A popular Genshin Impact leaker has apparently confirmed that Kamisato Ayato will arrive as the first character for the upcoming Genshin Impact Version 2.6.

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 tweet by a credible Genshin Impact leaker named Lumie has revealed that Kamisato Ayato will apparently arrive as the first limited banner character for Genshin Impact update 2.6.

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.

A recent rumor on the same subreddit apparently reveals Ayato's Elemental Skill and Burst description:

  • Elemental Burst (Q) - Ayato leaps in the air and slashes down draining one stack of Kendo Pose. It's recommended to use the Burst when Ayato gathers three stacks of "Kendo Pose"
  • Elemental Skill (E) - When Ayato's skill is activated at the same time an enemy attacks him, he will gain one stack of "Kendo Pose"
