Granblue Fantasy: Versus Ver. 1.40 Update:
In addition to adding new RPG mode episodes which take place after the main story, Granblue Fantasy: Versus Ver. 1.40 will feature two new limited-time game modes:
- Boss Battle Time Attack – Players compete against each other to see who can take down bosses faster
- GBVS: Blitz – A limited time Ranked Battle event
Players will earn a code for 1,000 crystals after clearing episode 45 of the main quest. Start dates for the Boss Battle Time Attack and GBVS: Blitz modes will be announced in-game. GBVS fans should look forward to all of the new content included in this update, such as a fated meeting between Gran and Djeeta and a new primal beast boss battle!
Granblue Fantasy: Versus Season 2 DLC Characters:
Granblue Fantasy: Versus Season 2 DLC characters will start arriving with Belial on September 23!
The popular Granblue Fantasy villain Belial may fool some players with his deceptively standard moveset, but his unique abilities and tricky neutral fighting style will take down unsuspecting challengers. Cagliostro will join the Season 2 roster in October, with additional details to follow. The Japanese voice actors for Belial and Cagliostro are Yoshimasa Hosoya and Sakura Tange. English language voiceovers will be delayed and won’t be included when the characters release due to issues related to COVID-19.
