The latest reveal is a full gameplay trailer featuring the Divine General of the South-Southwest mixing it up.

In Granblue Fantasy Versus Rising Anila uses her long polearm in combat, with generous involvement from her tame flock of sheep. She can send sheep running across the screen as ranged projectiles, or ride them forward to close a gap. She can also juggle foes on her polearm, and has a crashing pound attack that spawns a massive Japanese kadomatsu decoration that spawns a wave of sheep. Her ultimate move summons a stampede of white and black sheep to trample her enemies.

Anila was introduced to Granblue Fantasy in 2015 as a “Zodiac” character. The Zodiac characters are based on the Chinese Zodiac and are introduced each new year. She’s voiced by Aoi Yuuki (Lucy in Cyberpunk Edgerunners, Clementine in Overlord) in Japanese. In English she’ll be voiced by Leona Renee, who in addition to voice acting has also done professional localization work on series like The Legend of HeroesYs, and Senran Kagura.

Besides the Anila gameplay trailer, Cygames also revealed that the next Granblue Fantasy Versus Rising reveal will be timed for Evo Japan. The event takes place between March 31, 2023 and April 2, 2023.

Granblue Fantasy Versus Rising is in development for release on the PS4, PS5, and PC in 2023. The original game is available on the PC and PS4.
