As previously teased in a Japanese live broadcast, the western release of Bandai Namco’s developed MMORPG Blue Protocol has just opened, alongside the official website stating that the game will be releasing in the second half of 2023 as a free-to-play game on PC via Steam, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S! Furthermore, closed beta test applications can be done via the aforementioned site by connecting to your Amazon account.
“Blue Protocol is a beautifully crafted game; it’s like an anime come to life,” said Christoph Hartmann, VP, Amazon Games. “Bandai Namco Online has created a world of the highest quality with a compelling story that will build community and immerse players in an action-packed adventure. As anime continues to rise in popularity globally, we look forward to bringing Blue Protocol to players in the West next year.”
“Amazon’s commitment to quality and attention to detail in bringing Blue Protocol to new audiences is exemplary,” said Sokichi Shimooka, executive producer of Blue Protocol at Bandai Namco Online Inc. “The Amazon Games team’s deep expertise in operating multiplayer games, combined with Amazon’s publishing resources and transmedia opportunities, made them the ideal publisher for Blue Protocol in the West. We’re excited to work together to bring players an incredible experience.”
Amazon Games has further announced that Blue Protocol will be available in five languages upon release: English, French, German, Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese, and will be published in North and South America, Western Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on further details regarding this release.
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.
Furthermore, Blue Protocol also features an action-based combat system that features controls that are customizable for beginners and veterans alike. Your class is dependent on the weapons you choose, 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.

Developed by Bandai Namco Online & Bandai Namco Studios and published by Amazon Games, Blue Protocol is a free-to-play Multiplayer Online Action RPG where you become the hero of your very own sci-fi fantasy adventure. Explore the beautiful and dangerous world of Regnas in an immersive multiplayer experience with deep character customization and action-packed combat.
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. 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.
