The game may not even have a release date yet here in the West, but that hasn't stopped Cygames and Arc System Works from showing potential buyers what Granblue Fantasy Versus has up its sleeve post-launch. The gorgeous looking fighter only has a small character roster at 11 combatants, but we've known for a while that it'll be bolstered with additional heroes and villains plucked from the immensely popular Granblue Fantasy mobile title.
The first four of those characters have been revealed in a new trailer, which you can watch above. They are: Chaos Bringer, Narmaya, Soriz, and Djeeta. The first two arrive in March 2020, while the latter two release in April 2020. Granblue Fantasy Versus itself hits Japan on the 6th February.
While the characters do look great, it's hard not to be at least a little bit cynical about the game's model. Again, with a roster of only 11 playable fighters at launch, pushing four DLC characters within just a couple of months does seem cheeky.

11 launch fighters is absolute nonsense given they’ve already announced these DLC characters. Talk about shady.
These fighting game publishers sure now how to spit out DLC characters before the game is even out lmao. How about just putting a bit more characters in the game before launch but wait that would help the customers we can't have that.
Announcing 2 character passes before the game is released seems a little extreme.
I learned my lesson with DBFighters (and the roster was 3 times the size of this one). Even though it looks great, I'm not buying this.
This game looks awesome, but I wish we'd get some details on a Western release. Roster size doesn't bother me as most Arksys games have very diverse feeling characters, and this is the first entry in what you'd assume will become a series of it's successful.
Well, I WAS kinda interested... but having 'waves of DLC fighters' being advertised before the game even releases just tells me they're out to nickel and dime us.
The whole fighting game genre is essentially being milked for DLC now and the hardcore fanbase knows they don't have much choice
Its a pity fighters are a DLC Mania now. Pulling out the most basic characters too sell them back too you. And come on 11 characters at the start and then announce fighterpacks..... 😩 😔
I bought MK10 complete, And injustice 2 complete. But also SF5 at launch, Dead or Alive 6, Soul Caliber and Tekken 7 have not bought any DLC though yes i know im part of the problem. 😩
And why dont they show you what you buy.....
