Blue Protocol Characters

Bandai Namco is preparing for the Japanese release its upcoming MMORPG Blue Protocol, and a new trailer has just been published. 

This trailer showcases how you can communicate in the game (besides the usual chat), including cute emotes and a variety of stickers, which will let you get the point across quickly. This is likely going to be handy for players using a controller (albeit I'd never advise playing an MMORPG without a keyboard in reach). 

We also learn that the development team prepares to make the pre-download of the Japanese version tomorrow at 1:00 pm JST ahead of the upcoming local launch.Players outside of Japan will unfortunately have to wait much longer, unless you're willing to play on the Japanese servers without the English localization. 

You can check out the trailer below, following another focusing on various locations of the worldone showcasing the playable classes, another focusing on the powerful character creation tools, and one showing off the costumes you can use to create your favorite anime-style look

If you're unfamiliar with Blue Protocol, it's a free-to-play anime-style MMORPG with a business model focusing on battle passes and paid cosmetics. It'll be released in Japan on June 14th, 2023 for PC.

It features an extremely deep character customization suite designed to let players basically create their ideal anime-style character, on top of fast action combat and interesting character progression and storytelling.

It’s developed by a team named Project Blue Sky, which is a joint initiative of Bandai Namco Online and Bandai Namco Studios, and it was announced all the way back in 2019. Three beta tests have already been hosted for the Japanese audience, which has received the gameplay quite well.

The western release was announced in December 2022 during The Game Awards and is coming in 2024 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S following a recent delay. It will be published by Amazon Games, which is planning a beta for 2023 on PC. 

While we wait, you can enjoy the impressive character creation and benchmark softwaresome recent gameplay, and the opening cutscene featuring the song "Mirai" by the popular Japanese band L'Arc-en-Ciel.
