Genshin Impact anime

Genshin Impact is getting its own anime series! And HoYoverse has tapped no less than Japanese animation studio Ufotable, which created the likes of “Demon Slayer”, to be its partner for this endeavor.

It is naturally starred by main characters Lumine and Aether – who both look amazing in an animated version.

Not only that, they are together in the trailer. It is a scene that doesn’t usually happen in the game as the twins search for each other in the game’s premise.

Watch the trailer here:

Genshin Impact Version 3.1 update out soon

Meanwhile, Genshin Impact’s Version 3.1 update, “King Deshret and the Three Magi” will be out on September 28.

More details have been unveiled, including the main area which is the desert of Sumeru. It’s a stark contrast to the usual tropical rainforest. At the heart of this desert stands the Mausoleum of King Deshret, dungeons full of puzzles, mechanisms, and robotic guardians.

The Aaru Village will also be found in the desert. It’s a settlement for the desert people, and as players explore the area more, more quests will unfold.

Three Sumeru characters, two boss enemies

Three Sumeru characters will be playable as allies in the teams: Nilou (five-star Hydro), Cyno (five-star Electro polearm wielder), and Candace.

Candace is the newest character among the three. She is a half-blood descendant of King Deshret himself and will debut as a guardian of the Desertfolk and village.

Two new boss enemies will likewise make their appearance: Semi-Perpetual Control Matrix, the leader of mechanics guarding the Mausoleum of King Deshret, and Aeonblight Drake who will challenge players in the rainforest. 

Mondstadt Festival Weinlesefest

Far from the desert, on the other hand, players will have the opportunity to reunite with friends in the Mondstadt via the annual Weinlesefest and help Razor uncover more about his past.

The Weinlesefest features a limited-time seasonal event and four mini-game. Players can redeem various rewards which includes a four-star weapon, the Missive Windspear.

Cyberpunk 2077 soars to 1M daily players after Edgerunners

The RPG gets a major milestone

Published

Cyberpunk Edgerunners

Following the release of its much-anticipated Edgerunners update and Netflix anime, Cyberpunk 2077 has reached a major milestone.

CD Projekt Red’s single-player, open-world sci-fi RPG has reached one million daily players (new and returning) ever since the patch was made available earlier in the month.

The Netflix anime, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners also debuted last September 13, further elevating the game’s popularity to new heights, so much so that is has become a Steam top seller yet again.

This achievement makes up for the game’s disastrous release in late 2020, when technical issues, particularly bugs, hounded its PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions.

Enhanced for Next-Gen consoles

The Edgerunners update enhanced the game for Next-Gen consoles. It also gave players an opportunity to access in-game goodies inspired by the anime series such as new wardrobe and fresh weapons, as well as a host of new features and content to dig into.

Set in the futuristic Night City, Cyberpunk 2077 revolves around its protagonist V, a mercenary outlaw who needs to secure a one-of-a-kind implant — the Relic — which is the key to immortality.

In exploring the vast city controlled by corporations and highlighted by gang wars, players must customize their character’s cyberware, skillset and playstyle to overcome every obstacle they encounter.
