Bravely Default 2: What We Know
On March 26th, 2020 Square Enix announced Bravely Default 2 via the Nintendo Direct Mini conference on Nintendo’s YouTube channel.
Super excited fans can’t wait to get their hands on the latest installation of the series.
However, we have little information regarding the title since the March 26th announcement.
However, just last weekend on October 11h, in celebration of the titles 8th anniversary, the official Twitter account for the game posted a piece of fan art by artist Naoki Ikushima.
They also included a message stating that new information about the game will be available soon, so stay tuned!
The original game, Bravely Default: Flying Fairy as it is titled in Japan, released on October 11th, 2012 for the Nintendo 3DS.
The game released with opening weeks sales of 141,529 units, going on to sell a reported 1 million units worldwide by July 2014.
A second game, Bravely Second, followed up the original game. Building off of the previous installment, the games plot features the same band of heroes and perils.
The sequel sold less than the previous installment, and received critical reviews.
This means that Bravely Default 2 is in fact the 3rd game in the series. Since the community voiced concerns about Default Second being too similar to Bravely Default,
BD2 will take players on a whole new, unrelated adventure with a new cast.
Rated Moderate by the Australian Classification Board
Back on September 22nd, the game also received an M rating for Moderate by the Australian Classification Board.
The ACB has different ratings than North America, meaning an M rating is more like a T for Teen rating in North America.
While still not a sure fire indicator, all of this information sure makes it seem like we’ll be getting Bravely Default 2 sooner than later.
At least we can hope and dream. Nintendo is developing Bravely Default 2 for the Nintendo Switch.
