Blue Archive Part 1 Final Episode teased

Publisher Nexon has signaled that the end is coming for the main story its mobile RPG Blue Archive - the end of the first part, that is. The official site for the game now hosts a special countdown page for the "Part 1 Final Episode", the first portion of which debuts on July 21, 2023. The rest of the chapter will arrive in phases between July 21 and September 5, 2023.

These are the phases of the Blue Archive Part 1 Final Episode, formally titled "Where All Miracles Begin".

  • Operation Recapture Schale - July 21, 2023
  • Operational Plan: Nisir's Summit - July 25, 2023
  • The Ark of Atrahasis Conquest - August 22, 2023
  • Phrenapates Showdown - September 5, 2023

The premise of the Part 1 Final Episode involves a crisis engulfing Blue Archive's setting of Kivotos. The General Student Council, the city's governing body, convenes an Emergency Response Committee to deal with it, all the while strange anomalies sow chaos among the city's many schools. 

Subsequent phases of the event will mix in narrative-focused sequences and special game modes and challenges, culminating in the Phrenapates Showdown in September. Nexon Games will unveil more in a live stream on July 21, 2023. The stream will also feature an update to the game's content roadmap, teasing further developments in other parts of Blue Archive's ongoing narrative. Players will also be gifted Pyroxene premium currency with which to roll for new or desired characters on the game's gacha banners.

Of course, though these story developments are new to the global edition of the game, they did premiere late in 2022 on the Japanese server, along with the subsequent promo, which is embedded below:
