The open-world RPG game, Honkai: Star Rail leaks hint at several character kits and animations unveiled well before their release.

The open-world RPG games have had a dark past in terms of facing leaks. But the developer that tops this list is miHoYo. Yet again, its newly released game, Honkai: Star Rail, faced a big leak just before its first update. Honkai: Star Rail character leaks have made the headlines in the gaming community.

Honkai: Star Rail is the new sensational space fantasy gacha RPG game that has destroyed the town. It has racked up around 24,930,344 players as of May 17, 2023. The developer, miHoYo, released the first update, 1.1, just now. 


  • Newly released game, Honkai: Star Rail has been a victim of several leaks
  • Over 20 characters have been leaked by leakers and insiders
  • Speculations suggest a remake of these characters by miHoYo

But this update did not bring good news for the firm. Leakers and insiders have already leaked a list of character kits and animations. Experts have estimated this leak to cover several months of development. Consequently, this leak has tarnished the dark repute of miHoYo in terms of leaks even further, especially after the notorious Genshin Impact leaks. 

If you do not know about Honkai: Star Rail: the game, inspired by classic Japanese RPGs, lets players construct a four-member team for turn-based combat, incorporating open-world exploration and dungeon mechanics, including the gacha system from Genshin Impact.

Set in a science-fantasy universe, players take on the role of the Trailblazer, awakening on a space station with no memory and discovering their connection to a powerful cosmic entity called Stellaron. Joining the Trailblazers, an adventurous group, they journey across worlds aboard the Astral Express, a space train, unraveling the mysteries of their existence.

Moreover, you assemble a powerful team in the gameplay by selecting from various free 4-Star characters to embark on an engaging story. As you progress and accumulate Stellar Jades through quests and leveling up your roster, you can utilize them to make wishes on the Warp Banner, providing an opportunity to obtain exclusive 5-Star exclusive characters.

According to the leaks, the main characters leaked along with their star categorization, paths, and elements as follows:

  • Xueyi (4-Star) – Quantum/The Destruction: Her skill is 150% of ATK damage to an enemy while inflicting damage on surrounding enemies too. She gains 6 layers of Vendetta when faced with a tenacity attack.

In addition, many speculations are surfacing that if the leaks affect the game, the faith of stakeholders, or the audience, the developers will take a dramatic turn to change the character details.

Hence, this proves that miHoyo is in deep waters once again. How do you think miHoYo would respond to these leaks, and what will be their response?
