Get your device ready for a trailblazing journey across the galaxy.

Honkai: Star Rail is a turn-based, JRPG-inspired game by Genshin Impact developer HoYoverse (miHoYo), where you can jump aboard the Astral Express and trailblaze across the galaxy. If you're excited to start your journey, you first need to find a suitable device to play on.

Currently, Star Rail is supported across PC, Android, and iOS operating systems, all of which are also controller-compatible. We like playing on every platform, so let's talk about how powerful your devices first need to be to run the game at 60 FPS.
