Not quite a sequel, but it's For the Sequel.

Square Enix confirmed Bravely Default: For the Sequel, a not-quite sequel to last year’s Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, in the latest issue of Weekly Jump.

The game appears to be an evolution of the first game with added elements to garner interest in a sequel. It will have new events, reformed controls, an auto-battle mode, and a quad-speed battle option. There are now three save spots and players can select a difficulty level. It can also use data from the original game.

Bravely Default: For the Sequel will launch on December 5 in Japan for 4,990 yen at retail and 2,900 yen via digital download.

Thanks, Re: Gigen.

    Hmm… you would think this will be the version we receive in the west, with all these extra features (minus the subtitle). Knowing this exists, I’ll be disappointed if the additions aren’t put into the western version.

      Remember that BD was going to be released in Europe this year but they delayed the game. That could means that S-E is going to release this version in the west.

      • Azuardo

        So the delay to 2014 for Europe is definitely true? I know Nintendo’s recent forecast had it changed to 2014, but the BDFF official twitter then said it’s still 2013. But I would assume Nintendo’s date is correct since they’re publishing. But you’re right, the delay to 2014 could be because of this updated version.

        EDIT: Well! Looks like Nintendo has reconfirmed that BD is still due in 2013 for Europe! I hope we’re still gonna get these additions…

    I wonder if the English release will be this version.

    My Bravely Default hype is back full swing again :| so far away!

    I recall SE do like “Final Mix”.

    • Hidayat246

      wow…. that……….

    • Anime10121

      Final mixes, International versions, and now, For the Sequels.

  • Zackasaur

    Damn. I want this, but I doubt it’s something we’ll be playing in the west. We’ll probably just have the original version.

    Still, I have the original version pre-ordered. :3

  • new_tradition

    I’m mainly interested in the new events. if its too late to receive this version over the original when it releases in 2014, I hope there’s a way for us to DL the new events off the eShop (hopefully for free) or something. I guess its up to Nintendo now…

    • Zero

      Agreed. This sounds like something I could work with. If the version we get isn’t the updated version.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Hah. Guess I’ll sell my copy and get this one instead. Forget the english release

  • DinoTurtle

    Why not just make the sequel in the first place?

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    >For the Sequel, a not-quite sequel??

    Imagine if they pulled a Capcom and made it a physical release

  • PrinceHeir

    they need to bring this version!!
