Square Enix has unveiled a new one Brave standard. Cold Brave standard: Brilliant light, the game marks the franchise decade.
Can you believe it has been ten years? I can not!
The official trailer, which can be seen below, shows Braveis known Bravely and Default command-battle system and features Brave second-style art. Raita Kazama again does key art and character design, while Keiichi Ajiro, who has writing credit for the first game and Brave others, has written an original story for Brilliant light. All this is good news for longtime fans of Brave series.
On the way to iOS and Android, as you have probably guessed, it is free to play with the purchase of items in the game, so your mileage may depend on your opinion of the mechanics.
