Bravely Default: Flying Fairy expansion heading to Japan this December By Erren Van Duine on August 28, 2013 at 2:22 PM

You might think Bravely Default is getting its oft teased continuation with the announcement of Bravely Default For the Sequel, but you’d be wrong.

Leaked in this week’s Jump magazine, Square Enix is preparing an expansion of sorts for the original game, set to release in Japan on December 5th. Fans will be able to buy a retail copy with everything packed in for ¥4,990 or just the expansion as a digital download for ¥2900.

The expansion itself will include new story events, new controls for a more comfortable play style, an auto mode that can increase battle speeds four-fold, and new difficulty options. Additionally, For the Sequel will support old save files from the original release and an expanded number of save slots – now up to three total.

Again, it’s important to note that this isn’t a sequel, but presumably something that – if it does well enough – will help fund the next entry in the series.
