A video compares the controversial game: Genshin Impact that will soon reach PS4 with the title developed by Nintendo: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Genshin Impact is a controversial game by the developer miHoYo that, together with PC and mobile devices, reaches PS4 surrounded by controversy. And there are many fans who point out a huge resemblance to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the classic Nintendo game.
A video of the Funcestor YouTube channel puts the two titles side by side to try to show the similarities and differences between the two games. The similarities are more than evident with Link’s recent adventure, but some fans claim that Genshin Impact also shares elements with the Tri-Crescendo Eternal Sonata.
The controversy over these similarities recently led a fan to tear apart his PS4 in protest at the resemblance during a major video game event held in China. Without a doubt, and beyond the claim that the imitation of the aesthetics of other successful games may entail, miHoYo is achieving great social visibility thanks to this debate.
Genshin Impact is an anime open-world RPG that was inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It features dungeon instances and 4-player coop, but it is not an MMORPG. It is currently in its beta phases and is expected to release in Spring 2020.
Genshin Impact is set in a fantasy world called Teyvat. You will be playing as “The Traveler,” who awakens from a long sleep on the shore alone, loses connection with their sibling, and has scarce knowledge of this mysterious land. To unveil the riddle of this enigmatic land and achieve the ultimate goal of reuniting with your kin, you bravely set off with the cute, kind-hearted Paimon.
Inspired by the scientific reaction, Genshin Impact features a natural elemental interaction system for the purpose of puzzle-solving, combat and exploration. Characters have control over one of seven natural elements, such as Pyro, Hyrdo, Electro, Anemo, Dendro etc. which allows them to showcase unique and powerful elemental attacks.
