XSEED Games announced plans to publish the Cygames and Arc System Works fight Granblue Fantasy: Versus on PlayStation 4 in 2019.
“Granblue Fantasy: Versus combines great fighting gameplay with outstanding anime-style characters and stories, and we’re excited to give North American players a fresh opportunity to test their fighting skills,” said Ken Berry, Executive Vice President of XSEED Games. “While this is a title of paramount interest to the many fans of the Granblue Fantasy universe, the game has something to offer for both casual and serious fighting game enthusiasts.”
Granblue Fantasy Versus will be the first fighter featuring these characters. The game will be a 2D fighter with characters representing anime versions of themselves across various stages. The developer states that this will be a “new era of fighting games” with new balance systems and focus on sound and visuals.
“We are working hard to bring our new fighting game set in the rich world of Granblue Fantasy to players in North America,” said Yuito Kimura, Executive Director of Cygames, Inc. “We look forward to sharing more about our vision at E3 2019.”
Playable characters in Granblue Fantasy Versus include Gran, Katalina, Charlotta, Lancelot, and Ferry. More characters will most likely be announced closer to launch, but there is no word on the size of the roster.
