In addition to the AF-S Nikkor 28mm F1.4E ED, 8-15mm F3.5-4.5E ED fisheye and AF-P 10-20mm F4.5-5.6G VR lenses Nikon also announced the new Arcrest line of ‘professional-grade’ protection filters. The Arcrest filters are available in 67mm, 72mm, 77mm, 82mm and 95mm diameters and, according to Nikon, can survive heavy impacts while only having a minimal impact on image quality.

The filters are 2mm thick and come with special coatings that minimize color balance disturbance, reduce ghosting and flares and repel water/oil/dirt. Nikon says they are also less prone to ghosting when shooting night scenes.

It appears that at least for now the Arcrest line will only be released in the Japanese market. Prices range from ¥9,680 ($88) for the 67mm filter to ¥25,799 ($234) for the largest diameter version. The product page on the Nikon Japan website offers a good selection of sample images and comparison shots against filters from competing brands.
