If you are interested in gaming and are aware of the recent developments in games, then you must have heard the name of Honkai: Star Rail. This video game developed by HoYoVerse will be the second instalment of the Honkai series. What is more interesting about the game is the fact that you will find some alternate versions of the characters from Honkai Impact 3rd, along with some new additions to the series.
