| Blue Archive

Nexon has announced a festive new update for Blue Archive, letting players enjoy the holiday spirit months in advance within the mobile RPG. In particular, players can expect to dive into a charity drive in "Cathedra’s Merry Christmas: Remedial Knights’ Gift", because who says Christmas should only come once?

In the latest update for Blue Archive, players can look forward to welcoming two new students to the fray: Serina (Christmas) and Hanae (Christmas). There will also be two episodes of the mini-stories "The Red Winter Tour Log", where players can learn more about the students in a different way. More episodes will be released further down the road.

To top it all off, a new Furniture item, the Warm Christmas Fireplace, will be available on the 7th day.
