At last year's Game Awards, the reveal of the show for many Nintendo fans was the Switch exclusive, Bravely Default II. As much of a surprise as this was, at the time, we couldn't help but wonder why the other previously released sequel wasn't being acknowledged.
Now that the 2015 3DS entry Bravely Second: End Layer has seemingly been pushed aside, the game's producer Tomoya Asano has apologised for it not living up to fan expectations. He shared this message in the most recent issue of Weekly Famitsu Magazine (thanks for the translation, DualShockers):
Before getting more into Bravely Default II details in this interview, I’d like to apologize to the fans about Bravely Second. There were parts of that game that didn’t meet the many expectations fans had. The development team deeply reflected on Bravely Second‘s problems and it showed in all our following projects.
The next entry in the series, Bravely Default II, is once again being produced by Team Asano and will be developed by Claytechworks (Bravely Default) and feature music composed by Revo (the composer of the original game on 3DS). This successor to the original is due to arrive later this year.
