May 25, 2023 Andrew Cheng

It’s been almost a month now since the release of Honkai: Star Rail, and Hoyoverse is teasing quite a number of characters leading up to the game’s Version 1.1 livestream. The studio previously teased Kafka and Blade, and today, a completely new character, Luka, has also been revealed.

Kafka and Blade, not surprisingly, are 5-star characters, while Luka is a 4-star character. Their respective elements have also been revealed: Kafka wields Lightning, Blade is a Wind character, while Luka is a Physical unit.

Chances are, all three of these characters will be playable in Star Rail sooner or later, though it remains to be seen exactly when. There is a chance they will be added to the game in Version 1.2, given that the teaser image for the game’s Version 1.1 livestream features Silver Wolf, Luocha, and Yukong, who are likely to be playable in Star Rail 1.1.

Nonetheless, we’ll just have to wait for the Version 1.1 livestream of Honkai: Star Rail to know for sure. The stream will begin at 7:30PM on 26 May tomorrow on YouTube.
