Bravely Default 2 rated for Switch ahead of 2020 release
Sequel features a new world and characters
Bravely Default 2 has been classified for Nintendo Switch, suggesting its release could be imminent.
The RPG was announced in December 2019 for release in 2020, and a demo was released on the eShop in March of this year.
The game received an M (Mature) rating from the Australian Classification Board on September 22.
Bravely Default 2 producer Tomoya Asano (Octopath Traveler) and composer Revo (Sound Horizon/Linked Horizon) held the same roles on 2012’s original Bravely Default for Nintendo 3DS.
Publisher Nintendo says the upcoming Switch game features a new story, world and characters, “but with the atmosphere and excitement the Bravely series is known for”.
It sees players travelling the world “in search of the four Crystals with the latest incarnation of the brave band known as the Heroes of Light”.
Nintendo has aired several Nintendo Direct Mini partner showcases focused on third-party games over the past few months.
The most recent on September 17 was used to announce Ori and the Will of the Wisps for Switch, which was released digitally on the same day.
It was also used to reveal Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, which are set for release on Switch in 2021.
