Bravely Second Set for Winter in Japan

More great news for RPG Lovers out of PAX this past week: Bravely Second, the direct sequel to Square Enix's successful Bravely Default for the Nintendo 3DS, will be hitting Japanese shelves this holiday season. It may come as something of a sudden follow up to western gamers, but Bravely Default has actually been out in Japan for two years now.

Accompanying the announcement was a brief trailer showing new locales that will, if nothing else, make you want to go replay the first title. This news also comes on the heels of Nintendo's announcement of new 3DS hardware which will also be available, in Japan, this winter. Gamers elsewhere will have to wait until next year for the 3DS hardware refresh and Bravely Second.

It's been a really great week of surprising news out of Square Enix. Hopefully, with TGS right around the corner, they keep their hot streak going!

I know. Did you see those new cities? I almost started crying but then I pulled out my 2DS, fired up BD, and then actually started crying.

Final Fantasy Explorers Available Now

Final Fantasy Explorers, the plucky action-RPG upstart that took its time getting out of Japan, is now available to Western fans. If review units were provided to the mainstream gaming press then it would seem that Square Enix has not yet lifted the embargo which, historically, is not a great sign if the publisher is relying on positive buzz to...
