Genshin Impact was a game project from MiHoYo, based on a manga of the same name that was released back in mid-2018. The manga revolves about a world named Teyvat, which was blessed by the 7 Elemental Archons. But one day, humans want to get out of the Archon's shackles, waged a great war against their 'gods'. This war brings destruction towards the land of Teyvat, and Genshin Impact is the story about its recovery.

While the story for the game was not confirmed at the moment, it will no doubt being based on the manga. And also, the game was once sparked controversy when it was first announced, due to many similarities with another critical-acclaimed game from Nintendo - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. However, Nintendo did not comment on the matter, because those things are not a big problem at all - as the game was just inspired from BotW, and not a blatant rip-off like many people accused.

Genshin Impact will be available on Spring next year for PC and Smartphone, with a PS4 version follows shortly after. As for me, I'm really looking forward to it, as the manga of the game was really interesting. Along with that, MiHoYo was the devs of another favorite game of mine: Honkai Impact 3rd, which added more to my expectation for this.
