12.22.19 - 12:46 AM


Granblue Fantasy Fes 2019 was held over the weekend of December 13th, giving us an onslaught of new information for Granblue Fantasy: Versus! Developed by Arc System Works and Cygames, this fighting game/RPG hybrid includes a familiar final boss along with several planned DLC characters!

Granblue Fantasy: Versus | Chaos Bringer

First of all, Chaos Bringer was revealed to be the game's final boss in the RPG mode. Starting in late February, players will be able to unlock the hooded man by either completing the RPG mode or by purchasing the season 1 DLC. Avid Granblue Fantasy mobile players might recall Chaos Bringer in the event series "What Makes the Sky Blue."

Granblue Fantasy: Versus | Belial

Next up, another villain to watch out for is the fallen angel, Belial! Wielding both the immortal-killing chaos matter and his destructive Avatar, Belial freed Chaos Bringer from Pandemonium and wishes to merge all of the realms into his own world! He is a character featured in the game's RPG mode.

For Granblue Fantasy: Versus' first season of DLC, five characters have been announced. Besides the already mentioned Chaos Bringer, the following fighters will be joining the battle: Narmaya, Soriz, and Djeeta. The fifth character will be revealed during a live stream for the mobile game's 6th anniversary in March 2020.

Granblue Fantasy: Versus | Narmaya

For the more skilled fighting game fans, Narmaya offers two different fighting styles: Dawnfly and Freeflutter.

Granblue Fantasy: Versus | Soriz

Soriz is a fighter you do NOT want to mess with. Once he activates his super skybound art, his skills are enhanced.

Granblue Fantasy: Versus | Djeeta

Last but certainly not least, Djeeta is a more balanced fighter and easy to play.

But wait! Playing Granblue Fantasy: Versus will also unlock special rewards and bonuses for the mobile game! Completing the RPG mode nets players 5,000 crystals in the mobile game. Beating it on Hard difficulty unlocks the adorable Vyrn costume for the protagonist, but players who already own the costume will receive 3,000 crystals instead.

Purchase of any DLC characters will land you different rewards. Chaos Bringer grants players a weapon that isn't available in the game yet. Narmaya and Soriz will give players outfits based on those respective characters. However, having Djeeta will give the main character a special class outfit. Each reward can only be redeemed once per Granblue Fantasy account.

Xseed Games describes Granblue Fantasy: Versus:

In Granblue Fantasy: Versus, power, skill, and spirit collide in a quest to find the true champion of the ring. Players can take on AI opponents or fight against human opponents in local or online two-player matches.
