Bravely Second trademarked in Europe, team pondering if third game should be a sequel or not

Square Enix has recently trademarked “Bravely Second” in Europe. The name was just filed today, probably a sign that a localization announcement is on the horizon. Perhaps at E3, as expected!?

Besides that, while speaking with Japanese website Gamer, producer Tomoya Asano stated that the team is considering two options for the third “Bravely” game. The next game can end up being another sequel, but it’s also possible that it could become a completely new title instead.

Asano and assistant producer Shinji Takahashi said:

“Hmm… yes, we’re currently thinking about whether a sequel would be more appropriate or if a completely new title would be more appropriate. This is currently a hot topic among [the development team].” – Asano.
“We’re thinking about all kinds of things, like what kind of things are requested, and getting feedback from fans.” – Takahashi.

Asano also noted that there are no plans for Bravely Second to see a second version like what happened with Bravely Default and For the Sequel. Right now, the team is instead thinking about the western version of the game.

There are also no plans for additional scenarios through DLC. The only updates for Bravely Second will come in the form of standard patches.
