If you recognize the name Granblue Fantasy, it’s probably due to the long-running mobile RPG that this title stems from. Employing the experience of Arc System works, Grablue Fantasy Versus takes the core mechanics that the Japanese developer honed to perfection across titles like Blazblue and adds in an RPG twist that makes this Granblue game something unique. While it is set in the same mythical universe full of flying contraptions and heroes that made the Japanese RPG loved, the new interpretation introduces the story to a whole new audience on Playstation 4.

Fans who are interested in the RPG mode can pick u even more extras by besting the RPG element of this title to pick up extra crystals and a Vyrn Suit outfit, assuming you manage it on hard mode. Anybody who would rather grab some crystals from the game packs can grab both the Character Pass and Digital Deluxe sets in the PlayStation Store now.
