When Bravely Default: For The Sequel makes its debut, one of the new features it includes will be the ability to stop time during battles - assuming you're either very patient or willing to shell out cash for the privilege.

This new system, dubbed "Bravely Second," allows for the aforementioned time-stopping antics, but relies on your current level of "SP." Once you've used your special power, your SP decreases. You can gain more SP by putting your 3DS into sleep mode, though as Siliconera points out, this is a slow process, with one SP point being added for every eight hours of idle time. If you'd rather not wait however, there's always the option to purchase potions from the Nintendo 3DS eShop that refill your SP.

It's currently unclear how expensive these potions will be, but producer Tomoya Asano assures fans that this system is a boon, rather than a hindrance. "Bravely Second isn't a de-merit, but a system that gives players an advantage. It's convenient, and very powerful," Asano told Siliconera.

Bravely Default: For The Second is slated for release in Japan this December. Currently there is no word on when or if the handheld roleplaying game will hit Western territories.
