After Granblue Fantasy Fes 2019, we were given the opportunity to sit down with Fukuhara Tetsuya (FKHR) and Kimura Yuito (KMR), the director and producer of Granblue Fantasy. We asked them about the many announcements made at that show, and they were gracious enough to answer. Here’s part 1:
Famitsu magazine ran a Year of the Rat interview with two video composers who were born in the year of the rat: Sakamoto Hideki (b. 1972), who has composed music for the Yakuza and Super Smash Brothers series, and Granblue Fantasy‘s own Narita Tsutomu (b. 1984).
The two of them discuss video games, working with the legendary Uematsu Nobuo, and more!
The Granblue TV Channel end-of-2019 special featured Touyama Nao and Katou Emiri visiting the Cygames offices, and while we had a thread covering the fun little bits of the episode, we also promised a more thorough translation of the interviews with FKHR and KMR at the end.
The latest Pash! Magazine came with a deluxe GBF spread, and while we can’t share that, we can at least translate the interviews with the voices of the Dragon Knights: Inoue Kazuhiko (Siegfried) Ono Yuuki (Lancelot), Eguchi Takuya (Vane), and Oosaka Ryouta (Percival). First up: the interview with Inoue Kazuhiko!
Esports Magazine had a one-page interview with FKHR, where he talks about the design of the game, future tournament support, and more! As always, we’ve translated it and put it here for future reference.
This week, Dengeki PlayStation magazine included a 4-page feature on Granblue Fantasy Versus (GBVS). They sat down with game director Fukuhara Tetsuya (FKHR) to interview him about the game, including impressions from the closed beta and how RPG Mode will work.
