Genshin Impact's official character teaser for the upcoming character Arataki Itto includes a couple of Ayato's voice lines. He is expected to arrive in update 2.6.
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.
An unusual voice appeared in the recently revealed Arataki Itto character teaser. Since then it has been revealed that the character is in fact the long-awaited character - Ayato who is best known as the head of the Kamisato clan as well as being Ayaka's brother. Ayato's voice actor is Ishida Akira who is a well-known voice in the anime industry as he appeared in many popular titles such as Naruto, Demon Slayer and Evangelion.
Recent leaks on Reddit have revealed more information about Ayato. He will apparently be released after Yae Miko who is scheduled to arrive in update 2.5. This means that we can expect Ayato around mid-April. The official Genshin Impact 2.3 even announcement account has 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.
Itto's Elemental Burst is called Royal Descent: Itto the Evil! and it allows Itto's inner Raging Oni King to emerge using his Oni King's Kanabou in battle. This state has the following special effects:
- Normal attacks will be converted to Geo damage
- Itto's Attack will be increased based on his Defense
- The first three Normal attack combos will grant Itto one Superstrenght stacks
- Itto will gain 20 per cent Elemental and Physical resistance
