REVIEW – Bravely Second: End Layer

So, you’ve returned. Do you still remember? I welcome you back to Luxendarc, two years following the events of the Great Chasm, when the crystals fell into a deep darkness. The world has been at peace and the war between the Crystal Orthodoxy and the Duchy of Eternia has since been ceased. Though that was then. And now, a new tale must be told…

Bravely Second: End Layer follows the long journey of Yew Geneolgia, a young knight from Gathelatio, where he will loose close friends but create new faithful companions, on his quest to save her holiness, Agnès Oblige, and discover the deep, dark secret of the Kaiser Oblivion.
