Step Forth, Beyond the Blue.
Introducing the Game’s Setting, Along with Primal Beasts and the Initial Playable Characters!

December 5, 2023 – SEGA is pleased to share with you the setting, primal beasts, and initial roster of playable characters of the upcoming action RPG Granblue Fantasy: Relink, which releases worldwide on February 1, 2024 on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, and Steam.

 

■ WORLD

 

To the Promised Land, the Girl in Blue Appears

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.

 

GBF Relink Characters - 02

 

Welcome to the Zegagrande Skydom

 

GBF Relink Characters - 03

 

The legendary Island of the Astrals, Estalucia, is still out there, waiting to greet you intrepid travelers. But until then, the journey continues in the skies to the west, where a new story will unfold.

 

Born to the Wind, Citizens among the Clouds

 

GBF Relink Characters - 04

 

The Sky Realm is home to numerous islands and their people.

Four races have come together to shape civilization.

 

Primal Beasts, Living Weapons Made by the Astrals

 

GBF Relink Characters - 05

 

Created by the Astrals, these great beasts were gifted with god-like powers.

In the aftermath of the War—which ended roughly 500 years ago—the remaining beasts fell into a slumber throughout the skies, where their presence deeply influenced the development of local customs.

Primal beasts only obey the Astrals, thus the rampage of an awakened primal is akin to a grand-scale calamity. However, some people possess a devout belief that these divine beings are a part of nature and thus shouldn’t be pacified.

 

■ PRIMAL BEASTS

 

Proto Bahamut

 

GBF Relink Characters - 06

 

Join forces with Lyria to summon this obsidian dragon.

Though its mighty wings have carried you to many victories, its origin and purpose remain unknown.

 

Furycane

 

GBF Relink Characters - 07

 

A primal beast that governs vitality.

 

■ INITIAL PLAYABLE CHARACTERS

 

You’ll have five companions at the start of the game—Katalina, Rackam, Io, Eugen, and Rosetta—and their number will increase as you progress through the story. Each time, you’ll have the choice to recruit new characters to join your ranks. Additionally, you’ll be able to switch the main character’s appearance at any time*.
