Bravely Second solves Bravely Default problems

I enjoyed Bravely Default. I thought it had some excellent elements, even if the game did drag on for a bit too long and end up relying too much on grinding. However, the new game will take the best the first on had to offer, and expand on it in cool new ways.

Siliconera is reporting some cool new details about Bravely Second. For example, it will have a similar town-building mini-game as the first game, but this time on the moon. Like the previous game, growing the town will go faster if you StreetPass other people to help, and will help you get powerful items, equipment and skills.

Other news includes a new feature, “Consecutive Chance”. When you defeat all the enemies in one turn, you’ll get another chance to fight for an extra 1.5 times the reward. The more you activate Consecutive Chance, the greater the rewards, but of course you’ll have to be careful – your BP will remain the same so it might be rather tough as the enemies get harder.

Most exciting to me is the feature called “My Set” this

allows you to create a list of your characters and have it save what jobs they’re using, along with their commands, abilities, and equipment. Making it much easier to have various setups with all the jobs out there.

This is what I wanted so very desperately. I generally defaulted to the same party composition, but if I wanted to change one it meant changing everyone to keep the balance going. This way, I could pre balance a range of options and then chop and change between them. Sounds good to me.

    As long as this game doesnt do what the original did with the second half of the story…you know what I’m talking about. That honestly held the game back from being a classic.

      well it wasn’t the best design choice, but it made some sense in terms of the story (didn’t even take long to get through unless you are the completionist type that has to do every side battle).

      On that note though, i doubt it’ll happen again as they would have to recycle a lot of the plot to put it back in.

        Oh well true I understand…it made sense but it just wasnt justifiable imo. I think it was 4 loops rights?….it was just a bit too much. Doing the same thing so many times

          personally, i didn’t mind too much.
          The first 2 loops were a little boring, but the change ups later on were a lot of fun and gave interesting interactions with many of the characters like the Eternain Board of Girl Power.
          the actual required fights were pretty easy to just breeze through thanks to encounter rate options (although it was probably a nightmare for those in Japan playing the original version).

            I found the same dialogue being used most of the time is annoying. They came to different world but still talking like they have been there first time. Other than that, its amazing game. Fabulous graphic, one of the best soundtrack there is. I still listen to their soundtrack every now and then. Cant wait for bravely second!

            well iirc the first loop was pretty much identical, the second had some with slight changes, but the 3rd/4th were very different.

    That alt-text… even after reading it I still took ~12 seconds to figure out what it could be other than her knee.
