XSEED Games-Published Fighter Begins Season 2; Belial and Character Pass 2 Now Available
Torrance, Calif. – September 24, 2020 – XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc. today announced the beginning of the second season of DLC characters for Granblue Fantasy: Versus for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC via Steam. The fallen angel Belial, one of the first primal beasts brought into being, has been added to the growing roster of characters and is currently available for purchase digitally for $6.99 on both platforms. The Character Pass 2 DLC bundle is also available for $34.99 and grants access to six new fighters, starting with Belial, as they are released.
Belial’s handsome appearance belies his true nature – that of an irreverent, cunning fighter who rightfully earns his nickname, “Serpent.” His main goal appears to be little more than sowing chaos throughout the Sky Realm, though to what end no one can say for certain. However, the Singularities of Gran and Djeeta have attracted his attention, and with it the possibility for endless amusement. Watching the two captains struggle to restore order to the world gives him a visceral thrill, motivating him to spread more and more discord and provoke direct confrontations.
