miHoYo has been constantly expanding the list of characters from Genshin Impact and Kamisato Ayato, Ayaka's brother, may come to the game in future versions
A few days ago, update 2.1 was released for the game that marked the arrival of two new islands of Inazuma, Watatsumi and Serai. With that, a number of new quests and items were made available to players. And there are, so far, five new characters that have already been added to the game in the update released in the first banners that the game has brought so far (Ayaka, Yoimiya, Sayu, Kojou Sara and Raiden Shogun).
Lately, however, miHoYo has been actively suppressing the leaks to keep things from leaking about upcoming updates. miHoYo sued the Chinese video site Bilibili, in order to find 11 different leaks. The Genshin Impact leak community is very active, and these measures forced a number of leakers to leave the site, not to mention the lawsuit against the leaker “The Real Ghost” that was processed by miHoYo at around RM 321.191,15 (Malaysian ringgit), which is approximately 40 reais. In addition, the Honey Impact website, which also housed leaker statistics and information, was down for a while last week.
Of course, that doesn't stop them from continuing their work and revealing to the community what's to come, and now the new leakers are due to an upcoming new character who may soon come to the game. Someone players have heard of before: Kamisato Ayato.
Leak Reveals New Details for Kamisato Ayato
After the process, some leakers announced some major leaks before disappearing, as a “farewell gift” to their fans. One of these more interesting leaks from the popular Genshin Impact leaker, Sukuna, mentions some significant bits of information about some unreleased characters.
According to the leak, there is a new character being tested, and he is the older brother of the already released character Ayaka and the head of Clan Kamisato, and also serves as the Yashiro Commission Emissary, Kamisato Ayato. Here's what the leak indicates according to Sukuna:
- Ayato will be a character who uses sword from the hydro element who can switch to "sword stance" with his elemental ability. We don't know if that means he'll change weapons, like Childe or the Raiden Shogun, or if he'll just change the attack set;
- Ayato was designed based on Zhongli;
- Ayato's elemental blast in his sword form will create a vortex that can attract enemies, and constantly Hydro to them. Characters within the vortex area will receive a 40% hydro damage bonus;
This gives us a lot of information about the character and a lot of fans are looking forward to it now, thanks to his resemblance to Zhongli. We haven't seen the character in the game yet, but three characters, Ayaka, Raiden and Sayu, mentioned him in the game. It will be interesting to see when Ayato will launch in the game.
