As happy as I am that this franchise lives on this better not be like Xenoblade X. I need my Ringabel Interdimensional Police Force sequel tease answered dammit!
Also Second was better than Default. The choice to be half-parody half-loveletter to the genre was the correct one and I'd be very sad if they just went back to playing everything completely straight.
Still I'll take a sequel than not! I honestly thought the franchise was dead after Second's sales figures, glad to see that's not the case.

It's like the old Final Fantasies, but with a system that lets you save or spend turns, and a host of QoL improvements. Athrun's right that Second was better than Default, so hopefully this'll continue the upward trend (ignoring Octopath).
Perhaps I should play my copies of Bravely Default and Bravely Second.
At this stage, my tentative advice would be: leave Default, look up the plot, and play Second. You’ll miss out on some amazing story beats and set-pieces, but you’ll also miss out on the dogshit second half of the game, and given the limited time available to you you don’t have time for half a JRPG of dogshit.
Or do whatever so long as it isn’t spending all your gaming time on live service nonsense.
