How are you? I am Yongha Kim, Executive PD for Blue Archive.
With this update, Chapter 3 of The Eden Treaty,
has concluded. What did you think of it?
The Main Story is beginning to pick up some serious momentum now,
and this update served as an important clue for the story's future.
So, I highly encourage any Senseis that have not caught up to the story yet to please do so.
Next, I'd like to tell you about the BIG update coming in early September.
It will include the “Schale's Happy Valentine Patrol”
& “Kosaka Wakamo's Silence and Feast” event stories and
a Valentine’s event where you can receive chocolate from students.
I hope you can enjoy a sweet and thrilling Valentine’s Day in Kivotos.
Along with the Valentine’s Event, there will also be a Fest
(short for “festival”) where 3-Star character group Pick-Up rates' total sum will be doubled
(Original: 2.5% → During Fest: 5.0%) and a “StartDash” Login Event where you can receive
various rewards such as 2 10x Recruitment Tickets for all Senseis.
In addition, there are various convenience features to be added.
One specific feature to be added is the “Gear Tier Bulk Growth” feature
that will help grow various equipment more easily.
We hope this makes things a bit more convenient for every Sensei.
Since the update is scheduled to include more content than usual,
patch notes will be posted a bit earlier than usual as well—eight days before the update.
You can enjoy a preview experience of the in-game events through the Pre-Registration page.
So please enjoy a wonderful time with the students of Kivotos.
Of course, don’t forget to plan for Wakamo’s ambush...
The entire dev team worked passionately on this event, and we hope you enjoy it.
Also, do you know even any potential Senseis in your life that would enjoy Blue Archive?
This is a great time to begin playing, so we would appreciate you spreading the word!
Now, I'd like to touch on the somewhat long-term vision and direction for future updates.
Our goal is to standardize the predicted rotations of the Korean/Global Service and pre-Service areas.
As we noted during launch, the schedule is adjusted frequently.
As a result, the current gap between the two is about 7 months.
We’re working hard to bring new content a bit more quickly and
reduce that gap, within reason in regard to working constraints.
Currently, our dev team’s goal is to reduce the gap by 1 month by early next year,
and we will work to immediately notify Senseis of any changes
in the schedule as soon as they are finalized.
Of course, we understand that the changes in update speed
may cause some concern, so we will ensure ways to mitigate any issues as well.
We ask for your understanding in advance and, in this update,
have provided a total of a 100 Recruitments for 10 days after the Fest.
We hope this will be the opportunity you need to recruit any student’s you’re missing.
Finally, thank you so much for always taking interest in Blue Archive and supporting us.
Both myself and the entire development, operation,
and business teams are inspired by our Senseis' passion.
We intend to meet your expectations by continually
considering and preparing new ways we can improve our game.
So, I hope you'll look forward to what comes next!
