When the 6.7 update arrives for Honkai Impact 3rd, Shigure Kira will get her own battlesuit called Sugary Starburst. To help prepare, HoYoVerse released a new behind-the-scenes video showcasing the playable character. It features the development team discussing her design, as well as showing off some gameplay footage.

Shigure Kira is a Schicksal Valkyrie in Snow Wolf Squad who wanted to become an idol, but failed those tests and passed the Valkyrie one. She’s also close to Durandal and appeared in the game and manga. Most recently, she appeared in Salt Snow Holy City and met Susannah and Seele.

However, as noted in the video by a developer, she’s a terrible singer. One person in it said, “Someone even planned to make her singing voice into an acoustic weapon.” This concept is meant to come through in her design. The Sugary Starburst battlesuit has idol elements to it as a result, like a “modern style cut.” She also wears a lot of accessories, and her scarf has musical imagery on it. Instead of fighting with her voice, as in the concept, she uses guns.

Here’s the full Honkai Impact 3rd Shigure Kira Sugary Starburst battlesuit preview video.

Honkai Impact 3rd is available for the PC and mobile devices, and the Sugary Starburst battlesuit will be playable in 6.7.
