Granblue Fantasy: Versus Rising Coming in 2023


Today, Cygames and Arc System Works announced a sequel to Granblue Fantasy Versus titled Granblue Fantasy: Versus Rising. The new title will feature enhanced visuals like character models / faces to more closely replicate the art style of Granblue Fantasy, in addition to new characters and stages, new story content, rollback netcode, and crossplay. The announce trailer below confirms GBFVR is coming to Steam, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4 with crossplay in 2023. A new online lobby mode called "Grand Bruise Legends" featuring mini-games was also revealed (scroll down for more on that).

Directly below are the first official promotional images for Granblue Fantasy: Versus Rising revealing the game's logo and outlining the new content returning players can expect. Rising will feature a "simplified" version of RPG mode in an all-new Story Mode, including all chapters from the first GBVS as well as an original saga. The trailer suggests that the original GBVS roster, including all previous DLC characters, will return in Rising.

Arc System Works confirmed the original Granblue Fantasy Versus will receive one final update (Version 2.85) adding minor gameplay adjustments, changes for some characters, and boss music from RPG Mode added to Music Select. 
[UPDATE] A separate trailer reveals "Grand Bruise Legends" a new lobby mode for Granblue Fantasy: Versus Rising. The updated online lobby system allows players to take a break from fighting and take control of chibi avatars (similar to the first game, but different in more ways than one). Besides exploring the lobbies, player avatars can now compete in various mini games some taking inspiration from the massive multiplayer battle royale obstacle course game, Fall Guys.









Besides the 2023 release window, neither
