A new Honkai: Star Rail leak from stepleaker showed the in-game model for Hanabi, a five-star Quantum character that will be released in version 1.6. It looks like Hanabi wears a red dress decorated with a golden thread and daisy patterns. The character will allegedly appear on a loading screen, where she wears a skin-colored goofy mask made up of black glasses, a red nose, and facial hair. It has already been leaked that Hanabi is a member of the Masked Fools, a mysterious organization devoted to Honkai Star Rail‘s Aha The Elation. It’s no surprise that she puts on a mask that makes her look like a mascot.
Honkai: Star Rail players on the Reddit thread expressed their thoughts on Hanabi’s design, with some claiming that she looks better with the mask. Her colorful dress and accessories make the character look stylish, reminding some people of Genshin Impact‘s Hu Tao. It’s worth noting that Hanabi is still early in the works, which means this in-game model can change at any time.
There isn’t any concrete information about Hanabi’s story and abilities yet. Some recent leaks revealed that she will have a five-star rarity and follow the Harmony path. She will probably be a support character who can improve her team’s defensive capabilities. Hanabi will appear in Honkai: Star Rail version 1.6, which will be released in early 2024.
Honkai: Star Rail is available now on PC and mobile devices, with a PS5 version releasing on October 11.
