Earlier today, Square Enix released an opening cinematic trailer for Bravely Second, featuring the promotional theme song “Great Distance” produced by Supercell and performed by Chelly. Bravely Second: End Layer is scheduled for release on April 23 in Japan and the original soundtrack will be releasing a month later, on May 20, 2015. The soundtrack contains three discs and 46 tracks, excluding the theme song that will be available as a single release on the same day.
As usual, there will be two editions: standard and limited. The latter comes with a special “Aurora” packing and illustration cards. The standard edition costs ¥3,300 + tax and the limited edition will be available for ¥3,800 + tax. “Great Distance” CD’s pricing is set to ¥1,300. Visit the official website for samples.
Bravely Second takes place a few years after bringing peace to Luxendarc. Agnes Oblige has become the newly inaugurated Pope of the Crystal Orthodoxy and works to bring peace between Eternia and Crystal Orthodoxy. The dream of peace is soon shattered when she gets kidnapped by Emperor Oblivion – right before she was meant to participate in the peace treaty ceremony. The future which once seemed certain is now in danger. This is where Magnolia Arch, Yu Zeneorshia, Jean Engarde and Nikolai Nikolanikov step in! Now Edea Lee is assisting the new heroes during their journey as well.
Square Enix hasn’t yet confirmed Bravely Second: End Layer for the West. However, the first installment’s sales surprised them that it’s very likely the Western release will be announced sooner or later. The new opening CGI also implies the game might have a bigger budget than before, which makes Square Enix seem quite confident about the sequel and its possible success.
