Granblue Fantasy: Versus stories

Anre feels built around negating his opponent's reward rather than seeking his own — Gameplay impressions for the newest GBVS character

The latest addition to the Granblue Fantasy Versus roster launched last month, and the character in question was the somewhat controversial addition of Anre, one of the legendary Eternals.

Whatever your personal thoughts on Anre's appearance (which has been the most controversial part about him) may be, he has without a doubt brought a very unique gameplay concept and fighting style to the Granblue Fantasy Versus roster and thereby diversifying it even further. So how exactly does Anre's stated defensive playstyle work in the game's current meta? Let's have a look at Anre's strengths, weaknesses and his role in the game's competitive field.

Anre is looking like an absolute tech monster with tons of special follow ups and movement options in his fully translated movelist

It's kinda hard to believe, but Granblue Fantasy: Versus' second season of content will be heading over the hump in the next few days as the game itself also approaches its one year anniversary since launch.

Anre's release will soon be upon us, and while we got a chance to see him in action in his gameplay trailer, his full movelist is one of the most expansive among the whole roster with multiple special variations and Supers ready at the tip of his spear.

As promised by Cygames, the latest trailer for Granblue Fantasy Versus dropped today and it details the previously unveiled character Anre (or Uno as he's known in Japan) who was revealed at the end of Yuel's trailer last month.

The character was previously described as a highly defensive one and his trailer shows this in action bigtime. You can find some images and the trailer itself further below.

Granblue Fantasy: Versus' premium battle pass doesn't really seem worth the asking price

Battle passes are sweeping through the games as a service landscape as a way to keep players logging in while earning some bonus rewards, and now they've officially made their way into fighting games in perhaps one of their least enticing incarnations to date.

Granblue Fantasy: Versus recently added free and premium battle passes with its Version 2.22 update where the price of admission seems pretty steep for what players can unlock in return.

Anre is set to be a defensive character who controls the pace of the match and will likely become a massive problem for zoners

With Yuel just recently release for Granblue Fantasy Versus and being a heavily offense-based character, it seems only fitting that the next addition to the game would be the immovable object to her unstoppable force.

Anre is set to be released in late January and we honestly don't know too much about he's going to play outside of the developer's stated comments and a few quick gameplay glimpses at the end of Yuel's trailer and while these aren't going to be enough to give us an accurate view of the character as a whole, they're definitely enough to paint up his gameplan — and show which characters are likely going to be struggling against him.

Who are the Eternals and why is it such a big deal that one of them is joining Granblue Fantasy Versus' roster?

In mid-December we finally got our proper gameplay trailer of our third Season 2 character for Granblue fantasy Versus, namely Yuel. While this trailer was obviously focused heavily on Yuel and what she was capable of doing (as well as unveiling she'd be out in the game the very next day), they also gave us a glimpse at the next character coming — Anre, or "Uno" as he's known in Japan.

To be honest, he was quite the unexpected pick for a variety of reasons, partly because while the Eternals, the group which Anre is a part of, are a very popular faction in the Granblue Fantasy world and to its fanbase, Anre himself isn't exactly a standout in it. It's also somewhat surprising that they already dipped in to the well that is the Eternals for the game's roster and definitely piques our interest for what is coming next. So who exactly are the Eternals and why are they such a big deal? Let me share the details with you.

Yuel's strengths, weaknesses and how viable her gameplan feels in practice — Gameplay impressions for Granblue Fantasy Versus' newest addition

Last weekend, we were treated to the newest addition to Granblue Fantasy Versus roster with the dancing fox lady Yuel who brings with her a bunch of flashy moves, stance mechanics and adorable Kansaiben accent (it's a true treat to anyone who knows Japanese, trust me). But how good is she in the Season 2 meta?

While I did write several articles of speculation on Yuel, one based on how she works in the source game Granblue Fantasy and another one based on her trailer footage now that I've actually gotten some playtime with her to explore how her options work in practice, there are some things that have stayed true and others that have shifted quite a bit. So how does Yuel feel after roughly one and a half weeks of playing as her, against her, watching tons of footage of her as well as analyzing tournament matches of her? Let's dive into it.

Yuel's speedy moveset and Third Dance mechanic seem to make her a technical character which heavily rewards having a good read on your opponent

Today, we finally got out first look at actual gameplay of Granblue Fantasy Versus' next upcoming character Yuel and not only that — we got the fantastic news that she's being released for the game as soon as tomorrow.

Even though we're going to have our hands on this agile fox lady very soon, I've taken the time to thoroughly analyze her trailer as well as the move descriptions she got on the official site to pair together a sort of preview for what we can glimpse of her gameplay and various possibilities before we get to jump into the lab with her tomorrow.
