Cygames streamed a fourth anniversary special on Niconico and on Twitter on Sunday for its Granblue Fantasy smartphone game, revealing a new slate of collaborations, and an upcoming new café.

The first new collaboration is with Gōshō Aoyama's Detective Conan manga and anime series in April. The event also showed a character design for Conan Edogawa (Minami Takayama will reprise the role for the collaboration).

In addition, a Persona 5 collaboration will also launch in June.

Also in April is a new side story collaboration with The Idolm@ster SideM.

Other merch includes new character songs, and new Graphic Archive IV and a Graphic Archive IV Extra Works books, which will ship simultaneously in June.

The game is also getting a cafe collaboration with Pasela's famed "Honey Toast Café" in Akihabara, as well as a karaoke collaboration with Pasela karaoke parlors in Tokyo, Yokohama, and Osaka. The karaoke collaboration will feature collaboration food that visitors can order while in the karaoke booth. Both collaborations with Pasela will run from March 10 through April 15.

Granblue Fantasy will have a "Summer Festival" event in Sendai, Fukuoka, and Osaka in June and July, and will also have a December event at the Makuhari Messe event hall in Chiba in December.
