Are these the names of the next Bravely Default games?

The first sequel in the Bravely Default series could be called Bravely Second. And the next Bravely Third.

Square Enix recently filed tradmearks for “Bravely Second” and “Bravely Third” in Japan, suggesting they’re being considered for future developments in the Bravely Default series.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.

    Is Square Enix actively trying not to shit on their fanbase now? That’s a surprise.

    • Karysonson

      Why would you say that? Apparently the Bravely series is a new chain of ips much like kingdom hearts

        You’re right, I’ve spoken too quickly. They’ll find some way to ruin this, they always have.

        • Karysonson

          Yeah because SE is the worst company ever right?
          I swear….

          • adhesive

            No, Square Enix is the best company ever. They surely haven’t done anything wrong like constantly throw their fanbase under the bus by announcing iOS pay-to-win games and refusing to localize their best games.

            • Karysonson

              You mean like that one game Type-0? because if so the reason they didnt localize it was because of the psp being irrelevant in western teritories at the time.
              Anything other than that they didnt localize?

              • adhesive

                If it’s on a dedicated game system and its name isn’t Final Fantasy, you can expect Square Enix to put 0 effort into localizing the game.

                • Karysonson

                  Again, examples?

              • Heisst

                Dragon Quest Monsters, Dragon Quest 7, Rocket Slime 3, they not localizing Bravely Default themselves but needing Nintendo to do it, and why not port Type-0 to a system that’s alive like the Vita?

  • bloodiOS

    More like they’re just trademarking for the heck of it.

    • Anime10121

      Much like Type 1, Type 2, Type 3, etc. :(

  • Tac-Mex

    Not even surprised that they will milk this franchise now

    • Claude

      I’d rather they milked this than FF. I like what I’ve seen from Bravely Default.

    • Taedirk

      Eh, the devs said they’d love to put out a BD product of some sort once a year.

    • Zackasaur

      Milk? Get over yourself. You’re just milking your own input.

      They’ve stated a desire to make more for a very long time. Before the original was even finished, if I’m not mistaken.

    • Rogerrmark

      Well,isnt that exactly what the “oldschools” claiming FF was only worth until VI and VII,want? (I’m not one of them,btw)

      Oldschool RPGs?Random encounters? Villages and world maps?

      Why the anger then?

    • tubers

      Sure. If it makes sense from a business standpoint, why not.

      There’s a demand for it.

    There’s text in the Bravely Default logo that says SECOND.

    • kuroneko0509

      Whoa… never realized it :O

    • Sae-Won Yoon

      ….Well, Holy shit.

    • Anime10121

      Took me a minute to actually see what you were talking about, and hm, wonder what this means…

      • Zackasaur

        I think it’s pretty clear what it means. lol

        • Rogerrmark

          How so?I mean,For the sequel isnt just a upgraded version?I still think its kinda strange that Second there…wonder if the true sequel will have a Third written somewhere…or whatever

          • http://twitter.com/AuroraXIII AuroraXIII

            For the Sequel is in fact just an upgraded release. They’ve designed the logo to not only hint the sequel in its subtitle, but also in its main title.

            The real sequel will be called Bravely Second. And perhaps an upgraded version of that game will hint Bravely Third.

  • iam_yotbox

    Please? Haven’t played the game, but at least be a reason for more gorgeous art from Mr. Akihiko

  • Tristan Diaz

    Ohhh snaaaps.

  • Velton Ross

    Milk it dry Square, milk it dry.

    Oh by the way, FF lV The After Years is getting a 3D makeover!!…

    For iOS and Android…


    • JuhRo

      and by “3D” they mean the low budget nintendo-ware 3D that they’ve been trying to pull off since Crystal Chronicles… So no thanks.. It just lessens the quality of “Final Fantasy”. FF7 looks better than that and it’s almost 2 decades old.

  • Elvick

    Not sure I like that naming theme… but hey, I’m sure I’ll love the first game when it finally hits NA. So, I’m down for some sequels.
