The iOS and Android RPG will be released in English sometime in March of 2016. Further details weren’t confirmed.

An anime adaptation for the game was announced, following the previous confirmation that a cross-media project for the IP was in the works. The anime will be produced by A-1 Productions, although a release for the anime was also not confirmed.

    Let’s just hope they put more effort into it than with Gunslinger Stratos’ adaptation.

    Can’t say I’m terribly interested in the game, but I do enjoy its artwork.

    Not sure if the game even needs a translation.

    I actually learned recently that it’s probably not actually going to be a separate Western release but actually just an English option for the Japanese version. This update still hasn’t happened, so it will probably happen the last update this month. I’ve been playing the Japanese version and getting by just fine but it would be convenient to have English.

    Yes, you right. I recommend to visit every day site “gbf-english proboards” (write in google). It has all the players. <— In this site have chat, and you can ask anythin and they will tell you right away. And everyday i read official Japanes twitter Granblue (translate in google).
    Sorry for my bad English.
    Have a nice day/night!

    Soon™ in March™

    I heard that last week was an event week (something like 10 free draws daily or something crazy like that). I can’t play in Japanese, I hope they start a new server or the new players will have a huge disadvantage.
