Square Enix recently teased a new Bravely Default game to celebrate the franchise’s 4th anniversary. The game was just revealed today and will go by the title of Bravely Default: Fairy’s Effect.

Not a lot about the game is known as of yet besides the platform and a release window. After the initial tease, many thought the game would be for Nintendo’s new platform, Nintendo Switch. However, it turns out that Bravely Default: Fairy’s Effect is instead going to be a smartphone game, bringing the fantasy RPG franchise to mobiles.

The game’s official Twitter account suggests more information will be revealed soon.

The game itself is planned for a 2017 release although a closed beta testing phase will happen before that where a total of 5000 players will be invited to test the game on Android. There is no word whether there will be an iOS version or a beta for that version.

This reveal alongside Square Enix and Silicon Studio’s decision to expand beyond a Nintendo platform seems to coincide with their hinting from a couple of years ago where the developers suggested the might release future installments on other platforms.

Square Enix released the original Bravely Default: Flying Fairy game for the Nintendo 3DS in October 2012. An enhanced version of the game, titled Bravely Default: For the Sequel in Japan, shipped in Japan on the Nintendo 3DS in December 2013 and in North America in February 2014.

Another sequel titled Bravely Second: End Layer was released for Nintendo 3DS in April 2016 in the US while a European release was before than on 26th February. The game was very well received and went on to become the ninth best-selling video game in US during its launch month of April.

After the release of Bravely Second, things went pretty much silent for a bit until this recent tease and then the announcement.
