Granblue Fantasy: Versus
Granblue Fantasy Versus is some of the most fun I've had with a fighting game in a long time, and one I'd recommend players with varying skill levels.
As the west's first peek into the Granblue universe's gaming side, Granblue Fantasy Versus is a fighter that can stand alongside its peers in terms of depth, but in addition offers a simplistic control scheme that even those less familiar to the genre can get to grips with quickly and easily. RPG mode is a unique way to to learn the basics of fighting, even if this and other modes could have been a bit more fleshed out.
Granblue Fantasy: Versus is a top-quality fighting game. It looks great and has carved out its own niche, introducing a style of gameplay that is both familiar and very new. The varied cast of characters and fun RPG mode enhance what is an already excellent package. A great game both for less experienced fighting game players who are interested in the genre, and an essential for those looking to conquer yet another game in ranked mode.
A solid game on all accounts, Granblue Fantasy Versus is a great fighting game to play with your friends, whether you're lacking in skill, or happen to be a total pro.
Arc System Works has produced another great anime fighter that does its job of bringing in beginner fighting game players and showcasing Granblue Fantasy to a larger player base. Its graphics are amazing, its orchestral soundtrack is pleasing on the ears, and its deceptively simple combat mechanics offers a limitless serving of entertainment.
Granblue Fantasy Versus is a fighting game with simple and pleasant mechanics. The graphics are great and the soundtrack as well. Its RPG mode is a little bland, with a weak story, but with good boss battles. The rest of the game is what you would expect from a fighting title: Arcade Mode, ways to learn the basics, Gallery, etc. Online mode, like most Japanese games, is a delay-based netcode, something developers need to rethink about not using anymore.

This might be the first time in which a fighting game with such a horrendously small roster size hasn’t infuriated me to death. Granblue Fantasy: Versus‘ single player campaign is so lengthy and enjoyable that it made me almost forget that there’s also an arcade mode in it. It felt more like a side-scrolling action RPG first with an arcade fighting mode added as a bonus, and I’m fine with that.
Though light on characters and story, Granblue Fantasy: Versus is another excellent addition to the ArcSys family.
Even with its issues, Granblue Fantasy Versus is still hands-down one of the most beautiful and accessible fighters I’ve played in years, and with its prominent place on the mainstage at EVO 2020 and other major fighting game tournaments, I can’t wait to see how Cygames and Arc System Works support it throughout the year.
Arc System Works has done it again. Granblue Fantasy Versus is a fantastic-feeling fighting game that's jaw-droppingly gorgeous at times.
