As for the teaser, Honkai: Star Rail’s short clip shows off a fantasy rocket train shooting up from a planet to outer space. The trailer also showed some new characters. Many speculate that it could be another JRPG that will feature gacha elements. We have added the link for you to feast your eyes.
Prior to Genshin Impact, the developer released several mobile Honkai Impact games. Honkai Impact 3rd released in 2017 is cited to be the first major success for the studio that came with gacha mechanics and let players have a chance to grab in-game items and characters using crystals. While Honkai Impact 3rd was initially released on mobile, it isn’t clear whether the new game will launch only on mobile or other platforms as well. But with Genshin Impact being launched on PC, PS4, iOS, and Android simultaneously last year and the game now having over millions of downloads worldwide, miHoYo might try for a similar strategy with Honkai: Star Rail.
