Since arriving in 2020, has Genshin Impact has expanded its playable roster to fifty characters, with Kamisato Ayato being the most recent addition. It is available for a limited time as part of the double banner that includes the Anemo Archon Venti.

While Genshin Impact Version 2.6 has just arrived, developer Hoyoverse has already confirmed the two new characters that will appear in the upcoming update. A few interesting beta leaks have already revealed a lot of information about the mysterious member of the Arataki gang.

An interesting post on the topic Genshin Impact Leaks subreddit features a video showing the gameplay animations for one of the upcoming characters, Kuki Shinobu. The community seems very happy with their animations as the thread garnered almost 8,000 upvotes. What drew the most attention was her third basic attack, in which Kuki spins up in the air while throwing five shuriken. The video was captured from the stream Genshin Impact Update 2.7 Beta and while Hoyoverse could still make some small adjustments, most of their kit will likely still remain the same.

These leaks further confirm that Kuki will be another Genshin Impact Support character, although rumored to be a new DPS. Even though there is no official confirmation, the current beta has confirmed that it will have a lower rarity. That means their potential is a bit lower compared to five-star characters, which didn’t sit well with the community. Several replies in the comments section claim that being a four star character is a shame for such a well designed character.

Kuki’s Elemental Burst, Goei Narukami Kariyama Rite stabs her sword into the ground, creating a damage barrier for a short time. This ability is useful in fights against a group of opponents, which seems to be its specialty. Her elemental ability, Ring of Sanctification, allows her to create a ring around herself that expands every second, dealing electrical damage in the process. Both of their abilities will scale with HP, meaning players can already start grinding for the right weapon and artifact.

Hoyoverse’s official announcements only revealed Yelan and Kuki Shinobu as new characters, meaning there will be no additional introductions to the playable roster. Both of these characters will have support or sub-DPS potential, meaning players missing a true DPS character in their team composition should probably try their luck on the current double banner, which features a new character, Kamisato Ayato.

Genshin Impact is now available on mobile, PC, PS4 and PS5. A Switch version is in development.
