Xseed Games and Cygames just released the Granblue Fantasy: Versus version 1.31 update on PS4 and PC via Steam. This update brings balance changes and one new DLC character to the fantastic fighter. Unlike the version 1.21 update that saw the PC release of the DLC get delayed by nearly a week, this update arrives for both platforms at the same time. The DLC character added today is Zooey as a part of the season pass. Zooey will be available in North America (as standalone purchases) later today when the store refreshes. Check out my review of the PS4 version of Granblue Fantasy: Versus here and the PC version here. Watch the Zooey trailer below:
