Granblue Fantasy: Versus stories

Powerful zoning capabilities and highly varied combo routes make him a potent threat anywhere on the screen — Granblue Fantasy Versus Eustace review

Last week, the latest combatant was added to Granblue Fantasy Versus in the form of one of Society's most skilled members, the stoic gunslinger Eustace. Having been initially announced back in March and later getting his full gameplay trailer about a week before his release, there was a long period of excitement building up to Eustace before he eventually joined the game.

So how has the character shaken out? Well, I've taken some time to play as him this last week as well as of course play a number of matches against him and have made my early deductions on what the character has to offer, which as it turns out is quite a lot. He was originally billed by the developers as a zoning type character who excels at the mid-range, but how does this hold up in practice? Let's delve into the specifics regarding Eustace and his playstyle.

Katsuhiro Harada wants to create an EVO-like mega fighting game tournament with other publishers like Capcom and SNK once offline events become safe

The fighting game community essentially lost one of its largest pillars with the onset of the coronavirus pandemic last year in offline majors and in-person events, which has put a strain on both the players and creators of the games.

Developers of the biggest titles around made that point quite clear during the second Japan Fighting Game Publisher Roundtable where Tekken Director Katsuhiro Harada put forth the idea of Bandai Namco, Capcom, Arc System Works, SNK and others teaming up to create their own mega fighting game tournament or even fighting game title, which was well-received by those in attendance.

The push by the fighting game community to bring rollback netcode to the forefront of the attention of developers took years to reach where we are now with widespread adoption and acceptance, but that also leaves many titles potentially forever stuck in a place with sub-optimal netplay — even some of the most beloved titles around.
