Developer MiHoYo released two new trailers of its upcoming Open-World Action RPG Genshin Impact.
The trailers focus on a brand new character, Fischl, princess of Verurteilung and “ruler of the ashen darkness.”
Watching the video you’ll probably notice that she fits a very specific anime trope, the character affected by Chuunibyou, or Eighth-Grader Syndrome.
You’ll notice pretty much all the symptoms, including the theatrical moves, and the “evil eye,” with a bit of oujosama laugh sprinkled on top.
Apparently, her real name is Amy, but don’t call her like that, unless you’re her dad.
You can check both videos out below.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, you can read about the story below.
“You have arrived in Teyvat — a fantasy world where the seven elements flow and converge.
In the distant past, the Archons granted mortals unique elemental abilities. With the help of such powers, people formed a bountiful homeland out of the wilderness. However, 500 years ago, the collapse of an ancient civilization turned the universe upside down…
Though the calamity the world suffered has ceased, peace has yet to be restored.
You, as the main character, are a traveler drifted from another world who has awoken in this land. You will explore this wondrous world freely, make friends along the way, and look for “The Seven” — Archons of the seven elements. Every piece of your adventure will unearth something miraculous, and the lost will eventually be found.”
The game is coming for PC, iOS, Android, PS4, and Swtch.
Recently, Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida mentioned MiHoYo as an example of the momentum enjoyed by developers from Asia.
