Meet Magnolia Arch, the Devil King Buster.

Square Enix has shared first details and screenshots for Bravely Second.

The game, announced in the latest issue of Jump magazine, is coming to 3DS in Japan on a still to be announced date. Its official website is accessible here.

Find the new information below.

Setting

The story’s stage is Luxendarc. It is set in the world several years after the Warriors of Light saved it from crisis.

Magic University Town Istantarl

This university town was built in the Nadarakes continent under the proposal of the Lakrika prime minister. Scholars and students around the world gather here every day, exchanging discussions about all sorts of intellectual topics. Because it prospers particularly in the study of magic, it is known by the nickname “Magic University Town.” Thanks to the help of professors, a new structure of magic has been developed, different from the traditional method.

New Character: Devil King Buster Magnolia Arch

A mysterious woman who calls herself the “Devil Buster who came from the moon.” Her age is unknown, she appears in unexpected places at unexpected times, and she has a daredevil attitude. According to the Devil King who suddenly appeared, she is the last survivor of the moon nation.

She is a sociable eccentric. Delicate, but largehearted. Realistically, a romanticist. An elegant beauty with elusive characteristics, only one thing is certain, she has fierce fighting skills and rescued Tiz Oria.

Bravely Second will also be at Jump Festa, which runs from December 21 to 22. It won’t be playable, unfortunately, but there will be a trailer.

        And those legs…

        Never mind.

    Dem thighs.

    I hope enough people buy Bravely Default so we don’t have worry about whether or not future entries get localized. These are some of the most appealing JRPGs I have seen in ages, and I’d like for them to be successful in the west as well as Japan.

    • Pyrofrost

      Me too.
      I really hope this turns into a successful franchise in the West.

    Here’s hoping they get rid of random battles.

    I wonder if the first game is any good, looking forward to trying it out, looks very promising. I like the gothic vibe this promo pic has!

  • Kobracon

    Oooh thats a really nice picture.

  • Samsara09

    “rescued Tiz”.Well…she sounds like an protagonist….Hmmm…well,I am pumped.

    New character is quite appealing, eccentric people with random appearances for the win!

    Damn, what is with all the downvoting?

      Someone’s obviously spamming them. Just ignore it — DVs have no meaning without an actual response. It’d be nice if Disqus let us turn them off.

    • Samsara09

      I don’t know who makes a sport of this.Must be someone without life or friends.What a waste.Looks like there are four of them.

    Loved the first game and can’t wait to play this. I only wish Vita was getting quality RPG titles like this. P4 Golden was awesome, but that’s it. Most of the other titles are mediocre are best. Its sad, that the Vita’s best RPG is a remake of a old PS2 title.

    • Elvick

      I wish SE had invested in a new IP for Vita as well.

      But, 3DS is lucky it even got this game. SE’s handheld output is terrible now. Such a shame.
