Genshin Impact update 1.3 is out next week, with the major new patch from miHoYo going live on Wednesday February 3. But if you’re looking for something to keep you busy then miHoYo’s other hit game Honkai Impact 3rd has just got a huge new content drop. This week saw the release of the Honkai Impact 3rd x Neon Genesis Evangelion collab.

The limited time event runs between January 22 and February 21, and lets players take control of Asuka Langley (the best character in Neon Genesis Evangelion).

Not only is the EVA Unit 02 pilot available as a playable character, but the new version 4.5 update also gives the Honkai Impact UI an Evangelion-themed fresh lick of paint.

The free-to-play mobile’s game background music has also changed in keeping with the Evangelion theme.

If you’re an Evangelion fan this is a simply unmissable event, which should help build up the hype levels even further for Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 Thrice Upon a Time.

The new Evangelion film was scheduled to launch this month in Japan, but recently was hit with a fresh release delay.

If you want to unlock Asuka in Honkai Impact 3rd you simply need to log in and play the New Century collab event while it’s running.

In a post online miHoYo explained: “Play the collab event [New Century] from 10:00, JAN 22 to 04:00, FEB 21 to unlock [Asuka] and rank her up to S for free.

“You are guaranteed to receive Asuka’s SP battlesuit [Blazing Hope] in 25 [Blazing Hope Supply] drops! This Supply is available from 12:00, JAN 22 to 12:00, FEB 21.

“Reach drop count milestones to unlock bonus [Blazing Hope Fragments], aggregating [Blazing Hope Fragment] x100 for 100 drops!”

While speaking about the New Century Evangelion event, miHoYo added: “The awakened otherworld traveler. The invading unidentified creature.

“The berserk colossal mech. The wheels began turning when a girl named Mei set foot in [Nagazora]. Apostles bearing the name of Angels are approaching.

“Can the girls engulfed by the war stay true to their hearts?

“Participate in the event from JAN 22 to 04:00, FEB 21 to obtain [Blazing Hope Fragment] x100, outfit [Auburn Sync PS], stigma [Misato (T)], and Crystals for free!”
