A few months ago, Nintendo fans tossed their amiibo out of the pram when a Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild-inspired title was announced for the PlayStation 4. One particular player was so peeved by the existence of Genshin Impact that he smashed up Sony’s system in protest; others gathered at the Japanese giant’s ChinaJoy booth raising their middle fingers.
Well now the release has been confirmed for the Switch, with a launch date yet to be announced. While the title’s similarities to Zelda are plain to see, it’s all a bit awkward really – we suspect that no Nintendo consoles will be destroyed in response to this news. Nevertheless, this should douse some of the initial negativity – let’s hope everyone has calmed down.
