Okay folks, let’s skip right along with this review. By now, you should know all about Honkai Impact 3rd. This free-to-play third person action title has already been out for nearly half a year and developer miHoYo has not stopped in getting new content out there to keep you busy and committed to this awesome game.

For this update review, we’re going to dive into the content you’re going to be enjoying by breaking it down into sections and explaining what we loved about each element. Let’s get right down to business in our update review for Honkai Impact 3rd.

TWO NEW VALKYRIES: Players will first notice is that Honkai Impact 3rd has added not one but two new Valkyries! Yae Sakura has acquired a new A-rank samura-themed battlesuit Flame Sakitama, while Theresa—the best principal in the world—has also gained the new angelic S-rank Celestial Hymn battlesuit. While these two new Valkyrie battlesuits might be the same girls you’ve grown accustomed to, they pack quite a punch with some slick new abilities. Yae Sakura, already OP enough on her own, will be dishing out wicked combo moves with her Flame Sakitama battlesuit, allowing her to literally slice and dice through enemies while reducing them to burning cinders. What’s great about the Flame Sakitama suit is that getting it isn’t based on how lucky you are with the crate drops! You can make her yours by collecting Soul Shards to unlock the fiery Samurai warrior via the Open World adventure tasks and missions you can take!

NEW STORY: Chapter 6. The new chapter in this new update continues the Honkai Impact 3rd official campaign with a dozen new missions and fantastic CG cutscenes. We blitzed through the new chapter pretty quickly in an about an hour or so, but Story missions are offered at harder difficulties for extra EXP and matz. There's also bonus missions that can prove quite a challenge if you're under the level requirement. The worst thing that we found about the Honkai Impact 3rd update is that we have to wait a bit longer for Chapter 7 and that might kill us with anticipation.

NEW ELEMENTS: Raids and Memorial Arena. The September update for Honkai Impact 3rd will be featuring new events such as the Soul Throne Raid and Memorial Arena for Captains who have reached LV50 or higher. New missions in the form of the Snowwolf Raid will put your team work to the test and allow you to demonstrate your mastery of Valkyrie fighting skills to other players. All this will leave you occupied and praying for more game time!

Half-year Anniversary events and outfit: Starting from September 13 to October 4, Honkai Impact 3rd will be launching the St. Freya's Homecoming Fair as its semi-annual event! Take part in new activities for a chance to win a mouth-watering new outfit: Aeterna Purum, and we know that we're going to do everything we can to earn that mouth-watering dress (and put it on our waifu Mei) once the event goes live!

Honey's Gameplay Consensus:

HI-1-Honkai-Impact-3rd-capture-560x420 Honkai Impact 3rd - Firing it Up This September!
At first glance, you might think Honkai Impact 3rd’s latest update isn’t as large or glamourous as the previous one we saw in the summer. Yet, with two new Valkyries, several new missions, a new fighting arena, tons of high ranked weapons for lvl 50s and over as well as a special activity that will be launching on the 13th of September, this update packs quite a bit of content for those still loving Honkai Impact 3rd as much as we are. We are itching to rise up the ranks and hope to nab some of the newer Valkyries and weapons we are itching to try out on our girls. Once more, if you for some reason put down Honkai Impact 3rd we recommend downloading—the once again free—update that should keep you busy for quite some time. Seriously, we only wonder if Honkai Impact 3rd will ever get boring…probably not if we’re being honest.

Honey's Pros:

  • Two new Valkyries with new skills and fighting styles
  • Several new missions and events
  • Chapter 6 will give you even more story mode to enjoy and reveal more of this mysterious tale unfolding
  • New weapons and costumes to obtain
  • Once again completely free

Honey's Cons:

  • Honestly just more time we now will lose as we continue our addiction to Honkai Impact 3rd

Honey's Final Verdict:

HI-1-Honkai-Impact-3rd-capture-560x420 Honkai Impact 3rd - Firing it Up This September!
We’re honestly amazed, folks. Developer miHoYo Limited continues to keep releasing content—that is FREE!—for Honkai Impact 3rd and it just adds upon the greatness of this awesome mobile game.

Folks, we aren’t trying to sell you Honkai Impact 3rd but are telling you that you need to try it out, especially since this new update will have some events that are going to only last for a limited amount of time!

Hey everyone I’m Aaron Curbelo or Blade as I’m called by my YouTube Subscribers. I’ve been an anime/manga fan since I was a young kid. In terms of anime I have watched nearly a thousand shows and have read hundreds of manga series. I love writing and honestly was so happy to join Honey’s Anime to get a shot to write articles for such a wonderful site. I’m a firm believer in respect in the anime community being the most important embodiment we should all have. We all love anime and we have varying opinions of series but we should respect one another for those differences! Life is too precious to spend it making needless arguments in a community that should be the shining example of loving an amazing medium. I hope as a writer for Honey’s Anime I can bring you folks some amazing articles to read and enjoy!
