Genshin Impact Akitsu Kimodameshi Event: Complete details
Once the event has been started, players will be prompted to visit the Yashiro Commission. Here, they will meet Ayato, who will inform them of the “Test of Courage” event being held in Inazuma. Players will be sent to Chinju Forrest, where they will go through the test of courage. Players should not worry, this part of the story does not involve any combat.
Players must simply go to the locations marked on the map and talk to the NPCs. At one point, players will be able to pick a partner from Kazuha, Ayaka, and Gorou. The choice of partner is irrelevant to the story, so players should just pick anyone. Raiden Ei will show up and inform players of a game being held at the beach. This will be an important location later.
After playing through the rest of the story, players will be sent to the beach. There is a platform built on the shore, where a block-breaking game takes place. This is called Akitsu Yuugei.
Genshin Impact Akitsu Yuugei: Gameplay details
This part of the event involves playing a minigame. This mini-game is very similar to the arcade game called Breakout, which is published by Atari in 1976. Many players will be familiar with this type of gameplay. In this event, there is a twist on the classic breakout gameplay.
There are two types of Akitsu Yuugei matches, namely Leisurely Pastime and Shatterdark. Leisurely Pastime is a simple brick-breaking game with a normal and harder difficulty mode. Shatterdark is a boss battle that also involves brick breaking. The goal is to break the barriers to the boss to be able to damage it. Players should not worry, as it is not too difficult.
Before starting each match of Akitsu Yuugei, players will be allowed to choose up to four members in a party. Players should bring characters with elements that can react with the block types present in the match. The block types can be viewed from the match menu. Players can also choose modifiers to add to the match. Some of these modifiers include a movement speed buff and one where a wall is created behind the player which will reflect any balls that hit it. Each match bans all characters of one particular element from being picked.
When the match begins, the elemental skill button will be replaced with a skill-ball button. Press the button to launch the ball. The bar will be infused with the element of the character controlling it. The ball will be infused with the element of the bar. Players can switch characters to change the element of the bar after the ball has been launched, and change the element of the ball when it hits the bar again. The goal is to break all the bricks by causing elemental reactions.
Akitsu Yuugei: Leisurely Pastime can be played in co-op. Only two players can play it in co-op at any given time. Akitsu Yuugei: Shatterdark can only be played solo.
