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.
