Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, a 3DS title from Square Enix, has been turning heads since it was finally announced that it would be localized in the West this year. Now some more good news has just been revealed: a new Bravely Default title is rumored to be in the works.
Today in a compiling of tweets detailing a meeting between the series’ illustrator Akihiko Yoshida and designer of Tactics Ogre Yasumi Matsuno, it was revealed that Yoshida is working on the next Bravely Default game. The confirmation came in a reply to a tweet by artist Misato Mitsumi, who asked what Yoshida was working on aside from Final Fantasy XIV. Yasumi Matsuno replied that Yoshida was at work on the next Bravely Default project.
Now of course, this is not an absolute confirmation that the sequel is actually in production. No representative of Square Enix has yet to make a statement on this matter. However, this isn’t the first time that a hint of a Bravely Default sequel being in development was expressed to the public. Tomoya Asano, the series’ producer, has hinted at a sequel before and even started to collect user feedback for a future Bravely Default title.
For now, we will just have to wait and see if this reveal holds true as more information on a possible sequel comes to light.
Bravely Default as been released in Japan for some time, and will be coming in 2014 for North America and 2013 for Europe.
