Honkai Star Rail, the popular RPG by HoYoverse, is set to introduce a new character named Sakura in a future update. Leaked information about Sakura’s abilities has excited players, sparking speculation about her potential role in the game.
Although there is no official confirmation from HoYoverse, fans speculate that Sakura may be the same character from Honkai Impact 3rd. However, it is important to take these leaks with caution, as Sakura’s existence in the game’s devkit prior to the launch of Honkai Star Rail raises doubts about her actual availability as a playable character.
As of now, there is no official release date for Sakura in Honkai Star Rail. Fans anticipate her potential debut in update 1.6, which could be sometime in 2024.
Sakura is an Ice element character in the Path of The Hunt, focused on dealing massive damage with powerful single-target attacks. Her abilities, according to leaks, include a basic attack that deals Ice damage, a skill that boosts the power of the next attack and increases Blast Damage, an ultimate attack that deals Ice damage and continues attacking the target if it is in Weakness Break state, and a talent that ignores part of the target’s defense and increases speed when hitting an enemy in Weakness Break state.
While Sakura’s abilities resemble those of other characters in the Path of The Hunt, such as Yanqing, it remains to be seen how she will stand out and contribute to the game.
Stay tuned for more updates on Sakura in Honkai Star Rail as new information emerges in the coming months.
