Anila Revealed for Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising


Today during the Cygames Cup Special 2023, the first new character coming to Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising was revealed. A new trailer briefly shows some in-game footage of Anila one of the Twelve Divine Generals. Besides her zodiac sheep theme, Anila is known for having special moves that resemble some of Terry Bogard's iconic moves, such as his Power Geyser and Buster Wolf. Watch Anila's announce trailer, below.

Granblue Fantasy: Versus Rising director Tetsuya Fukuhara also provided some quick details about Anila's play-style. Anila is described as an all-rounder who fights using a pole-arm and divine sheep. With a variety of projectiles, anti-airs, and rush-down attacks, the Queen of Sheep has a powerful set of tools that can be utilized by players of all skill levels.

In addition, the promotional images (below) also provide a few new details about new mechanics in GBVS: Rising such as New Triple Attacks and Dash Attacks. Just like the original Auto Combo system from GBVS, Triple Attacks can be performed by pushing an attack button three times in a row. The third hit, however, can now be changed to an overhead or low attack depending on the player's input. These can be used to open up a defensive foe and keep your pressure going!

Secondly, Dash Attacks are quick attacks that can be performed while a character is dashing. These can be used to close the gap and keep the pressure on the opponent with different variations using light, medium, and heavy attacks. Some characters have dash attacks that can be chained into combos or used to catch blocking foes off guard.




Cygames confirmed that the next Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising trailer will debut next Saturday, March 4th, 2023.
It's likely that the trailer will include Anila gameplay footage. Stay tuned on Fighters Generation for more coverage.
