About Genshin Impact

From the Creators of Honkai Impact

Front Screenshot 1.jpeg

Genshin Impact is the newest release from miHoYo, creators of popular mobile gacha titles “Honkai Gakuen” and “Honkai Impact 3rd”. Although these titles weren't marketed as strongly overseas, miHoYo has already made a name for themselves with the Japanese gaming public.

Now, with Genshin Impact, miHoYo expands to a new level with a PS4 release and fully-open world game design.

For those who love Anime and Beautiful Graphics

Front Screenshot 2.jpeg

Genshin Impact received substantial press with a label of “Breath of the Wild but anime”, but this is not necessarily a drawback. The lush landscape of the fantasy world of Teyvat combine with the anime influences popular in Japanese mobile games to create a unique fusion of the two styles.

As the developers have explored the story and world of the game heavily in pre-release contents, we're excited to see more of the lore and complete layout of the world upon the game's release.

Use Elements to Battle and Solve Puzzles

Front Screenshot 3.jpegEnlarge Front Screenshot 4.jpegEnlarge

Players use a mechanic called Elements to both employ battle techniques and solve out-of-battle puzzles. With a total of seven elements, players are able to combine techniques from different elmeents to achieve a variety of elemental reactions.

For example, players can take out certain enemies more easily by using the appropriate elemental attack, melt frozen objects using the fire element, and much more.
