Cygames is working on two Granblue Fantasy games for PS4, born from the developer’s popular mobile game. Granblue Fantasy Versus is a fighting game developed in collaboration with Arc System Works, while Granblue Fantasy Relink is an action-RPG.
Considering the nature of the games, both could benefit from high frame rate, so Twinfinite asked Director Tetsuya Fukuhara what we can expect during an interview at Cygames’ headquarters in Tokyo.
Fukuhara-san had reassuring words for fans of fighting games.
“For Versus, we’re definitely going to have 60 FPS. As a fighting game, we believe that’s a must.”
The goal for Relink is also 60 frames-per-second, but it isn’t finalized and might change depending on the tradeoff with visual fidelity.
“For Relink, at this point 60 FPS is our goal, but depending the final visuals, if we decide that 30 FPS will the best solution overall, it’s possible that we’ll choose 30 FPS.
That being said, as mentioned, our goal, for now, is to have it running at 60 FPS.”
Stay tuned for the full interview that will be published soon on Twinfinite, with a lot more information and juicy details.
