The first few moments of an MMORPG are certainly the most impactful, and in this new look from Bandai-Namco’s upcoming Blue Protocol, that first impression should be impressive. The latest developer video has about an hour’s worth of gorgeous things to look at, including some character creation footage and the first few opening moments after that point.

While we’ve had a couple of peeks at character creation before, this one gives a bit more detail on what’s possible when building your perfect anime avatar. Body sliders do appear rather limited, but there’s plenty of other things to adjust, including all of the improbable hairstyles and hair colors you could possibly imagine.

The video then kicks off the very first moments of the game, including one of the first fights your character will get in to, some of the initial story beats, and an absolutely gorgeous starting area. If you’re a fan of this visual style, watching the game in action will be a legitimate joy. The video also offered a few more screenshots of some of the NPCs, monsters, and locations in the game.

If you just can’t get enough of Blue Protocol videos, then you’ll want to perhaps check out some closed beta class videos shared on Reddit, as well as a fansub for the closed beta trailer. We’ve embedded that below along with the gameplay demonstration from the devs.

I’ll be honest, I’m intrigued.

However, if they get arbitrary about dumb things like global cooldowns and no ability to queue the next ability activation, especially if it’s an action-oriented game like it looks to be, then that interest will evaporate.

No dedicated support class(es) is a real turn off.

I love the style and the graphics! It reminds me my childhood and the kid movies I watched when I was young! It just brings a smile to my face every time I see the video and the world they built.

Is there any non-video information about this game available? Google only sends me to the non-English website and info about the closed beta.

There was a website called Blueprotocoldatabase where they posted leaks, datamine, and even some tracks from the OST but for some reason it’s down

Art reminds me about that Nexon game, Pieria Chronicles or something. Digging the visuals, will be keeping an eye on this.

I’m not an anime fan, but this game looks gorgeous.

I could not be more excited for this game. The art style and combat seem like this game was made for me and my friends.
