A credible Genshin Impact leaker by the name Ubatcha1 has revealed that the upcoming characters Arataki Itto and Gorou have been scheduled for the second banner of update 2.3.
The addition of a new character is probably the most exciting thing a casual Genshin Impact player is looking forward to, especially in the latter stages of the game when there aren't as many quests and events to enjoy.
Leaks are pretty common in the Genshin Impact universe. An interesting name has been mentioned numerous times over the last couple of months and his name is Arataki Itto. He was also mentioned by multiple NPCs in the game's main storyline. Apparently, he was beaten by the playable character Kojou Sara who took his Vision. When it comes to his appearance, Itto is described as a tall buffed character with two giant horns on his head.
The official Genshin Impact Twitter account has finally confirmed that we are going to see a new addition to the character roster - Arataki Itto and Gorou. According to a leak on the Genshin_Impact_Leaks subreddit, Itto's ascension stat will be Critical Damage. This means that he will most likely be one of the strongest DPS characters in the game.
Another credible Genshin Impact by the name Ubatcha1 has revealed that Itto and Gorou are set for the second cycle of update 2.3. Going by miHoYo's usual schedule of releasing new updates every six weeks, Itto and Gorou will arrive around November 22.
Itto is not the only character we are going to see in update 2.3. A very familiar face will join him, maybe even on the same character banner. Gorou has been mentioned through leaks over the last couple of months and it seems like players won't have to wait much longer to get their hands on the first Geo Bow user in the game.
He is apparently the leader of the resistance against the Inazuma Shogun. There is no official information about Gorou's rarity but many leaks claim that he will be a four-star character.
