Akihiko Yoshida

Bravely Second is still a long ways off, but producer Tomoya Asano and designer Akihiko Yoshida have been regularly talking with Japanese outlets about the upcoming 3DS game.

In a new interview with Famitsu, Yoshida said that the game will include enhanced graphics compared to Bravely Default. He said:

Basically the [battle] system does not change but the graphics are better than in the previous game. It’s possible to fill a dense background with thicker lines and strike a balance between the two. In the previous game, we felt the resolution was too low when zooming in. But this time, the denser background and camera zoom in does not affect quality, and unlike the previous game I don’t feel that [Bravely Second] falls apart when the camera is closer.
