RAGE GBVS 2020 Summer began this weekend, bringing together 1,024 competitors in an online Granblue Fantasy Versus tournament that ran from May 30-31.
The lineup consists of players like Kachi "Pekos" Yota, Utsumi "DoraBang" Ryuji, Goichi "GO1" Kishida, Toru "Tachikawa" Tachikawa, Kei "BNBBN" Komada, Shoji "Fenrich" Sho, Ryota "Kazunoko" Inoue. Seemingly taking a page out of the Dragon Ball FighterZ book, Granblue Fantasy Versus has also attracted players from several other fighting games such as Blazblue: Central Fiction, Samurai Shodown VI, Tekken 7, Street Fighter V, and even Dragon Ball FighterZ itself.
The Japanese event was initially planned to have international players compete alongside locals. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was decided to have only participants in Japan compete to ensure the health and well-being of all parties.
