Zenless Zone Zero

If you’re a big Genshin Impact fan, then you’re in luck! Or, if you’re not a fan of Genshin’s more high-fantasy, then this one might be for you. Zenless Zone Zero is set in a future urban-fantasy post-apocalyptic world. I’m not a Genshin player myself, but the setting and the opening theme slaps like it’s an intro for an anime. Might be fun to check out and see what all the fuss is about!
