Nintendo Switch Port

Genshin Impact has taken the world by storm since its release in September.

The up to 4 player co-op game is completely free to play and is available on PC, iOS, Android, PS4, and soon to be PS5 and Nintendo Switch.

It has been likened the Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, so that gives you an idea on what to expect from the game.

Because of this, the game has a heavy focus on collecting items to craft weapons, food, and more.

What Are Pinecones?

Filled with oil-rich seeds. Certainly won't be growing into a tree from inside a squirrel's stomach.

They can be used to in the following recipes:

  • Mondstadt Hash Brown
  • Sautéed Matsutake
  • Puppy-Paw Hash Brown

Where To Find Pinecone?

Pinecones can be found across both the Mondstadt and Liyue regions in the world.

But here is a map showing where to find it, courtesy of Genshin Impact Interactive Map.

NEXT-GEN: Genshin Impact will be playable on the Playstation 5 on day 1.

The game will run via backwards compatibility with the PS4 version of the game, as opposed to a fresh PS5 build.

miHoYo have confirmed that the PS5 version will offer better graphics and faster loading times.

Nintendo Switch Port

It is expected that the game will be released on the Nintendo Switch.

The port was originally slated for the end of September when the game left beta.

BOTW CLONE ON SWITCH?: Genshin Impact has been announced for the system, but no release date has been given.

Unfortunately that didn't happen and it is still missing from the hybrid system.

At some point it should be announced, hopefully with the 1.1 update.

Genshin Impact is still missing from the Xbox One/Series X though, and it seems like it may not be coming to the platform, much to fans disappointments.
