Granblue Fantasy is a fascinating franchise. It has a vast and wondrous story as well as interesting characters and it has some engaging beat ’em up titles. What it has been missing for me though is a proper RPG. This is where Granblue Fantasy: Relink comes in. It’s an absolute blast.

Following the crew of the GrandCypher as they make their journey to the fabled land of Estalucia, players play as the Captain. Players can still choose between a male or female version of the character. On one particularly fateful day the crew are attacked by monsters and unleashes the primal Bahamut to deal with them. Unfortunately, something happens to Bahamut and he goes berserk, attacking the crew. After an extended and intense battle, Bahamut is subdued. After landing at a new Skyport and trying to figure out what’s wrong Lyria is kidnapped by a cult wishing to use her powers for their own mysterious means.

With our pact partner spirited away by evildoers, it’s up to us and the GrandCypher crew to save her and likely save the world in the process.

Primals, powers and so much more

Granblue Fantasy: Relink is absolutely brilliant. The action elements of this game are stellar and players get access to so many playable characters. The combination attacks are easy to learn and fun to master. There are link attacks which combine all the abilities of your allies to devastating effect and it makes for a strangely communal experience, especially if you go online and play with friends. The best part though is the impressive cast of characters, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink is also crammed with stuff to do. There are tons of sidequests that you can undertake with your friends or the AI companions in tow. Though the sidequests become somewhat rinse and repeat they’re a fun way to grind if you’re under-levelled for the main story. Also, they help you build all the resources you need to craft your gear.

The story of Granblue Fantasy: Relink is a fun new chapter in the Granblue franchise and has some great new enemies to contend with. My particular favourite is Id voiced by the legendary Kenjiro Tsuda. He’s equal parts menace and stoic charm. Plus the graphics are gorgeous. The world is flush with vivid colours with an art style that just pops off the screen.

Stacked with lovable characters, intense battles and gameplay mechanics that compel you to keep coming back for more Granblue Fantasy: Relink is a must for RPG fans.
