Forums - Gaming Discussion - Why is Gran Blue fantasy hyped?

I see this all the time. People calling it the next big hit on ps4 in Japan. It's basically an action RPG made by platinum games. Gran blue was originally a mobile game released in 2014. It was very successful. But does it still take in big revenue today? 

 

What's the logic behind the ps4 game being a hit? And are people expecting 500k or are they actually expecting over a million. I need to know more about this.

It's another action rpg made by Platinum. That's the only reason I need to get excited



Good question. I hadn't even heard of it until I saw people here hyping it up.

Did you see the game footage?

This is a NEW game in the series. Visually stunning and the combat looks fantastic. It looks like a really good game.

But then surely they should expect sales in Japan maybe a bit higher then nier. In the 500k ballpark. Rather then these crazy 1m predictions.

This is pretty much the reason, plus Platinum being the developer

Granblue still seems pretty popular in Japan. I often saw huge ass billboards everywhere promoting the game.
Last year they did a crazy newspaper add.

One of the things that makes Granblue popular is that for every character they add to the game, they tend to have an A list voice actor do the voice acting.
Along with crossovers with other popular videogame or anime franchises.
