Whenever you save your game, Bravely Default II offers 9 different save slots you can save in. There is also one Auto-Save slot that the game uses when it periodically saves the game for you. But you can use any of these 9 slots for your playthroughs.

Overwrite Save Files

When selecting a save slot that already contains another save file, the game will alert you with a warning that overwriting that save slot will delete the progress recorded on that file so far.

This can be one of the ways for you to set up a new save file that might have different progress than your other save files.

No In-Game Option to Delete Save Files

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a way to delete game files from within the game itself. We recommend using new save slots or overwriting other slots if you desire to have a new playthrough.

An alternate solution we can suggest is to delete the game's data from your Nintendo Switch. However, keep in mind that this method will delete all of your Bravely Default 2 save files, not just one. If you insist on doing so, you may follow the guide below.
