Mihoyo recently revealed two new characters from Inazuma.

Genshin Impact 1.6 is coming in a few days. To be precise the new update drops on 9th May and the preinstall feature is already available. However, some of the Genshin Impact fanbases are not happy with the new update announcement.

From the recent info about the 1.6 “Midsummer Island Adventure”, we learned that it will be a limited-time mode and will only be available for the duration of v1.6. when Genshin Impact 1.7 update rolls out in about a month the islands will disappear into the sea.

While a lot of players are discussing the time gate behind the new content of Genshin Impact, Mihoyo decided to release some new Inazuma characters. Mihoyo recently revealed two new Inazuma characters on their official Twitter page and they are Sayu and Yoimjiya.
