The 3.5 update is bringing the Genshin Impact 2023 Windblume Festival with it, and the Windblume’s Breath event is about to begin. To help people prepare, HoYoVerse shared details about the prerequisites to take part. There is also additional information about each of the minigames that will be present when it starts on March 3, 2023.
Now, the entry requirement for Windblume’s Breath is very lenient. You really only need to have completed all three of the Archon Quest prologue acts in Mondstadt. Those are The Outlander who Caught the Wind, For a Tomorrow Without Tears, and Song of the Dragon and Freedom. However, since this year’s event will involve Albedo and characters from Sumeru like Collei and reference their experiences, people who haven’t finished those will need to select the “Quick Start” option. If you don’t, you won’t be able to start the quests necessary to take part in the event storyline and unlock the minigames. As usual, it will be set in Mondstadt.
HoYoVerse already noted that Ballads of Breeze, Breezy Snapshots, and Floral Pursuit will be the three minigames appearing at the Genshin Impact Windblume Festival in 3.5. Ballads of Breeze and Breezy Snapshots are the two returning activities. The former is a rhythm game with different songs that become available over the event. This year, there are three possible instruments to use. Breezy Snapshots tasks people with taking and matching photos. Of the three, Floral Pursuit is the newest one. It is a Pac-Man-like experience in which the Traveler tries to collect balloons via popping them, all while also being chased by hostile balloons, in various maze-like maps.
Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and the 2023 Windblume’s Breath Windblume Festival will run March 3-20, 2023.
