SEOUL May 11, 2022Blue Archive quickly became one of anime RPG fans’ favorite games when it launched on mobile last year. Now Nexon is treating the game’s fervent community to a special “half-aversary” event, the “Blue Archive Awards.” The celebration invites players to contribute their own unique experiences from the game for community voting in four different categories. The contest is open now and runs through Sunday, May 22. Winners will be announced on May 27.

To participate, players are encouraged to read the submission guidelines on the official Blue Archive website. They can submit to any of four categories, sharing their individual priceless memories in:

  • Interior Expert – Players show off how they decorated the interior of their Schale Café;
  • Academy Wordsmith – Players write about their life in Kivotos, sharing how they deeply feel about Blue Archive
  • Artist of Kivots – This is all about creative artwork as players submit Blue Archive and 0.5-Year Anniversary-themed writings, artworks, videos, music or figurines for voting;
  • Schale Field Captain – Players express how Blue Archive fits in their daily life, sharing how meaningful the game is to them.

In the Blue Archive Awards, the community members are the judges as each player can vote for up to five submissions each day. All players who submit for the content will be rewarded with in-game currency Pyroxene. Category winners will be awarded with Google Play Gift Cards and more. Winning entries will be showcased on the event website when winners are announced on Friday, May 27.
Details for the Blue Archive Awards can be found on the official event page.
“The Blue Archive Awards are a special, unique contest that represents the passion and creativity of the entire Blue Archive player community,” Nexon Publishing Marketing Manager Jiseung Choi said. “We hope players have a lot of fun showing off their unique personalities and fun ideas that are at the very heart of the game’s content.”
Developed by NAT GAMES, Blue Archive follows a group of adventurous schoolgirls as they navigate romance, school clubs, academic events – and the occasional battle with rival schools. Players take on the role of the students’ teacher and guide them as they investigate incidents throughout the city.
Blue Archive is available on Android and iOS devices in 237 countries and supports multiple languages including English, Korean, Thai and Chinese (traditional).
