Akihiko Yoshida Working On Next Bravely Default Says Yasumi Matsuno


Yasumi Matsuno of Tactics Ogre fame recently tweeted that he was meeting with Bravely Default illustrator Akihiko Yoshida for drinks. In a follow-up tweet, Matsuno jokingly added that Yoshida would not be discussing Final Fantasy XIV, on which he is working.


In reply to this tweet, another artist, Misato Mitsumi, questioned what Matsuno was working on, aside from Final Fantasy XIV. To this, Matsuno replied that Yoshida is at work on the next Bravely Default project.


This isn’t the first time a new Bravely Default game has been hinted at. The game’s producer Tomoya Asano has personally hinted at a sequel multiple times, and was at one point even collecting user feedback for a future Bravely Default game.


While Japan might be seeing a sequel to Bravely Default in the future, North America and Europe will be seeing the first game in 2014 and 2013 respectively.
