Granblue Fantasy Relink is the latest big project from Cygames. Here’s everything we know about the highly anticipated JRPG so far including platforms, trailers, and release date.

Granblue Fantasy Relink is the next upcoming release from Japanese developer Cygames. The team has been busy producing a handful of Nintendo Switch exclusives, including Little Noah: Scion of Paradise, and Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle.

Granblue Fantasy Relink, however, is the studio’s most ambitious project yet and it looks like they’ve created a gorgeous JRPG world full of wonder and adventure. Here’s everything we know about the game so far.

Granblue Fantasy Relink features a large cast of characters, and a vast world to explore.

At Gamescom 2023, Cygame announced the game would be released worldwide on February 1, 2024. 

Previously, it was set for a 2022 release but was pushed back several times.


Granblue Fantasy Relink will be coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam.

It’s unconfirmed whether the game will receive an Xbox release in the future, but as the last Granblue console title – Granblue Fantasy Versus – was a PlayStation exclusive this seems unlikely.

Granblue Fantasy Relink is only the second console game in the franchise’s history.


There have been a handful of trailers for Granblue Fantasy Relink since the game was officially announced in 2017. The PlayStation Showcase trailer gave fans a closer look at the game’s world, combat, and characters.

A short trailer was released in December 2021 that featured a number of combat sequences where characters were battling all kinds of enemies from goblins to dragons.

A cutscene-based trailer was released in 2019 that highlights some of the game’s core party members showing off their signature skills before heading into battle with a skeleton army.

In 2018, an early trailer was released that detailed traversal and combat gameplay.

The trailer at Gamescom 2023 finally confirmed Relink’s release date and pre-order information. Pre-orders begin on August 23, with available deluxe and collector’s editions.


A PS4 and PS5 demo was officially confirmed by CyGames in December 2023 and was made available on January 12, 2024.

Fans can play through 3 different modes in the demo including a small portion of the single-player main story, and quest mode which gives you the chance to play online in co-op.


Granblue Fantasy Relink is an action RPG that includes four-person player co-op. The game’s main story will be a single-player experience and a multiplayer co-op mode will become available to players after the campaign has been completed. The quests that are unlocked in the endgame can either be tackled in co-op or alone with AI companions.

Based on the gameplay footage, combat in Granblue Fantasy Relink is a real-time fast-paced system that utilizes standard base attacks, as well as magic and signature character abilities. From what we’ve seen so far, there’s a great deal of enemy variety within the game, and a number of vast, vibrant environments for players to explore.

While details on the game’s story are still scarce, an official summary has been released on the game’s website, stating the following:

“There exists a world where islands of all shapes and sizes float in a sea of clouds. It is a world forsaken by the gods.
Once upon a time, people known as the Astrals attempted to seize control of this world with their overwhelming might,
but the citizens of the skies repelled the invaders, thus ushering in a new era of peace.

Living on a little-known island in a remote part of the skies,
you find a letter left behind by your father telling you to set off for a legendary island.
However, before you leave, you meet a mysterious girl named Lyria, inevitably setting the wheels of fate in motion.”
