Square Enix has another feather in its cap this morning: Bravely Default II, the confusingly-numbered third game in the Bravely series, has officially crossed the million-seller threshold.

The original Bravely Default also crossed this illustrious mark, while its actual sequel Bravely Second sold roughly 700,000. This is despite the critical reception for BDII being even more mixed than the already mixed (but generally positive) reception for the first few games. Our own review was less than glowing, though apparently marketing and the Nintendo Switch’s expanded playerbase helped Squeenix land a winner.
Time will see if we get a Bravely Third or Bravely Default III, though it seems likely, if not inevitable. We’ll see what form it ends up taking when the time comes.
