2B makes her way to another fighting game.

ONE Store Beta Now Available

Following its reveal back in December, Nier: Automata’s 2B has finally been released as a DLC character in Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising. This marks the first guest character for the Granblue Fantasy fighting game which was released just a few months ago.

To mark 2B’s release, a new trailer for her was shared on the game’s official YouTube channel, showing off new footage of 2B in action. Check it out here:

2B coming to Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising isn’t too surprising as the Nier Automata protagonist has appeared in numerous crossovers with both console and mobile games. In fact, this also isn’t 2B’s first appearance in a fighting game. That honor goes to Soulcalibur VI which featured 2B as a guest character back in 2018.

Being a DLC character, you’ll need to buy the 2B Character Set which is priced at USD 7.99. Along with 2B, the set comes with a premium avatar, a badge, a weapon cutout, and Figure Studio poses and expressions 1–6 for 2B.

In case you missed it, Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising is a sequel to Granblue Fantasy Versus, making it the second fighting game entry in Cygames’ popular franchise. The game was released on December 14, 2023.

Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising is available now on PS5, PS4, and PC via Steam.

In related news, the Granblue Fantasy: Relink action-RPG has sold over 1 million copies in just under two weeks.
