Over time, it is no longer strange for games to begin to penetrate deeper into the fields of adaptation. Notably, most of them achieved certain successes. A typical example is the famous TV series The Last of Us part 2, which has been making waves on HBO since its premiere. Or a little further, the animated film Cyberpunk: Edgerunners contributed significantly to saving the masterpiece Cyberpunk 2077. MiHoYo himself – the father of Genshin Impact – may have also realized the potential of this field. The proof is that this publisher announced that he will launch the anime version of Genshin Impact in 2022.
Accordingly, miHoYo will combine with famous studio Ufotable to carry out this project, and a 3-minute trailer revealing many images has also been released. But since then, almost no more news has been revealed by miHoYo. There is no official announcement, but the leaked content appears a lot. Accordingly, based on sources from some gamers, the animated version of Genshin Impact is being produced in parallel with the famous anime series Kimetsu no Yaiba. In addition, this project will have a very “terrible” content volume, beyond all imagination.
Specifically, the animated version of Genshin Impact is said to have more than 100 episodes and be produced and shown in many seasons over a long period of time. The entire storyline of the Teyvat region will be adapted and this promises to be the heaviest budget animated film project adapted from a game in history. In fact, gamers have every reason to wait when a story-heavy game like Genshin Impact will certainly have a lot of land for directors to exploit. Each character in the game itself has its own story and destiny, and if you want to do it in the most detailed way, it is understandable that the Genshin Impact anime has a long content period.
Of course, everything is still just a rumor and the truth about the Genshin Impact anime story is still kept very secret by miHoYo. However, it is likely that the two Travelers will become the main characters, or at least one of them.
