Granblue Fantasy: Relink Gets Version 1.3.0 Update Includes New Character Sandalphon, Photo Mode, and More

TOKYO – May 30, 2024 – Video game publisher and developer Cygames, Inc. (HQ: Shibuya, Tokyo; President: Koichi Watanabe, hereinafter referred to as “Cygames”) has announced the third free major update coming to the action RPG Granblue Fantasy: Relink for PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, and Steam® on May 31. Included in this update are challenging new quests, new playable character Sandalphon, Photo Mode, and other additional content.

Free update Version 1.3.0 introduces an all-new playable character: Sandalphon, protector of the Sky Realm. Originally debuted in the Granblue Fantasy browser game, Sandalphon became leader of the four primarchs: angelic beings who govern the four elements. Now he descends upon Relink to lend his blade to the crew’s cause.

Sandalphon is free to unlock by completing certain in-game requirements. Alternatively, players may opt to purchase his Character Expansion Set (paid DLC) to unlock him immediately.

Included with this update are three challenging quests which pit players against several powerful boss-level monsters. Additionally, Lucilius, who appeared in the Version 1.1.0 update as the game’s most perilous foe, will take on an even more menacing form in a new quest dubbed “Zero”.  This fight promises to test the limits of even the most battle-hardened skyfarers.

Capture the Moment with Photo Mode; Share Your Journey with Relink’s Photo Contest

Photo Mode is another addition coming in this update. Using its various tools and features, players can set up perfect shots of their Relink adventure. Skyfaring photographers with higher aspirations are also encouraged to participate in Relink’s Photo Contest, which is accepting entries as of today.

Paid additional content coming in the update includes a new emote expansion set and item packs useful for upgrading characters, weapons, and sigils. Check the official website for more details.



Granblue Fantasy takes place in the Sky Realm, a world where myriad islands float in a great blue expanse. Take your role as captain of a skyfaring crew, joined by a scrappy little dragon named Vyrn and a young girl with mysterious powers named Lyria. Together you sail with a colorful cast of crewmates, including kings and misfits alike, for Estalucia, a fabled island beyond the end of the skies.

In the Zegagrande Skydom, islands are guarded by powerful creatures known as primal beasts and winds carry tales of a secretive organization known as the Church of Avia. Unveil a web of intrigue reaching far beyond the borders of Zegagrande and engage in a battle for the fate of the Sky Realm itself.
