The unofficial Honkai Impact 3rd X Genshin Impact Cross-over is finally officially announced by miHoYo along with a behind-the-scenes video that shares the developer’s side of the story on this new cross-over.
On June 15, 2021, global interactive entertainment developer and publisher miHoYo announces Honkai Impact 3rd is crossing over with its other renowned open-world action RPG Genshin Impact. The popular character Fischl from Genshin Impact will be introduced to Honkai Impact 3rd in v4.9 as the first archer with her own story.
In the behind-the-scenes video released concurrently, the teams working on Honkai Impact 3rd and Genshin Impact will shed light on the backstory, the challenges during production, and the final presentation. In the video, the Genshin Impact team expresses their hope of promoting miHoYo’s quality content with this crossover, and the Honkai Impact 3rd team shares the toughest issue they faced was keeping Fisch’s identity while adapting her combat style.
Crossover fighter Fischl will be the first real archer in Honkai Impact 3rd. Unlike how she functions in Genshin Impact, her gameplay in Honkai Impact 3rd is built around weakspot aiming, which allows players to amp up the damage and hit feedback by aiming for the weakspots of enemies before firing. The team also updated the models, animations, and special effects of Oz to give Fischl a bigger presence and a unique charm.
Aside from Fischl, another popular character Keqing from Genshin Impact will also appear in the crossover story as the guide. She will be a special guest character that can be fully controlled in specific story battles on top of supporting players in the story. The crossover outfit for Theresa will be obtainable in-game.
This crossover will be featured by v4.9 on iOS, Android, and PC, and more details will be revealed soon.
