Oh man, anime enthusiasts must be super happy this year. Today I want to talk about Genshin Impact, a Chinese Action-RPG. Yes, Action-RPG. Not an MMORPG, Action-RPG. Truthfully, I didn’t hear about this game until very recently. However, after watching the trailer you can call me “emotionally invested”. This game is beautiful, simply put. Colorful with the art style to complement it. Recently this year we have been seeing a rise in anime-inspired games such as Zenith, Blue Protocol, and probably a lot more to be announced in this upcoming Gamescon.
I was able to do a little research on it with my limited understanding of the Chinese language. This is what we know so far.
- It recently finished beta testing in China.
- It’s being developed by miHoYo, creators of the acclaimed mobile action RPG Honkai Impact 3rdGenshin Impact.
- From the closed beta, you can choose 8 characters with more on the way. Each character comes with a specific weapon or attack, including swords, bow and arrow, halberd or magic tomes.
- Combat looks insanely fast-paced almost similar to Kurtzpel.
“While not an MMORPG, Genshin Impact allows you to invite other players to your game world, roaming the land with friends by your side. However, when they return to their own worlds, it will be exactly the same as when they left it.”
That’s essentially all we can find for now. But keep your eyes out for this game!
