Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact developers Zelda Breath of the Wild

Genshin Impact is one of the most popular games around these days, but early on, one could argue that it struggled to find its identity with many comparing it to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The initial harsh reception seemed to have done a number on the development team.

During the Genshin Impact FES event, miHoYo president Lie Wei spoke about what it was like at the company when a video of the closed beta was released. Many didn’t really seem to understand what the title was going for, and again, the Zelda comparisons came about very often. Things were probably at the absolute worst at ChinaJoy in 2019 in which some fans protested and someone went as far as to smash their PS4 during the event.

MiHoYo has released a new story trailer for the character Zhongli. This almost three minute animated trailer takes a look at Zhongli and his profession, co-workers, and more.

Check out the full trailer below.

Genshin Impact is coming to Switch at a date to be announced by the developer.

As Genshin Impact gets ready for its Version 1.1 update this week, they’ve also given out details for upcoming character Tartaglia Childe. While we are still awaiting more information about the Switch release, the popular game continues to thrive. Additionally, a fresh set of trailers have arrived for the new character. Take a look at the information below courtesy of Gematsu:

Since Genshin Impact’s initial reveal, the open-world action RPG has drawn plenty of comparisons to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Developer miHoYo has now issued a statement about the matter.

Speaking with FreeMMOStation, miHoYo said that Nintendo’s Switch title was an inspiration, but says the two titles are ultimately different. The studio noted that “Genshin Impact features a fully original story and characters, and the core gameplay revolves around assembling a party of multiple characters and engaging in a combat system based on interactions between different elements.”
