Square Enix revealed a new character and job classes for Bravely Second at Jump Festa in Chiba today.
Minette Goroneze (voiced by Misaki Kuno) is an Asterisk Holder and “Cat User” job class, which specializes in brass knuckles and axes. These are some of the class’ known abilities:
- Cat High Arts: Takes two items to summon a pair of cats to pull off powerful moves. At Jump Festa, it was shown in a demo as used to raise everybody’s BP by one, but has been deemed too powerful by the development team and will be re-balanced accordingly. What cats appear depend on items used. When “Death Spiral,” a move that hits several times, was used, the two cats were gray and brown, and a doodle of a cat appeared above the character that summoned them (apparently drawn by designer using their non-writing hand). Items used to summon cats are acquired through moon reconstruction.
- Cat Arts: Following moves confirmed: “Consume,” “Slugger,” “White Window,” and “Book Burning.” These only take one item to summon a cat to do.
- Nenneko: Makes all enemies fall asleep.
- Lie Down: Raises physical and magic defense.
- Dig: Not clarified.
Also revealed was the “Astrologist” class, which can be seen on the right side of the second picture at the top of the article. Virtually nothing is known about the class, save for the fact that its representative Asterisk Holder is a mysterious “elderly fortune teller” (and reminds us of Zeus).
Bravely Second is due out for 3DS in Japan on April 23.
