At Summer Game Fest, we had more interesting mobile announcements than I expected following news from Marvel Snap and FF7 Ever Crisis. HoYoverse showcased a new trailer for the space fantasy turn-based RPG Honkai Star Rail revealing a new character and also confirming the PS5 version’s release window. When Honkai Star Rail comes to PS5 in Q4 2023, it will have cross save and cross play support with iOS, Android, and PC platforms. I’m definitely going to move to playing it on both iPad and PS5 when that happens. This trailer showcases Luka and also Yukong who are upcoming characters following the Honkai Star Rail 1.1 update. Watch the Honkai Star Rail Summer Game Fest 2023 and PS5 release trailer below:
Honkai Star Rail is available for free on the App Store for iOS here, on Google Play for Android here, and check it here on the Epic Games Store in addition to its regular PC version. I didn’t expect news this soon after the Honkai Star Rail 1.1 update, but it made sense to have this reveal at Summer Game Fest 2023. I was surprised that the PS5 version is coming so late though. I expected it in the next month or two. Have you been playing Honkai Star Rail regularly since it launched on mobile and PC?
