How to Get Kafka in Honkai: Star Rail

Please don't bark at a 2D character I beg you

The first hour of Honkai: Star Rail is confusing, to say the least. The game throws you various concepts and terminologies that are literally too alien for your brain to understand, but there are also those neat graphics and smooth gameplay that make you wanna you keep going. But even more than that, you might or might not be entranced by the mysterious Kafka, the Stellar Hunter who brings our protagonist into this world.

We get to see what she’s capable of during her brief battles, but that’s just not enough! I want to see more of her! This is a gacha game, for god’s sake. There must be a way to get her as a playable character, right?! Well, the answer might disappoint you.

Kafka will be officially playable as of August 9th, and she’s not officially playable yet in the game You can find plenty of gameplay videos featuring her around Youtube, but they all date from Closed Beta Tests, where the initial rooster of characters (and some of the next ones) were all available for testing purposes. In other words, they don’t hail from the live servers, where no one can get her yet.

You won’t find her in the permanent banner or in the game’s Data Bank (accessible through your room in the Astral Express), so we don’t have almost anything about her. She shows up at later story moments, but had no official release date yet.

When is Kafka Coming to Honkai: Star Rail?

Having her as playable in the game’s tutorial implies that her character is readily available for you to play, right? No, not even close. As we just mentioned, her first debut banner will be here on August 9th, lasting for 21 days until she’s gone forever! Or at least until she gets a rerun, which usually happens after 4 to 6 months.

She’s definitely that one character that instantly captivated the audience’s hearts, for various different reasons that you certainly know well enough at this point. She merely needs to exist and hype will build itself around her. And that’s exactly what’s happening right now, as I’m definitely pulling for her when she’s around.
