Who says old-school RPGs are dead? The 3DS’ great Bravely Default has defied the odds and sold over a million copies since it was released at the beginning of this year.
Siliconera reports that 400,000 of those sales were from Japan and the other 600,000 are split between other countries. It’s no surprise the game is doing so well, as a solid RPG is hard to come by these days and Bravely Default is an example of a developer doing the genre really well.
There is already a sequel to Bravely Default that is in development, which currently has the title of Bravely Second. The developers have said that the sequel will have a more mature tone compared to the first game, as more dark and intense themes enter into the narrative. The sequel does not have a release date as of yet.
