    Mihoyo also makes Honkai Impact 3rd, which is an action brawler game, on mobile, that actually has a lot of varied event content, besides just brawler stages. Controls are surprisingly tight on a controller, if playing on PC emulator, and it looks like they've added that action combat into this game, as well as their cell shaded look in graphics. Can't recall, but this seems like the first Chinese MMO to actually gain some global attention, though I can't image it becoming a hit outside China. Still interested to see what they accomplish, as Honkai has some top tier JP VA in the Japanese version, and they are constantly adding new content and rapidly bringing up global/SEA to Chinese server's content plus going to Cons over here and promoting in Japan.

    So I got into the beta. It's basically BotW mixed with Tales, Xenoblade, and various action games. Lots of mixed together systems here, and it feels great to play. Can't wait to try it on mobile.

    Wait, so is this gacha crap or a legit game?

    Legit game, so far. No gacha rolling or even a cash shop available in the beta, though that might be an interesting take on it. No idea if that's planned though I'm sure a cash shop will be; very big Breath of the Wild presentation in terms of the graphics, which are crisp, HD, and it's physics engine. Burn grass, and float up/gliding with your outfit capes, kill a camp for a chest, cooking is an identical presentation, and other mechanics directly taken, which I can see a lot of people getting pissed over, but we'll see. Story is nothing like BoTW though, from what I've seen.

    Story is nothing like BotW insofar as this game actually has a story. The dungeons are also quite interesting and I assume that's where the co-op will eventually go (there are major mechanics that are clearly built for it).


    The elemental combo system makes combat so much better than any other game like this honestly.

    It also fixes my main problem with BotW: exploring gives you a currency that has meaningful rewards attached to it.

    I’m slowly dipping my toes into the beta as well, maybe have only put in about an hour?
    In route to the first town/city, I am enjoying it a whole lot though.

    Their matchmaking and co-op stability is shit, in HI3, so that's the one area I'm concerned with.

    *edit*
    Here's a shot from the top of the zone area called Draonspine, looking north; you can bypass the barrier they put up by swapping characters and dashing repeatedly to avoid the NPC redirecting you back to the playable area. That's all explorable, and it's somehow gonna be on mobile.
