Bravely Second revealed in this week's Jump.

This week’s Jump reveals Bravely Second, a sequel to Bravely Default, for 3DS.

Bravely Second is set in the same world as the original game. Players will embark once again on a great adventure of swords and magic.

Jump introduces Magnolia, a new silver-haired character “clad in the moon.”

A release date was not announced.

Thanks, @kazu4281.

    This is winning.

    Makes me feel better about the horribleness of FFVI on mobile.

    Square Enix, more of this and less of that.

    • Guest

      What’s wrong with VI being on mobile? It’s become a lot more accessible now to those who’ve been unable to play it.

      • adhesive

        Their mobile games are generally bad ports, and chances are most mobile players aren’t really interested in the first place(especially at their extortionate prices), otherwise they would’ve played them on another system by now.

      • Elvick

        Nothing to do with it being on mobile. It has to do with them forgoing a remake like PSP (and DS, even if I hate those) and “remaking” it straight on mobile.

        In the process making some of the worst looking sprites ever created. FFV suffered the same fate.

        There’s no reason as to why they couldn’t remake it on 3DS or PS Vita (or both) and then port that to mobile.

        But they “re”made it on mobile and it looks like fucking garbage.

      Square Enix loves mobile, it will never stop.

    Great news.
    Can’t wait to play the first one!

  • British_Otaku

    Isn’t “Bravely Second” already a mechanic in the international version/For The Sequel of the first game? I mean, I’m hyped but more silly names for their games?

    I’ll get the international version later this month if possible, got a backlog.

    EDIT: Turns out they trademarked Bravely Third as well a few months ago on top of Bravely Second being a mechanic in the December 2013/February 2014 release. Source: http://gematsu.com/2013/09/square-enix-trademarks-bravely-second-bravely-third

    Square Enix never changes, they always loved announcing sequels. :P

    • D-Omen

      Yeah, it’s the thing that uses Sleep points to freeze enemies, I believe. If it’s a main mechanic in the sequel, hopefully they make it easier to obtain, since in the first game it requires to put the 3DS in sleep mode.

    • Rogerrmark

      Hopefully,Third will become a game one day as well. :P

      I’m totaly in for more RPGs with Jobs and wonderfull pre-render scenario,yay.

    • Samsara09

      Well,as long as the game is good,I could care less if it is a sequel…or not.Besides,would you miss a chance to play a good game just because it is a sequel?No,right?

      • British_Otaku

        I don’t have a problem with sequels at all, but when they are iterative, poorly executed or based on a prior title that I haven’t played, I would give that a miss.

        Also, I wouldn’t mind SE or other publishers giving other series a second or third breath of life…

  • TheExile285

    Woot!

    I already like Magnolia~

  • ragingmerifes

    Meanwhile, in America…

    “Guise, why can’t we have a demo at least?”

    • British_Otaku

      They want to release a demo closer to release probably, putting out a demo months in advance of the release doesn’t do them any favours when you are more likely to have the game in mind if the demo comes out when the marketing is on full blast.

  • Hatsuaki

    Just hoping we get this one as well. I love the new character.

  • Astrid Huang

    OMG this news made my day!
    Bravely default is one of the reasons why I bought a 3DS.. and to know a sequel is coming is just awesome!

  • perrandy

    dunno how good the first one is but i’d say that this is good news.hope that the first game is good and that will fare good here in the west.love to see the 3ds gaining more rpgs

  • $83030187

    Good shit.

    Can’t wait for the original to hit the states. Something about this series reminds me of a better time of JRPGs.

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    More or less a given.

    But still, cool if it means more job classes

  • Zechs

    Awesome! :D

      I’m compelled to reply to you, seeing as you’ve got a picture of my lovely self as your avatar xD! (I also agree that this announcement is awesome for relevancy sake)

  • Samsara09

    Consider youself mine,my pretty bravely.

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    Great it is finally official.

  • artemisthemp

    Could their be a save bonus in Bravely Second?

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Possibly, I don’t see any reason there couldn’t be, though is it likely?

      • Zechs

        Could happen! If you complete certain objectives in the BD demo, you unlock some rewards for the actual game. :P

  • Erick Jahzeel Maradiaga Mairen

    yuna with long hair? look at the image of final fantasy 10 remake

  • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

    Ah, so my 3DS will continue to be fed, this pleases me. It’s really starting to feel like last generation handheld wise.

    • Elvick

      Not even close to DS and PSP. :/

      loldownvotes, if you think 3DS is anywhere near the DS and PSP in library you’re an imbecile. You can thank limited 3rd party support for that.

      • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

        I’m more talking in terms of having content to play on both platforms, as I did last gen. Though I can admit that I’m still expecting more of a powerful push software wise on Vita.

        • Elvick

          That’s a useless comparison then.

          • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

            Is it? If you’re feeling as if you’ll gain the same satisfaction you did in the previous gen, I’d imagine that’s a good thing to reach at. It’d be one thing if you felt otherwise and backed that up (now that you know the correct context).

  • Pyrofrost

    All righty, I can call this good news :3
    Hopefully the first will do well enough to justify localization.

  • 1Truth

    Glad to see Akihiko Yoshida is getting more work besides FFXIV ARR. I hope Hiroyuki Ito chooses him as character designer for FFXVI.

    • Anime10121

      I hope Hiroyuki Ito is the director of FFXVI!

      • 1Truth

        Yes. It really needs to happen. In the same way Kitase/Toriyama always use Nomura on their mainline FF games, Ito should always use Yoshida.
