Genshin Impact developer MiHoYo released a new trailer teasing more of the story that you’ll be able to enjoy in the upcoming action-RPG .

The trailer focuses on the story of a lyre-playing boy who gains the power of the wind.

You can check out the video below.

The sitting Anemo Archon, Barbatos, was once a single, shapeless wisp among the thousand winds. In Old Mondstadt, ruled by the lord of storms, he encountered a young boy…

Incidentally, the boy definitely looks like Venti, one of the playable characters of the game.

“Likes apples and lively places, but is not a fan of cheese or anything sticky.

When using his Anemo power to control the wind, it often appears as feathers, as he’s fond of that which appears light and breezy.”

If you want to see more of Genshin Impact, you can enjoy two trailers introducing Keqing and Mona, the previous traileran earlier promotion video, another from Chinajoy,  one from a few weeks ago the opening cutascene, and  two trailers introducing Fischl. You can also read our recent hands-on preview.

The game launches on September 28 for PS4, PC, iOS, and Android, with a Switch version also planned down the line.
