Blue Protocol, Bandai Namco’s upcoming MMORPG finally has a start date for its Japanese beta test. The test was originally delayed thanks to the coronavirus, but now it’s back on.

The closed beta test period won’t be a very long one. It’s effectively a long weekend test beginning on April 23 and ending on Sunday (April 26). There are, however, a few other dates players interested in participating will want to keep in mind. According to the schedule on the Blue Protocol site, information on CBT application results will be made available on March 30. (I believe this is their way of saying you’ll get an email letting you know if you’ve been accepted or not.) Between March 30 and April 6, there will be a friends invitation period as well. On April 20, those in the test will be able to download the game’s client and get everything set up.

You can view the full schedule at the link above. Just be sure to tell it to translate for you when it asks.

  1. I had no idea Blue Protocol had anything to do with “Black Clover”. CBT hasn’t even started and it’s already getting crossovers? Color me impressed.
