Hoyoverse has released a brand new Honkai Impact 3rd animation – and it’s a tear-jerker. If you play the game regularly, you’re probably crying your eyes out at the newest animated short. It’s only been out for around eight hours at the time of writing this article, but it’s already gotten a heap of traction and feedback. 

The Latest Honkai Impact 3rd Animation

Not only is it tugging on the heartstrings of players, it’s also receiving praise for how gorgeous the actual animation is. Each movement is fluid, and you can tell a lot of love has been put into it. You can see heartwarming scenes of popular characters interacting with each other as they revisit old memories and say goodbye to Kiana.

Who is Kiana?

Now, if you’re not familiar with the game and you’re wondering what this is all about, it’s basically a farewell animation to one of the most influential characters in the game so far. 

Kiana is one of the main characters in Honkai Impact 3rd, and with the first arc of the game coming to an end, it’s time to say goodbye to her – for now. Many fans speculate that she may come back in the future, or at least make an appearance for an event. 

It helps that the game already features a fantastic art style, but there’s something extremely special about a dedicated animated short. Even if you haven’t played the game, the overall narrative within the video really does strike a chord with the viewer – especially with the impactful violin chords in the background.

So, What’s Next?

We’re not too sure what happens next in the world of Honkai Impact 3rd. It’s certainly not ending any time soon, and we assume the next arc in the main storyline will be just as good as this one. However, many Honkai fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the much anticipated Honkai Star Rail – the latest entry in the franchise!
