It seemed that Genshin Impact was a completely separate game, but it turned out to have an interesting connection with HoYoverse’s Honkai universe.
HoYoverse has a habit of bringing characters into its games with different contexts and situations. This is evident in the case of Bronya and Silver Wolf, the former being a playable character in both Honkai Impact 3 and Honkai Star Rail. Her appearance and strength are based on Bronya’s identity in Honkai Impact, but she seems to have taken on a life of her own in the Honkai Star Rail universe.
Players interested in the storylines of HoYoverse titles also know that while the characters look like they’ve jumped from game to game, their looks, personalities, and even skill sets are could be completely different. As a result, some fans may wonder what the connection is between these three games, let alone whether they are linked.
Honkai Star Rail is HoYoverse’s newest game, which was released on April 26, 2023. It has been a follow-up to Genshin Impact and has enjoyed huge success since its launch in 2020. Arguably that these two games are where they are today is due in part to the success of Honkai Impact 3 released in 2016, which has since set the tone for HoYoverse’s signature interface and storytelling style.
Overall, both the latest games are more or less “paying homage” to Honkai Impact in different ways, the most important of which is owning characters with a different identity in this universe. but also a different version of the original Honkai universe.
HoYoverse’s Game Relationship
Gamers who love HoYoverse games may have spotted a hint of a connection between the titles in Honkai Impact 3rd’s Fallen Rosemary trailer in 2020. Accordingly, the video has an interview. with the game’s storyteller and they discussed the final chapter of chapter 17 of Honkai Impact 3.
In it, Overseer Otto is seen observing other worlds using the Imaginary Mile. One of the things he saw was Genshin Impact’s Dvalin, one of the famous elemental dragons in Teyvat.
The Illusory Mile is known to be the source of life, the universe, and the bubble world in Honkai Impact 3rd. This could be a reference to the Yggdrasil Tree in Norse mythology, which is not surprising since HoYoverse games are known to reference mythological material from different countries.
However, Illusion Kilometers appear to be larger and more extensive in scale than the Norse Mythological version. It has millions of branches, each with a different civilization, and its branches are all bubble universes of their own. In contrast, the Yggdrasil Tree has only nine realms.
There is no official and specific information in the plot of any HoYoverse games about what the bubble universe is. Instead, gamers are speculating that these are parallel universes. This may explain why there are multiple versions of a character in different titles, each with a different personality and lifestyle.
This is evident on the Honkai Star Rail character Himeko, who is also a character in Honkai Impact 3rd. In Honkai Impact, she is a scientist as well as a Valkyrie in the Assault Squad and later becomes a teacher.

In Honkai Star Rail, she is also a scientist, but she has no memories of her past, except that she began her pioneering journey by becoming the Navigator for the Astral Fleet. .
Genshin Impact is also a world that exists in the Fantasy Knot of the Honkai universe
During the recent Game Developers Conference (GDC), Haoyu Cai, CEO of miHoYo, discussed why they wanted to create Genshin Impact. He refuted claims that they took advantage of the popularity and popularity of open world games at the time of their release to make the game more known.
Instead, Haoyu Cai says that miHoYo’s goal since 2014 has been to create a “Honkai universe”. In the same month of the talk, the company also launched a publishing subsidiary called “HoYoverse” for markets outside of China and has since changed its name to this subsidiary.
There is no doubt that miHoYo’s Honkai Impact 3, Genshin Impact, and Honkai Star Rail are closely related, as evidenced by the in-game plot information and developer interviews confirmed receive information.
However, it seems that they do not exist in the same rule or continuum. Instead, they can be thought of as parallel universes of each other, with popular characters existing as variations, much like the Spider-Verse movies or the MCU’s multiverse.
