The period around Christmas and the New Year is pretty much the best to boost your teams in Granblue Fantasy.
Like every year, Cygames has launched the New Year event, which comes with the now traditional Gachapin Roulette.
Basically, once a day from today until January 5, you’ll be prompted to spin the wheel, granting between 10 and 200 free gacha rolls for that day.
This is a boost compared to previous versions, which only went up to 100. On top of that, on January 5 you have a guaranteed 200 result.
You can also get a “Gachapin Frenzy” result (which also activates if you get too many mediocre results in a row). If that happens, you’ll be able to roll up to 300 times (30 x 10 rolls) until you get an SSR draw.
If that isn’t enough, Gachapin Frenzy can turn into Mukku Mode, increasing your chances further with additional free rolls.
Lastly, every time you get a result on the wheel that isn’t 200 or Gachapin Frenzy, you have a chance to activate Gachapin Janken (rock paper scissors), which let you try to beat Gachapin to double your free rolls.
On top of this, during the event, there are a lot of further advantages, like the ability to do quests for half the points, increased rewards, and much more.
As I mentioned above, this is the best time of the year to begin playing. If you’d like to give it a spin (quite literally), you can read my detailed guide on how to create an account, install the game, and play in English.
It’s available for iOS, Android, and PC via browsers. While it hasn’t been released officially in the west, it does have an English localization, so getting started is easy regardless of your location.
If you’re interested in console games, the franchise is gettuing a fighting game titled Granblue Fantasy Versus, you can read my recent hands-on preview and our interview with game director Tetsuya Fukuhara.
You can a look at the upcoming DLC, a trailer showcasing the soundtrack, another starring Zeta and Vaseraga, , one revealing Metera, one showing off the RPG Mode, a few screenshots from a few months ago, another trailer revealing Percival and his first gameplay, another video announcing the previous character Ladiva, and the video that came before featuring Lowain.
