This action JRPG was announced all the way back in 2016. In 2018, we celebrated its localization announcement. That was back when it was being developed by Platinum, which it isn’t anymore.
Then in 2020, we discussed the shift in developers and upcoming news. It already seemed like ages since it had been announced, and now here we are in 2023 still waiting for a release date.
Well, maybe it’s finally time. It’s been announced that a new trailer will be shown in the Granblue Fes live stream tonight at 10:45 PM PT / tomorrow at 1:45 AM ET. The live stream will also include Granblue Fantasy Relink announcements. Here’s hoping that includes the release date.
Several new screenshots have also been shown, which you can see here in Gematsu’s article about it. A demo is available at Granblue Fes as well, which people can play for 10 minutes, so some gameplay impressions have started to appear online.
It’s been so long since Granblue Fantasy Relink was announced, it’s hard to believe we might finally get something substantial.
Although at the same time, the wait could be worse. Looking back at those old posts about Relink, I mentioned Atlus’s Project Re Fantasy twice and also brought up Monolith Soft’s unknown fantasy IP. We still haven’t seen anything about either of those. Maybe their time will come this year as well.
For now, we know we have Granblue Fantasy Relink news to look forward to tomorrow. Are you excited, or has the long wait dampened your enthusiasm?
Update: Still no release date, but the new trailer looks fantastic.---
