A recent Genshin Impact leak reveals more information about one of the upcoming characters Yelan. She's expected to arrive in Genshin Impact update 2.7.
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.
A recent leak on the popular Genshin Impact leaks subreddit has revealed that Yelan will not be Hydro character even though multiple leaks have been hinting that she's a Hydro sword character
An interesting tweet from a credible Genshin Impact leaker called Dimbreath has revealed the character for one of the upcoming characters - Yelan. Her abilities have not been revealed yet but many players speculate that she could be a Dendro character.
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.
Even though Yae Miko is not even released yet, the official Genshin Impact Twitter account has already announced the arrival of another popular character, the long-awaited Kamisato Ayato. He is Ayaka's brother and the head of the Kamisato clan.
