Additional details on Bravely Second straight from Square Enix

Gematsu has the scoop

The latest Jump article introduced some additional tidbits about Bravely Second, but now Square Enix has updated the official Bravely Second site with some addition information about the game as a while, as well as Agnès and the character classes in-game. Check out the latest information via Gematsu below:

Guatelatio

A city that has long been prosperous, Guatelatio sits at the entrance to the highway that leads to the Temple of Earth and the Holy Land. Home to the Crystal Orthodoxy’s headquarters, as well as numerous villas and estates belong to especially faithful aristocrats and various other prominent families, at the northern edge of town sits the Gate of Faith, an important military institution tasked with defending the Holy Land that employs the “Orthodox Knights,” a group that the Orthodoxy holds in high regards.

When the Duchy of Eternia was in its prime, Guatelatio managed to rid itself of the Orthodox Knights and barely attain recognition as autonomous entity, but with the Orthodoxy and Duchy’s relationship taking a turn for the peaceful, the city eventually becomes the former’s official capitol city, bringing with it renewed construction of the cathedral and a return to bustling life in general. There were plans to hold the signing ceremony for the peace treaty in Guatelatio, but things don’t go quite as planned….

Agnes Oblige

Agnes traveled the world with her allies in years past, overcoming numerous troubles and ultimately driving back the Great Void that brought Luxendarc to the brink of calamity. In the wake of the decade-long Passion Period, she miraculously puts the then-collapsing Crystal Orthodoxy back together, ultimately becoming the only fourth pope the Orthodoxy has ever seen and the first one to rise to such a position in centuries. Not only is she on friendly terms with many important players, but she also enjoys massive popularity with the common people and has put her heart and soul into realizing lasting peace between the Orthodoxy and Eternia. However, when the time comes for the peace treaty ceremony, she ends up getting kidnapped.

Jobs

  • Valkyrie – Valkyries are an offensive class that do their dirty work by attacking from mid-air and fleeing. As such, they’re especially potent when BP is spent during their attacks. The recommended weapon for them is a spear.
  • Superstar – Superstars buff up friendly characters by singing them songs, with bolstered stats potentially including, but not limited to, offense, defense, and BP. Given their main role as a buffing job, Superstars are equipped with myriad abilities to get their work done.
  • Time Mage – Time Mages are tacticians who control the flow of time during battles to their advantage. Characters with this job are better able to heal the entire party simultaneously and deal proportional damage relative to the enemies’ HP. Their weapon of choice is the wand.
  • Red Mage – Red Mages can utilize both White and Black Magic. This makes them a hybrid class of sorts that’s well-rounded when it comes to healing and offensive magic, as well as buffs and debuffs.

Bravely Second will be released for 3DS, though a specific date has yet to be announced.
