Genshin Impact is expanding into everything from the looks of it. The developers have officially announced that a TCG (Trading Card Game) is in the pipeline and would soon release in Genshin 3.3 update. Also, the devs revealed that this Genshin Impact TCG feature will be permanent.

We’d like to remind you that HoYoverse has not put out a permanent mini-game, a broad category under which a TCG falls, since fishing, which was released in patch 2.1.

The name that has been given to this TCG is Genshin Impact Genius Invokation. It’s a famous card game among the lands of Inazuma and Sumeru. Invented by the scientists at the Sumeru Akademiya, it’s a pastime for children.

With Genshin Impact 3.3, which unlocks the Cat's Tail bar, one of the game's first locales, Genius Invokation TCG will be made available. Genius Invokation is known to have both PvE and PvP modes, with prizes only tethered to the former according to leakers and data miners.

This Genshin Impact Trading Card Game is sure to have its system of complexity, much like everything else, but also a lot of unique features to enjoy. So, without further ado, let’s get right into it all the leaks of Genshin Impact TCG, including its gameplay, characters, release date, and much more.

Genshin Impact TCG release date

The leaks that were circulating before had us assuming that the TCG would be coming to be Genshin Impact in patch 3.2. But the developers have announced that it is in patch 3.3 that we can expect this Genshin Impact TCG to go live.

Now, the release date of patch 3.3 is December 7, 2022, if all goes as planned.

Additionally, it's anticipated that Genshin Impact's new card game will let gamers compete against well-known NPCs, including potential 4- and 5-Star characters from every region. Additionally, there are suggestions that the Cat's Tail in Mondstadt will become accessible, enabling players to go inside and challenge other NPCs to a game of Genius Invokation.

The numerous cards that are available include both well-known characters from the playable roster and recognizable NPCs, including Liben and Katheryne, according to photographs that have leaked.

Of course, depending on HoYoverse's final choice, all of this could change.

Genshin Impact TCG gameplay leaks

At the moment, we have lots of written words in the form of leaks to tell us about the Genshin Impact TCG gameplay. Well, we do have a footage leak too, but miHoYo is known to take strict action on such leaks, so we will simply put a link for you.

Essentially, you will have to gather a deck of cards, stack them up in order, and then play against other people. The cards will have the famous characters of Genshin Impact on them.

So you will be up against characters like Arataki Itto, Kamisato Ayato, and Cyno. To overcome them, you will have to use every defense you have at your disposal.

As a player, you will have to pick five cards from your stack and then draw a character card that will act as the Active Character. After this selection round, eight elemental dice are rolled in each round. The outcome of this will lead the way for the action to be taken by each side. Also, out of these eight dice, one will be an Omni die, meaning it will serve the purpose of a wild card.

Most probably, the victor is the player who defeats the Active Character card of the opponent.

Recently, Ubatcha gave a detailed explanation of the Genshin TCG gameplay and revealed that apart from the 25 characters mentioned before, a small number of regular game enemies (like the Electro Hypostasis) can also be used as active/inactive characters.

Genshin TCG gameplay - Small Overview:

Three characters and 27 more cards—including event cards, support cards, equipment cards, action cards, and artifacts cards—make up a deck. A Trading Card Game begins with you selecting an active character; only this character is capable of engaging in combat with the foe and taking damage from them. Later, you might change it.

You then throw a die. With the exception of Omni-dice, which any element can use, you require a particular element's elemental dice in order to play a particular element character. Some cards from your deck are also given to you. The dice and cards can be rerolled once.

Each character possesses a burst and a variety of skills. Use the relevant elemental dice to play these. You require energy in addition to elemental dice to use the burst; you can obtain energy via support cards, for example, or by assaulting the opposition.

You can also give up and burn a card to change another character's elemental dice into your own.

When you make an attack, your turn is over and the enemy's turn begins. The majority of cards don't require a turn and are referred to as quick action cards. Other support cards can also prevent some turn-consuming operations from costing a turn (such as switching characters).

Your character can also equip cards for weapons and artifacts. Up until you run out of dice, you and your opponent utilize and consume dice to attack and play cards. In the following round, the person who does it first gets to go first. The next round begins after both sides have declared the current round to be over, and everything is resumed from square one.

You throw the dice, pull a couple more cards from the deck, and so on. Given that there are numerous turns included inside a single round, it is crucial to keep in mind the distinction between a turn and a round. Once everyone has taken an adequate number of rounds and used all of their dice, the round is over.

