Hitekno.com – Genshin Impact has many elements similar to The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild (BOTW). This, of course, sparked a heated debate.


One of them is a video posted on the Twitter account @GamesMenfess comparing Genshin Impact and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.


It seems to be very similar from the animation of climbing, sliding to attacking from height. Also some animations of the specified effects.


We can also see some similar looking herbivores that both hide on the ground and are weak to fire attacks.


In relation to the enemy, we can see the similarities of several enemies scattered along the roadside. And there are still many mechanics in Genshin Impact that are similar to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

This, of course, sparked a debate among gamers who accused miHoYo, the developer of Genship Impact, of mimicking Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.


Ah, I suddenly feel bad from the game“Wrote the sender of the post on the Twitter account @GamesMenfess.


It’s like copying the movement command wkwkwk. Nintendo is usually strict on this. We will wait in the future if there is a lawsuit (but the developer from China is against it, which is difficult)“Wrote @RDTNDR.


But quite a few other players who have defended Genshin Impact have taken inspiration from the Nintendo game and not from plagiarism.


If such a mechanism is not yet common, is it? I know Chara’s design can be copyrighted, but when the game mechanism is copyrighted like this, it’s strange to me“Replied @slurdlordeh.


It’s not like Mihoyo confirmed that he was inspired by Zelda, right. After all, the gameplay is similar, the graphics and the representation of the characters are also different,“Said @aryvillasaurus.


On the other hand, there are also gamers who are fed up with this comparison. Given the free games, just play when you like it and don’t have to play when you don’t.


I am not tired of comparing Mulu … well, it is similar. Just play ..“commented your @MieInstant.


It’s always up to you, games that are up to date need to be analyzed in terms of skills, design etc with other games …“Said @fuwapyoon.

If you look again, the source of inspiration for miHoYo while working on this game isn’t just Zelda. Check out how the sword floating on the back resembles Nier: Automata.


We can see the animated movements of some characters while walking, which is similar to that of Nier: Automata. How his sway and the sword floated on his back.


But the great thing is, Genshin Impact can combine a lot of mechanical and animated elements from different games into an interesting world to explore.


You can play this game yourself for free on various platforms. From PC, Android, iOS and PC. The plan is also pushed onto the Nintendo Switch.


Will Nintendo sue miHoYo for its many similarities to The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild? We’ll see when it comes out on the Nintendo Switch later.


That’s the crowd of players discussing the similarities between Genshin Impact and The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. What do you think?
