After a lengthy wait, fans of Granblue Fantasy can finally get a glimpse of the highly-anticipated game, Relink, in its second official trailer, recently released by developer CyGames. While an official release date for the game has yet to be announced, the trailer does reveal a vague release window of 2023.
The development of Relink has been a long and winding journey, with the game first being announced in August 2016 by PlatinumGames.
However, after several years of development, the project was eventually passed on entirely to CyGames. Despite the change in development studios, fans have been eagerly awaiting the game’s release for nearly seven years.
Though there is still no official release date, producer Tetsuya Fukuhara has stated that development on the game is practically completed.
This suggests that we can expect to see the game arrive during 2023, though it’s hard to say exactly when within the year it will be released. Fans will have to stay tuned for further information on the game’s release.
Granblue Fantasy: Relink is an action RPG that combines the classic charm of its reference universe with a combat system that promises to be both deep and engaging.
This is thanks in part to the extensive work put in by PlatinumGames, known for their skill in creating dynamic and polished gameplay experiences.
Players will take on the role of the main character, Narmaya, as seen in the recent trailer release. Alongside Narmaya, players will be able to recruit a diverse cast of allies, each with their unique abilities and fighting styles.
One such ally is Charlotta, the captain of an order of sacred knights, and Yodarha, a master of illusory arts. Narmaya herself is a swordswoman and martial arts expert with an exotic and oriental flair.
In addition to the diverse cast of characters, the game also features an Assist Mode that aims to make the game more accessible to players new to the genre.
This mode allows players to activate various automatic aids that can help players navigate the game’s mechanics and battles with ease.
