Granblue Fantasy and Jujutsu Kaisen crossover set for August 2023
Developer Cygames has announced that its long-running mobile and browser RPG Granblue Fantasy will get a crossover event with anime and manga series Jujutsu Kaisen. The event will kick off in August 2023.
The crossover was announced during the Granblue Extra Fes event in Sendai, Japan. A follow-up post on the game's official Twitter account also included a preview of character art from the event:
The art shows off Jujutsu Kaisen characters Yuji Itadori and Megumi Fushiguro. They will appear in-game as a "duo unit", where two or more characters take up a single slot in a player's frontline party.
Created by Gege Akutami, Jujutsu Kaisen debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump in March 2018, and is localized into English by Viz Media. The story involves Jujutsu Sorcerers who can manipulate the flow of "Cursed Energy" generated by peoples' negative emotions. These sorcerers, among them Yuji Itadori, use their abilities to combat Curses - malevolent beings created by the uncontrolled accumulation of Cursed Energy.
Beyond the confirmation of Yuji and Megumi's presence, little else was revealed about the Jujutsu Kaisen x Granblue Fantasy crossover. Granblue itself is no stranger to such "collaboration" events, as characters from series like Street Fighter, Sakura Wars, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Attack on Titan have all appeared in the game's setting.
Granblue Fantasy is available on mobile devices, as well as on PC via browser. The Jujutsu Kaisen crossover event will kick off in August 2023.
