How to setup cross save on Genshin Impact

Today in our on-going series on Japanese mobile game developers, we take a look at one of the lesser-known developers on the scene, Genshin Impact. Founded by ex-Tecmo employees, Genshin is a mobile game company that’s focused on creating a variety of solid RPGs. Most of their games run on the Android platform, but they’ve also released titles for iPhone and iPod Touch.

This post takes a look at Genshin Impact, a cross-platform compatible iPad/Android emulator. It will show how to setup the emulator to access the data saved on a host PC, and how to make the emulator interact with the player through the use of a local database.

I own a Sony Xperia Z Ultra and a Nintendo 3DS, and I was looking to set up cross save between them. Sadly, it is not as easy as it is on other consoles. Sony and Nintendo have their own services for cross save, but they are very different. Sony’s “One Play” is a cloud based service that requires a subscription to the PlayStation Plus service. This means that you need to be a Sony customer to use it.

Genshin Impact previously only permitted cross-play, but with the latest version, players of the game may also cross-save data across their PC and PSN accounts.

Is there a cross save in Genshin Impact?

At the present, cross-saving is available in the game, but only for PSN and PC gamers. For the time being, it seems that Xbox and PC gamers will have to wait a bit longer to play with cross-device saving enabled.

Players on Playstation and PC can now utilize a cross save feature in Genshin Impact, enabling them to take their progress from one platform to another, but there is a catch.

Players who have accounts on both the PSN and the PC will have to choose between the two, as one of their accounts will lose progress as miHoYo will need to combine your accounts in order to enable cross saving.

How can I activate cross-saving with Genshin Impact on existing accounts?

You must contact miHo Yo and request that your accounts be merged in order to play with cross save. You will have to wait for them to respond, so don’t expect this to happen right away.

On new Genshin Impact accounts, how do you allow cross-saving?

The process of enabling cross saving on new accounts is considerably faster and simpler, and you may do it by following the instructions below.

  • On your computer, create a Genshin Impact account.
  • On your PS4 or PS5, go to Genshin Impact and log in.
  • Set up your account on your PS4 or PS5 by following the on-screen instructions; this will also connect your PC account to your PSN account.

Players who already have an account and need to lose progress on one of their accounts while waiting for miHo Yo to reply are now frustrated. Given that this is a new function, we can only hope that the procedure gets more simplified in the future, making account linking simpler for players.

I’m really excited about the Genshin Impact. It’s been a long time since I’ve used a handheld, and I’m looking forward to getting back into the rhythm of it. My old DS was a DS Lite, and it’s been a while since I’ve played on that. I wanted to set up cross save, but I wasn’t sure how to do it..
