Genshin Impact was announced at E3 and now has a gameplay trailer that debuted at ChinaJoy 2019. The open world JRPG has been described as anime Breath of the Wild, which I can totally see, and which I’m totally here for. It’s supposed to come to PS4 sometime next year.

So this actually come from Mihoyo, a Chinese company better known for their Honkai Impact series which curiously have their own company website listed as mihayo dot com. Anyways it doesn’t come as a surprise that they totally copied the style and game design from BoTW, considering their country of origin.
