Square Enix has released new information regarding its upcoming RPG Bravely Default II for the Nintendo Switch.
A new entry in the “Bravely” series. A new world, a new story, and all-new Heroes of Light
Our tale unfolds on the continent of Excillant, home to five mighty kingdoms.
Seth, a young sailor, washes up on the shores of one such kingdom, where he meets Gloria of Musa, a princess forced to flee her home after it was destroyed by evil forces bent on stealing the sacred Crystals. Soon after, he also encounters two travellers determined to decipher a mysterious and magical book: Elvis and Adelle.
Brought together by fate, our heroes set out on an epic adventure, each determined to fulfil their purpose.
The Continent of Excillant
A natural progression for the Bravely series. The warmth and playfulness of the Bravely universe is depicted even more beautifully in Bravely Default II.
The story unfolds in the various kingdoms that make up the continent of Excillant. What challenges must our heroes overcome if they are to achieve their goals…?
Rimedhal: The Snowbound Land
