Genshin Impact—last year’s runaway hit RPG—may see itself inside Sony’s next-gen console. According to a report by Gematsu, a native PlayStation 5 version of the game has recently been rated by Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee. A native PS5 version of Genshin Impact means that players can fully utilize the key features of Sony’s next-gen console, in terms of graphics and processing capabilities. It also ensures smooth gameplay and the use of special PS5 features, including Dual Sense integration with its haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
Genshin Impact is currently available on multiple platforms, including PlayStation 4 and Windows, as well as Android and iOS. Game developer miHoYo has yet to announce native PS5 expansions as of this writing, but expectations and excitement have mounted all over social media regarding the said leak. With players excited to bring in the colorful world of Teyvat and its residents in crisp 4K 60 FPS gameplay.
Genshin Impact has become one of 2020’s biggest games, first dominating the mobile market, garnering both “Best Game of 2020” for Android and “Best iPhone Game of the Year 2020” for Apple. Lauded for its breathtaking open world and well-polished gameplay that would give it a AAA impression but is actually free-to-play.
Great Ace Attorney Chronicles also coming to PS4 and Switch
Apart from Genshin Impact, other monumental titles have also been rated by Taiwan – speculating for a potential release. This includes The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles which, according to rumors, will contain both The Great Ace Attorney and The Great Ace Attorney 2 and will be available for PlayStation 4, PC and Nintendo Switch.
Gematsu also revealed the iconic Ratchet & Clank is making a comeback to Sony’s next-gen console with Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, with both standard and digital deluxe editions of the game being rated by the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee.
Nintendo Switch titles including Tales from the Borderlands, SnowRunner and Secret Neighbor also received ratings from the board and expected a possible future release sometime soon.
While it might be too early to tell or even speculate that Genshin Impact is getting a native PlayStation 5 version within the next few months, the confirmation of a rating issued to Genshin now gives hints to the community that perhaps a PS5 version of the game is in the works.
It would be a missed opportunity for miHoYo to not further capitalize PS5’s massive sales and incredible demand since its release last year. Not to mention the salient feature of 4K 120 FPS gaming which will trump out even console rivals and be on par with high-end gaming rigs, providing an unmatched breathtaking visual and gaming experience of Genshin Impact to its players.
