A new decade is almost upon us promising at least two new fighting games from Arc System Works once the calendars change over in Granblue Fantasy Versus followed by Guilty Gear Strive.

Western Publisher XSEED Games is continuing to release new English trailers for Granblue Fantasy Versus this time going over the powerful Lord of Flames himself, Percival.

At the same time, Granblue Fantasy Versus' Twitter account also shared some new footage of the weapon skin system which allows players to select different swords, spears, and other weaponry to suit their tastes.

Percival is a fairly slow-walking fighter, but his damage output and abilities more than make up for his lack of speedy approaches.

As the trailer shows off, the fiery knight can open up his opponents with the X-Seele ability that breaks their guard and opens them up for punishing follow-ups. Traumerei is another special that can actually change his move properties and allow for some impressive-looking combos.

Weapon skins will be unlockable gear in GBVS via the single-player / co-op RPG mode by completing quests which can then be brought over to the versus modes of the fighter. These won't affect game balance, however, as they appear to just be purely cosmetic changes.

Granblue Fantasy Versus is currently in development for the PlayStation 4 with a Japanese release date of February 6, 2020 and a North American / European launch window of Q1 2020. You can check out the new trailers below.
