During today's Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase, Nintendo revealed that Bravely Default II will release worldwide for Nintendo Switch on February 26, 2021. A new trailer was shown, highlighting the game's Asterisk Holders - enemies that exhibit certain job functionalities. When defeated, these jobs can then be used by any of the playable cast members.

Square Enix also released a Japanese video highlighting some of the tweaks and changes made ahead of the game's release, based on feedback given from demo players earlier this year. The video has English subtitles, so anyone can go ahead and see the response to the feedback.

Introducing the Asterisk Holders

Demo Survey Feedback Video

Brought together by fate, four heroes will embark on a great voyage in the beautiful and engaging role-playing game BRAVELY DEFAULT II from SQUARE ENIX, the creators of the FINAL FANTASY series. In the series’ new adventure, players will set off on an epic journey, visiting stunning locations, meeting intriguing characters and battling dastardly villains. By defeating enemies called Asterisk bearers, the heroes will acquire Asterisks, which allow them to change jobs. By using the right combination of jobs, players can turn the tide of battle in their favor. Some of the jobs that can be acquired include the powerful Vanguard, the White Mage, the Bard, the Beastmaster and the Gambler, among many others. After a demo version of the game went live in March, the developers collected player feedback about things like difficulty and controls to improve the overall game experience. A video addressing the helpful fan feedback will be posted on the BRAVELY DEFAULT II website and on YouTube later today. BRAVELY DEFAULT II launches exclusively for Nintendo Switch on Feb. 26, 2021.
