The Nintendo Switch is considered as the home of RPGs currently because of the console’s extensive selection of titles from the genre. One of the most exciting ones to come is Bravely Default 2, the sequel to a Nintendo 3DS classic.
Although Nintendo is yet to reveal new major details about Bravely Default 2, they try to help fans get by with some new and exciting information. Those who haven’t played Bravely Default and Bravely Second will not have to catch up to the story anymore, at least according to new details about the game.
A fresh start
The upcoming game isn’t a direct sequel of the 3DS games. However, it is worth noting that Bravely Default and Bravely Second are directly connected, which explains why some players are wondering if the story of the new game picks up after the events of its predecessors.
According to new details, the upcoming game will offer a fresh start to the series. It will feature more mature characters and a more mature storyline as well. This basically means that to enjoy Bravely Default 2, players need not to have played the 3DS predecessors.
The decision was made to ensure that the game is able to invite new players while attracting older audiences as well. In fact, the game’s protagonists are in their 20s except for a character named Elvis, who’s 35. In the 3DS games, Tiz and his allies are younger than 20.
Online features not out of the way
When asked about whether or not the game will have online features, the developers said that they aren’t saying no. This basically means that they could be working on potential online features to the game, but it will be exciting to see how this could work if and when the developers decide to add online mechanics.
In the first games, the players were able to rebuild a village of their own. Through StreetPass, players can see the village of others and even send them strong enemies called Nemesis. This feature might return in some form in the upcoming Nintendo Switch game.
Bravely Default 2 doesn’t have a release date yet, but it will launch exclusively for the Switch. It’s going to be a solid RPG experience featuring a unique combat system, multiple jobs for the protagonists, and a beautiful art style, which has always been one of the main attractions of the previous games.
