Earlier in the year, HoYoverse unveiled an animated short for Honkai: Star Rail with co-production by Fantasier Animation and Studio ppuri.

The story for the animated short is described:

Year 7380 Star Calendar, Jingliu, the mara-stricken swordmaster of the Luofu, slashed her way out of Starskiff Haven, cutting through the Cloud Knights tasked to subdue her before vanishing in the mist of history. 
Year 8096 Star Calendar, a young soldier named Yanqing rose to fame from the tournament hosted by the Seat of Divine Foresight, and was conferred the rank of Cloud Knight Lieutenant. 
“The years pass in a flash, cups of wine the only solace.” 
A fleeting flash — thus is the speed of swift blades as the master and her student spar, and thus is the passage of the unceasing torrent of time. 

Just how long has it been? 

His duel with his master, centuries ago, still rippled like a memory from yesterday. 
But the few years between now and when he took in the boy as his student felt like a lifetime. 
Time gallops, swift as a stallion, sudden as a lightning strike, agonizing as a blade that runs him through. And yet, it feels like everything has always been the same. 

The same developer’s other major work, Genshin Impact, is also available on both PS4 and PS5.
