Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising Details Balance & System Changes

Cygames recently hosted a lengthy broadcast delving into the balance and system changes players can expect from Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising. The director of the Granblue Fantasy series, Tetsuya Fukuhara, helmed the event. Five Japanese fans of the game were invited to test out these alterations.

Alongside on-screen explanations, images summarizing the many changes were also provided, viewable via our gallery below:

Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising features the original 24-character Versus cast alongside several new ones. A newly implemented mechanic will be Ultimate Skills, which are more powerful iterations of Versus’ Plus Skills, enabling new combo extension opportunities and ways to punish opponents. Additionally, a new Story mode will be available in a more convenient fashion, abolishing item collection, growth elements, and some quest battles. It will be an abridged version of Versus’ 50 RPG Mode chapters, too.

This release will also feature enhanced graphics, an improved online lobby with a vaster environment, and Grand Bruise Legends! Mode, comprising minigames such as obstacle course Rising Royale and Gold Brick Hoarder.

You can view the full Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising broadcast detailing the system and balance alterations below. The second showcases new gameplay footage.

Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam on November 30, 2023.
