Granblue Fantasy: Relink coming to PS4 and PS5 in 2022

Cygames has re-revealed RPG spin-off Granblue Fantasy: Relink, announcing that the game will now release on PlayStation 5 as well as PlayStation 4.

The publisher announced a new release window and platform for its upcoming game at Granblue Fantasy Fes 2020 (thanks Gematsu).

Cygames also showed off a hefty 23-minute gameplay video (bel0w) too, revealing how the game’s coming on and what players can expect from the title when it launches sometime in 2022.

The game has been on something of a journey so far, but it seems the chequered and troubled development history is finally in the past as the publisher moves on with plans for the game’s release.

Cygames wasn’t shy about recapping the journey Granblue Fantasy: Relink has been on to date – the above video also shows off a whistlestop tour of production so far in both English and Japanese.

Back in February 2019, Cygames announced the developer previously attached to the title – none other than Bayonetta and Scalebound studio, PlatinumGames – had been removed from the project.

Instead, Cygames itself took charge of the game’s development, and this is the first proper look we’ve had at the game since the developmental reshuffle took place. This year, on-going issues with the Covid-19 pandemic have further interrupted progress on the game, but it seems things are finally getting back on track.

The video shows off four-player co-op, protagonists Gran and Djeeta, an overview of how the equipment works, character abilities, an airship area, and a boss battle.

The game is set to launch on PlayStation platforms in 2022.
