While gaming franchises crossing over is common, an actual partnership with celebrated anime personalities is novel. This could pave the way for future in-game crossover events themed around popular anime series.

  • Much like the Aloy crossover event in Genshin Impact, an anime related collab means that in future, HoYoverse may implement gameplay tie-ins, special rewards, or themed activities relating to certain animes!

For HSR’s loyal fan base, these small bonuses would provide an exciting blend of their favorite game with the ever-growing world of anime media.

For fans of both Honkai Star Rail and anime, this collaboration event is truly a celebration of both worlds colliding.
