Granblue Fantasy: Versus version 2.31 update patch notes

Anre has been added as a playable character and additional weapons have been added to RPG Mode. Additionally, updates and bug fixes have been applied to certain modes. As of this update, Master-rank players who have not played a Ranked Match for a set period of time will be demoted to SSS.

General

Anre has been added as a playable character. The content is available with a separate DLC purchase.

Anre’s Battle Concept:

  • The founder of the Eternals, Anre is known for his iron defense.
  • Anre possesses skills that allow him to deftly dance around foes’ attacks while fighting. These include Rakshasa, a long-range attack; Mantra Wheel, a rushdown attack that can close the gap from mid-range; and Spiral Spear, a close-range attack with multiple follow-ups.
  • On top of that, Anre has two powerful defensive tools: the parrying skill Fleeting Spark and his Unique Action, Arm the Bastion.
  • Fleeting Spark is a counterattack that allows him to move immediately from a defensive stance to an attack.
  • While Arm the Bastion has a comparatively slow startup, if he’s able to successfully parry his foe’s attacks, he can immediately move to the next action.
  • Mastering both of these moves will turn Anre into a force of balanced offense and defense.
  • Anre’s potent defensive skills form the shield behind which lies the power feared by all as the “menace of the skies.”

The following Weapon skins for Anre have been added:

  • Yatagarasu
  • Spear of Vyrnsail
  • Bamboo Spear
  • True Conviction Flashspear
  • Spear of Bahamut Nova
