Cygames has announced that their upcoming action JRPG Granblue Fantasy: Relink will have a playtime of 20 hours for just the main story. Additionally, those who seek to complete quests alongside the main story and after clearing it should expect around 40 hours of content.
UPDATE: An unspecified “additional scenario” is unlocked after completing a series of quests after the credits roll for the main story. This is expected to make the total playtime roughly 40 hours.
However, upon completing all story content, more challenging quests will be unlocked, implementing a gameplay loop where more powerful foes and equipment can be discovered. Completionists who seek to do everything Granblue Fantasy: Relink offers should expect to spend at least 100 hours of playtime.
We’ll keep you all updated on the eventual release of Granblue Fantasy: Relink.
Granblue Fantasy: Relink will feature a Full Assist mode for accessibility purposes, where all actions are performed automatically as you move the control stick. This will be usable for the entire story.
Alternatively, there will be a standard Assist Mode where combos are performed with a single button, auto-heal, auto-guard, and auto-dash are enabled, map navigation is assisted, and Skills, Skybound Arts, and Link Attacks are utilized when their respective conditions are met. Performing Skybounf Arts in succession will activate Chain Bursts.
Quests, taken with a party of four, arrive in various types, like boss battles, time attack, and survival. There are over 100 available, with some intended as post-game content. Players can customize their characters in multiple ways, including changeable weapons and sigils, as well as unlockable mastery nodes for new skills and enhanced stats. Characters can have four skills equipped at a given time.
Granblue Fantasy: Relink takes place in Zegagrande Kingdom, where primal beasts act as island guardians, and a secretive organization known as the Church of Avia does who knows what. The protagonists end up contending with these factors, with the fate of the Sky Realm hanging in the balance.
Granblue Fantasy: Relink will launch worldwide for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam on February 1, 2024.
