Cygames and PlatinumGames announce action RPG Granblue Fantasy Project Re: Link

Granblue Fantasy goes 3D.

Granblue Fantasy Project Re: Link

Cygames announced Granblue Fantasy Project Re: Link, an action RPG developed by PlatinumGames, during its Cygames Next 2016 event in Tokyo.

Set in the world of Granblue Fantasy, the game is produced by Cygames’ Koichi Haruta, directed by Cygames’ Tetsuya Fukuhara, features character design by Hideo Minaba, and music by Nobuo Uematsu and Tsutomu Narita.

The game is being made with the intention of multiplayer. The trailer shows four characters fighting alongside each other. However, there will also be a single-player scenario mode, and they’re being careful not to make the game difficult. The current progress of development is 10 percent, according to producer Haruta, and the plan is to continue increasing the amount of characters, so the game is expected to be large-scale. A release date and platform were not announced, but Haruta mentioned that he “bought a new PC for this” during the event. (Update: A Platinm Games blog post calls the game “our first console game based on an extremely popular smartphone franchise.”)
