About the Honkai Impact 3rd x Genshin Impact crossover
As a part of this crossover, Crossover fighter Fischl will be the first real archer in Honkai Impact 3rd.

The team also updated the models, animations, and special effects of Oz to give Fischl a bigger presence and a unique charm.
Other than Fischl, another popular character Keqing from Genshin Impact will also arrive in the crossover story as the guide. She will be a special guest character that can be fully controlled in specific story battles on top of supporting players in the story.
