As Genshin Impact players wait for the 2.6 update and the new playable character Kamisato Ayato, HoYoverse has officially announced not just another one, but two upcoming additions to its expanding roster of remarkable characters. 

In a series of tweets, the official Genshin Impact Twitter account revealed details of two future playable characters: Hydro character Yelan and Electro character Kuki Shinobu

And just a couple of hours after this official announcement, a Genshin Impact Leaker said, “Kuki Shinobu is a healer.” 

While fans are excited to finally see an Electro Healer in the game, HoYoverse is yet to provide more details about the character. In fact, unlike Yelan who was leaked to be a bow user, there is still no information about Kuki Shinobu’s weapon. 

Moreover, it’s noteworthy that, unlike most characters, Kuki Shinobu’s design was kept secret by the developers until a few hours before her official announcement.

It can be recalled that Yelan’s character design leaked a month ago. As for Kuki Shinobu, a fanart falsely circulated online as her character design. 

While there is yet a lot to learn about the two characters, especially Shinobu, it’s safe to expect to see them in the 2.7 update. 

Genshin Impact is an action role-playing game developed by miHoyo, now HoYoverse. It’s available for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Android, iOS, and PlayStation 5 while a release on Nintendo Switch is currently in the works.
