Thanks to Nintendo of Europe, we now have a better understanding in English of what Bravely Second: End Layer is all about. The company published a new “story trailer” laying out the finer details of this game’s storyline.
When the evil Kaiser Oblivion abducts Agnès Oblige, the heroine of Bravely Default, and her bodyguard Yew Geneolgia pledges to rescue her from the kaiser’s Skyhold, an impregnable fortress floating high over Eternia. Along the way, Yew will need to team up with Magnolia Arch and other new faces, plus a few returning heroes like Edea Lee and Tiz Arrior, to survive foreboding dungeons and conquer fearsome enemies.
So, it’s a rescue mission of the previous game’s leading female! As we know at the end of the last game, Agnes was made “Pope” of her world’s leading religion and thrown into a life of politics. Tiz was kidnapped and thrown into a science experiment, turning him into a super being, and Edea was promoted to the captain of her knights.
Only Ringabel is missing in action, but knowing the twist and turns the previous game took at the end of its story, I wouldn’t count him out making an appearance somewhere down the line.
Bravely Second: End Layer will launch on the Nintendo 3DS on April 15. Nintendo has confirmed that we’ll be seeing a 10-hour demo before that date, and it’s for the best. Bravely Default’s demo was one of the best ever released, and it’s still on my 3DS despite also having the full game.
