The next “Bravely” game could head in one of two directions. Speaking with Japanese website Gamer, producer Tomoya Asano stated that the team is considering two options. The next Bravely game could be a another sequel, but it’s also possible that we’ll see a completely new title instead.

Asano and assistant producer Shinji Takahashi said:

“Hmm… yes, we’re currently thinking about whether a sequel would be more appropriate or if a completely new title would be more appropriate. This is currently a hot topic among [the development team].” – Asano

“We’re thinking about all kinds of things, like what kind of things are requested, and getting feedback from fans.” – Takahashi

Asano shared some other interesting information as well. When asked if Bravely Second will see something like Bravely Default: For the Sequel (re-release with fixes and additions), he noted that there are no plans. The team is only thinking about the western version of the game.

Also, there are currently no plans for additional scenarios through DLC. The only updates for Bravely Second will come in the form of standard patches.


Thus far, we’ve seen Bravely Default and Bravely Second. There’s no question that the series will continue, and producer Tomoya Asano is already thinking about a third entry.

Speaking with Famitsu this week, Asano said:

“I don’t know what to say about that at this time [with Bravely Second releasing soon] but I already have some ideas for Bravely Third in my head. If Bravely Second sells well, I plan on presenting plans for it right away. Thank you for your continued support.”

In a new interview with Dengeki, Bravely Second producer Tomoya Asano and assistant producer Shinji Takahashi discussed the game’s new jobs (thanks Siliconera). The title introduces jobs such as Cat Master, Patissier, Exorcist, and much more.

Asano first spoke about jobs with the following words:

“Whenever we start thinking about new jobs, we start out by keeping the entire game’s balance in mind. We’d like to have this many attackers; there should be this number of offensive mages; let’s stick to this number for healers… these are some of the thoughts that go into the balancing. One important thing of the Cat Master in particular is how we created it to be a ‘playing around’ type [of class].”

Asano added that although Cat Masters were originally created just to have fun with, they ended up being pretty strong. They’re fine at attacking and can provide support.
