DOES GENSHIN IMPACT RIP OFF ZELDA: BREATH OF THE WILD?
Genshin Impact is a mobile/PC game that is currently in closed beta. Since the first trailer, fans have pointed out that the game looks a lot like Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Some claim it's more of a rip-off than a tribute. I mean, just in the screenshot above, you can certainly see that the game is walking the razor's edge when it comes to inspiration over appropriation.
Beta players are now seeing just how closely Genshin Impact mimics Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game's opening moment looks almost exactly like Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The item management is extremely similar as well. Your main character can climb the overworld, but is limited by a stamina gauge. The game's enemies hide out in buildings extremely similar to where Bokoblins hang while waiting for Link. The comparisons go on and on.
Does Genshin Impact come to close to the game it's clearly inspired by, or is there enough of a difference for the two games to exist without Nintendo getting worked up?
