Bravely Second Shows Off New City and Job Outfits

Posted by Alex Olney

Magnolia Architecture

After receiving critical acclaim and over one million units sold, Bravely Default set a solid benchmark for JRPGs on 3DS. It’s safe to say that its sequel, Bravely Second, has a tremendous amount to live up to.

To please its fans and keep them salivating, Square Enix has revealed information regarding its upcoming instalment, including a new environment to explore as well as pictures showing a variety of semi-newcomer Magnolia Arch’s job outfits.

The new city – as pictured above – is called Gathlatio, which marks the start of the path towards the Temple of Earth. Little is known so far about the location, but its largely vertical layout suggests that we may very well see the same pseudo-2D town exploration system from the previous game.

Be sure to cast your eyes over Magnolia Arch’s new striking design choices below and voice your fashionista opinions.

I hope the jobs will get new skills so it doesn't get repetitive from the previous game. That was the best part of Bravely Default after all.

Well, they made time mage look less ridiculous, not that anybody used it as their main class anyway.

So if there are new cities that were somehow not around during Bravely Default 1 I assume Agnes has attained eternal life if she looks the same.

Maybe this release will prompt me to finish the first game. Doubt it either why I'll get this day one. Just don't go the Atlus route with the premium charge!

Time mage looks better but are there any new classes in Bravely Second? 24 is alot but it'd still be nice to have more, especially with a sequel.

Those red eyes... Alas, is Magnolia posessed or something?

Well, whatever. As for the clothes, I like this iteration of the time mage outfit a lot better than the original. Not to mention I prefer this red mage outfit any day of the week.

That new city looks amazing. But Im praying they fix one of my only complaints with the first game: not having the ability to explore buildings other than shops. Am I right?

I'm loving the new design for the time mage. It definitely needed that makeover. The little adjustment on the performer and red mage are good too. I'm not really sure where the tweaks are on the Valkyrie though.....

I just hope the story doesn't get jumbled like the whole second half that bravely 1 was. The first half of that game was the best first half of a RPG I ever played then Bam! It was like they didn't know what to do with the rest of the game. I have a great Idea! Let's make players do it all over and over and over and over! Oh and over again. I will pick this up definitely. I just hope the story sorts itself in a better manner. The second half of bravely default just felt lazy

I'm glad the original did well overseas. At this point we can probably assume this will be coming over...

I don't see what people saw in the first game.

It has nowhere near enough content or exploration (Which I have no desire for whatsoever in stuff like a platformer but in an RPG its needed.)

The story is incredibly uninteresting. (A good RPG when I am not playing about it I am thinking about the story).

There should be enough optional content to get a reasonable amount of classes to maximum and you should have to work out what to do yourself (Or by talking to NPC's).

They should have just released Dragon Quest VII instead. (Dragon Quest VI had a reasonable amount of content for its job system).

Sweet!!! Huge fan of the first game. I'm hoping they don't keep the same dungeon-replay you find in the late game and just stay fresh all the way through. Can't wait for the new one!

While I think the first one was a deeply flawed experience, it showed enough potential — and I got enough enjoyment out of it — to more than warrant continued interest in the series. I'm looking forward to seeing how they update the experience in this game. :D

the one problem I have with Bravely Second is Magnolia Arch's design. She looks way too devilish and evil looking. Those red eyes though? Up until just recently I thought she was the main antagonist of the game based on one of the screenshots (I think she was wearing a purple outfit in that one???). Hate to be a stickler but she better have a good reason for looking so mean, cuz right now she just looks like she just had her demon army burn down an entire village for her much to her enjoyment, and not like a relatable main protagonist that we all love.

The new town looks gorgeous imo, also quite loving the updated look of the Performer Class. I hope Bravely Second will have a good experience throughout the whole game since I did not enjoy having to repeat the temple bosses.

They should have added the chance of customizing the appearance of at least 1 character... I hate it when the characters are imposed to you.. :(

The buildings and bridge in the first picture remind me of ye olde London. The style is strikingly similar.

I wonder what Edea and Ringabel will be doing now, even if not playable I really want to know what they are doing. I would like to see jobs like a BloodMage who sacrifices HP to unleash powered up dark magic, Berserker that is about all out attack, Scout or Sniper that allow you to analyze an opponent and act accordingly, maybe even a werewolf job but that's too farfetched.

I'm not that interested in this series, but I couldn't help but notice how terrible the name of this game is.
