‘Bravely Default II’ free demo now available for the Nintendo Switch in Asia

The game releases on the Switch later this year!

ONE Store Beta Now Available

With the game releasing later this year for the Nintendo Switch, Square Enix announced recently that a free demo for Bravely Default II is available now on the Switch in Asia. The demo was released not only to give fans a chance to try out the game ahead of its release, it will also be used to gather feedback from fans via a questionnaire about the demo on March 30.

Not familiar with the game? Bravely Default II is a JRPG that’s the follow-up to the original Bravely Default title for the Nintendo 3DS. In the sequel, four new Heroes of Light will embark on a grand mission while being guided by the elemental Crystals.

Does the premise seem familiar? Well, the first Bravely Default title was originally conceived as a sequel to Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light for the DS. During development, Bravely Default became a game of its own (outside of the Final Fantasy series), though it still retained familiar elements such as Crystals and the Heroes of Light.

What makes Bravely Default different from FF titles is that it features a unique strategy that lets players decide whether to go all out (Brave), or hold back and wait for the right moment to strike (Default).

Bravely Default II releases sometime later this year for the Nintendo Switch.
