It was thanks to the success of the mobile game that Bravely Default 2 got the green light and began with the development.
Bravely Default 2's Story
In a news article from Gaming Bolt, the developers Tomoya Asano and Masashi Takahashi decided to call it Bravely Default 2 is because this game will be an entirely different story with a bunch of whole new characters that will take place in a whole new world, despite being the third game in the franchise.
This game is also said to be different from the rest in terms of its tone and style as it will not only feature more adult characters, but will also have a more mature story.
Asano and Takahasi also shared about the possibility of adding an online feature of the game which they expect fans to look forward to in the game's release. For now, you can check out the video below.
