Bravely Default has a four minute trailer for Bravely Second

First look at new character Magnolia Arch in action.

After the end credits roll in Bravely Default—the recently released English version, at least (and probably For the Sequel, as well)—you’ll catch a first glimpse at Bravely Second.

Spanish games site Deculture caught wind of the trailer, which features new character Magnolia Arch, and recorded it. Given it’s from the English version of Bravely Default, the dialogue is in English, as well.

Watch it below.

Thanks, @chibisake.

    This pleases me. I guess we can assume that Bravely Second is all but confirmed for a western release.

    • Pyrofrost

      I sure as hell hope so.
      I really hope I don’t end up investing my time in a game that is getting a sequel continuing the story, only to find out the sequel won’t be localized.
      That’s bothersome as hell when dealing with a system that’s region locked.

      • $83030187

        Well, with a video like this in the game, you pretty much have to release the sequel outside of Japan.

        I couldn’t imagine the backlash if SE or Nintendo or whoever just decided to go all loljk

        • Pyrofrost

          Lol, it seems people are logging in just to down-vote everyone in the comments (either that or bots). No one has even said anything to disagree with. xD

          On topic though, I will remain optimistic.

          • Budgiecat

            Why so many downvotin’ cowards?

            • Samsara09

              bunch of vermin.This is annoying.If someone doesn’t like this,get lost.No need to waste time here.Well,wasn’t that trailer just epic?

              • LordKaiser

                People don’t mind the down votes. It means nothing as the system is broken regardless. unregistered up voters and unnamed down-voters. Pay
                no attention.

                • Claude

                  I don’t think anyone is really bothered…I’m just curious why this video angered someone enough to produce those downvotes.

                  • LordKaiser

                    Trolls or handheld haters. I myself prefer consoles over handhelds and play on the big screen and my comfortable chair but I had no choice if I wanted to play Bravely Default and a Link between worlds.

          • Samsara09

            well,who knows.Maybe the localization will be closer this time!I don’t want to wait a year again.

        • Heisst

          hue

          • $83030187

            Yeah, but Yakuza games sell terribly in the west. You’ve just got an incrediblely vocal fan base.

            • Pyrofrost

              Actually, Yakuza is pretty successful here in the West (post Y2). Nagoshi went on record to say the only reason 5 isn’t getting localized is due to lack of man-power and deadlines for Ishin.

              • $83030187

                I’d say that Sega should release Y5 digitally on PSN, but is the Yakuza fanbase the kind that would accept a digital-only game?

                I know a lot of niche audiences refuse to buy a game unless there is a physical copy.

                • Pyrofrost

                  Yeah, a lot of people (especially niche audiences) refuse to buy a game unless it sees a physical release.
                  As far as the Yakuza audience goes, I can’t say how well they would receive it. XSeed for example, had to pretty much force their audience into accepting it.

                  The biggest thing about Yakuza 5 is its size in comparison to any of the others, and the amount of translation that would need to be done. As someone who has played and beat it, I would honestly argue that 5 is bigger than 3 and 4 combined.

                  It still may have a chance at some point though. Nagoshi didn’t say no; he simply said there were no plans at this time. If they did, this is definitely one of the series I would be happy to double-dip on.

                  • $83030187

                    Well, you’ve got a lot of people who assume that because they don’t dub the games anymore, than translation should just be a quick, easy and cheap process.

                    Many Yakuza fans look at how Sega is localizing the Project Diva games now and get furious (I have been called a pedophile a few times).

                    Where as the Diva games require only menu translation, I’ve heard that Yakuza games have MASSIVE amounts of text.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      Many people just don’t have prospective for shit, and people calling you a pedo for liking PD is ridiculous. What can I say, the gamer community will be the gamer community

                      A dub for a game can be done in a few days, up to a couple of weeks. It’s one of the easiest parts of the process. The hard part is translating the text.
                      I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen Tom (from XSeed) have to provide people with the same explanation time and time and time again, all over the internet. People just don’t get for some reason.

            • Heisst

              IIRC only Dead Souls sold bad in the west (because it sucked ass) and that’s why they’re not bringing 5.

              • Pyrofrost

                That’s not quite the case.
                (Though whether or not Of the End was good or bad is another debate, I loved it).

                *points to my reply to Xaltmas*

              • Budgiecat

                Bravely Default sells so amazingly in the West..

                Just like Dragon Quest X and DQ VII Remake in the West since DQ IX sold over 1 million in U.S. alone, sealing in those two games to be localized…

                …eh..er…wait…

                • $83030187

                  Bravely Default just came out in Europe and won’t hit the west for another few months. No one knows how it’s going to do.

                  As for Dragon Quest, I’d chalk that up to be a combination of the DS versions of V and VI tanking, plus Square Enix being completely fucking inept.

                  • Pyrofrost

                    That pisses me off too.
                    I have the PS1 copy of DQVII, but I was really hoping for the 3DS version.

                    • $83030187

                      I honestly couldn’t give two shits about the MMO, but not getting DQVII is disappointing.

                      I mean, didn’t they translate the game before for PS1? You’d think that would make things easier.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      Indeed it would, though they would probably want to update the translations like they did for IV, V, and VI.

                      Well for IV, I don’t know if V and VI saw light of day here till the DS.

  • Samsara09

    lookie here.Those 4 peoples have found two more trash to join them in the heap.Ah well.Can’t anyone deal with this?it is unsightly.
    Well,this trailer was epic.”Bonjour,Tiz”.Tiz,my man,why are you always in trouble…and why are you alwys alongside a hottie?

  • bloodiOS

    Hint for a simultaneous worldwide release?

    • Pyrofrost

      Ermahgawd!

      No, seriously, that would be awesome.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Unlikely. This is SE after all.

    • Sae-Won Yoon

      It’s possible at least.

  • AnimusVox

    The fuck is up with the downvoting lately?

    • Pyrofrost

      I really think there are bots or something. When I was first posting down there, I watched them tick up to 5 almost immediately. That doesn’t happen unless someone comes on here being a complete fucking asshole.

      • HeatPhoenix

        5 someones!!

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    I think somebody needs to teach the guy how to hold a camera… it was swinging all over the place.

  • Kuma Kabo

    Great. Now they’re advertising inside of their games. That’s what *I* pay $40 for, I don’t know about you.

    • Sae-Won Yoon

      Kingdom Hearts called, they say calm the fuck down.
