Japanese game developer Cygames has announced Granblue Fantasy: Versus, a new beat ‘em up based on its Granblue Fantasy series, and revealed a new video for its forthcoming PS4 action RPG.
Granblue Fantasy: Versus is a classic beat ‘em up being developed by Arc System Works under the direction of Cygames. Designed to appeal to fighting game novices and veterans alike, it marries the characters, artwork, and story from one of Japan’s most fervently loved RPGs with a classic beat ‘em up design courtesy of one of the world’s greatest fighting game developers. With characters from the original Granblue Fantasy series, such as Gran, Katalina, and Lancelot, the game will be a must-have for existing fans, while providing a new way for western gamers to experience the series for the first time.
Each character will boast a full suite of special moves based on their abilities from the original game and while Versus will maintain the beautiful visual design of the original series, it will also introduce a host of new features that will usher in a new era for fighting games.
