Square Enix’s incoming RPG sequel, Bravely Second, will no longer be burdened with just its initial title. The good folks over at Square Enix have donned it with a new subtitle, changing it forever to Bravely Second: End Layer.
This proves once again that JRPGs will never come in second place when coming up with ridiculous game titles. At least it didn’t turn to something horribly generic like “Origins” or “Revelations.”
Along with the announcement, Square Enix released a new image of a mysterious figure from the game. I’m going to guess that this is everyone’s favorite generic fantasy hero Tiz equipped with a streak of renegade that has been instilled in him since the end of the first game. A new batch of character models reveal that both he and the character in this art have the same hairstyle.
Even though this is only the second game in Square Enix’s blossoming new series, it is actually the third release. The previous two releases also carried subtitles which did not make it to America. The original game was titled Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, with the second half probably dropped for sounding like a children’s bedtime story. An international version released in Japan with all the improvements of the English one was also released with the title Bravely Default: For the Sequel, if that was not confusing enough.
Who knows what the game will be released as when (if) Square Enix decides to announce the localization. We’ll just have to wait and see. Bravely Second: End Layer will be released for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan on April 23.
