Granblue Fantasy: Versus, reviewed by Mitchell Saltzman on PlayStation 4.

Following in the footsteps of BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, Granblue Fantasy: Versus is one of Arc System Works’ most approachable fighting games yet. It smartly balances considerations for more casual fighting game players without ever stepping on the toes of its hardcore audience. The result is a more grounded and neutral-heavy ArcSys alternative with all of the usual ArcSys flair, which is a fantastic breath of fresh air. Its RPG mode is dull, and its 11 character roster is way too light, but all things considered, Granblue Fantasy: Versus feels like it could be the start of another special 2D fighting franchise.

  1. Though an ardent Guilty Gear fan, this game didn't initially grab me – perhaps due to Granblue's relatively tame (though still competent) character design, or my lack of experience with the franchise.
    I'm certainly eager to jump in after this review however!
    Also – supers on a cool down… what a sensible yet novel addition to the fighting genre ^^

  2. It's honestly nice to hear the english speaking actors from the anime are back for the game's dub. I appreciate that they went to that level of effort for the western market. I hope this Arcsys/Cygames joint venture continues long enough to see a Blazblue CF number of characters. I like the look and Katalina is of course, best girl, but man I definitely want to see more fighters and waifus in there.
