Four heroes, four crystals – one legendary adventure!

Join the Heroes of Light on their grand quest to restore balance to the world in BRAVELY DEFAULT II for Nintendo Switch!

Lead your party on a journey through five kingdoms as you seek to return the Crystals to their rightful home. Use Asterisks to unlock jobs and abilities that will allow you to take on all manner of monsters, and be sure to use the Brave and Default commands to manage the delicate balance of risk and reward!

Battle your way

With its Brave and Default system, BRAVELY DEFAULT II puts a unique twist on the turn-based RPG formula, by allowing players to go all-in on attacks at the cost of future turns, or adopt a defensive stance in order to bank turns for later use.

A balance between playing it safe or adopting a riskier strategy must be struck in order to prevail against the huge variety of enemies you’ll encounter.

An Excillant adventure

Our saga begins when a young sailor named Seth washes up on an unknown shore. He is rescued by Princess Gloria and her loyal retainer Sir Sloan, who are on a quest to recover the Crystals and restore harmony to the world.

Unsure about what has happened to him, Seth partners up with the duo, and the group is quickly joined by Elvis, a brash yet lovable scholar, and Adelle, a cool-headed mercenary. With the Wind Crystal already in their possession, these unlikely comrades set off in search of the rest of these priceless treasures.

As the world spins further out of control and dark forces seek to use the Crystals for their own nefarious ends, who knows what adventures await our brave heroes...

World travellers

Our heroes already have one Crystal in their possession, but the other three have been stolen, and are scattered around the world. It’s up to Seth and the gang to recover them all. Excillant is a big old place, so let’s take a look at some of the kingdoms you’ll be exploring on your adventure:

CI_NSwitch_BravelyDefaultII_Battle.png

Now it’s your turn

Spotted an enemy while out and about? Simply approach them to engage in combat! Every ally and enemy will attack in turn, giving you time to figure out the right move to seize victory.

Be sure to pick your battles, though, and be aware that stronger opponents may chase after you. What’s more, if they manage to attack you from behind, they’ll start the fight with some special bonuses!

Using Brave and Default

Along with an assortment of different attacks, skills and spells, all party members have access to two very special commands: Brave and Default. These actions allow you to accumulate or spend your Brave Points (BP), with each point allowing you to perform one action during your turn.

Use Brave to throw yourself into the fray and deliver a flurry of decisive blows, or stick with Default to give yourself time to safely build up for an all-out attack.

Managing your BP is key to becoming an unbeatable force on the battlefield, so don’t get reckless. Be sure to save up some extra BP before launching into that huge attack, or you could end up in the red – and unable to do anything the following turn!

Finding the perfect job

While recovering the Crystals is the main objective of their quest, Seth and his friends are also on the hunt for Asterisks – magical objects that grant the user special skills and abilities.

They’re currently in the possession of an array of evil individuals determined to stand in the party’s way. It’s up to you to defeat them and wrest the Asterisks from their control!

Once acquired, you can unlock the power of an Asterisk to take on the associated job. Party members can have both a Main Job and a Sub Job, allowing you to create a unique blend of talents to use in the heat of battle. Bear in mind that the more experienced a character becomes in a job, the more benefits that job will provide. Be sure to try out as many as possible!

Here are just a few of the jobs your motley crew can try their hands at:
