A recent leak by a credible Genshin Impact leaker has apparently revealed the release date about one of the upcoming characters, Ayaka's brother - Ayato.
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.
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.
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.
This means that he will most likely be one of the strongest DPS characters in the game. A recent leak on the Genshin_Impact_Leaks subreddit has revealed the animations for Gorou's Elemental Burst.
Elemental Burst (Q) - Juuga Forward Unto Victory: Gorou deals AoE Geo Damage and creates a field known as General's Glory to embolden his comrades. The field has the following effects:
- It has the same effect as the General's War Banner created by Inazuka All-Round Defense, providing buffs to active characters within the ability's AoE based on the on-field Geo characters
- Generates one Crystal Collapse every 1.5 seconds and deals AeO Geo Damage to one opponent within its radius
- The effect will pull one elemental shard created by the Crystallize Reaction within its AoE to your active character's position every 1.5 seconds.
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.
