Cygames has announced the stage schedule for Granblue Fantasy Fes 2017, which will run from December 22 to 23 at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan.
Unfortunately, unless it is being withheld for a later announcement, there does not seem to be a stage event dedicated to the 2018-due Granblue Fantasy Project Re:Link, the PlatinumGames-developed Granblue Fantasy title announced for PlayStation 4 in 2016. That said, it is still possible the game will appear in one of the stage events on the program.
