ryo (supercell) Produces Bravely Second’s Opening Movie Theme Song

Bravely Second: End Layer Opening Movie

Some of you may have been expecting Bravely Second: End Layer’s release in the next two weeks, or specifically April 23. While I am personally waiting patiently for the English version, I have been joining in the hype towards the Japanese release because of the latest opening movie released in the Square Enix official Youtube channel, featuring a new song by ryo featuring chelly! This doesn’t come off as much of a surprise, since ryo himself is the game’s music composer, replacing REVO.

The trailer features Yu Zeneolsia with his fellow party members: Magnolia Arch, Jean & Nikolai of the Three Musketeers, and the returning Edea & Tiz with refreshing new appearances. Agnes will still be playing a major role in Bravely Second, albeit not as a playable character. Emperor Oblivion who will serve as the new main antagonist is also featured alongside his fairy Anne, who might remind us of Airy.


The song, titled “Great Distance”, will be released in May 20. Along with revealing the release date, SME’s official supercell page also gave several new announcements, which I have translated below:
