Granblue Fantasy: Relink Starts Strong on Steam

When Granblue Fantasy: Relink was launched on Steam, it outperformed Persona 3 Reload and Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth in terms of concurrent player counts. Despite a problematic past, the game was first revealed in 2016 as a partnership between PlatinumGames and Cygames. However, Cygames later took over the internal development of the project, which resulted in several delays. Granblue Fantasy: Relink was finally launched on February 1, 2024, to great acclaim.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink stood out at launch even though it was up against stiff competition from two highly anticipated 2024 JRPGs, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth and Persona 3 Reload. On January 26, Infinite Wealth was released one week ahead of Relink, while Persona 3 Reload followed a day later. However, Relink outperformed its rivals in terms of concurrent players on Steam, not just holding steady against them.

Based on SteamDB, a website that collects data on the most recent games released on Steam, Granblue Fantasy: Relink accomplished a noteworthy feat throughout the course of its launch weekend. With almost 114,000 players playing at once, the game has more players than Persona 3 Reload and Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth combined, which peaked at about 45,000 and 46,000 players, respectively. Although Relink’s concurrent player count may not be as high as that of other action JRPGs on Steam, like Elden Ring or Monster Hunter: World, the Granblue Fantasy series has accomplished a great deal with its introduction.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink’s considerable player base is a result of the game’s significant current mobile user population. The game’s online cooperative multiplayer mode makes it very appealing for several players to participate at once. This is further supported by Relink’s mission structure and advancement, which is modeled after Capcom’s Monster Hunter series and emphasizes teamwork to kill monsters. In Relink, it’s even advised to perform post-game tasks together for better gameplay.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink has received extremely good reviews, demonstrating how well the mechanics of the mobile RPG were transferred to an action RPG scenario. Considering the difficulties encountered during development, the game is a superb role-playing game that can hold its own against its peers. Granblue Fantasy: Relink is established as a unique and highly respected role-playing game in the RPG genre by fans who think it is well worth the wait.
