Genshin Impact Reconfirms New Character: Genshin Impact developer Mihoyo debuted an updated trailer at the 2021 Game Awards that showcased games for the upcoming characters as well as a brand new teaser.
In the 2021 Game Awards, developer miHoYo unveiled a brand updated Genshin Impact gameplay trailer. The trailer showed a number of brand new characters playing: Gorou, Arataki Itto, Naganohara Yoimiya, and Sanganomiya Kokomi.
The majority of the trailer showed the gameplay that included Gorou and Itto which will be added to the Genshin Impact roster with the 2.3 updates released on December 15.
The trailer appears to show two significant issues, the first of which is the introduction of a new boss. Four characters, especially Gorou and Itto, are shown fighting in battle with a new boss-type opponent.
This is a serpent flying with a wolf-like head. The black and gold hue strongly suggests that it is a boss of the Geo type. This could also explain why the two Genshin Influence Geo-type characters were employed to eliminate it.
If this boss is a Geo enemy, it would be the third Geo boss in the game, along with Geo Hypostasis and Primo Geovishap.
The following announcement of the trailer is something that fans are already anticipating. The trailer is just 1 minute 39 seconds and the final 19 seconds contain a unique teaser.
It only shows an attractive young woman wearing red and dark-colored makeup, slowly turning towards the camera. The video’s title, “Genshin Impact – Yun Jin Gameplay Reveal Trailer,” will reveal her name; however it’s misleading because no Yun Jin gameplay is shown.
However, although this announcement is huge, it’s not her first time displaying the new character Yun Jin. Yun Jin’s official character artwork was posted via Genshin Impact‘s official Instagram account on November 22.
The post shared some background information, her personality, and Yun Jin’s type of vision and appearance. The debut of the Shenhe accompanied Yun Jin’s Instagram release about Yun Jin, the brand new Cryo character Shenhe; however, Shenhe was not on the Genshin Impact Game Awards trailer.
Yun Jin, AKA Stage Lucida, is a Geo character with the polearm. She is a Liyue Harbor residence and director of the Yun Han Opera Troupe, making her a prominent figure in Liyue. She appears to possess an impressive voice and musical talent, which has some fans be curious about whether her gameplay will be like that of Barbara, who sings.
MiHoYo has been known to tend to create characters that have Geo visions. Gorou and Arataki Itto are both Geo and are the two most recently added textures to the roster. Yun Jin will be the seventh Geo vision player to join the game, making Geo more prevalent than Anemo or Hydro.
Yun Jin will additionally be the seventh player to use a polearm, and fans are keen to look at how her playstyle is compared to Zhongli’s, who also has an arm and Geo power.
Yun Jin is anticipated to be joining Genshin Impact in the next update 2.4.
Genshin Impact is available now on Mobile PCs, PS4, and PS5. The Switch version is under development.
