Honkai: Star Rail Sparkle Trailers Hint at Her Story

With only a few hours left before Sparkle appears in Honkai: Star Rail for her debut banner, HoYoVerse has put out a short trailer and a Keeping up with Star Rail tutorial on her kit. Owlbert seems to have forgotten to fix the title of the Keeping up with Star Rail video though.

For starters, the “A Moment Among the Stars – Sparkling Tricks” is very short, at under a minute long. It uses traditional 2D animation, featuring Sparkle in Penacony. It seems to give a hint as to what role Sparkle will play in the overall Penacony story arc, as she implies that she plans on jumping in at the climax of the “performance” and messing things up.

As for Keeping up with Star Rail, Sampo and Owlbert help to introduce how Sparkle will work in-game. HoYoVerse has already given us a lot of information about her kit though. She will be a Quantum Harmony character who specializes in SP management. Not only can she give an extra SP with her passive Talent and restore it with her Ultimate, but she can also boost characters’ Crit DMG and such when they use SP in battle.

You can watch the “Sparkle Ability Intro Vid” for “Keeping up with Star Rail” here:

Honkai: Star Rail is readily available for the PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. Sparkle and Jing Yuan will appear in the gacha from February 29 to March 26, 2024.
