Apple CEO Tim Cook continues his tour of China and has now met the “phenomenal team” behind the popular game and former Apple Design Award winner “Genshin Impact”.

According to the South China Morning Post, that includes stopping at the Shanghai headquarters of miHoYo, the developer of “Genshin Impact.” In 2021, that game won the Apple Design Awards in the “Visual and Graphics” category.

“Nice meeting with the creators behind award-winning iPhone and iPad games like Genshin Impact,” Cook wrote in a post on China’s microblogging service Weibo, as seen by the publication. “Thanks to the phenomenal team at miHoYo for showing me how to create immersive fantasy worlds for everyone to enjoy on the App Store.”

Cook usually posts from his tours on Twitter, but this post and a selfie image were a Weibo exclusive. Tim Cook reportedly has 1.54 million followers on the service, and his post – written in both English and Chinese – received 1,200 comments in the first few hours.
