Leaked in Jump.

- Dec 5 2013
- Retail: 4990yen
- Expansion digital download: 2900yen

Includes:
- New story events
- New controls for more comfortable play
- Auto-mode can make battles up to 4 times faster
- Difficulty options
- Save slots increased to 3
- Supports old save files

This is an expansion + re-release of Bravely Default. Not a sequel. Presumably the subtitle suggests that they're selling this to fund the sequel? Lol. Hopefully this is the version used for the US/EU release.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

I wonder if Nintendo will be giving this version a localistion instead of the previous one?

The new features sound cool, I'd be okay with waiting a bit longer and having these things.

I've made this post in another thread I think it will fit here :p.

Wait? WHAT? I really hope the localized version will include those extras. Thinking about it now maybe that's why we haven't seen the game since announcement at any convention. Wishful thinking I know :(.
This subtitle is really fucking stupid though.

"Bravely Default For The Sequel"

I beg your pardon?

This would be great.

They're asking you to go bankrupt so that they may have a sequel. Good stuff.

I wonder if they consult the localization department for these titles...

If this is the version that's coming over, that would explain why the EU release was unexpectedly pushed into next year.

So this looks like a "GOTY", "Ultimate", "Complete" version of the game that is often used in the west on re-releases. Am I right with that assumption?

We better get this version in the US. I'm going to assume this is why it's taking so long to localize
It's probably not why though :[

In the article, the producer says that this is the "complete edition" of Bravely Default, and they want to give people a chance to play a version of the game with all the improvements they've made before they release the sequel. Sounds like the sequel is a done deal, and it would be very shameful if this isn't the EU/US version because the producer has also acknowledged the interest of overseas fans previously.

Always be interested in this game.

So BD 2 in 2014? I wonder what will be first localized version or the sequel :p.

Maybe they mean "The sequel for Bravely Default" in a combination of a complete lie, a misunderstanding of English prepositions as postpositions and a poor choice of preposition.

2k yen for something like this? No thanks. BD was awesome, but I don't feel like playing it again just for "New story events".

"Bravely Default For The Sequel" is the real name of the game? Really? This has to be the most bizarre game title Square-Enix has come up with yet.

I hope you're right, but the release date makes me doubtful. I mean if BD is still due for a Europe release late in 2013, it'll be close to simultaneous and it would be unusual to do that, though I guess not unheard of.
