Granblue Fantasy Project Re:Link was announced during the Granblue Fantasy FES last year, being developed by PlatinumGames (which is known for stylish action titles like Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising). And yesterday, the latest information about the game has been announced, along with a new trailer, a new gameplay video, and title rebranding to Granblue Fantasy Relink.

According to the developers, the game is set in the same fictional realm as the original Granblue Fantasy but takes place in a different Skydom ('sky kingdom'). Some characters from the original game will also make an appearance.

As they said in a recent interview, "The story is set in Zega Grand, which made a little appearance in the main story. It was decided from the planning stages that the game would be set somewhere that wouldn’t require any prior knowledge so that those who’ve yet to play Granblue Fantasy can jump right into its story. Basically, as long as you know that 'Granblue Fantasy is a story set in the skies' then there shouldn’t be any problems."

There are currently no words about releasing the game outside of Japan. However, considering the game being made by PlatinumGames, along with the fame of Granblue Fantasy on the West, an English version of this game will soon become reality. Along with that, according to director Tetsuya Fukuhara during an interview with Famitsu, he also wants to bring this game to PC via Steam - which is no surprise, because Platinum has said in the past that it wants all its games to end up on PC. However, at the moment, the ultimate decision will "depends on the publisher."

Granblue Fantasy Relink will be released in Japan on PS4 at some point in 2019.
