Today, during the Granblue Fantasy 5th anniversary broadcast, Cygames revealed a new character for Granblue Fantasy Versus.
Looks like we’re getting the roughneck Lowain, who will also come with his mates Tomoi and Elsam as assists. If you’re unfamiliar with him, you can read an official description below.
“A free spirit who was all about his part-time job, a good gab sesh with the boys, and a dash of adventure every now and then. That all changed when Katalina visited the restaurant where he worked. It was infatuation at first sight. Determined to follow her, he quit his job and began a new life as the cook on Gran’s crew.
He’s a fair hand with a dagger, but with his buddies Elsam and Tomoi there to run interference and baffle opponents, he can really ruin an enemy’s day… probably.”
Incidentally, his weapon was visible in the game’s logo, which means that the other characters whose blades are displayed alongside Lowain’s might really appear in the game as we theorized last year.
