Bravely Second

Bravely Second now has a final release date in North America. Previously slated for a vague “Spring 2016” window, the 3DS RPG will hit store shelves on April 15.

A collector’s edition was announced today – read about it here. You can also see what it looks like here.


Just like in Europe, North America will be receiving a collector’s edition for Bravely Second. This includes a 250-page art book plus a ten-song soundtrack. You’ll naturally get the game as well!


Last week, a Bravely Second demo was announced for Europe. Nintendo gave the same treatment to North American fans today, confirming that the download is planned for the states as well. This will be a 10-hour demo in which bonuses will carry over to the full game.


Nintendo has released a few new screenshots from Bravely Second. You can find them in the gallery below.

Nintendo of Europe just published some new info about Bravely Second: End Layer, the sequel to the acclaimed 3DS RPG Bravely Default: Where the Fairy Flies, which will be released in Europe on February 26th.

Most importantly, perhaps, is the fact that a demo for the game will be released on February 11th. Just like in Bravely Default, save data from the demo can be transferred over to the full game in order to unlock in-game bonuses.

Story-wise, the game will feature characters from the first game such as Magnolia, Edea and Tiz, but will also include several new playable characters. Among those are the “Three Cavaliers” – Yew Geneolgia, Janne Angard, and Nikolai Nikolanikov, who set out to rescue the kidnapped Agnès Oblige at the start of the game.

In terms of gameplay, the previous game’s Brave and Default system will also be available in Bravely Second. Be reckless and gain additional turns in combat now with Brave, or save them up for later with Default – the choice is yours. A new feature in Bravely Second lets you chain together multiple battles after winning one in a single turn – you can gain more experience and better rewards that way, but dying means you lose all your accumulated rewards.

As in Bravely Default, you have multiple Jobs at your disposal. These are basically your character’s classes, and you can freely assign any of them. Some return from Bravely Default and some are brand new, such as the baked goods-using Patissier or the feline-affine Catmancer.


Pre-orders for the Bravely Second: End Layer – Deluxe Collector’s Edition are now up on the Nintendo UK store. The item can be reserved right here. Orders cost £69.99 and will arrive on February 26.

Update (12/16): Bumped to the top. This went out of stock for a bit, but has now returned. Orders are back up!

Original (12/14): Pre-orders are now live for the Bravely Second Deluxe Collector’s Edition. If you’re in Europe, place an order here. The package comes with a copy of the game, soundtrack, Agnes figurine, and a 250-page art book.

Nintendo just announced the exact release date for Bravely Second in Europe: the game will launch on February 26th, 2016. You can buy both the standard and the special edition pictured above.


Rumor has it that Bravely Second’s western version will feature a change to one of the game’s classes. In the original Japanese edition, Square Enix included a Tomahawk class. But if the rumor is accurate, it’s now been replaced with the Cowboy class. The image above apparently gives us a look at the modification (the cowboy image seems to originate from a Spanish store).

Nintendo nor Square Enix has officially confirmed any class changes at this time. We’ll keep an eye out for any future developments about the rumor.
