Granblue Fantasy Versus came out of left field for most of us as Arc System Works' next big fighting game as a collaboration with Cygames though it really caught the eye of the fighting game community after its beta earlier this year.

We haven't received much news pertaining to the upcoming spin-off title since the beta closed in May though it appears as though we now know when the next big batch of information will be dropping in just a few weeks.

Granblue Extra Fes 2019 will be taking place during the first weekend of August where Cygames announced they will be holding a 'Granblue Broadcast: Height of Summer! Special' live stream on August 3.

During said live stream there will reportedly be more info incoming about Versus which will likely include a new trailer at least and hopefully a more concrete release date.

When asked if the character Belial would show up in Versus as a playable fighter on a recent Famitsu stream, Granblue Fantasy Producer Yuito Kimura reportedly responded, "I can't say here. There is a lot of info we haven't revealed yet, so tune in to the live stream on August 3rd for a ton of GBVS info."

It may be worth taking the statement above with a little grain of salt, however, as the translation was provided by the granblue_en Twitter — an unofficial fan page with 34,000 followers — recapping the stream's details in English.

Some further credence is lent to this though as Granblue Director Tetsuya Fukuhara tweeted earlier this month that he was busy editing the next trailer for Granblue Fantasy Versus.

Granblue Fantasy Versus is currently in development for the PlayStation 4 with an expected release date sometime in 2019. You can take a look at our impressions of the game's beta which left us much more interested in the title than we were initially.
