You have ten hours to figure out if Bravely Second: End Layer is your jam.
Welcome to the future. A wonderful place where a 3DS JRPG demo is longer than most full-priced commercial releases. The ten hour long demo for Bravely Second: End Layer announced for Europe last week is being released state side. The demo is slated for release in Europe on February 11th. And don’t worry, grinding enthusiasts, the progress you make in the demo will be carried over to the full game should you decide to make the plunge when the game comes out in April.
The lengthy demo will come as no surprise to those who played the original Bravely Default demo, which was similarly hefty and released in five downloadable installments on Nintendo’s eShop.
In a world where the traditional demo is quickly becoming extinct, it’s nice to see a publisher, especially one hitting the digital distribution drum as hard as Square Enix, giving consumers the opportunity to try before they buy.
Original released in Japan in April, 2015, Bravely Second: End Layer is set for release in Europe on February 26th, in Australia on February 27th and finally in North America on April 15th, nearly an entire year after the Japanese release.
