Genshin Impact Lantern Rite 2023 events and mini-games
The Genshin Impact Lantern Rite 2023 events and mini-games include new story, Paper Theater mini-game, Radiant Sparks parkour challenges, Waverider racing, and combat challenges.
Firstly, the story of the Genshin Impact Lantern Rite 2023 event, The Exquisite Night Chimes, is centred around creating a music festival in Liyue Harbour with old and new friends joining in on the fun, including a special guest from abroad, Yaoyao. We know that rockstar Xinyan will be putting on a musical performance, with the Tone-Deaf Bard, Venti, also making an appearance. Together with Ganyu, players will also be able to learn more about the history of Liyue from Cloud Retainer’s old stories.
The traditional Liyue art makes an appearance with the debut of the Paper Theater event mini-game new to the Genshin Impact Lantern Rite 2023 event. In the Paper Theater, players can move stage sections to guide a paper actor around the stage towards their designated objective, ensuring the paper play goes ahead smoothly. Along the way, there will be devices and traps added into each stage for an extra bit of challenge and fun.
There’s also the parkour game Radiant Sparks appearing in the Genshin Impact Lantern Rite for 2023, in which players race against the clock to collect large, glowing coins. This time, however, players can obtain Sparkling Rush by collecting Aegises of Sparks, turning your character into a firework to break through barriers like Bullet Bill. Fireworks can also be used to dash forward and to launch yourself into the air to collect pesky coins in the sky.
Vigilance at Sea
Waverider racing makes a return with this year’s Genshin Impact Lantern Rite event, featuring more complex and challenging marine environments, such as around a large whirlpool. Some of the Waverider challenges also include puzzles for you to solve, such as The Floating Lanterns’ Mystique tasking you with examining the colour of the fireworks.
Behind the Scenes
Finally, the Genshin Impact Lantern Rite 2023 event will also give players a chance to pit their teams against a range of monsters in combat challenges. These are arranged by Yelan to keep Liyue safe during the busy Lantern Rite festivities.
