Two new Honkai Impact 3rd battlesuits will debut in the 6.6 update. One is the SP Terminal Aide 0017 for the AI Number 17, which was part of Prometheus. The other is the S-rank Dreamweaver, for the World Serpent member Misteln “Hare” Schariac. HoYoVerse’s newest preview video involves members of the team talking about both playable characters and showing behind-the-scenes looks at their development.
Editor’s Note: The new Honkai Impact 3rd battlesuits trailer features spoilers if you aren’t caught up with the story.
The video began with footage of both Misteln and Number 17. After that, the team talked about Misteln’s Honkai Impact 3rd Dreamweaver and its design inspirations. The art concept team noted Cecilia’s appearance inspired hers, as did art from Mamoru Nagano. The S-rank battlesuit has psychic abilities who plants Seeds of Ideas when attacking with her banner to attack alongside her. When she goes into her “dreamworld,” she uses spears to attack and her appearance changes.
Meanwhile, Terminal Aide 0017’s design involves references to Honkai Impact 3rd’s IMG monsters. The colors are designed to match them. Her being an AI also influenced its design. She’s designed to use as a shield-breaker who uses gauntlets that can transform to attack.
Here’s the full video.
Honkai Impact 3rd is available for PCs and Android and Apple iOS devices, and 6.6 is on the way. In 6.5, Susannah’s Valkyrie Quicksand battlesuit appeared.
