Honkai Star Rail Trailer Introduces March 7th

Honkai Star Rail March 7th

No, that isn’t a typo in the headline: A new trailer for Honkai Star Rail introduces March 7th to the public. “March 7th,” in this case, is the name of a playable character. She’s the star of the first new official trailer for the game since its initial announcement in October 2021.

Check it out below.

The trailer shows off March 7th’s personality. She is a key member of the Honkai Star Rail cast. She takes pictures constantly with her handy camera, seeking to record her experiences so she won’t forget them again. In battle, she wields a bow and ice powers. The video shows off her ability to flash-freeze foes in an appealing pose. A clever, eccentric girl with an unusual name, March 7th travels with the Astral Express. She was discovered by the Astral Express crew when she was trapped in a drifting piece of ice. Upon awakening, she had amnesia and was unable to remember her own identity. Lacking her original name, she opted to name herself after the date she was saved: March 7th.

As for the game itself, Honkai Star Rail will involve March 7th as well as other identified crew members like Welt, Himeko, Dan Heng, and possibly Carole. It’s a turn-based RPG with strategic elements, making it a significant departure from the character action of Honkai Impact 3rd and Genshin Impact. The game’s official website promises that players will experience a new astral adventure and uncover the secrets of Fragmentum with their crew.

Honkai Star Rail is in development, with no specified release window. Its closed beta began in October 2021. It will come to PCs and mobile platforms.
