With a little over two months to go now until its Japanese release for Bravely Second, Square Enix has put out a new press release, revealing a new job, a new Asterisk Holder, and status updates on old ones, as well. Catch our abridged translation that focuses squarely on actual new content below.
New Job: Guardian
An offense-oriented job that focuses on manipulating spiritual power to unleash powerful attacks and buffs. Rumor has it that Guardians are even capable of using abilities held by other people….
New Exorcist Asterisk Holder: Bloody Geist
Bloody Geist is an Exorcist Asterisk Holder who serves the Grantz Empire and Emperor Oblivion. His age, origin, even his real name are all shrouded in mystery. He’s especially gifted at using his “Undo” skill, which reverts things to what they were previously. In practice this means he’s capable of literally undoing things that have taken place within the last several turns such as damage taken from enemies and consumed MP. Even if he severely and visibly injures someone, he can erase their memories of when they actually got hurt, leaving them just with their wounds. Unable to stop himself from hurting others, his sanity has been wrought asunder, constantly in a state of mental anguish and seeking an end to his life.
White Mage Asterisk Holder: Holly White
Holly is the sole woman among the ranks of Eternia’s Sky Knights. A spirited woman with qualities akin to that of an older sister, in the previous game, she, alongside her partner Barras, faced down Tiz. This time around, she seems to find herself facing off against Erutus Profiteur over an abandoned seaside house, though there may well be more to it than that.
Thief Asterisk Holder: Jackal
Jackal is the young head of a band of thieves who hole themselves up inside the Harena Ruins. In the previous game, he stole from others on orders from Erutus Profiteur and caused trouble for those who came out to the oasis, but now he’s reformed himself and created a group that self polices desert activity.
Merchant Asteris Holder: Erutus Profiteur
Erutus is the former head of the once Ancheim-based Khamer & Profiteur Merchantry. An man who cares about little more than the money he makes, he disappeared after the antics of Tiz and her crew resulted in the destruction of his company, but he seemingly now has his eyes set on the Eisen region.
Bravely Second is set to release in Japan for 3DS on April 23. You can catch a gallery of new screenshots and artwork here.
