Genshin Impact Is Becoming an Anime
Genshin Impact is officially becoming an anime as developer HoYoverse has announced a new collaboration with animation studio Ufotable.
Announced during the game's Version 3.1 Special Programme, a three-minute concept trailer (that was later shared on the official Genshin Impact Twitter, below) showed off the art style and feel of what the anime will eventually be.
Given that this is just a concept trailer, it will likely be some time before the final episodes are released, and HoYoverse have branded this as a "long-term project".

The video does give us a brief teaser, however. "Let's step into this vast magical world of adventure together," its description reads. "The long-term collaboration project between Genshin Impact and ufotable has begun."
For those unfamilar, Genshin Impact is one of the biggest games that released in 2020. Inspired by anime from the start, the action RPG has players travel throughout an open world in search of the Archons of the seven elements.
It's also seen a ton of updates since it first launched, adding new characters, quests, items, and more, and has even seen crossovers with other franchises including Horizon: Zero Dawn. As with every new version stream, three new codes for Genshin Impact's premium currency and other rewards were released too.
In our 9/10 review, IGN said: "An incredible open-world and addictive exploration make Genshin Impact anime-zing adventure."
