Bravely Second will see new characters and familiar faces, but it looks like the game’s development team is also seeing a few changes.
Yesterday, we reported that Revo, the composer for the first game, will not be contributing to Bravely Second due to scheduling issues, and taking his place is Supercell’s ryo. Meanwhile, Famitsu magazine reports that the game has a new team of writers as well. [Thanks, Hokanko-Alt.]
In the case of Bravely Default, the game’s story was handled by Naotaka Hayashi, who is also known for writing 5pb’s Steins;Gate. However, Hayashi is not involved in Bravely Second, and instead, the game has a team of multiple writers.
Producer Tomoya Asano and assistant producer Shinji Takahashi will work on Bravely Second’s scenario, according to Famitsu.
Meanwhile, director Kensuke Nakahara and Bravely Default lead scenario planner Keiichi Ajiro (both from Silicon Studio), alongside Souki Tsukishima, who wrote the light novel series for the game, will all be working on the scenario for the game as well.
Bravely Second is currently in development for Nintendo 3DS.
Update: Famitsu have shared two new screens of the game on their website, which have been included in this post.
