The official YouTube channel of Bandai Namco’s upcoming MMORPG Blue Protocol has just released a brand-new trailer showcasing the opening animation and its theme song. Titled “Mirai”, the soundtrack is performed by L’Arc~en~Ciel, and if that name sounds familiar, they are the same performers behind several theme songs of the Fullmetal Alchemist anime franchise, as well as the ReLIFE anime.
In Blue Protocol, players embark on a quest to uncover the truth about their character’s origins, meet people from many worlds and make new friends with whom they share your adventures. Eventually, you find yourself facing an inescapable destiny that will determine the fate of planet Regnas in an immersive multiplayer experience with deep character customization and action-packed combat.
Furthermore, Blue Protocol also features an action-based combat system that features customizable controls for beginners and veterans alike. Your class depends on your chosen weapons, allowing you to adapt to challenges without changing your character. Players can switch between five different classes, each with unique skills that add damage multipliers, healing, and elemental effects that can be modified and leveled up. Assign combinations of skills, modifiers, and summon Echoes, mystical creatures derived from the planet’s power that bolster your abilities or aid you in battle, and create a custom hero fit for your play style.
Set on the planet of Regnus, the world of Blue Protocol is filled with a mysterious light called Engram. An ancient civilization, known as the Bafarians, has been relegated to nothing more than myths and stories, and their once-proud cities are now reduced to ancient dilapidated ruins.
You can watch the opening trailer below. It is worth noting that the video warns that there may be partial spoilers to the game’s main narrative and that viewer’s discretion is advised.
Blue Protocol will be coming to Japan in the Spring of 2023 and in North and South America, Western Europe, Australia, and New Zealand in the second half of 2023.
