Granblue Fantasy Versus is just a few weeks away from having its first closed beta, and it appears as though Arc System Works wants us to have a better understanding of the characters that are likely going to be playable in it by releasing new footage of the title.

We've already seen character introduction trailers for Lancelot and Ferry this week, but now it's time for the main characters of Gran, Charlotta and Katalina to have their time in the spotlight thanks to Kayane, Justin Wong and Team Spooky.

Being the protagonist of the series, Gran looks to be a fairly standard warrior-type character with his short sword at first though his gameplay shows that he incorporates a bit of a nontraditional fighting style using some fairly awkward looking swings and kicks. He also has backup for one of his supers in the form of Lyria supporting him from the back.

Katalina, on the other hand, is very graceful and calculated with her movements striking swiftly and powerfully to keep the opposition on their toes. She also appears to wield ice magic to freeze her enemy in place to open up multiple follow up opportunities.

Charlotta may be small, but she carries around a big sword for her size. She uses the weight of her magical looking blade to her advantage allowing her to do rolling spin slashes and launch into the air.

Those interested in playing the new ArcSys fighting game will have until May 24 to apply for the closed beta to potentially be one of the first players in the world to touch the actual gameplay on May 31.

Granblue Fantasy Versus is currently set for a worldwide release at some time in 2019 on the PlayStation 4. You can check out the new trailers for Katalina and Gran below plus for the most recently revealed fighter, Ladiva, here.
