Cygames has announced two more playable characters for Granblue Fantasy: Versus.
Both Zeta and Vaseraga will be playable in the upcoming Arc System Works-developed fighting game. Featured above, you can find a new trailer introducing both characters.
Cygames also revealed the game’s official Japanese box art:
Here’s a rundown on both characters:
Zeta (voice by Kana Hanazawa)
“Spear of Arvess! Show me your strength!”
This fearless fighter belongs to the Society, an organization which hunts primal beasts. She has formed a contract with the seal weapon known as the Spear of Arvess.
She and her partner Vaseraga are charged by the Society with a variety of missions. Though the two often butt heads, each has the other’s complete trust. Perhaps it is the contrast between Zeta’s upbeat but stubborn personality and Vaseraga’s unshakable calm which makes them such good partners.
In addition to the fierce mid-range spear attacks which keep her enemies at a distance, Zeta also has a talent for lightning-quick aerial combat.
Vaseraga (voice by Fumihiko Tachiki)
“Great Scythe Grynoth! Let your soul shape my blade!”
This towering Draph warrior belongs to the Society, an organization which hunts primal beasts. He has formed a contract with the seal weapon known as Great Scythe Grynoth.
The intimidating size of his blade and his immunity to pain sap opponents of their will to fight. Though his somber bearing and curt speech can make him seem unapproachable, he is in fact a calm, kind person who will always go out of his way to help those in need.
His indomitable spirit, raw physical might, and inability to feel pain make for an overwhelmingly aggressive fighting style. Opponents are advised to approach with extreme caution.
