Posted by Nicholas 'MajinTenshinhan' Taylor • April 27, 2020 at 6:14 a.m. PDT • Comments: 30

Update: This story has been updated with fully translated patch notes.

The upcoming patch to Granblue Fantasy Versus which includes Zooey as a playable character alongside new RPG mode content for her, several new lobby avatars, a new stage and more has been further detailed by Cygames and Arc System Works today.

The patch, which goes live tomorrow, has changes to the game and the entire cast and are currently being translated here at EventHubs by myself, Nicholas "MajinTenshinhan" Taylor.

General Changes

Landing after a Jump or Backdash
• To solve an issue where you were able to cancel your landing if an opponent was attacking you, if you hold any upwards direction while inputting the guard button, you will no longer be blocking.

Guard Crush
• Changed an issue where you were able to cancel your guard crush to forward movement under certain circumstances.

Early Input
• Have decreased the window in which attack buttons or dashes can be input early and still come out.

Projectiles
• If attacked before a projectile comes out, the projectile will no longer appear (some specific exceptions exist).

Quarter-Circle Forward Command
• When inputting a quarter-circle forward command as part of a half-circle forward command, the fireball command will generally take precedent over a dragon punch input. Generally, doing a fireball input while walking forward (→ ↓ ↘ →) will give you a dragon punch (→ ↓ ↘) while doing a half circle forward from a forward walk ( → ← ↙ ↓ ↘ → ) will give you a fireball (↓ ↘ →).

Down Down Command
• If you go in another directon than neutral or down after the input, the moves associated with down down will no longer come out.

Gran

Close Standing Light
• Increased recovery.

Far Standing Light
• Startup is now slower.

Close Standing Medium
• Increased recovery.

Auto Combo Followup 1
• Since it was considered an airborne attack and couldn't be cancelled until landing, its properties have been adjusted.
• Until the attack comes out, it is considered grounded and can be cancelled to abilities and such on both hit and block.
• When hit during airborne status, the knockback has been adjusted to be in line with other characters.

Auto Combo Followup 2
• Since it was considered an airborne attack and couldn't be cancelled until landing, its properties have been adjusted.
• Until the attack comes out, it is considered grounded and can be cancelled to abilities and such right away on both hit and block.
• When hit during airborne status, the knockback has been adjusted to be in line with other characters.

Power Raise
• Adjusted an issue where Gran was able to charge it during the cutscenes of his Skybound Art and Super Skybound Art.

Medium Reginleiv
• If hit before his projectile is released, the projectile will no longer appear.

Catastrophe (Easy Input)
• The advantage time on a close hit has been reduced, putting the difference between the Easy Input and Technical Input in line with other characters' Super Skybound Arts.

Katalina

Backwards walk
• Her forward hurtbox while walking backwards was remarkably small, so it has been put in line with her standing hurtbox.

Close Standing Light
• Increased recovery.

Close Standing Medium
• Increased recovery.
• Changed close distance (meaning that the distance at which Katalina switches from Far Standing Medium to Close Standing Medium has become narrower).

Far Standing Heavy
• Reduced active frames and increased recovery, but no changes hav ebeen made to the overall time of the attack. Because of this change, the cancel window has become smaller.
• The forward hurtbox after her active frames end has been greatly enlarged.

Frozen Blade
• If attacked before the projectile comes out, the projectile will no longer appear.

Medium Enchanted Lands
• Damage has been reduced from 1600 to 1400.

Charlotta

Auto Combo Followup 2
• Startup has been slowed down, putting her in line with other characters.

Medium Shining Onslaught
• Clash level has been increased (Clash level refers to what type of attacks it will clash with — against attacks of a lower level, a move of a higher level will win the trade and say "Crush!" on the screen.)

EX Shining Onslaught
• Damage has been reduced from 1400 to 1200.
• Clash level has been decreased (Clash level refers to what type of attacks it will clash with — against attacks of a lower level, a move of a higher level will win the trade and say "Crush!" on the screen.)

