Honkai Impact 3rd has now announced more details about its upcoming crossover with Neon Genesis Evangelion. This is set to arrive next week on January 22nd and will introduce an exclusive story, battlesuit and weapon to the popular action-RPG.
The main event found in this collaboration will be called New Century and will start with Mei setting foot on Nagaroza. It follows the story of a group of girls battling against an invasion of Angels. Throughout the event, The 4th Angel, 6th Angel, and 8th Angel will appear as enemies along with scenes from Neon Genesis Evangelion that fans will be familiar with.
By completing a series of activities players will be able to net themselves the SP Battlesuit Blazing Hope. In addition to that, they'll also be able to earn the commemorative stigma of Misato, exclusive outfits, Crystals, and Supply Cards.
Blazing Hope will be the Battlesuit for Asuka and will be a BIO melee Physical DMG dealer, capable of dishing out huge damage with its Charged ATK which makes use of Field Energy. Her Ultimate, meanwhile, boost her DMG output further and the Finisher strikes enemies with a giant lance that causes AOE Physical DMG.
Asuka's voice actress will be Yuko Miyamura, who has apparently rarely appeared in games. Alongside the Battlesuit, the weapon Lance of Longinus and stigma set Children will be exclusively available during the collaboration and will arrive with the update on January 22nd.
