Granblue Fantasy Versus is an upcoming 2.5D fighting being developed by Arc System Works for the PlayStation 4. It is based on the RPG Granblue Fantasy, and is set to be released in Japan by Cygames in February 2020, and in North America by XSEED Games at a later date. It will also have an English dub.
Granblue Fantasy Versus is mainly a fighting game where the goal is to eliminate the enemy by using a combination of attacks to empty their opponent's life bar enough times to win the match. In an attempt to give newer players an easier time to master the game, each character has "Skybound Arts." Each Skybound Art corresponds to a skill that the character is able to use in the main Granblue Fantasy game. Each skill can be triggered with a simple button press, but the player will have to wait for a short period for the used Skybound Art to cool down before they can use it again. However, if the player uses a more advanced combination of movement and button presses to launch the attack, the cooldown time on the skill will be shortened.
The game also contains a story mode. Unlike the main fighting game mode, the story mode will be more of a side-scrolling, beat 'em up, action role-playing game. The story mode is slated to include exclusive bosses and minions to battle, setting weapon gears, and a co-op mode.
