First Bravely Second Footage Plays Magnolia Dress-Up

Bravely Second livestream shows off job classes and a new location!

Bravely Second

 

Bravely Default may have only seen its worldwide release this year, but the 3DS RPG has had enough time in Japan for work to be well underway on the sequel. Bravely Second stars new main character Magnolia, seen above, who fans of the original may remember from Bravely Default‘s special ending. Now Magnolia takes the stage herself, in the first in-game footage of our return to a world of crystals, Vestals, and darkness.

The following footage was captured from a Square Enix livestream by NintendoEverything. The videos are set in a brand-new location called Istantal, a city known for its university of magic. Here, professors are trying to find a new approach to the arcana of magic, the consequences of which could wind up influencing the story of Bravely Second quite heavily indeed.

One of the best things about Bravely Default, to hopefully be replicated in its sequel, was the inclusion of a stellar job system. Here, we get a visual look at a few of Bravely Second‘s job classes, as modeled by Magnolia herself. Classes shown include the Time Mage, Red Mage, Valkyrie and Superstar. None of these classes are new to Bravely Second, but notable is the number of job slots visible in the video; 30, as compared to Bravely Default‘s 24. What those new six jobs will be remains to be seen, but at the same time, it’s nice to see some favorite classics from Default making a return.

News about Bravely Second  has been coming at little more than a trickle, but supposedly the game will be playable at Japan’s upcoming Tokyo Game Show event. Hopefully this will mean a proper trailer, with an idea of what we can expect from the story of Bravely Second, and what changes may have come to its world. A release date could even be in store, at least for Japan. Here’s hoping Bravely Second makes it to the US and Europe a bit faster than Bravely Default did.
