During our session, our Dragon Knights battle monsters on lush grass in sky canyons and rickety wooden walkways before pitting them against a gigantic Elder Dragon in front of the crashing airship. Because it has a massive health bar, the monster takes a long time to defeat, forcing us all to make the most of all of our offensive skills and attacks. If an ally falls, you can revive them by running and spending a few seconds helping them up.

Taking on a creature of this size, Relink almost feels like Monster Hunter via Devil May Cry. Link-based content even spreads to custom gestures. After creating the charge meter, we use special attacks (by pressing both analog sticks), chaining them one after the other to inflict a greater burst of ultimate damage. Just defeat the dragon and uncover the treasure chests, but what bigger monsters might be waiting for us on the other islands?

The great thing is that, despite the spectacle, this co-op represents the kind of side missions you can take on in addition to the more scenario-based main campaign. On some islands you will find towns where you can wander around, adjust your equipment and connect with other players using these hubs as a kind of lobby. Speaking to us, Cygames calls it an “instant co-op system” and mocks a lot of side quests.

If Cygames can get some nifty and stylish action to work in an ongoing online setting and single-player story, it might be one of our favorite ways to spend evenings with friends. After all, its work on the mobile game proves the developer has the skills to keep gamers engaged for the long haul. We have yet to see a developer get a Devil May Cry style online game, but we would invest a lot of money in Cygames who can do just that. Alongside the great fighting game Granblue Fantasy Versus (see last issue), it looks like the Granblue series is set to take the PS4 by storm, and we’re ready to navigate its heart.

In our session, our Dragon Knights battle monsters across lush grass and rickety plank walkways through sky canyons, before coming up against an enormous Ancient Dragon in front of the crashed airship. Because it’s got a massive health bar the beast takes a while to beat, forcing all of us to make the best use of our full range of skills and charge attacks. If an ally falls, we can revive them by running up them and spending a few seconds to help get them back on their feet. 
Tackling a creature of this size, Relink’s almost like Monster Hunter by way of Devil May Cry. The link-based content even spills over into special moves. After building up charge meter, we use special attacks (pressing in both analogue sticks), chaining them one after the other to do a bigger final burst of damage. It’s enough to take down the dragon and uncover treasure chests, but what bigger beasties might await us on the other islands? 
What’s great is that, despite the spectacle, this co-op quest is representative of the type of side-missions you’re able to take on in addition to the more scenario-based main campaign. On some islands you’ll find towns where you’re able to walk around, adjust your gear, and link up with other players, using these hubs as a sort of lobby. Speaking to us, Cygames calls it an “on-the-fly co-op system”, and teases plenty of side-quests. 
If Cygames can get slick, stylish action to work in an ongoing online context as well as the single- player story, this could end up being one of our favourite ways to spend evenings with friends. After all, its work on the mobile game proves the dev’s got the chops to keep players engaged over the long- term. We’ve yet to see a developer really get a Devil May Cry-styled online game right, but we’d put good money on Cygames being the one which could do it. Alongside the great fighting game Granblue Fantasy Versus (check last issue), it seems that the Granblue franchise is ready to take PS4 by storm, and we’re prepared to set sail right into its heart.
