Nintendo announced Bravely Default II during the last Direct in December. We only got a short look at the title then, but today’s video presentation gave us a briefing on the game’s characters (along with an explanation of the franchise’s basic battle mechanics).
Don’t be confused, but this is actually the third game in the franchise. The original Bravely Default came out for the Nintendo 3DS in 2012. Bravely Second followed in 2015.
Nintendo noted in the Direct that it will be sending out surveys looking for feedback from the demo, which will then impact development of the main game.
