Genshin Impact continues to be extremely popular around the world. However, a new open-world title with strikingly similar designs has been discovered. 

Genshin Impact has continued to garner huge amounts of attention around the world, so much so, that similar games have started cropping up. The latest game to garner attention from fans is Dragon and the End of the World – an upcoming open-world game that has a striking resemblance to miHoYo’s popular free-to-play title. 

While it’s not uncommon for developers to be influenced by other popular games, many Genshin Impact fans believe this new title is a little too close in its overall design and mechanics. In fact, Genshin Impact YouTuber, OnGame Too, listed a number of areas that appear to be copied from miHoYo’s game.

Even the game’s combat looks eerily similar to Genshin Impact.

One of the first similarities that were discovered by OnGame Too was the main protagonist’s similarities to Dainsleif – Genshin Impact’s mysterious blonde-haired character. Not only do both characters feature the same clothing, but they also share the same color scheme. 

Aside from this, the UI itself appears to have a similar World Event notification and a near-identical gacha animation for the game’s character Wishes. Even Dragon and the End of the World’s equipment screen shares an uncanny resemblance to Genshin Impact’s Artifact loadouts. 

OnGame Too also found that a number of locations from the game had an eerily similar look to them when compared to locations found across Teyvat. Eagle-eyed Genshin Impact fans even noted that one of the game’s characters had an ability similar to Zhongli’s Elemental Burst.

Whether miHoYo will take action on this new title remains to be seen, but it certainly won’t be the first time a mobile game has attempted to make a clone of the popular title.
