Popular voice actors are the new big thing in Genshin Impact

With each day passing by, Genshin Impact is becoming a bigger game worldwide. Naturally, the developers cannot afford to compromise on the quality of the new content they bring to the players.

Voice acting is an essential aspect in a story-heavy game like Genshin Impact. Hence, miHoYo only relies on experienced voice actors to represent its characters.

For instance, prominent Twitch streamer LilyPichu has voiced Sayu in Genshin Impact, which helped make the Anemo ninja a massive hit among fans.
