Bravely Second: End Layer is the direct sequel to the acclaimed Bravely Default: Where the Fairy Flies by Square Enix. Like its predecessor, Bravely Second is a RPG that’s heavily influenced by the classics of yore–most notably, Square Enix’s own Final Fantasy series.
Just like those games, Bravely Second is tough, requiring a lot of careful planning and attention–even when facing standard enemies, nevermind boss fights. But it’s not simply a trek down memory lane, as the game offers many features that remind players it’s a game from 2016, not 1996.
Firstly, Bravely Second features a refreshingly flexible turn-based battle system, which–coupled with an extensive job and ability system–encourages players to experiment and strategise. In addition, one can adjust a variety of settings, such as speeding up battles or adjusting the rate of encounters.
Important : If you haven’t played Bravely Default, you will enjoy Bravely Second just fine. However, be aware that the opening sequence of Bravely Second completely spoils the plot of Bravely Default. If you want to play Bravely Default first, we have a guide for that too!
