The Granblue Fantasy April Fools 2022 event is a Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo collaboration. This is the second time the character has appeared in the game, following a similar collaboration event last year. The event brings back many outfits and items from the previous one, including Don Patch’s sword and Bobobo-bo’s five unlockable outfits. Additionally, a campaign will reward players with 3,000 crystals if 10,000 people wish Bobobo-bo a happy birthday. The event will run until April 2, 2022, Japan Time. [Thanks, Famitsu!]

The collaboration event is marketed as the “366th day of April Fools,” referencing the previous year’s Bobobo-bo collaboration. As with the previous event, it comes with a story featuring the titular character as well as others from the Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo series like Don Patch and Beauty. This year’s collaboration also adds new trophies and a trivia page for Bobobo-bo characters.
Players can have Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo join their party by collecting sessalg. You can obtain sessalg through battles with Bo-bobo himself. You can also use the sessalg to purchase five outfits for Bo-bobo. The outfits will not change his appearance, but will instead unlock various voice lines for the character. Unlockable items include Don Patch’s green onion sword and Bo-bobo’s iconic afro. Since most of the items and outfits are the same as last year’s event, players who have already obtained them will be unable to do so again during this year’s event.
Finally, the official Granblue Fantasy account is holding a Twitter campaign celebrating Bo-bobo’s birthday. If the hashtag #ボーボボお誕生日おめでとう (“Happy Birthday Bo-bobo”) reaches over 10,000 tweets, all players will receive 3,000 crystals.
This isn’t the first time Granblue Fantasy has collaborated with other franchises. The game frequently hosts crossovers with a wide range of games, anime, and other media. Recently, Cygames announced a collaboration with Final Fantasy XI. Last year, the game also hosted a Gintama collaboration event, as well as one with Doraemon.
Granblue Fantasy is available on iOS and Android devices. The Granblue Fantasy Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo collaboration event will last until April 2, 2022, at 12 a.m. JST.
