Honkai Star Rail is an upcoming turn-based RPG from Mihoyo, who you may recognise as the developer of Honkai Impact 3rd and Genshin Impact. This title seems to have a few recognisable faces from Genshin Impact, however, they have different names and backgrounds.

If you’re intrigued by this game and want to learn more, we’re here to help. Our Honkai Star Rail characters guide will fill you in on everything you need to know about the announced heroes, and let you know who the English and Japanese voice actors are. We assume that this is just the beginning of the character roster, so we recommend you check back from time to time to stay in the know.

For more content like this, make sure you head on over to our Honkai Star Rail release date guide for information on the beta and pre-registration. And if you happen to play other Mihoyo titles, go ahead and browse our Genshin Impact tier list, Genshin Impact codes, Honkai Impact characters, and Honkai Impact codes.
