
