Last week, Square Enix revealed its Switch release Bravely Default II had sold around 950,000 units worldwide. It’s on track to surpass the sales of the original 3DS release – which sold just over a million units in its lifetime. Naturally, it’s raised questions about the future of the series.
The good news is Team Asano hopes to continue to the series and is already in the planning phases for the next entry. Here’s what the producer Tomoyo Asano had to say in the latest issue of Famitsu (translation courtesy of Nintendo Everything):
“Bravely Default II was well-received by fans and as a result, we’re hoping to continue the series as we feel we can pull it off once again. With that said, we’re still in the planning phase, and I suspect development will take another 3-4 years, so we’d appreciate if fans could bear with us.”
Asano was previously asked about the future of the series in April last year. At the time, he said he had a concept in mind and mentioned how it could even be a smartphone release:
“I do have a concept for it. I haven’t nailed down the particulars intentionally, so it could even be a smartphone game. Maybe I’ll have the opportunity to make it in the future if fans support the series.”
