Video: Genshin Impact Gets A New, Gorgeously Animated Story Trailer 2

It was only a couple of weeks ago that we were last treated to a tease of Genshin Impact, but another new trailer has now arrived to give us another quick look at the game’s story.

This new video takes a different approach to its predecessor, opting for a gorgeous, animated style throughout. It’s called ‘The Boy and the Whirlwind’, and we have a quick description for you below.

The sitting Anemo Archon, Barbatos, was once a single, shapeless wisp among the thousand winds.

The game’s had quite the journey already – it’s been heavily criticised for being perhaps a little too similar to Zelda: Breath of the Wild in some areas, and an angry fan actually smashed up a PS4 during its reveal as a result – but it’s shaping up to be an interesting release with a huge cast and a nice variety of locations to explore.

It’s set to launch on PS4, Android, iOS and PC later this month, with the Switch version coming at a later date.

Are you thinking of buying this one? Let us know with a comment.
