Many people don’t know the background of the Sumeru region and that its inhabitants worship the God of Wisdom, the Lesser Lord Kusanali. As per the lore of Genshin Impact, Sumeru is one of the seven regions of Tevyat and is a renowned center of learning featuring dense forests and sparse deserts. The God of Wisdom took over the region after the slaying of the previous Dendro Archon nearly 500 years ago. Sumeru has many known subareas like Sumeru city, Sumeru Akademiya, and Avidya Forest.

Genshin Impact is available now for mobile, PC, PS4, and PS5. A Switch version is currently in development with no confirmed release date.
