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.
