Developer miHoYo released a trailer for the new Honkai Impact 3rd Palatinus Equinox battlesuit for Durandal. The battlesuit is set to release alongside the upcoming Honkai Impact 3rd 5.5 update scheduled to launch February 24, 2022. The S-rank battlesuit will have a Guardian and Knight form, which allows Durandal to ride on a mechanical horse named Krishna. Furthermore, the trailer gives fans a brief glimpse into Durandal’s life before the events of the game.
Note: The trailer contains major spoilers for Chapter 28 of Honkai Impact 3rd.
The trailer shows Durandal aka Bianka Ataegina watching a vision of her childhood. Titled “Forever True to Yourself”, the trailer shows the Kaslana family enjoying a normal day at home. Kiana Kaslana appears as a child with her father Seigfried Kaslana and mother Cecilia Schariac. Towards the end, Kiana uses an umbrella as though it’s the Abyss Flower and prompts Durandal to hold it. The Palatinus Equinox battlesuit then appears and Durandal heads into battle.
The battlesuit itself also appeared in a making-of video released earlier this week. In the video, developers at miHoYo went over the Guardian and Knight versions as well as each form’s abilities. Similarly, the video also gives some exposition about Durandal’s mysterious background.
