Although it belongs to a completely different genre from Genshin Impact, Honkai: Star Rail attracts a large number of gamers from its predecessor, so what is the reason?
Honkai: Star Rail is currently one of the games that attracts the attention of the gaming community, especially gamers from the two games in the same house, Honkai Impact 3 and Genshin Impact. Honaki: Star Rail is said to be the story set after the end of the story at Honkai Impact 3 and it uses the multiverse element quite a lot in the plot. With such a fantasy storyline, Honkai: Star Rail is expected to be very attractive to the gaming community even if they play Honkai Impact 3 and Genshin Impact, even though its genre is a hit genre. in turn.
After a long time of development, Honkai: Star Rail will finally be officially released on April 26. Currently, many gamers are extremely excited and looking forward to the release date to be able to experience the game. Most of the gamers who are interested in the game have a lot of Genshin Impact gamers. So why is this game so attractive to Genshin Impact players even though its genre is completely different? Let’s discover together with MGN now.
Different genres but have many similarities
In addition to having different combat mechanics, Honkai: Star Rail and Genshin Impact really have a lot of similarities. The first thing to mention is that the graphics and character design style are very similar. Right from the first eye contact, it is not difficult to realize that these two games are from the same manufacturer and even sometimes you can be confused if you do not pay close attention to the style of costume design.
Honkai: Star Rail before launch has revealed a lot of information that will be in this game. One of them is the content that will be released permanently such as “Endless Hall” with the same function as “Roaning Deep Scene” in Genshin Impact. That means this content can completely be end-game content for players to try out their characters.
Genshin Impact has strengths in designing characters with shapes inspired by many different cultures around the world, and the plot behind these characters is also very invested and in-depth. . And coming to Honkai: Star Rail, it is certain that HoYoverse will not let a game that has been invested and promoted heavily and also entices gamers from Genshin Impact to be disappointed because of the story line of the universe. Honkai has also been highly regarded. Therefore, if you are a story player, you can rest assured about this aspect in Honkai: Star Rail.
The novel gameplay is also a unique attraction
One thing is for sure, HoYoverse will not create a competitor to the game that has made them stronger at the present time. If Genshin Impact has an open world and action role-playing element at the core of the combat system, in Honkai: Star Rail, we will experience the game that also has an open world element but an action element. The action will require more tactics as well as the player’s computing ability.
If you’ve played this turn-based game a lot, you probably know how it works. Being able to win a match depends on a lot of factors, not just the player’s ability to dodge attacks or reflexes. From what we can see from the Closed Beta, it can be seen that building a character in Honkai: Star Rail will be more demanding and therefore this can be a ‘depressive’ game. no less than Genshin Impact in terms of character building.

Is it necessary to play Honkai Impact to play Honkai: Star Rail?
The answer is no. Of course, if you have played Honkai Impact 3 and understand the plot of this game, everything will become easier to understand for you. In fact, the universe at Honkai: Star Rail is not closely related to Honkai Impact 3. It is simply a stepping stone to explain part of the plot at Honkai: Star Rail. Specifically, the plot of Honkai: Star Rail is Welt Yang’s journey to another world after ending the story at Honkai Impact 3.
Although you can completely encounter familiar characters in Honkai Impact 3 such as Bronya, Seelie, … but Bronya and Seelie in the universe of Honkai: Star Rail are completely different characters, not two. which we got to know in Honkai Impact 3. That’s why we can see Seelie seem serious, belligerent and also don’t know how to call “Bronya onee-chan” anymore.
