During a special Bravely Second stream hosted by Dengeki, Square Enix revealed the newest job in the game: the Exorcist, which can go back several turns when things get sour.
In the demonstration, they showed the four party members playing as the Exorcist job, which has the ability to turn back time with an ability called “Undo”. When you use the ability, it can go back up to three turns. For example, they showed Nikolai taking some damage, and Magnolia used the “Undo HP” and it reverted his health back to what it was before he took damage.
This ability can also work when players get incapacitated, so it’s considered more of a healing class. Since you can use it on other characters, it’ll come in handy, as they’ll be able to charge up with Defaults while always keeping their health the way it was.
The cost for Undo skills are relatively low, so you won’t have to worry about saving it for only crucial moments. The job will have various other uses for its abilities, which will be revealed in the near future.
During the stream, Square also shared a look at what appeared to be the Asterisk Holder for the Exorcist job. He’s a pretty creepy character, and was shown taking a slash attack, only to have it recover, as if it never even happened.

Square Enix also revealed that Bravely Second will have about 30 jobs total. The game will release in Japan on April 23, 2015 for Nintendo 3DS
