The creators of Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail are allegedly making a new Star Wars game. Following the popularity of miHoYo’s anime adventures, the new Jedi game could be a huge success.
According to a post from 4chan (via Reddit), this potential game from miHoYo will be set 300 years after The Rise of Skywalker. Like the upcoming movie with Rey, this game will supposedly focus on a new Jedi order and some kind of looming threat.
Gameplay-wise, the title has been described as an action RPG but with the “closed world” exploration seen in Honkai: Star Rail. Honestly, it sounds like a mix of Honkai and Genshin, which could be ideal to many gamers. Furthermore, seeing the Star Wars universe in an anime-like artstyle would also be pretty interesting.
The leak also claims that the Genshin developer’s new game comes after the popularity of Star Wars Visions on Disney Plus. Disney and LucasFilm are keen to explore the popularity of anime amidst the Star Wars audience.
Like anything from 4chan, take this with a huge grain of salt, though the potential of a game like this is intriguing.
Unfortunately, the game has also been described as a “gacha,” which means players will be encouraged to spend for their favorites. You know people will pay big money to use Anakin Skywalker in beach shorts.
Despite plenty of criticism for the Disney sequels and shows, it seems that this franchise is more popular than ever. In terms of video games, the recently-released Jedi: Survivor is one of the best games in the series. With plans for one more game with Cal Kestis, we’re curious as to how this trilogy will end.
There are plenty of Star Wars games for fans to enjoy, no matter what console they’re on. Jedi: Survivor is readily available on the PS5, Xbox Series, and PC. Nintendo Switch fans have a decent amount of options as well, including Lego Star Wars and The Force Unleashed.
