Granblue Fantasy: Relink is February’s surprise banger, shifting 1 million copies in under 2 weeks

Like I pointed out at the end of last year, mid-January to early February was pretty damn big for gaming. Games like Palworld I did not see coming, while others like Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and Tekken 8 have been having their moments. One game I pointed out but didn’t particularly expect to bang was Granblue Fantasy: Relink, a JRPG from a relatively niche franchise that’s gone through its fair share of development hell.

Yet here we are, nearly two weeks after release, and the game has kinda banged. It managed to sell 1 million copies in just 11 days across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Steam. Even on Steam alone it’s been doing pretty dang well for itself, regularly breaking 100,000 concurrent players over the past week-and-a-half and nabbing itself a spot on the platform’s top 10 recent bestsellers, according to SteamDB. It’s currently sitting at a “Very Positive” rating too, with 89% of its 17,000+ reviews giving it a big ol’ thumbs up.
