It’s official! After years of pleading, the team behind Genshin Impact finally heard us. Earlier today, Hoyovere announced that it is developing an anime for Genshin Impact, with the studio behind Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba overseeing the project.

The announcement was made during the last Genshin Impact live stream, and it’s safe to say that few people saw the update coming. Hoyovere used ufotable to produce the anime. What’s more, the pair call their partnership a “long-term project.” This means we’ll likely get a lot of anime titles focused on Genshin Impact, so fans can prepare for a wave of new content.

At this time, there is no word on which project will come out of this partnership first. Ufotable and Hoyovere have released a concept trailer that highlights their vision for the anime. As you can see above, the reel is gorgeous and visits several key landmarks from Genshin Impact. So if we had to guess, the anime will probably start where the game’s archon quests take place, and tackle the city of freedom, Mondstat, when it falls.

This announcement surprised many, but is nothing but welcome. Genshin Impact fans have been begging for an anime since the game’s live-action debut. The anime-inspired visuals of the title made it easy to imagine what a full-fledged anime might look like. Of course, rumors of a possible adaptation surfaced again and again, but never materialized. But today, all the expectations of the fandom paid off.

There is currently no set release window for the first Genshin Impact anime. Hoyover’s team has a lot on their plate with the IP as it is. Not too long ago, the game introduced its newest nation, Sumeru, and update 3.0 has a lot to share. Another update will join the game later this month, and it plans to introduce players to the vast desert region of Sumer.

Hoyovere announced on Friday that Genshin Impact will receive an anime series, created in collaboration with Japanese animation studio Ufotable, which is known for creating popular worldwide anime series such as Demon Slayer.

The developers revealed a first look and concept trailer for the series as part of a developer stream on Friday. The series, which appears to be in the early stages of development, does not yet have an official title. At this point, it’s simply referred to as “Long Term Project Launch: Concept Trailer”.

The trailer teases a lush, sprawling world and then shows the two protagonists of Genshin Impact, Lumine and Aether, standing hand in hand. It’s a dramatic scene considering the video game never actually allows players to see the twins standing side by side. The whole point of this video game is for players to go on an adventure to find their lost twin.

Genshin Impact celebrates its two-year anniversary later this month.

This free-to-play game sends players on a fantasy adventure that explores multiple regions based on real-world countries. The game is known for its stunning environmental scenery, and it looks like the anime series will lean into these design elements. On Friday, the developers revealed new details that players can expect in the upcoming patch 3.1.
