Hit Anime RPG Blue Archive Receives First Massive Content Update Since Launch

Fan-favorite mobile anime RPG Blue Archive just received its first-ever large-scale content update, introducing new playable students, formidable raid bosses and the thrilling storyline “Cherry Blossom Festival Commotion”. Players worldwide can now recruit Izuna, leader of the Ninjutsu Research Club, and Shizuko, member of the Festival Operations Department, from the allied Hyakkiyako Academy to help combat foes invading the school festival.


The latest update delivers an all-new storyline with fearsome bosses, unique playable characters and the chance to earn rare in-game items and bonuses

In the updated event story “Cherry Blossom Festival Commotion,” players can rely on Izuna’s mystic attack type and “EX Skill,” which temporarily increases her attack speed after moving to a designated location. To increase accuracy and defense, Shizuko is also now available and, using her “EX Skill,” can cover her allies and boost their attacks.

The update also expands the “Total Assault” raid content to include two new deadly bosses, Shiro and Kuro. Appearing in the closed theme park Slumpia, these bosses cast a devastating range attack which will require strategy and skill to overcome.

Players will also be able to unlock the story content “Festival Operations Department” and “Inner Discipline Club” after acquiring one student from each club.

In celebration of the game’s latest event story, publisher Nexon is offering 1200 Pyroxenes to users logged in on Nov. 29. Players will also have the opportunity to exchange event rewards for rare items and accumulate event points to receive special bonuses, such as Pyroxenes, Eligma and Credits.

Developed by NAT GAMES, Blue Archive follows a group of adventurous schoolgirls as they navigate romance, school clubs, academic events – and the occasional battle with a rival school. Players will take on the role of the students’ teacher and guide them as they investigate incidents throughout the city.

Blue Archive is available on Android and iOS devices in 237 countries and supports multiple languages including English, Korean, Thai and Chinese (traditional).
