Honkai Impact 3rd (Chinese: 崩坏3; Japanese: 崩壊3rd) is an anime-styled, free-to-play RPG featuring combat that takes a lot of hints from popular series like Devil May Cry and Bayonetta. Players can string together various well-timed combos as well as activate powerful effects when dodging attacks with precision. Certain stages or events feature bullet hell, platforming, and even dungeon crawling elements. Players obtain items both through gameplay and gacha. Gacha requires a currency called "Crystals", which can be earned or bought with real money.
