Genshin Impact conquers London with massive 6-meter tall Paimon anime girl

Genshin Impact

Chinese publisher and developer miHoYo has conquered London with Genshin Impact, in the form of a massive float on the River Thames.

The huge 6-meter tall “inflatable angel” Paimon float was sailed down England’s iconic river, a subtle nod to China’s emerging dominance not only in finance but also now culture, thanks to anime girls.

Paimon floated past most of London’s landmarks like Big Ben, the Millennium Bridge, London Eye, St Paul’s and South Bank, and ended at the Tower Bridge. Paimon will remain docked at the Canary Wharf on the 3rd and 4th of October, so any of our Britbong readers can go visit her.

This new event was kicked off at the end of September to celebrate miHoYo’s wildly popular MMO/RPG Genshin Impact, which just hit its second birthday. The game remains popular to this day and has amassed more than $3 billion in revenue, a staggering achievement.

Genshin Impact

Paimon is a floating fairy character that accompanies the player character in the game, the Traveller, throughout their magical adventure in the game world of Teyvat and its seven continents. Paimon first shows up at Starfell Lake, where the player fishes her out of the lake.

If you missed Paimon’s maiden voyage through London, as mentioned you can still go and see her in the coming two days at the Canary Wharf:

Genshin Impact is available and free-to-play on Windows PC (via the Epic Games Store and official website), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, AndroidiOS, and coming soon to Nintendo Switch. In case you missed it, you can find our Genshin Impact review here (we recommend it!).
