Yelan banner in Genshin Impact 2.7
According to renowned Genshin Impact leaker, Lumie, Yelan will release in the first half of the 2.7 update. This likely means Travelers will be able to spend their Primogems on her banner when the 2.7 update goes live.
HoYoverse recently confirmed that Yelan has a Hydro vision, which she uses to obliterate her enemies. Early gameplay has revealed that Yelan will wield a Bow, while leaked renders of Yelan also confirm this.
Yelan is said to be a “mysterious person who claims to work for the Ministry of Civil Affairs,” while she often appears in various guises. Quite how she will use her Hydro abilities remains to be seen, but for now, that’s all the information we have on the Valley Orchid.
Xiao banner rerun in Genshin Impact 2.7
According to notable Genshin Impact data miner Ubatcha, Yelan’s banner in update 2.7 will be accompanied by Xiao. Although this remains a mere leak as of now, the possibility of the fan-favorite character making a return has gotten the community excited.
The five-star rated Anemo-elemental character was last available in January 2022, and if Xiao does get a banner rerun, it’ll be the character’s third including the release banner of the polearm-wielding Adeptus.
Kuki Shinobu banner in Genshin Impact 2.7
Kuki Shinobu is rumored to release in the second half of the 2.7 release, which will likely be revealed three weeks into the update, on June 21, 2022. Unlike Yelan, the current Genshin Impact leaks have discovered that she is a 4-star character.
HoYoverse revealed that Kuki Shinobu is the Deputy Leader of the Arataki Gang. This Electro Sword user is often responsible for keeping Itto’s antics in check. While no Kuki Shinobu gameplay has been revealed, Sayu notes that the Mender of Tribulations is Itto’s “little sidekick”, stating that “birds of a feather flock together”.
It’s uncertain whether Shinobu will have unique interactions with Itto or if her abilities will synergize with the 5-star Geo Oni. We’ll likely hear more details on the character’s abilities in the weeks and months to come.
Genshin Impact 2.7 trailer leak
Despite the update being delayed, a video of the 2.7 trailer has been leaked ahead of its official reveal. In the video, Travelers get a glimpse of Yelan and Kuki Shinobu — with both characters showcasing their Elemental Skills and Bursts.
