A recent Genshin Impact leak has revealed more information about one of the upcoming Genshin Impact characters, the Inazuma detective Shikanoin Heizou.
The official Genshin Impact Twitter account has finally confirmed that we are going to see a new addition to the character roster, the long-awaited Electro user Yae Miko. According to a leak on the Genshin_Impact_Leaks subreddit, Itto's ascension stat will be Crit Rate.
Recent leaks on Reddit have revealed more information about one of the upcoming Genshin Impact characters - 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. All we know about Ayato is that he is Ayaka's brother and the head of the Kamisato clan.
A recent post by a credible Genshin Impact leaker named Lumie shows an interesting image that hints at the new character Shikanoin Heizou. It shows the traditional Japanese weapon named Jitter, however, it's stated that it's not a new weapon type. Heizou could have a change of stance similar to Childe who uses hydro daggers upon activating his elemental skill.
According to multiple leaks , Heizou's character model will apparently be one of the smallest in the game, even smaller than Xiao. This will make him the smallest male character in Genshin Impact.
Ayato is expected to be a Hydro character meaning that he should have great synergy with his sister Ayaka who's a Cryo user. His weapon of choice will be the sword and he will be the second Hydro sword user after Xingqiu. According to most leaks, he should arrive in update 2.6 which, according to miHoYo's usual update schedule should drop around April 10.
