Shanghai, China - On JAN 7, 2021, global interactive entertainment developer and publisher miHoYo announces Honkai Impact 3rd's collaboration with the celebrated Japanese anime IP Neon Genesis Evangelion to bring the fans of both titles a new epic showdown with [Angels].

Watch the collaboration concept trailer:

Featuring stunning cel-shaded graphics, immersive storylines, deep customization, infinite combo action, and tight controls, Honkai Impact 3rd has won itself an international following since its launch on mobile devices, achieving over 200 million downloads and frequently topping Apple Store and Google Play charts worldwide. Since late 2019, Honkai Impact 3rd has been made playable on PC with cross-platform play support everywhere, drawing more players to the acclaimed experience. Honkai Impact 3rd is set in a modern world corrupted by mysterious energy known as [Honkai]. Lead a fledgling resistance of [Valkyries], brave girls carrying anti-Honkai genome, against the spreading Honkai disaster to protect all that is beautiful in the world!

The multimedia Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise originated in the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion that first aired in 1995 and developed into a social phenomenon. The screening of the new animated film series starting 2007 extended Evangelion's reach to the younger generation, leading to a sensation that has been continued by Evangelion: 1.0 You Are [Not] Alone, Evangelion: 2.0 You Can [Not] Advance, and Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo. The long-anticipated sequel Evangelion: 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time is screening on JAN 23, 2021.

"Neon Genesis Evangelion is a monumental work in the history of anime. Its core resonates with that of Honkai Impact 3rd as both Valkyries and NERV are ordained to fight for the world," miHoYo's CEO Liu Wei comments. "Evangelion has remained hugely successful for decades. The unprecedented level of anticipation for the latest movie proves the quality of the content released over the years to cater to its fans. I'm very excited about our upcoming collaboration because it can create something genuinely unique."

The version featuring the collaboration between Honkai Impact 3rd and Evangelion will be released for iOS, Android, and Windows on JAN 21, 2021.
