Cygames and Arc System Works have shared a new trailer for their upcoming refined 2D fighter, Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising, introducing Siegfried. This new combatant is a mid-range fighter, using his sword to keep foes afar. Further, him consuming his own health causes him to enter Manigance, a state temporarily enhancing his strength.
The companies also confirmed that Kazuhiko Inoue would voice him in Japanese and Jordan Reynolds in English. Moreover, the game’s online beta test was confirmed for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in May 2023.

Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising features the original 24-character Versus cast alongside several new ones. A newly implemented mechanic will be Ultimate Skills, which are more powerful iterations of Versus’ Plus Skills, enabling new combo extension opportunities and ways to punish opponents. Additionally, a new Story mode will be available in a more convenient fashion, abolishing item collection, growth elements, and some quest battles. It will be an abridged version of Versus’ 50 RPG Mode chapters, too.
This release will also feature enhanced graphics, an improved online lobby with a vaster environment, and Grand Bruise Legends! Mode, comprising minigames such as obstacle course Rising Royale and Gold Brick Hoarder.
Additionally, Anila was previously introduced.
