The Bravely Default series has a tradition of secret twists that break the fourth wall and require a little pluck and ingenuity to solve. Bravely Default 2 is no exception, hiding the true ending behind a series of riddles and clues. If you’re looking to 100% the game with all of the jobs unlocked and see the true ending to the quest. Bravely Default 2 spoilers follow.
How To Reach Chapter 6
If you’re wondering how to reach the true ending, you’ve probably already gotten to Chapter 5 and defeated the fake-out final boss, the fairy Edna. The game makes it fairly clear that there’s more story to uncover, with a cliffhanger of an ending that leaves the major threat still unresolved. Edna tapped the power of an all-consuming darkness called Night’s Nexus as part of her plan, and even after defeating Edna, the Nexus lives on. Gloria sacrifices herself at this point in the game, leading to the game’s credits.
However, once you save your cleared game file and reload it, you’ll see a new cutscene that drops a conspicuous clue about what you should do next. Instead of moving forward to confront Edna, your party can conclude that there’s something more to be done and leave the area. That will trigger the start of the game’s actual finale, Chapter 6.
