In the first episode, GameRefinery’s Chief Game Analyst (US), Erno Kiiski, and Chief Game Analyst (China), Kalle Heikkinen, will go through the key elements of Genshin Impact’s mobile game version.

Genshin Impact is yet another example that blurs the line between “HD” gaming and mobile – it looks amazing, tells a compelling story, and, most importantly, dares to cast core gameplay into a central role.

The games certainly share common elements in the art style and open-world mechanics, but there are differences.
