Our coverage of Granblue Fantasy: Versus continues, and more character trailers for the upcoming fighting game by Arc System Works have been released.

Before we get to the nitty gritty of three new Granblue Fantasy: Versus characters, it’s important to note that applications for the closed beta test are still up and running and will continue until May 25 at 2:00 a.m. EDT. You can check out the details here. The beta test will also act as a network stress test, and as such will only include online features. If you have already signed up for the beta test and successfully got in, here are the complete testing schedules.

  • May 31 from 5:00 a.m. EDT to 5:00 p.m. EDT
  • May 31 from 9:00 p.m. EDT to June 1 at 2:00 a.m. EDT
  • June 1 from 12:00 p.m. EDT to 5:00 p.m. EDT

With that out of the way, let’s take a loot at the three newest characters to get gameplay trailers, although it’s important to note that these videos aren’t officially released by Cygames or Arc System Works.

The first one, featuring Gran, comes courtesy of Team Spooky.

Gran is the titular character of the Granblue series. His adventure began when he received a letter from his father asking him to come to Estalucia, the Island of the Astrals. He travels across the skies with his flying lizard-like buddy named Vyrn and a mysterious girl named Lyria who saved his life.

Gran is somewhat of a beginner character for Granblue Fantasy: Versus. Most of his attacks are relatively straightforward and easy to control.

The second gameplay video, featuring Charlotta, comes courtesy of Justin Wong (footage starts at around 3:51).

Charlotta, although short in stature, is a Harvin knight who serves as the captain of the Lumiel Order of Holy Knights. She swings a shining blade called the Claíomh Solais, which is nearly the same size as her. Charlotta is a speedy character thanks to her smaller size, but her reach is still top-notch thanks to her large sword.

The third video, featuring Katalina, comes from Kayane.

Katalina is a former imperial knight who abandoned her post to protect Lyria. Katalina is now bound to Lyria, and journeys with her and Gran in their sky-bound adventures. Katalina excels at all-around fighting, including projectiles and anti-air capabilities. She also boasts a longer reach than most other characters in the roster.

Granblue Fantasy Versus is set to be released exclusively on the PlayStation 4 sometime in 2019.
