A recent Genshin Impact leak has revealed that Arataki Itto might receive his first banner re-run in update 2.7. The update will also bring a new Hydro bow user named Yelan.
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.
However, it seems as though developer Hoyoverse started combining new characters with two banner re-runs for each new Genshin Impact update. A recent leak on the Genshin Impact Leaks subreddit has revealed that Arataki Itto might receive his first banner re-run in update 2.7.
Itto has been a part of the game since Genshin Impact update 2.3 when he was introduced alongside another Geo character named Gorou. Even though Genshin Impact usually tends to introduce re-runs after five updates pass, it seems like Itto could arrive a bit sooner than expected.
Itto is a unique character that thrives on having a good team composition around him. It's safe to say that he is the character who introduced the famous trend of having four Geo characters in the same party. The new character that should arrive in this update is the Hydro bow user, Yelan.
The official livestream for Genshin Impact update 2.6 has confirmed the two banner re-runs that will arrive alongside the new Hydro sword user - Kamisato Ayato. Venti has been confirmed to arrive on the same banner as Ayato. However, his sister Ayaka is scheduled to be the only character to arrive on the second update.
