Bravely Default has been out in the west for some time, and despite some topical narrative choices, it's safe to say it's been a hit. Siliconera got the chance to talk to producer Tomoya Asano, and mostly talked about what to expect from the sequel.

Asano was quick to mention first and foremost that it wouldn't be an action fueled sequel, and would be more story oriented. He notes that player reactions "have been very positive," so the turn-based battle system will return.  He also goes on to say that it won't be an exploration based experience, just like Bravely Default -- which is why enemy encounters aren't visible on the map, and why you can toggle the encounter rate. The toggle feature is confirmed for the sequel.

For more info like how the franchise is targeted towards adults rather than younger audiences, check out the full interview.

Bravely Second looks beautiful, but what's up with the bondage?

Unfortunately I've yet to get around to playing Bravely Default, so I'm not entirely sure what the deal is with the bondage. Is it a thematic thing or a literal thing? Clue me in. Unless it's spoilers. Then don't. We received some words from Square Enix about the game world, jobs system, and so on a few days back, but pictures are nicer, right? more

GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME BRAVELY SECOND

This morning's freakout over Square Enix's Bravely 3DS RPG franchise is a normal occurrence for me. It's just what I do. Freak out with me over these new trailers of the recently announced Bravely Second and Bravely Default: For the Sequel. The concept art for Second (seen in both trailers) is stunning. Everything is just... aaah I can't take it! 2014, guys. It's happening soon.more
