HoYoverse recently announced a collaboration with Japanese animation studio Ufotable to design and develop an anime TV series based on the popular RPG mobile game, Genshin Impact.

Information about this is still scarce as its currently in its early stages of development. However, we've put together all the information we know about it into one trusty guide. Here's everything you need to know about the Genshin Impact anime.

Genshin Impact Anime - Release Date

The Genshin Impact anime has no official release date as of yet.

The collaboration between HoYoverse and Ufotable was only announced on September 16. In their statement, they mention that the "project between Genshin Impact and Ufotable has begun" which suggests that the anime is only in its early stages of development. That means it could be long before we get word of an official release date.

Genshin Impact Anime - Characters

From the concept trailer, Paimon, Aether, and Lumine are three characters that will be appearing in the Genshin Impact anime. We can expect the cast to consist of more characters from the game, but that information is yet to be released.

Let's take a look at the confirmed Genshin Impact anime characters.

The Traveler twins, Aether and Lumine, will be making an appearance in the Genshin Impact anime. They are the characters we get to choose from at the beginning of the Genshini Impact storyline.

Genshin Impact Anime - Locations

So far, only three locations have been revealed to be making an appearance in the Genshin Impact anime: Dragonspine, Mondstadt, and the Statues of the Seven. Granted, the anime will be set in the Genshin world of Teyvat, so we're more than likely to see other famous locations from the game.

Let's go over all the locations we know so far.

Dragonspine is a colossal mountain that houses the ruins of Durin and is perpetually engulfed in snow. Before Durin's downfall, Dragonspine was known as Vindagnyr. But to this day, it is still known as one of the most dangerous places in Teyvat.


Mondstadt GI
