Worried that Bravely Second wasn’t coming to the West? Don’t worry another, well, second.

Nintendo revealed today in a Nintendo Direct Micro (a smaller version of its streaming events that showcase new games) that the anticipated sequel to the 3DS role-playing game, Bravely Default, will come to the west at some point in 2016. The Square Enix sequel came out in Japan on April 23.

The original Bravely Default came out on October 2011, but the U.S. didn’t get a chance to play it until February 2014. Once it did, it was one of the best-received 3DS and role-playing games of the year. I actually reviewed it back when it came out, and I loved it.

You can watch the entire Nintendo Direct Micro below. The bit with Bravely Second is at the end.
