Bravely Default 2's cast is an eclectic mix of oddballs set against a backdrop of chaos and destruction.

Bravely Default 2 might have been delayed until 2021, but Square Enix recently offered brief insight into the world of Excillant and some of its inhabitants.

Excillant is split into five kingdoms. One of those is Musa, a nation formerly in charge of preserving the world’s balance before it lost its crystal. Now, Musa is on a crash course headed towards certain doom.

Gloria, its princess, fell into despair and hid in the neighboring Halcyonia, Land of the Spring Breeze. But Gloria decides this isn’t the end and sets out to recover the crystal, where she meets Seth. He’s a lone sailor who promises to help her on her quest just because that’s the kind of guy he is.

These two are joined by mercenaries Elvis Lazlow and Adelle Ein. Elvis is searching for a special asterisk that opens an even more special spellbook, and Adelle is his sword protector.

Square Enix teased some of Bravely Default 2‘s supporting cast as well. Sloan of the Blue Forest is Gloria’s devoted retainer who fled to Halcyonia with her, and he’s also the elderly warrior from the new trailer. Placido Halcyonia rules the nation that bears his name and is known for his military prowess — and his soft spot for Gloria.

Then there’s a set of mercenary asterisk holders the party will eventually face in combat. Dag Rampage holds the Vanguard Asterisk and pursues his goals with single-minded determination. Selene Noetic, holder of the White Mage asterisk, acts as his handler and keeps him from getting too out of control.

These are just a few of the jobs in Bravely Default 2. Square Enix reiterated that mixing and matching job skills and abilities is vital for success in the game, even with the addition of difficulty options to polish the demo’s roughness.

Bravely Default 2 is set to release on February 26, 2021, for Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Bravey Default 2 news as it develops.
