  • Sensei set out on a journey to quell tensions between Shanhaijing Academy students
  • New Explosive-type Strikers Rumi and Mina make their debut

SEOUL – Nov. 29, 2023 – A culinary spectacle unfolds in popular mobile RPG Blue Archive with the arrival of an all-new event story, “Dragon & Tortoise: Working Together for a Better Future,” and two new stellar students, Rumi and Mina.

From NEXON Korea Corp., Blue Archive follows the exploits of Sensei in the city of Kivotos as they solve various problems, meet unique students from numerous academies, and guide them towards success. Players can face off against various enemy forces utilizing strategic combat and a captivating ensemble of characters in this tactical, real-time action game with a light-hearted, emotional center.

In this gourmet event story, Sensei visits the Shanhaijing Academy, where tensions between the Black Tortoise Promenade and Genryumon culinary clubs have reached total chaos. Players can team up and resolve their rivalry before the clubs are forever divided by controversy and earn a Card Bundle that they can use to unlock new furniture, including a Chinese Hot Food Display and Luxurious Chinese Chair.

To expand the world of Blue Archive even further, Kivotos welcomes the addition of Explosive-type Striker Rumi, whose EX skill not only heals a squad member with a serving of fried rice but also extends the tasty remedy to four additional allies. By her side is Explosive-type Striker Mina, who unleashes an EX Skill that deals powerful damage linked to her ATK level on a single enemy, while reducing their ATK, Evasion and Accuracy for 50 seconds.

Adding to the excitement, the 23rd Chapter of the main content Missions and related Missions are now available, alongside three new T8 gears. Additionally, players are in for a treat or two with the Double Rewards Campaign, during which players can earn double rewards by completing Bounty, Commission, and Lesson content until Monday, Dec. 18 at 6:59 PM (UTC).
