But now ‘Genshin Impact’ is not alone (now we will clarify this). And it is that today, at 2:00 in the morning, the global servers of ‘Tower of Fantasy‘, an “MMO” with anime aesthetics in the purest ‘Genshin Impact’ style signed by Level Infinite (Tencent), Perfect World (exclusive distributor of CS:GO in China) and Hotta Studio.
