A new Bravely Default has been announced in Japan! It’s called Bravely Default: Fairy’s Effect, and this “fantasy RPG” will be out next year on smartphones. No word on a Western release.

I'm fifty-two hours into my first play-through of Bravely Default: Where the Fairy Flies. All four of my characters are level 99, each has all 24 of the game's jobs mastered. I've not maxed-out levels and jobs in a Final Fantasy game in... ever.
