9-minute English-subtitled promotional video features students on shopping trip
The “Summer Blue Archive Live! 1.5th Anniversary Special” event marked the “1.5th anniversary” of Yostar and Nexon Games’ Blue Archive smartphone role-playing game with several developments, including an animated promotional video short. Yostar Pictures produced the nine-minute short, which features the students from the different schools going shopping at a department store. The video is now streaming with English subtitles:
Nexon describes the original game’s story:
The city’s academies are divided into their own
districts and are considered mostly independent.
The General Student Council acts as governing
board to manage the academies as a whole.
However, the group’s ability to govern has come to
halt since the mysterious disappearance of the
General Student Council president. Countless issues
have begun to surface throughout Kivotos in the
absence of the president’s leadership.
To avoid disaster, the General Student Council
requests assistance from the Federal Investigation
Club, otherwise known as Schale. In fact, Schale is
the city’s newest club and the last to be approved
before the president’s disappearance.
To accomplish its task, Schale relies on the guidance
of a Sensei who can help them resolve the incidents
(Students are required to carry personal weapons
and smart phones! Get a taste of the military action,
love, and friendship the Academy City has to offer!)
The Korean game studio and Nexon subsidiary NAT Games (now known as Nexon Games) developed Blue Archive, and Yostar Japan first launched the game in Japan on February 4, 2021. Nexon published the global version on November 8. The game is free to play with optional randomized in-app purchases.