Holy Ladder
• The descending portion of the attack has been set to have the same Clash level as Close Standing Light.

Noble Strategy (Technical Input)
• If inputting anything other than down or neutral after the move's input, the move will no longer come out.

Lancelot

Backwards Walk
• His forward hurtbox while walking backwards was remarkably small, so it has been put in line with his standing hurtbox.

Close Standing Medium
• Recovery has been increased.

Airborne Wirbelwind
• Recovery after landing has been increased.

EX Wogenstrom
• The active frames of the fireball have been shortened. Because of this, the distance travelled by the projectile is now shorter.
• If attacked before the projectile comes out, the projectile will no longer appear (this change also applies to the Light and Medium versions).
• The hitstop in the case of a projectile clash has been adjusted, making it more difficult for the projectiles to pass through each other.

EX Blade Impulse
• Startup is now slower.

Turbulenz (Technical Input)
• If inputting anything other than down or neutral after the move's input, the move will no longer come out.

Light or Medium Turbulenz
• If the opponent did a recovery after being hit, Lancelot was actually at a disadvantage when hitting, so the recovery on this move has been decreased, but only in the event that Lancelot hits. On block or whiff the recovery remains the same.

Percival

Medium and EX Platzen (Easy Input)
• Now sends the opponent further away from Percival on hit, putting it in line with other invincible moves' Easy Input versions.

• Damage has been reduced from 1500 to 1300 (the dash version has been reduced from 1600 to 1400).

Metera

Far Standing Light
• The forward hurtbox on her Far Standing Light has been increased for the duration from before the move comes out to after it's finished.

Far Standing Heavy, Crouching Heavy, Down Back Heavy

Zephyr
• Fixed an issue where after Metera crossed the opponent up, her abilities could still sometimes launch in the wrong direction.

Far Standing Medium
• Recovery has been increased.

Far Standing Heavy
• Clash level has been decreased (Clash level refers to what type of attacks it will clash with — against attacks of a lower level, a move of a higher level will win the trade and say "Crush!" on the screen.)

Crouching Unique (Sweep)

• Adjusted so that after hitting the first part of the attack, she can no longer land in the middle of it, ensuring that if it hits it will continue until the very last hit.

Sirius Roar
• Because it had exceptionally low damage when hit at a far range (meaning no animation), its damage distribution has been changed from "first part 2000 damage, second part 500 damage" to "first hit 2000 damage, second hit onwards 500 damage".

Vaseraga

Close Standing Light
• Attack level has been decreased. Its damage and clash properties haven't been changed, but its hitstop, knockback, hitstun and blockstun have been changed. (ATtack level refers to the general strength of a move, and higher attack levels give more hitstun and blockstun, while lower attack levels give lesser).

Close Standing Medium
• Recovery has been increased.
• Made it so that he moves forward slightly when using it, making it more difficult for it to whiff when you're just barely in close distance (meaning the range in which an attack shifts from its far version to its close version).

• Knockback has been decreased.

Jumping Heavy
• Knockback has been decreased.

Light Battalions of Fear
• Damage has been increased from 1200 to 1300.

Karma (Technical Input)
• If inputting anything other than down or neutral after the move's input, the move will no longer come out.

Black Spear (Easy Input)
• The advantage time on a close hit has been reduced, putting the difference between the Easy Input and Technical Input versions in line with other characters' Skybound Arts.

Way of the Fundoshi Fist
• If the second hit lands, leading into a cinematic super, Soriz will now be invincible until the end of the cinematic, and time will no longer count during the animation.
• Fixed an issue where sometimes the Super Skybound Art BGM wouldn't end even if Soriz didn't kill with it and the match returned to the normal. The music will now go back to normal as intended.

Djeeta

Close Standing Light
• Recovery has been increased.

Overdrive Surge
• Adjusted an issue where Djeeta was able to charge it during the cutscenes of her Skybound Art and Super Skybound Art.
