miHoYo has announced that the Honkai Impact 3rd Genshin Impact crossover event would be coming to Global servers, along with its release date.
According to the Honkai Impact 3rd Twitter, the Genshin Impact Global crossover would start July 11th, and see the addition of a new SP battlesuit, Fischl from Genshin Impact.
Her moveset isn’t 1:1 carried over from Genshin Impact, however, as a lot of changes have been implemented to make her play more like Honkai Impact 3rd’s Valkyries. For example, she has a perfect dodge now, in which she counters with a lightning strike on top of slowing down time.
Similarly, her ult is an AoE effect, using her familiar Oz to create a circle around her dealing damage.
Details On The Genshin Impact Crossover In Honkai Impact 3rd
Fischl isn’t the first crossover character to come to Honkai Impact 3rd, as several months earlier Asuka from Evangelion was added as a limited-time unit. Unlike Asuka, however, Fischl will be a permanent addition to the game.
If the Chinese version of the game is anything to go by, fans can also expect a playable Keqing as a trial character, as well as a new Klee-inspired costume for Teresa as part of the Honkai Impact 3rd Genshin Impact global crossover.
The collaboration was previously announced for the Chinese version of the game, which is one patch ahead of the Global and SEA versions.
