The major news at this year’s Game Awards for Nintendo fans was the reveal of Bravely Default II on the Switch. According to Square Enix, it’s a successor to the original 3DS outing, even if Bravely Second: End Layer already exists.
In case you missed the news the first time around, this second entry (which is technically the third) in the series, is being produced by Team Asano (Bravely Default / Octopath Traveler) and includes music by Revo (the composer of Bravely Default).
Following the official trailer release at the annual awards show, Tomoya Asano himself took to Twitter with the following message (thanks for the translations, Siliconera):
We finally were able to announce it! For those who’ve been waiting all this time, I apologize, and I’d like to thank you. People reacted so loudly that all our staff are pumped up to work on this game.
And Revo shared a message on Nintendo’s Japanese website after the big reveal:
To all fans, I’m back. I’m happy to be able to participate in this hakoniwa-style world again.
The graphics have kept that sort of warm, hand-crafted look, but in even beautiful graphics. For the music, in order to better represent the atmosphere, I’m tackling this task with all my courage.
The music used in the teaser trailer was grand orchestral music, but there are also band-style musical pieces that charges forward passionately, intricate traditional-sounding music pieces, and a wide range of music that may sound nostalgic, but also fresh at the same time.
I can only say that I hope you can play the game as soon as possible. Please look forward to it!
Bravely Default II will be exclusively released on the Nintendo Switch in 2020. Are you looking forward to this one? Did you play the first two games? Comment down below.