  • Rounds: At the start of each round, each player draws 5 Action Cards and roll 10 octahedron dice. Each dice will roll into an element (7 plus a wild card element). You may reroll your dice for once. Dice are used to casting character skills or use Action Cards.
  • Turns: At the start of each round, each player gains 2 Action Cards. Within each round, players take turns as they use their dice to:
    • use one ability of the active character
    • swap your active character with a standby character (at the cost of 1 dice)
    • use Action Cards

We have seen 7 objectives of Genshin TCG via leaks, check them out below:

  • Buy 5 cards in the card shop

Genshin Impact TCG - Elemental Reactions

As per the leaks, there are 11 possible Genshin TCG reactions. Check each of them below:

  • Vaporize - Vaporize can deal +2 DMG bonus when triggered. No matter which element will be applied first, it will be the same +2 bonus DMG.
  • Melt - Melt can deal +2 DMG bonus when triggered. No matter which element will be applied first, it will be the same +2 bonus DMG.
  • Overload - Overload can deal +2 DMG bonus when triggered. No matter which element will be applied first, it will be the same +2 bonus DMG. It automatically makes your opponent switch their card to their standby card.
  • Superconduct - Superconduct can deal dmg to the entire opponent's cards. No matter which element will be applied first, it will be the same +1 bonus DMG.
  • Electro-Charged - Electro-Charged can deal dmg to the entire opponent's cards. No matter which element will be applied first, it will be the same +1 bonus DMG.
  • Frozen - Frozen can make your opponent's active card can't do anything. The only one they can do is wait to receive Pyro DMG or Physical DMG from you OR switch their card to their standby card. When the round ends, the freeze effect will be gone.
  • Crystallize - Can be applicable to Pyro, Hydro, Electro, and Cryo aura. There is no elemental shield like how crystallize does on the overworld. It will instantly give you 1 shield point and can reduce your opponent's attack dmg. When receiving the dmg, the shield point will decrease.
  • Swirl - Swirl is a powerful reaction in TCG. Can deal dmg to the entire opponent's card. With swirl, you can trigger other reactions as well such as Overload, Electro-Charged, Melt, and so on as long as there are auras on the opponent's cards.
  • Burning - Burning will summon Blazing Flame which can attack the opponent at the end of the round. Can be stacked up to 2 points. 2 Points can be reached if you can manage to trigger a burning reaction 2 times in 1 round OR use the Amber buff card (the card effect is to add 1 point to your summoned entity).
  • Quicken (Aggravate and Spread) - There are no Spread or Aggravate reactions in TCG. They are unified into Quicken and deal the dmg bonus through Catalyzing Field that can be triggered 3 times. Only Dendro or Electro dmg can consume Catalyzing Field stacks.
  • Bloom (Hyperbloom and Burgeon) - There are no Hyperbloom and Burgeon in TCG but they are unified into a Bloom reaction. Triggering bloom gives you Dendro Core that can be used to deal more dmg as long as you use Pyro or Electro DMG. Triggering Bloom again will increase the number of Dendro Core.
  • Dendro + Cryo - No elemental reaction for this. They can co-exist like on the overworld. But whenever you trigger a reaction using another element, only the latest element that was previously applied can be triggered. In short, there is no double reaction that can be happened.

Genshin Impact TCG characters and cards

Genshin TCG Cards:

From all the discussion we had above, it is obvious that this Genshin Impact TCG is going to be a fun game for players from all walks of life. Apparently, more than 220 cards are up for collection.

Among these, each player uses a deck of 33 cards, which include 3 Character Cards (out of a selection of 27) and 30 Action Cards (out of a selection of 92). Each Character Card has 10 HP. You win the game by defeating all 3 characters in your opponent's deck.

Character Cards: Every Character Card has 3 abilities: normal attack, skill, and burst (adapted from the playable character, with some changes). All 3 abilities have no cooldown and consume dice. Burst also costs energy, which can be accumulated by using a normal attack or skill.

Action Cards

  • Equipment (e.g. sac sword which creates dice upon using skill)
  • Artifacts (elemental damage buff)
  • Support (various effects)
  • Event (triggers effect under certain conditions)
  • Discarding an Action Card converts one dice to the element of the active char.

And there’s always the element of bragging involved in card games. To incorporate that into this game, HoYoverse will introduce the rare Golden Card variants.
