New Honkai: Star Rail Cinematic Trailer Stars Sparkle

After major story events in its games, HoYoVerse often releases a cinematic trailer for people to watch, and that just happened in Honkai: Star Rail with a Sparkle moment. It goes over events from the 2.0 Penacony storyline and combines it with real-world footage.

Editor’s Note: The Honkai: Star Rail cinematic trailer features spoilers for the Penacony storyline that ran during versions 2.0 through 2.3. 

While much of the imagery from the new Honkai: Star Rail cinematic trailer is pulled from Penacony Trailblaze Missions released before 2.3, the narration by Sparkle and explanation is set during “Farewell, Penacony.” Things begin with Sparkle explaining that this segment came to a “perfect ending.” She then introduces an opportunity for insights from Firefly, Aventurine, and Acheron to come up. This plays while footage from major characters, both heroes and antagonists, shows up. It also revealed the Clockmaker secret. While this happens, Sparkle explained why she did what she did throughout these missions.

It’s then that Sparkle showed the buttons she distributed in Penacony. It’s then that the real-world footage comes in, showing those same buttons being pressed by actual people. From there, we see the characters in Penacony and on the new Radiant Feldspar ship location introduced in 2.3. It closes with more moments with both Firefly, Stelle, and Sparkle. 

Here’s the full “The Great Tatalov Salutes You” cinematic trailer for Honkai: Star Rail.

2.3 is now live in the game. This added Firefly as a playable character, made it possible to earn Xueyi, and added the new Divergent Universe Simulated Universe option alongside the new story segments.

Honkai: Star Rail is available for the PS5, PC, and mobile devices.
