Cygames shared a new batch of gameplay for Granblue Fantasy Project Re: Link.

Featured above, the new gameplay for the Platinum Games-developed PlayStation 4 game was shown off as this year’s Granblue Fantasy Fes (Editor’s Note: Recording of the stream is via Dualshockers).

Some new screenshots for the game were also shared over on its official website:

    Looks like it might scratch my Star Ocean itch. I’m in.

  • The path to rule is only wide

    Finally I can PLAY a fucking Granblue game instead of tapping at it on my phone screen

  • No_Good_Names_Ever
  • I may get it on PC when it comes to USA.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Even with them trying to figure out how to connect the two games so you have to play both for some form of content?

  • I don’t do mobile games.

  • The path to rule is only wide

    Who said it’s coming to PC?

  • Who said it isn’t?

  • FrankieL

    OMG, that was insane! Platinum knocking it out of the park once again. This better get fast tracked for a localization. Want to play it now!

  • hot damn this looks sweet!
    I really hope this comes West!

  • Miguel Angel Opazo Arancibia

    History, common knowledge, etc, etc.

  • Gigaknight

    I do not know why that Metera is in the thumbnail (I hope it’s just fanart…), but if she’s somehow in the game while Narmaya isn’t, I’ll be incensed.

    That said, this sort of thing is what Platinum does. I’m not surprised in the least; Platinum’s reputation for good work already precedes it.

  • Uranus

    The fact that it is referred to as a PS4 game too.

  • Exien

    Yeah all these salty fanboys act like it will never comes to PC, but we all know that the PS4 version is for japan only at the moment. When they announce the western version i bet we get a PC version maybe not at the same time, but just look at Nioh and all the other PS4 “Exclusives”. When it is not done by 1st Party studio from Sony they will do a PC version like every other.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I’m not exactly a mobileshitter so I’m unfamiliar with Granblue but this looks cool. I’m in the mood for another ARPG from Platinum after NieR:A.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    What history and common knowledge? A bunch of weeb games have been getting PC ports over the last 2-3 years and Platinum has plenty of their games on PC.

  • Slartibartfast

    All it needs is Cagliostro and a PC port, and it’ll be perfect.

  • EH7

    The phone game too ages to be localized though…

  • Chocolate ISISCream

    Shame PG is wasting their time on this, but more PS4 exclusives are always great.

  • Cats736

    It was also censored if you chose the English option.

  • Malascus

    Same with blue reflection, tokyo xanadu, all the sao games etc etc.

    All were ps4/psvita games in japan but eventually got a pc release in the west.

    The japanese have noticed that steams exists.

  • ComX

    Looks like it might scratch my Star Ocean itch. I’m in.

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    Timed :)

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    Because that hasn’t changed literally dozens of times in the last 2 years…

  • History of the mobile only games?

  • Clamedeus

    I can’t wait for this.

  • Bitterbear

    It’s a Loot Box Gachapon fuckfest that makes the 2017 Star Wars Battlefront 2 game look as good as the 2005 Star Wars Battlefront 2 one.

  • A Loli 42 penises

    up until this point, all i’ve seen of Granblue Fantasy was hentai (mostly because I have NEGATIVE interest in Mobile games).

  • Kain Yusanagi

    Plenty PS exclusives stay exclusive- or at least remain console exclusive, never jumping to PC as well. You have to look at who was behind them, rather than where they came out.

  • Eldhin Hellknight

    pretty sure Cygames will try to censor something if there’s a western release

  • VLOCKUP

    Yeah. Star Wars and Overwatch and many other loot box games are just guppies compared to Gacha games.

    At least Gacha games are free. Many Triple Ayy games are paid first, gacha later.

    Cygames takes advantage of their players with that one character is a dick move. People still support it though.

  • Makoto

    Looks nice ! I hope they won’t skip too much on the lore and world history because of the mobile game.

  • True Goddess Reincarnation

    Same. I saw plenty of hentai many years before I even knew it was a game…

  • A Loli 42 penises
  • True Goddess Reincarnation

    Yes she is one of the few human characters more endowed than the cow girls. Here is a chart cause it is totally related! https://i.imgur.com/cbadhmz.jpg

  • Slartibartfast

    And yet, despite that, these gacha games have never outright lied to us about EXP gains like Bungie has with Destiny 2.

  • sanic

    Might be cool.
