RUNN” in their recent half-year YouTube Official Stream. Steve Aoki also greeted all players in the Arknights community, indicating a likelihood of future collaborations with Arknights.

The steady partnership between Arknights and Steve Aoki’s record label Dim Mak began in early 2020. Bear Grillz’s soundtrack “Save Us From Ourselves” signaled the first step of Arknights’ music project, followed by QUIX’s soundtrack “Survive”, and now “Last of Me ft. RUNN”. Each soundtrack transcends boundaries between game and music genres, and symbolizes both Arknights’ and Dim Mak’s artistic vision. Gradually blending various, unique elements into the music world, Arknights has made its music project one of the most iconic features of this game.
Inspired by Arknights’ dystopian worldview and plot, Steve Aoki created “Last of Me ft. RUNN” as the official theme song for Chapter 6 – Partial Necrosis. This song was first revealed in the former Arknights official YouTube stream as a short cel shaded animation teaser, depicting the intense conflict between Yeti Squad and Lungmen L.G.D. Differing from the past three 2D music videos, this time Arknights expands its footprint with a special cel shaded animation to reappear at the climax in Chapter 6. Players will be able to witness FrostNova’s final battle one more time, with Steve’s epic soundtrack serving as a fitting background.
Besides high-quality music video collaborations, Arknights dropped another bomb on its community during the YouTube stream—merchandise collaborations with DJ Duo Yellow Claw and Steve Aoki’s record label Dim Mak.
The official launch date for this merchandise remains unknown, but fans of both Arknights and EDM can enjoy the beats while they wait for the next official announcement.
