Bravely Second: End Layer

Though North America still has a little bit longer to wait before it receives Bravely Second: End Layer, the game has been out in Europe for a couple days. In the lead up to its release, the game took some heat for localisation changes made for the western release where the Tomahawk class was changed to the Cowboy class. It seems that's not all the change that the western version has been subject to, as the sidequest system has received some tweaks, too.

In the Japanese version of the game, there are some sidequests that have branching paths, where the player is required to make a decision and pick one side or the other. One way leads to a "Bad" ending and the other leads to a "Good" ending. Evidently, this is not the case in the version that Europe just received; either path ultimately has the same "Good" ending, effectively removing the consequences of the player's choice. Naturally, this is to be taken with a grain of salt -- as this information comes via forum users that claim to have played both versions -- but it wouldn't be entirely surprising if this is actually the case.
