Genshin Impact is currently in development by miHoYo. The JRPG is set to launch on PS4, Android, iOS and PC later this month, with a Switch version coming at a later date.
Genshin Impact just got a new trailer. The splendidly animated new short offers the viewers a quick glimpse into the upcoming game's story.
The new trailer - The Boy and the Whirlwind - has been taken in a new direction and features a gorgeous, animated style, in lieu of the actual in-game footage, probably to keep from enraging any more of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's passionate fans.
Genshin Impact's new story teaser The Boy and the Whirlwind was shared with the description:
"The sitting Anemo Archon, Barbatos, was once a single, shapeless wisp among the thousand winds.
In Old Mondstadt, ruled by the lord of storms, he encountered a young boy..."
The story trailer's narration is spoken in verse which is a perfect fit for its animation style. Even though it has been criticised for heavily borrowing inspiration from Zelda: Breath of the Wild in some areas, Genshin Impact looks like it's shaping up to be its very own game.
The upcoming JRPG boasts a large cast of characters and a fine variety of locations to travel and explore.
