Granblue Fantasy: Relink Gets New Media, Details
Cygames held its Granblue Fantasy Fes 2022–2023 event, during which it provided new media and information for Granblue Fantasy: Relink. The company has not yet announced a release date for the game — which is in development for PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 — but it is planned for release internationally in 2023.
Granblue Fantasy: Relink is an action RPG based on Cygames’ Granblue Fantasy smartphone title. Relink follows the male or female main protagonist (known as Gran / Djeeta) after they come to the rescue of Lyria, a mysterious young girl who has escaped from the Erste Empire, and end up with Lyria’s life force linked to theirs.
The event unveiled some new characters for the game. Antagonist Id (voiced by Kenjiro Tsuda / Robbie Daymond) is a powerful knight and one of three generals of Avia who the player encounters. Meanwhile, Carlotta (Kaori Nazuka / Cristina “Vee” Valenzuela) is an ally and the captain of an order of holy knights. Yodarha (Shigeru Chiba / Peter Kelamis) is another ally and a world-renowned swordsman who uses an illusory blade, but now spends most of his time fishing. Narmaya (MAO / Brianna Knickerbocker) is the final new ally revealed, and is a sword master known for her elegant styles.
Granblue Fantasy: Relink will include an Assist Mode designed for beginners and those who want to play casually. It lets players perform combos automatically using a single button; will automatically heal, guard, dash, and unleash special attacks; and includes automated map navigation. There will also be a Full Assist Mode, where players only need to move the directional stick, with all actions performed automatically.
