Today HoYoverse revealed a brand-new trailer for its upcoming turn-based RPG Honkai: Star Rail, focusing on one of its characters.
We get to take a look at Yanqing, or more precisely Luofu Cloud Knight Lieutenant Yanqing, apparently capable to... surf on swords? The trailer showcases his ability to control blades Final Fantasy XV-style and we also hear his English voice actress Amber May.
If you prefer the Japanese voices, you can also take a look at the Japanese trailer, voiced by Marina Inoue, who played Alicia in Valkyria Chronicles, Soji in the Senran Kagura series, Kohak Hearts in Tales of Hearts and more.
If you're curious, her's how he's officially described:
"The spirited lieutenant of the Xianzhou Luofu, and also its most proficient swordsman.
He is born for swords and obsessed with them. Whenever a sword rests in his hand, none would dare to underestimate this genius still in the early days of his youth.
Perhaps the only thing capable of dulling his treasured blade's sharp edge is time."
Honkai: Star Rail is coming for PC via the Epic Games Store, iOS, and Android. Pre-registration is already open ahead of the upcoming release.
If you're unfamiliar with it, here's how the developer describes the game's world.
"In this universe, there are the [Aeons], incarnations of universal principles that are able to freely travel between infinite worlds using some kind of primitive force. The galaxy is packed with varied worlds that have unique landscapes and stories; the [Aeons] roaming the universe uphold their own beliefs. The protagonist, who was implanted with a [Stellaron], embarks on a trip aboard the Astral Express with a group of passengers who claim to have inherited the spirit of [the Trailblaze]. Together they will pursue the trails of [Aeons] to explore the realms of the universe."
