Thanks to a credible Genshin Impact leaker called Lumie, we may already have the confirmed release date for one of the upcoming characters - Sangonomiya Kokomi.
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.
miHoYo has already announced a couple of new characters on their official social media accounts. Those characters include Kazuha, Ayaka, Yoimiya and Sayu. All of these characters are expected to come in the foreseeable future. Recent leaks have revealed a bunch of interesting characters like Gorou, Kokomi, Sara and others.
A recent tweet from a credible Genshin Impact leaker called Lumie has revealed the release date for the fan-favourite Sangonomiya Kokomi. The tweet claims that Kokomi will get released on the second part of update 2.1 which should drop on September 1. This means that Kokomi will hit the liver servers on September 21.
Many players were expecting her to be a four-star, but it seems like Kokomi will actually be a five-star character. The fanbase already gave her the nickname - Five-star Barbara referring to the already existing Hydro character - Barbara.
Her weapon of choice will be the Catalyst which makes her the second five-star Hydro Catalyst character, besides Mona. As you can see in the video above, upon activating her Elemental Burst, Kokomi will be able to run on water, which is similar to Mona's sprint interaction.
We don't have any official information about her Elemental Skill or Burst but it seems like her Burst will give some sort of buffs for a short period of time which hints that she could be a good support or healer.
