Granblue Fantasy: Versus Trailer Highlights Fighters Through Pulse-Pounding Action, Reveals Surprise Dub
Granblue Fantasy: Versus gets a new launch date announcement trailer that shows off the current roster, more gameplay, story beats, and the surprise dub.
XSEED, Cygames, and Arc System Works released a brand new trailer for their upcoming fighting game Granblue Fantasy: Versus. It highlights all the fighters shown thus far through its frenetic gameplay as well as revealing a surprise — the game will have a fully voiced English dub. Said sub is quite excellent, capturing the personality of each character well:
Interestingly enough, Granblue Fantasy: Versus is releasing on March 3rd, the same day that Final Fantasy VII: Remake was supposed to before it was pushed back to April 10th. I wonder if that was intentional on the development and publisher’s part? And if you’re interested in seeing more of the the game, you can check out a new batch of screenshots here that showcases the cast and their specials.
The West will be getting the previously revealed Premium Edition, which is available now for preorder on Amazon, along with the standard edition:
XSEED also confirmed that players will get a download code for the mobile and web browser versions of Granblue Fantasy no matter what version of Versus they get.
Developed by Arc System Works, Granblue Fantasy Versus takes the characters you know and love from the hit mobile game, and puts them in a traditional fighting game. As this is the studio that developed fighting games like Guilty Gear Xrd and Dragon Ball FighterZ, Granblue Fantasy Versus has fantastic visuals that look as if they jumped straight out of an anime. Other characters have been revealed recently such as Zeta and Vaseraga as well as Ferry the Spirit Maiden.
Meanwhile check out the other character trailers for Metera, Percival, Lowain, and Ladiva among others. You can also read our interview with Cygames’ Kenichiro Takaki who discusses the response to Versus’ beta and more.
In other interesting news, the team working on another title for the franchise — Granblue Fantasy: Relink — is now as big as when Platinum Games worked on the game and it still growing.
