Skyfarers, primals, and a small dragon! What is Granblue Fantasy?

The world is vast and full of mysteries waiting to be uncovered by adventurers and treasure hunters across the skies. Where hidden temples, lost civilizations, and dark dungeons await for any brave souls to enter its depths. Only those who manage to take to the skies in their airship for thrills and riches beyond their wildest dreams can call themselves a "skyfarers." 

 

Granblue Fantasy, a turn-based role-playing game available on mobile devices and browsers, is developed and published by CyGames and made its debut in March 2014. With an ongoing story and layers upon layers of character classes to choose from, this game will keep you playing for a long time! It brought in some fantastic talent like renowned composer Nobuo Uematsu and art director Hideo Minaba, known for his fantastic character designs in Final Fantasy IX and Final Fantasy XIV. This game picked up a lot of popularity due to these two men working together on the same project again after many years!

In Granblue Fantasy, you take on the role of The Captain, an unnamed character who patiently waits for the day when they too can soar above the clouds in search of adventure with his winged friend Vyrn. One day, their peaceful days are flipped upside-down when they see a shining light fall into the forest from an Erste Empire airship passing in the skies. Curious, their investigation brings them to a girl named Lyria and an Imperial Officer named Katalina, who are trying to escape the empire. While fighting off Imperial soldiers, the Captain suffers mortal wounds, fearing for the worst Lyria chooses to merge her soul with the Captains to save them from death. With their fates now connected to Lyria’s, the Captain and Katalina set off to the mysterious land of Estalucia, the home of the mythical beasts known as Primals, while evading the hands of the Erste Empire.
