Genshin Impact's 4.0 update will bring a whole host of new gameplay elements, but let's take some time to appreciate the new animals as well.

Genshin Impact 4.0 adds robot stingrays, lazy seals, and dogs in wigs: anime boy wearing a top hat

Genshin Impact 4.0 goes live this week, and we’re all expecting new gameplay features, engaging Archon Quests, and a unique region to explore. But let’s not gloss over the other additions – the previously unseen creatures that inhabit the anime game‘s Hydro nation. Genshin Impact 4.0 will bring robotic stingrays, sunbathing seals, dogs in full outfits, and much more when the Genshin Impact 4.0 release date arrives.

HoYoverse has been slowly revealing more and more info about Fontaine, including its environments, enemies, and its harmless creatures. The Hydro nation might have some of the most interesting wildlife thus far, especially if you’re a fan of aquatic animals.

As you venture underwater, you’ll run into colorful jellyfish, crabs, octopi, seahorses, and rays. Most of these creatures are actually quite aggressive though, despite their pleasant appearance. There are even robotic versions of some animals, thanks to Fontaine’s technological advancements and energy production.

The more friendly animals are actually found on land. Dog people rejoice, the canines here are plenty and they dress up better than most of your characters do. The guard poodle, gentleman poodle, and lady poodle walk around the city with top hats, wigs, and even armor. We’ve all seen Taroumaru, the clothed Shiba Inu ninja dog in Inazuma, but he was more of a surprising exception.
