Amazon Games and Bandai Namco Online have announced that they will be bringing the anime-inspired MMORPG Blue Protocol to the west.
Blue Protocol will be free-to-play, and will launch for PC, Xbox Series X/S and PS5 in the second half of 2023, with a closed beta on PC earlier in the year.
A trailer for the game, which debuted at The Game Awards on Thursday, is viewable below.

“Blue Protocol is a beautifully crafted game; it’s like an anime come to life,” said Amazon Games VP Christoph Hartmann. “Bandai Namco Online has created a world of the highest quality with a compelling story that will build community and immerse players in an action-packed adventure. As anime continues to rise in popularity globally, we look forward to bringing Blue Protocol to players in the West next year.”
Blue Protocol, which is co-developed by Bandai Namco Online and Bandai Namco Studios, takes players on a heroic journey through Regnas, a world teetering on the brink of destruction after millennia of conflict and technology overuse.
“Players must unite and harness the mysterious light called Flux to defeat powerful foes,” according to today’s announcement. “Players can fully customize their character, and choose from five unique classes at launch: the sturdy Blade Warden, the valiant Twin Striker, the versatile Keen Strider, the multifaceted Spell Weaver, or the damage-dealing Foe Breaker. Aided by Echoes, mystical summoned creatures with powerful attacks, players will unlock their memories and fight to save the world.”
