A Genshin Impact anime wouldn’t come as a surprise but this announcement will blow off the socks off any aspiring adventurer. They are combining forces with ufotable (best known for their work on Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba).
The trailer primarily focuses on the vast landscapes and sprawling sceneries of Teyvat. We are then given a first look through Paimon who guides us through a forest. This could very well be Wolvendom which is a subarea in Windwail Highland, Mondstadt.
The most dramatic scene is not the beauty of Teyvat but seeing Genshin Impact’s two protagonists, Lumine and Aether, standing hand-in-hand. This is particularly impactful as we have never seen the twins alongside each other as the overarching story of Genshin is an adventure to find their lost twin.
At this juncture, without any voice actors, release date, or plot details its hard to say if this project might even come to fruition. Ultimately, it could be a spin-off or an adaption of the Archon Quest main story in the game.
At the same time, Genshin Impact’s 3.1 has just been detailed as well. Highlights include:
- Sumeru area extended by adding a huge desert area.
- King Deshret’s Mausoleum, dangerous dungeons, and new Archon Quests with two Fatui Harbingers
- Two new Boss Enemies: Semi-Perpetual Control Matrix and Blightdrake with new Character Level-up Materials.
- Nilou, Cyno, and Candace joining as playable characters from Sumeru.
- Reunion with Razor and other old friends in Monstadt’s festival Weinlesefest.
Genshin Impact’s 3.1 patch will arrive 28 September 2022. Can’t wait!
