Amazon, Bandai Namco are taking on the Genshin effect with Blue Protocol on the PS5



Bandai Namco’s anime-inspired free-to-play MMO Blue Protocol will launch on PS5 in the second half of 2023, as confirmed during The Game Awards today. Interestingly, the project – which was originally only announced for PC in Japan – has been picked up by Amazon Games, which will help bring the product to the Western market.

It’s hard not to draw comparisons here to Genshin Impact, which quickly became one of the world’s biggest and most successful games with its vibrant cel-shaded art style and gacha game mechanics. But while Amazon Games says there will be in-game microtransactions for cosmetics and other trinkets, it stressed that its goal is to make sure the release is fair for everyone.

Also, despite being an MMO, it’s important to underline that you’ll be able to play solo if you prefer. Online co-op will also be available for those who want to join in, including raids for up to 30 players.
