Prior illustrations may suggest that the Bravely series might eventually be ported over to the Nintendo Switch. One tweet from September 2017 simply shows Tiz guiding the way for the new travelers. At Christmas time, another tweet appeared showing Edea holding two Joy-Cons and the Nintendo Switch system in a Christmas stocking.
