Cygames’ uber-promising JRPG spin-off Granblue Fantasy: Relink will now release on the PlayStation 5 as well as the previously announced PlayStation 4. The publisher announced the tidbit during the Granblue Fantasy Fes 2020 overnight, as watched by Gematsu. It also premiered 23 minutes of new gameplay footage, which we’ve embedded above.
Unfortunately, the title is still some time away. It’s currently pegged for a 2022 release date, despite being announced all the way back in 2016. Obviously this is an ambitious and high budget project, and development will have been impeded by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The developer says the title is currently in an alpha state, meaning it’s mostly playable, but has missing assets and features that need to be finalised.
