At the beginning of every year since 2018, Granblue Fantasy creative director Fukuhara Tetsuya has written a letter addressed to GBF players to discuss the game’s past, present, and future. The 2021 edition of the letter covers the challenges of 2020 as well as the plan for the coming year – here’s our translation of the whole thing, in much more depth than our Twitter thread that skimmed over each segment.
For length reasons, we’ve split this into two parts. Part 1 covers the Granblue Fantasy browser game, and Part 2 covers Granblue Fantasy Versus and Granblue Fantasy Relink.
This official monthly update for Granblue January 2021 was posted, here’s a summary of the updates. KMR notes that there are relatively few updates in the coming month, as the 7th anniversary is coming soon and the team is working hard on the anniversary updates.
The monthly news post for December came out this week, so here’s a recap of the information. Most of this mirrors what came out of Granblue Fes, so let’s dive in! Note: Character Balance changes are in a separate post, which can be found here.
For the release of Granblue Fantasy‘s 8th soundtrack “Awakening”, GBF composer Narita Tsutomu graciously answered our questions about his gaming habits, his musical influences, and some of the stories behind each track on the soundtrack.
