A “Genshin Impact” anime is on the way thanks to a collaboration with Japanese animation studio Ufotable, which is known for their work on “Demon Slayer.”

Game developers HoYoverse made the announcement alongside a trailer drop on Friday during the game’s Version 3.1 Special Programme stream. The project seems to be in early development with no formal title as of yet, simply being called “Project Launch: Concept Trailer.”

The trailer shows the game’s two protagonists, Lumine and Aether, standing hand-in-hand, a rare sight given that the premise of the game involves the player character on a search for their lost twin. With the game known in part for its environmental landscapes and regions based on real-world places, the trailer leans in on the aesthetics.   

“Genshin Impact” will celebrate its two-year anniversary later this month.
