Square Enix will release a new version of Bravely Default Flying Fairy in Japan this winter with additional elements and features designed to garner interest in a sequel, according to a scan from the recent issue of Weekly Jump Magazine.
Bravely Default: For the Sequel will be available in Japan on Dec. 5 for 4,990 yen at retail and 2,900 yen via the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
According to the article, For the Sequel is an "evolution" of the original title, which launched in Japan last October. This updated version will include new storyline events and difficulty levels as well as an auto-battle mode and an option to increase combat speed by up to four times. Controls have also been updated and players can use their save data from the original Bravely Default in For the Sequel.
Bravely Default Flying Fairy is currently slated to launch in Europe sometime this year and in North America in 2014. Polygon has reached out to Square Enix to ask if the new features will be included in the North American or European versions of the game, and will share more details as we have them.
