Following the reveal of the upcoming DLC for Granblue Fantasy Versus at Granblue Fes 2019, publisher Xseed Games followed up with new screenshots and info for the western markets.
We get an official description and screenshots for the RPG Mode’s final boss Chaos Bringer, who will be unlockable via gameplay or you can purchase him via DLC if you prefer not to bother.
More information and images are about Narmaya, Soriz, and Djeeta, who will populate the rest of the first Character pass, and Belial, who will usher the second.
Let’s start with the images.
And here’s all the related info directly from the press release. It’s worth reminding that one last character remains to be revealed for the first season pass, and they will be unveiled in March by Cygames via Granblue Fantasy’s 6th-anniversary livestream.
Chaos Bringer was revealed as the RPG mode final boss of Granblue Fantasy: Versus. This mysterious “hooded figure” was featured in the original Granblue Fantasy’s popular “What Makes the Sky Blue” series of events. Upon the game’s release, he will appear only as a boss, however, an update planned for late February will add him as a playable character that can be unlocked by completing the RPG mode. Chaos Bringer will also be unlockable by purchasing the season 1 DLC, without completing the RPG mode.
One of the Astrals who invaded the Sky Realm thousands of years ago, long before the War broke out. Chaos Bringer was sealed away in Pandemonium until the fallen angel Belial released him from his forced slumber. Obsessed with becoming the supreme being, he wields a substance capable of slaying immortals—chaos matter. And at his beck and call is Avatar, the manifestation of destruction. Sky Realm, Astral Realm, Crimson Horizon—his hands will mold these realms into one so that he may stand above all in creation.
Narmaya: Fighting style
With Narmaya, players can switch between two different stances—Dawnfly and Freeflutter— each of which allows her to use different skills, for a highly technical fighting style.
Soriz: Fighting style
An excellent swarmer. His skills will be enhanced by activating his super skybound art. (Super skybound art is a super move that can be activated when the charge gauge is full, and HP is 30% or lower.)
Djeeta: Fighting style
Like Gran, Djeeta offers a simple, well-rounded play style.
Despite the fact that the Granblue Fantasy mobile game isn’t officially available in the west, looks like Xseed and Cygames will still offer the bonuses that you can unlock in it by purchasing and playing Versus and its DLC.
