It's wild to fathom how massive the Granblue Fantasy franchise is in Japan. Millions of players have flocked to the mobile/web browser gacha game that incorporates turn-based combat, a gorgeous anime art style, and a cast of lovable characters that proved popular enough to be featured in an anime series & a series spinoff fighting game called Granblue Fantasy: Versus. Speaking of series spinoff games, fans have been patiently waiting for an epic action RPG based in the world of Granblue Fantasy ever since it was first announced in 2016. What was first presented as a development collaboration project between PlatinumGames and Cygames has now turned into a solo project for the studio that made the IP so popular in the first place. After a series of heartbreaking delays and one of the longest waits for a game we can remember in recent memory, we'll finally get to experience Granblue Fantasy: Relink in 2024! Before diving into that upcoming anime-stylized action RPG experience, we're going to detail its release date, story, playable characters, and gameplay mechanics.
