Ice skaters perform Genshin Impact themed routine
In honor of two of Genshin Impact’s popular characters, two ice skating fans perform a special routine telling the story of Yae Miko and Raiden.
There are very few mobile video games that have achieved the same level of success as Genshin Impact. Released in 2020, the title has shown no signs of slowing down with its frequent updates bringing new characters, weapons, and even new lands for players to explore. Fans around the world are incredibly loyal to the game and use their adoration to create awesome artwork almost every day. Two fans in particular have used costume making as an artistic medium to create a wonderful ice skating routine in honor of Genshin Impact.
Due to the popularity of the HoYoverse title, it’s hard to find a player who doesn’t know how many characters Genshin Impact has at this point. This is mainly due to the fact that Genshin is a Gacha game, which means that players currently have to use a specific game to try their luck against rather low odds in order to obtain characters that rotate with each update.
In Malaysia, two Genshin Impact fans took to an ice rink inside their local mall to perform a story-inspired routine between two characters. These two characters are Raiden Shogun, the puppet version of a lost Archon, and Yae Miko, the Archon’s former familiar kitsune. The lore behind them is tragic, as Yae Miko wishes to save Raiden from herself, and now fans can watch him perform on the ice in a video shared on Reddit.
The level of detail the fans put into their performance can be seen immediately as they are accompanied by music from the Inazuma region game as they perform in full costume. The characters’ voice lines speak over the music to aid the narrative with their movements. The Yae Miko performer has also apparently avoided changing costumes too much, which means they handle the cold of the rink with a fair amount of skin, which further shows their dedication.
Not only is there a crowd around the area watching them perform in the video, but the comments on Reddit are also filled with fans enjoying the routine. Some viewers commented asking if Yae Miko’s fall at the start of the video was intentional, and the ice skater reassured people that it was to make their fight look realistic.
This ice skating routine is another example of pure dedication Genshin Impact fans have for the game. This creative homage to the history and lore found in the world of Teyvat is sure to be remembered by many loyal gamers, as will other touching stories like the fan who received a replica Dawn Winery bottle for his birthday.
Genshin Impact is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, and mobile devices with a Switch version in development with no release date yet.
