Bravely Second Reveals Cat User Class

Bravely Second, a JRPG from Square Enix, is slowly inching closer and closer. At this year’s Jump Festa, a new class was revealed for the upcoming title.

At this year’s Jump Festa, it was revealed that Bravely Second will have a new class: the Cat User. The new character that holds this class is Minette Goroneze, who is an Asterisk Holder. The Cat User job class specializes in brass knuckles and axes. One if the abilities that the class has are the “Cat High Arts.” This takes two items, and summons a pair of cats to execute powerful moves. What cats appear depends on the items used. There are also the “Cat Arts,” with the following moves being confirmed: “Consume,” “Slugger,” “White Window,” and “Book Burning.” “Nenneko” makes all enemies fall asleep, while “Lie Down” raises physical and magical defense. There was another move called “Dig,” though the effect of the ability was not clarified. Also revealed was the Astrologist class, of which nothing is known.

Developed by Silicon Studio and Square Enix, Bravely Second is the sequel to the hit JRPG, Bravely Default. Bravely Second takes place in the same universe as the original title, and is set several years after. The game will still retain the anime art style, though the characters will look more realistic and have a slightly less chibi look. Though the game had been in talks since 2012, the game was not officially announced until a year later in 2013. According to game’s producer, Tomoya Asano, the title will explore more of the game’s world, Luxendarc. In July of 2014, it was revealed that composer Revo would not be composing the game’s soundtrack due to conflicting schedules, and that Ryo from the band Supercell would be handling the soundtrack instead.

Bravely Second will release in Japan on April 23rd, 2015. The game will be available for the 3DS system.
