Players will be able to unlock Kiana’s new S-rank battlesuit [Herrscher of Flamescion], explore the new roguelike activity [Elysian Realm], and have fun in the new high yielding summer events with Valkyries!
Honkai Impact 3rd is set in a modern world corrupted by mysterious energy known as [Honkai]. When world is enveloped in endless dark nights, leads a tenacious resistance of [Valkyries], known as brave girls carrying anti-Honkai genome, against the spreading Honkai disaster to fight for everything that is beautiful in this world.

In the latest animated short [Everlasting Flames], Kiana, the protagonist and the first default character of the game, has transformed into Herrscher of Flamescion. Himeko, who was Kiana’s mentor and a true rebel that defied the gods as a mortal, has completed her final lesson. Having inherited her will and blossomed into a true Valkyrie, Kiana obliterates the darkness with the everlasting flames.
The new S-Rank battlesuit [Herrscher of Flamescion] sports a ponytail and a fiery cape, but her ocean blue eyes are unmistakably Kiana’s and are also reminiscent of the queen. Herrscher of Flamescion supports aerial combat, allowing Kiana to unleash sword waves in midair. In Herrscher mode, Kiana will draw out a burning greatsword that leaves a trail of fire after every swing, creating visual wonders.
