Interestingly, he showcased a glimpse of off-screen gameplay in which we can see Gran, Catalina, Lancelot, and Percival in the party, with Lyria who appears to be following along as an NPC.
While this isn’t much, it’s an extra look at the game that never hurts since Cygames had mentioned that the next reveal would come in December at Granblue Fantasy Fes.
You can watch it below.
Incidentally, there was pretty much no news for Granblue Fantasy Versus itself besides the announcement of the online Granblue Fantasy Versus Community League (which you can also see below right after the Relink segment).
Incidentally, the tournament at EVO 2022 was won by Gamera, who defeated Tororo in the grand finals coming from the losers’ bracket.
Things have been slow in terms of news for Granblue Fantasy Versus since Granblue Fes 2021 in December, which is not too surprising considering that the game is now over two years old.
Yet, the inclusion as a main event at EVO 2022 may have provided Cygames’ and Arc System Woks’ fighting game with a new lease on life, which it much needed considering that it launched at the worst possible time for a title with competitive ambitions due to the pandemic.
We’ll have to see whether Cygames will capitalize on this chance during the upcoming months.
