Maintenance is over for Granblue Fantasy Versus and update 2.31 is out now! Anre is available now as the latest playable DLC character. Players can purchase him separately or as a part of Character Pass 2. New RPG mode content is added alongside Anre and the update. Here are the patch notes (character adjustments found here):

■General

Anre has been added as a playable character.

*The above content is available with a separate DLC purchase.

Anre’s Battle Concept

The founder of the Eternals, Anre is known for his iron defense.

Anre possesses skills that allow him to deftly dance around foes’ attacks while fighting. These include Rakshasa, a long-range attack; Mantra Wheel, a rushdown attack that can close the gap from mid-range; and Spiral Spear, a close-range attack with multiple follow-ups.

On top of that, Anre has two powerful defensive tools: the parrying skill Fleeting Spark and his Unique Action, Arm the Bastion.

Fleeting Spark is a counterattack that allows him to move immediately from a defensive stance to an attack.

While Arm the Bastion has a comparatively slow startup, if he’s able to successfully parry his foe’s attacks, he can immediately move to the next action.

Mastering both of these moves will turn Anre into a force of balanced offense and defense.

Anre’s potent defensive skills form the shield behind which lies the power feared by all as the “menace of the skies.”
